Restaurant buzz, escaped convicts and mysterious Mike Tyson: The 5 most popular stories this week
Editor's note: Another week has come and gone, and there's a lot we all probably missed. But we're looking out for you, kid. Here are the most popular stories from this past week:
1. Goodfriend owners plan to open meaty sibling on Lower Greenville called Blind Butcher. Senior editor Teresa Gubbins interviewed Matt Tobin, co-owner of Goodfriend Beer Garden & Burger House, about the soon-to-open, meat-centric restaurant on Lower Greenville called the Blind Butcher. It will go into the old Service Bar space. On the menu: sausage, pastrami and corned beef made by chef Oliver Sitrin, plus lots o' craft beer.
2. Escaped convict shot dead near Grapevine Lake, ending manhunt. Just after midnight on February 16, escaped convict Alberto Morales was shot and killed by authorities in a wooded area near Grapevine Lake. Morales, 42, had been on the lam for four days after a daring escape from police custody outside of a Wal-Mart.
3. Harlem Shake takes over Klyde Warren Park in Dallas. Although there have undoubtedly been a host of unofficial Harlem Shake videos shot in our fair city, the Official Harlem Shake Dallas Edition went down at 11 am, February 16, at Klyde Warren Park. Revelers dressed in a host of wild costumes packed the park for the event organized by Brian Braun, Lights All Night, 106.1 Kiss FM and Electro Innovators.
4. Twin Peaks brings boobs and more beer to Mockingbird Station. Well, there goes the neighborhood. Mockingbird Station takes a not-so-small step away from indie-theater coolness with the announcement of its latest new tenant: Twin Peaks will open this summer in the space next-door to the Angelika Theater.
5. Scheduling conflict shuts down Mike Tyson's Undisputed Truth national tour. Just five days into Tyson's tour, the former boxer-turned-entertainer threw in the towel. Or so his publicist said on February 18, a day before Tyson was supposed to perform at Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie. But fast forward 48 hours, and the tour's back on.
