The Lizard Lounge packs the house with their techno and gothic parties on a weekly basis.

The art walks and art festivals a few times each year pack the streets with visitors.

There are some Mexican restaurants, coffee shops, and other concert venues in Deep Ellum. There is an art park full of murals, too.

It's nice if you live in the area.

I'm talking about nightclubs not restaurants. We can go anywhere for Tex-Mex.

I'm guessing you're driving through during the day. Go to Anvil Pub, La Grange, July Alley, Twisted Root, Cane Rosso, or Tucker's Blues in Deep Ellum on a Friday or Saturday night. It's going to be far from empty. Throw in what's going on at Club Dada, Trees, Prophet Bar, and there is a bit of a scene once again.

The whole reason Deep Ellum is transitioning into a a viable area agian is because they AREN'T trying to be a just a nightclub destination anymore. My god drive by Twisted Root at lunchtime, I can't believe anyone gets in and out in time to be back at work without getting in trouble. Besides, if there were really a market for a hispanic/mexican themed nightclub in Deep Ellum, there would be one.

Adairs: great burgers and great live music with cheap drinks in the evenings.
Sols taco lounge: good tex mex
Twisted root: best burger in dallas
Angry Dog: Great food and a fun place to have a few drinks
Bakers ribs: awesome BBQ

ESPN overwhelmed by a sales pitch ? That's hilarious because they are the ultimate spinners in the sports world. No I think they located their anchor crew/operation in the urban-center that made the most business sense, and that's why it's so tough for downtown Dallas to compete effectively against it's sibling rival.

Fort Worth had their "Touchdown Fort Worth" team court ESPN. While Dallas stayed by the agreement to make it a "North Texas" Superbowl. (Even though everyone in the country thought it was Dallas).

"It was nice to be wanted," said Stephanie Druley, the ESPN senior coordinating producer who helped make the selection.

But Druley had to be convinced. Early on, she planned to locate in Dallas, near the NFL's headquarters location. She would have looked at Fort Worth, just as she looked at Grapevine, Highland Park and other sites.

But Fort Worth's outreach, including a trip to ESPN headquarters, raised awareness and made sure that Sundance got a good hearing. Dinner in Fort Worth with Nolan Ryan and Gary Patterson (and spouses) helped.

So your explanation for the reason FTW landed the ESPN operation was they out-pitched Dallas ? Wow, then Dallas is even in more trouble than I realized. If that city gets knocked around by it's North Texas competitor
in PR battles, Dallas you got a problem.
