Tuckers' Blues is Now Open For Business. Problem Is, It Needs to Stay Open Longer.
Back in June we noted that the former Red Blood Club on Commerce Street in Deep Ellum was getting a new tenant -- and, turned out, it was Tuckers' Blues, which had its grand opening about two weeks back. (Friends of Unfair Park highly recommend the joint -- say it reminds 'em of Blue Cat Blues from way back when.) Problem is, when the owners' rep went before the City Plan Commission to get the specific use permit this summer, there was a slight snafu: No one noticed that the SUP didn't let the owners, siblings Dianne and Larry Tucker, open their doors before 8 p.m.
Which ain't exactly good for business, since most of the time Tuckers' will operate as a "bar, lounge, or tavern," per City Hall parlance. Hence the need to go back before the plan commission tomorrow: According to these docs, the Tuckers want to operate from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m., with live music limited from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday through Sunday. Which reminds me: Anyone remember when Naomi's on Canton started serving at 7 a.m.? Now those were the good ol' days.
