He drank water straight from the spring, caught his own fish and chopped his own firewood. No, it wasn’t Steve Nash.
Then one day, he moved to Dallas and opened the Granada Theater. And it was good.
And his next trick: Sundown at Granada, a rustic beer and burger joint located next door to that very same Granada Theater, opening the bar tonight and the kitchen on January 13.
Picture a swanky 1970s lake house, and you get the idea. Red and green vintage couches. Walls made from wood donated by some neighbors. And pictures of a White Rock Lake sunset.
For a quick meal before, say, the upcoming Ting Tings show, you’ll take the first stool at the dark maple bar and order up one of 60 bottled beers and either the Manitoba Monster Burger (think brisket and bacon) or a Shrimp Boat Taco.
But your best bet is coming here for an after-concert beverage. That’s when you’ll get comfortable in an old suede chair in the lounge area. As you relax your lighter-holding hand, you’ll sip on a Blood and Sand with 12-year-old scotch.
Also: come spring, there’ll be a rooftop bar where you can drink a Shiner next to the Granada sign.
Which was totally on your 2012 to-do list.
