This just in from the heavyweight champions of the Battle for The Chesterfield:
Statement from Ed Bailey:
“It is unfortunate how things have unfolded at The Chesterfield and I’m disappointed to say the least. I have continued to be very supportive of this bar and its success. Unfortunately an internal issue that we were working hard to handle privately became a public spectacle, which both parties deeply regret. Eddie and I have resolved our differences and look forward to putting this behind us,” said Ed Bailey. “The Chesterfield is back to business as usual with Eddie at its helm.”

“Sometimes emotions can get in the way of better judgment. Ed has been a great mentor to me and he is a great guy. We had professional differences and I’m sorry how things transpired. I’m passionate about The Chesterfield, as it is a life long dream of mine, and I’d like to apologize to everyone involved. Ed and I have worked things out and I am glad to be back behind the bar. I’m humbled by the support I’ve received from the community and look forward to making cocktails for the people of Dallas,” said Eddie Campbell.

I know Teresa Gubbins has written about this sangria already, but I can’t help sharing anyway.
Fort Worth native Britt West, Co-Founder of Eppa Wine Company, dropped by the office yesterday to give us a little tasting of his product. What he poured into our wine glasses was a surprisingly refreshing sangria blended from pomegranate, blood orange, blueberry and acai juices that goes well with ice.

Sorry to harp on you like your mother would, but Mother’s Day is only ten days away. Have you made reservations yet? Have you ordered her a new blender off Amazon? You still have time for standard shipping, but you’re cutting it pretty close.
In any case, I’ve tried to make this Mother’s Day reeeeally easy for you. Just take a look at this convenient list of Mother’s Day restaurants, pick up a phone, and dial. It’s that simple.
Teresa “Gubshoe” Gubbins reports the Austin-based Alamo Drafthouse will open its first branch in Dallas-Fort Worth in the Richardson Heights Shopping Center. The theater-restaurant has 740 seats, a full kitchen, and 40 beers on tap. It will takeover the former Pep Boys store. This is not your average first-run theater. It is a movie-lovers dream. They do festivals, both beer and movie, and special events like “Quote Alongs” for films like The Big Lebowski and Monty Python and the Holy Grail. You get kicked out if you don’t talk along with the film.
