Listening to the Dallas police chief's press conference yesterday, she said that these criminals are being bussed in (from other parts of TX) which seems consistent with what's happening in other cities. So between that and the mysterious palettes of bricks which were delivered to protest sites in various cities, who's organizing and/or paying for this and to what end?

emmasensei wrote:Yeah, contractors just leave supplies strewn on sidewalks for months on end in this town. There were bricks (and piles of wires, and trash, and plastic wrapping on the ADA-compliant curbs, and even entire street signs which could be an interesting projectile in a storm...) alongside Henderson Ave for weeks in January/Feburary before they finally stuck them in the sidewalks. I haven't seen any convincing evidence of a greater brick conspiracy beyond Dallas contractors who don't have enough accountability to clean up after themselves. David Blewett, D14 rep, is talking about this in detail on his Facebook page.

A beautiful interior with multiple spaces and good food, drinks, and music. My understanding is that they are booked via reservations until sometime in September (though I did hear single reservations are still available here and there).
Also, the "K" in Kocktails may be an ode to the Fraternity that the owner is a member of...not for sure but that's my guess. I also think the General Manager told me that they would be open for lunch this week, so ill probably pop in from my office too.
