Which, I'll assume, is the point of this new promo made by Frisco-based Filmspire Productions. Kinda like a Jerry Bruckheimer movie. But something's missing. Can't quite put my finger on it.

We were trying to think of any significant restaurant closings in Dallas over the last 30 days and nothing, besides that odd moment when Kavala in Oak Cliff shut down then reopened almost immediately.

She pours beers at Frisco's bit of Ireland, otherwise known as Lochrann's. That, of course, means pint after pint (well, not pint--it's the U.S.--but you get the point) of Guinness, that time-consuming, two-stage pour. Fortunately, Lochrann's owner worked for the famous Irish brewery for 15 years. S ... More >>
