Desertdog, are you talking about Fred P. Otts? They still have decent burgers and live music.
Houston’s at 95th and Metcalf is now and has been for some time JackStack’s BBQ. The Plaza Houston’s is still there. You worked at the one on Metcalf? When were you there and what did you do? That place was hopping at one time!
As far as Westport is concerned….I just don’t know how good the nightlife is these days. Too much crime for me. Out of control every weekend it seems. It’s not somewhere I’d direct an out of towner to. I live 8 blocks from there, I may be biased.
