Transcript ********************* put a lot into that old place including some of his heart. The Old Plantation • ON THE BEAT WITH BEATTY On the Bar Scene, we have several new places opening, and all are doing well. Joe's Other Place opened a few weeks i ago. I should say they had their grand opening a few weeks ago. They have J been open going on two months. There was a lo* of preparation and most of it was taken care of by the boy with a million dollar smile (David). Joe tells me he turned into a carpenter, plumber, elec- t trician and painter overnight. It took longer than that to complete all of these t chores, but with the patient coaching of Joe Elliot, it all eventually came about. r David is the bartender, but they also have ' a couple of barmaids that lend to the pleasant atmosphere while diligently going about their duties. The place is big, clean and conveniently located with a t large parking lot. Haskell and Lemmon ', [ is only a short skip from the Forest and t T.J.'s and close to the Ramrod and Crews Inn. Located on Fitzhugh across from the Barrel is the new One Way In, which also had its grand opening a few weeks ago. lt was very successful, and Carol and Glen are happy with their crowd. It's mostly women, a lot of them former customers of Mary's Barrel, which has been sold and converted into a neighborhood bar. The One Way In is located in a club which had been closed for some time. Pat and Glen were satisfied with most of the decor as it was, so it required very little going over. It's a big oval shaped bar with a good- sized dance floor and a pool table. The bar bourbon is great. Try it! As we go to the other end of the beat up toward the Oaklawn area, we find the old Mother's Blues has changed again. Scott is the manager of the Old Plantation has two bars which are quite different from one another. In the main bar, they ■ have two bartenders who are running all the time. There are booths around the outside wall and in the center is the dance J floor. The theme is rock. The back bar is my favorite with its Western atmosphere, pool tables and a honky-tonk piano, Blue Ribbon on tap and cute bartenders. Dallas is once again blessed with a delightful blond boy from Tennessee behindl the bar at the Marlboro. His name is Larry, and if you should come in without j a smile, he'll give you one of his. There's ' 15-cent beer (Coors) on tap and free pea- l nuts on Mondays. Terry's Ranch has a new attraction. The Slave Auction is held at 11 p.m. every Monday. They now have $200 bills with I Terry's Ranch stamped on them for use inj the auction. Come on out and see a real J • Western bar. Something special happens j every night. I hope they never take "Cot- j ton-Eyed Joe" off the juke box. The Crews Inn features a new face with a ■ body to match and a personality of ) charm. His name is Gary. It's a toss up > as to who gets more attention, Gary or Jason. Jason is another fairly new face J and is an eye catcher himself, as well as a good dancer. located on Rawlins just off Oaklawn. He ¥*********************************************************************& • THAT'S ENTERTAINMENT by Jay Alexander "My idea of a great night spot," someone once said, "is bed." But if you don't have one readily available here's a brief schedule of other area entertainment: Fort Worth Community Theatre (Scott Theatre), The Constant Wife, January 9- 18. Granny's Dinner Playhouse (Dallas), June Allyson in My Daughter, Your Son, Dec. 4 for a six-week run. Windmill Dinner Theater (Dallas), Mar- jorie Lord in Finishing Touches, through December 15. Henry Gibson in an adult comedy beginning December 17 for five weeks. Crystal Palace Dinner Theater (Dallas), Godspell starts December 10 and runs through February 15. Country Dinner Playhouse (Dallas), Sweet Charity, now through December 15; beginning December 17, Tab Hunter in Here Lies Jeremy Troy. Theatre 3 (Dallas), Whispers on the Wind, now through January 5. OPERA - WRR-FM (101.1) - live broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera House in New York every Saturday at 1 p.m. December 7 - Romeo Et Juliette (Gounod; December 14, Death in Venice (New) (Britten); December 21, Jenufa (New)(Janacek); December 28, Turan- dot (Puccini); January 4, L 'Italiana in Al- geri (Rossini); January 11, Madama Butterfly (Puccini). Perhaps the most eagerly awaited new movie is The Godfather, Part II, in which Al Pacino assumes underworld power after the death of Marlon Brando. This Paramount production leads a mere trickle of new films set for Christmas openings, compared to a deluge of up to 24 releases that was common several years ago. To qualify for the Oscars, there doubtless will be a number of last-minute year-end bookings; for example, Robert Mulligan's The Nickle Ride may go in December instead of January. Law and Disorder with Carroll O'Connor will be Columbia's only release until 1975. (After that, look for a landslide starting with the Funny Girl (Continued on Page 9) COMMUNITY NEWS / DECEMBER 74/11
