The so-called Horror Museum & Chocolate Bar, a new place in Deep Ellum that advertises itself as "the scariest Horror Museum in the world," had what would have to be called a difficult opening night on September 27, with such scathing reviews that the owners shut it down early. Despite the complaints, the owners said on Monday that the show would go on.
2. Dallas' Greenville Avenue loses highly rated barbecue restaurant.

3. Dallas chef Graham Dodds leaves new Oak Cliff restaurant before it opens. A new restaurant coming to Dallas' Oak Cliff neighborhood is minus one chef. The Mayor's House, the much-anticipated eatery set to open in a historic Oak Cliff home, has parted ways with its chef, Graham Dodds.
