It's natural to carry previous experience into a new venture, whether it's Bob McNamara bringing Ford's systems to public policy, or Tom DeLay proving that Beltway power can be won by always having a bug up your butt. Bringing his scandalous past into his sporty present, the owner of Spinners Bar & Grill.
From the gentleman behind topless destination Palazio, Spinners is an exposed-brick-&-reclaimed-wood sports-watcher's watering hole decked out with trophy bucks and marlins, and serviced by a seductive staff dressed in tied-off western shirts and daisy dukes certain to give excitable patrons a Blue Devil. The wealth of tappage (33 beers) runs from local standouts like 512's Pecan Porter and IPA, Real Ale's Fireman's #4, and Live Oak's Big Bark, to out-of-towners like four Fat Tires, to a bevy of standby internationals (if only they would stand by us -- we're nation-building, come on guys, it'll be awesome!). Fulfilling the grill promise, they're slinging fare like The Pesto Besto Chicken Sandwich in Town, hand-stretched thin-crust pizzas, hearty foreigners like gyros and Uruguayan sliced-steak sandwiches, and the Double Bypass Burger topped with bacon, cheese BBQ sauce, mayo, and onion strings, plucked right off a Vi(dali)olin.
For those slightly cooler nights, one wall of the resto slides up revealing a fan-cooled patio -- if you get bitten up by bugs, you know the Exterminator's got mad appointments available.
