New Bar Alert: The Quinn

Last time around, Robert Ramirez and Kris McLauchlan were seemingly cursed. Twilight, the Oak Cliff bar/restaurant Ramirez owned and McLauchlan managed, ran into problems before it was even open, and eventually burned down just when it was settling comfortably into the neighborhood. After a few trying years, Ramirez (you may remember him tending bar at the Grapevine and Lee Harvey’s) and McLauchlan (late of Trees and Gypsy Tea Room) are back with a new joint, The Quinn, not terribly far from their first star-crossed locale. This time, things seem to be going their way.

Stuart Sikes (who had been in the night before) actually brought Chan Marshall in on Sunday evening, along with her lovely dog, Mona. She was incredibly friendly and complementary of The Quinn (I’m pretty sure she had me blushing). I guess she’s staying at [redacted] while she works on mixing the new record. I reckon that qualifies us as having had our first “celebrity” on only our 3rd day open, even though when I told Robert about it, his response was, “Cat who?”
