I'm not surprised that half of the "Crockett Street Entertainment Complex" shut down overnight. It's the location. Everyone knows that the building across the street has a Voodoo curse on it. Just sayin.'
Crockett Street owners aren't saying why Antone's, Texas Star Bar, the Dixie Dancehall, the Black Cat Lounge, and the Ten Lounge shut their doors, but they are claiming that the joints will reopen in 60 days. What's that about? Staying open for now are the bars Hog Wild and Bobby McGee's, the restaurant Rio Rita's and the Neches Room, which I've never been in but people rent it for various invitation-only shindigs. Oh, and the Spindletop restaurant might also stay open. Or not.
