The budget grocery store there will occupy 10,000 square feet and have five aisles, Tarczan wrote.
The chain opens locations based on population density, proximity to other shopping, and available parking, Tarczan added.
“We have received a warm welcome from the Metroplex community and look forward to becoming long-term members of the community,” Tarczan wrote.
You remember Dave Conard’s story about the 13 Oak Cliff movers and shakers that decided to go into the restaurant business together, right? Well, according to gooakcliff.org’s indefatigable Rob Shearer, pastry chef Aliza Shier won’t be one of the 13 “oddfellows” after all.
Sources close to the restaurant site differences over “creative direction” in the development of the final menu as Shier’s reason for pulling out of the restaurant prior to opening. Spillers, who is a trained chef from the Culinary Institute of America, is now taking on the responsibility to create the menu. No word yet as to whether another chef will be hired to fill the void in the kitchen on a day-to-day basis.
The Texas Theatre is returning to the return tomorrow (Sept. 30) at 7:30 p.m. West Kessler resident Kirby Warnock’s documentary about Marfa and the actors of the 1956 film seems a favorite of the theater at 231 W. Jefferson Blvd.
Tickets for the showing of the hard-to-find film are $7 at the door, by the way.

State Rep. Rafael Anchia, D-Kessler Park, has been talking to North Oak Cliff residents this year about whether there is enough interest/support to create a charter high school. Well, charter schools are a big topic in the new education documentary Waiting For Superman, so Anchia will discuss them some more following a sold-out screening of the film at the Magnolia tonight. Also scheduled to take part in the conversation is Wynnewood North’s Michael Sorrell, president of Paul Quinn College.
The ever-resourceful Amy Wallace Cowan is one of the brains behind Oak Cliff Counts, an organization that has … well, organized three information sessions regarding the upcoming wet-dry vote. Oak Cliff Chamber of Commerce president Bob Stimson, Fort Worth Avenue Development Group president Scott Griggs, and other local leaders will be on hand to answers questions about how Proposition 2 (the one that would eliminate the “private club” requirement for restaurants to sell alcohol) could affect Oak Cliff. Here’s the schedule:
— 6:30 p.m. Oct. 12 at Eno’s Pizza Tavern
— 11 a.m. Oct. 16 at Jack’s Backyard
— 6 p.m. Oct. 17 at La Calle Doce (with Spanish translation)
The A-Team behind Photopol.us, Ange Fitzgerald (left) and Andrea Roberts, will be showing off their skills tomorrow night at Eno’s Pizza Tavern. That’s a reason to celebrate, right? Not so fast. The dynamic duo’s first joint exhibit — “Urban Landscapes,” which starts at 7 p.m. — will also serve as a going-away party for Fitzgerald, who is moving to Pittsburgh.
Hey, Ange. I went to school near the ’Burgh. Let me give you a piece of advice. Before long, take in a meal at Primanti Bros. — and don’t try to argue when they put the fries in your sandwich.
The Friends of the Hampton-Illinois and North Oak Cliff Libraries are having their Oak Cliff Bookfest to benefit the two branches from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday (Oct. 2) at the Hampton-Illinois branch at 2951 S. Hampton Road.

All proceeds benefit the two branches, sayeth the flier. To volunteer or for more information, call (214) 670-7646 or e-mail email@example.com
