Transcript ON THE SCENE By Richard van Cleve WATCH for changes in the Old Plantation. Soon, early in the spring, the Old Plantation will be opening to the out-of- doors with the addition of a Beer Garden. Work has been underway for the past few weeks towards its completion. Part of the landscaping is finished with bamboo planted along a new eight-foot wooden fence. Potted plants, lanterns and furniture will shortly be installed. The bar in the Western room is to be extended onto the patio for the convenience of the Garden's patrons, and the same nostalgic music provided in the Western room will be heard in the Garden. The Western bar is also undergoing changes. The dance floor is being enlarged, and windows and a door facing the Beer Garden will be added. More shooting gallerys and pinball machines for the arcade are on requisition. SOME of the women at T.J.'s of Dallas are forming a motorcycle club to be known as the Hobos. The summer agenda will include camping outings and cycling excursions for state-wide trips - the first planned for March 23. If you are interested in joining, drop by T.J.'s or give them a call at (214) 526-9368. FOR THE PAST month, the Sundance Kids has been showing movies each Sunday night at 9 p.m. preceded by a beer bust. So far, the movies have been good - a mix of classic camp and light coined **********************\. ff<BNB By Allen Reid IS COORS CHICKEN? Game time was 2 p.m. March 8 at the Forest Park soccer field, and the mighty 651 Texans were panting for action . .. but, alas, their challengers - Coors Distributors - didn't show. Well, there were fans to appease and please, so the "home" team, dressed in their cut-offs and pullover shirts, split into two teams of six each and played for three-and-one-half hours of the fastest, feistiest, funniest football ever seen in Ft. Yet, the future programming promises to be better - if you like horror and science fiction, and who doesn't after a couple of beers? The date, place and event schedule of the Wranglers' annual Stampede are set. The date is June 20-22; the place is the Roanoke Dude Ranch outside of Grapevine; and the event schedule will be announced in the next issue of CN. FOR THOSE thirsty nomads ever in search of a new palm-ringed watering hole, there is one in town - for women - the Olive Branch Saloon at 2827 McKinney. The Olive Branch is not exactly new, for it has been in business since late December; but what is new, and crucially so, is the soon-to-be-obtained liquor license. Shane, the manager who is fresh out of hotel management, reports that he and the owners are drawing up an ambitious calendar for future months. As standard features the Olive Branch will celebrate each holiday with a ball and special drink prices, groups can reserve tables for anniversaries or birthdays, and there will be a weekly movie night showing gay female films. Many of the Olive Branch's regulars are signing up for a packaged, Saloon-sponsored bus trip to San Antonio's April Fiesta. And those regulars who won't be on the trip are staying in Dallas to practice for the season's first baseball game in Dallas Softball League. Both the bus trip and ball team are still open to more participants. For more information, contact the Saloon in person or call 824-2770 or 823- 0921. SWAMP TRASH, that classless but in style bistro, is having a parade of events. To lead off the parade will be a dandy, March 30, Easter Hat party. Stepping quickly up behind in April will be a Jockey Short party, a pageantry of sizes, shapes, and brand names - B.V.D.'s and Fruit of the Loom. This progression of galas will naturally climax in that show of shows, the Academy Awards presentation to be viewed (with buffet) via the color tube at the Swamp Trash. Free gin punch will be served every Saturday at 5 p.m. as a continuing attraction. POLICE harassment of Dallas gay bars? Perhaps. It is not clear yet whether recent encounters between the police and the bars is intended by the police as selective badgering of gay bars or a change in police policy regarding all bars. But what is known is that the police are now enforcing an unused and forgotten city ordinance prohibiting after hours dancing and that police renewed enforcement of the ordinance has been both tacdess and absurd. All the gay bars in the city have taken a wait-and-see attitude, suspending their after hours dancing. GARY SHANNON of the Encore is now casting for his new production of "Pur- lie." Any interested person may contact him at the Encore. THE BAR had a sex change. What was once women's is now men's. The Place is the name, and 3019 N. Haskell is the place. While Joe's Other Place was astrological and mystical, The Place is Polynesian and carefree. .»aa.»«.«.a».»»**»»»«a»»»«.M» Worth. Final score: 30-26. Great game, fellas! This definitely should be done again. Meanwhile, those Coors people have some explaining to do .... ■ ■ ■ A FRIEND IN NEED . .. Who says there's no community spirit in Fort Worth. Gays in Fort Worth proved beyond any doubt this month that they care for their own. When the home of James Norris burned; individuals immediately rallied to his sup port. Some ofthe 651 crowd got together with MCC and presented a special benefit show with proceeds going to assist James. The audience also helped by bringing clothes and household items to the show for James and his mother. Customers at the Other Place made sandwiches and bought a keg of beer which they sold Sunday afternoon, and at T.J.'s Back Door, a $1 charge for reserved tables went to the project. In addition, all performers donated all of their tips for the evening. Praise to all the people who worked together in this endeavor. Let's keep on working together.
