What The Dickens Is Going On At OhLook?

What The Dickens Is Going On At OhLook?

Grapevine, Texas – November 24, 2014 – Get ready to be visited by some very whimsical ghosts you will enjoy meeting this Holiday season! Local performers at OhLook Theater in Grapevine are hard at work on two different variations of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” for your holiday entertainment pleasure. Both shows offer nostalgia with a twist that won’t leave you Ebenezer bitter!

Directed by Woody Blackburn, A Seussified Christmas Carol is being performed by kids ages 6-14 and is enjoyable for ALL ages. Wacky rhymed couplets that Dr. Seuss himself might have come up with, if he’d ever had his way with the story, steal the show. Join “Bed Headed Fred” and “Timmy Loo Hoo”, along with “Things 1 and 2” on their Christmas adventure, December 5 – 7.

Scrooge’s Groovy Christmas is an adaptation of the Dickens classic by Matt Lord. Watch Scrooge visit his past, present and future 70’s style, after eating a bowl of mushroom soup! Jacob Marley becomes Bob Marley in this hilarious rendition you don’t want to miss. Scrooge’s Groovy Christmas is an OhLook signature late night show, with performances at 11 pm. Feel free to bring your own “holiday cheer”.

Tickets for both shows are available online at www.ohlookperform.com. A Seussified Christmas Carol runs December 5-7; Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm and Saturday and Sunday at 2:30 pm. Scrooge’s Groovy Christmas runs December 12-20; with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 11 pm.

If you’ve never been to this little gem of a theater, you are in for a treat. Get your tickets early, as seating is very personal and limited. Concessions are available, and you are welcome to BYOHC (Bring Your Own Holiday Cheer) for the late night shows. OhLook Theater is located at 1631 W. Northwest Hwy in Grapevine.

Where is Lazy Bones?  Another Grapevine Mystery…

Where is Lazy Bones? Another Grapevine Mystery…

April 14, 2012 started like any normal spring Saturday in Grapevine, Texas. Beautiful spring weather accompanied the usual home town vibe of our fair city.

The night of April 14 and into the early morning hours of April 15 things changed in downtown Grapevine forever. A four-alarm fire at the historic sports bar, Lazy Bones, raged in downtown Grapevine. The entire building was a loss and what was left had to be demolished. (Video)

The original plan was to rebuild Lazy Bones on-site to the exact structure that it was before. That was before the city started to get involved asking (basically requiring) Lazy Bones to establish a historic landmark on the building. This landmark would give the city control over the exterior design of the building. We continue asking ourselves how a building built from the ground up in 2012 could even qualify as a “historic building.”

Fast forward to today, here we are, two and a half years later and we are left with nothing. Another fall football season where Grapevine’s best sports bar once stood now sits as an empty lot. It is a sad tale in a city with so many restaurants and so much development occurring that we cannot rebuild the best sports bar in town.

All we are left with is an empty lot and a mystery, what happened to Lazy Bones?

 

Side note:

If Lazy Bones is gone for good, will someone please step in and build another classic sports bar in town? We are on the eve of one of the best college football weekends of the year and there are zero decent sports bars in Grapevine.

We really need something like Boomerjack’s here. And before all of you people start in with Plucker’s, save your breath. Their table set up is abysmal. They actually want to seat you with other groups because the design is so bad.  And do not get us started on their beer prices.  Big Racks barbeque had a decent television set up in the bar and now it is closed. We need some help here.

There is definitely a market for a classic sports bar to step into the void left by Lazy Bones (which apparently will not be rebuilt in this lifetime).

The Fresh Market will be hosting a Career Open House on Tuesday, September 23, 2014 from 8:00am to 7:00pm at the Hilton Dallas/Southlake Town Square located at 1400 Plaza Place; Southlake, TX 76092.
