Grapevine Animal Shelter Pet of the Week – Tootsie

Tootsie was found as a stray in our City and has not been spayed/neutered or vaccinated. She is very affectionate and loving. She is very slender and has extremely short hair, so she will not shed lots of hair and she keeps her area very neat. She is grown but only about a year old. Tootsie is in need of a good home! The adoption fee is $40. This fee includes a $30 voucher to go towards being spayed/neutered and a $10 voucher to go towards a rabies vaccination.

 

In-N-Out Burger – Finally confirmed!

Well, this is a long time for rumors to swirl…..We first posted about the possibility of an In-N-Out Burger location in Grapevine over a year ago, in this post here:  http://www.grapevineblog.net/2011/07/in-n-out-burger-coming-to-grapevine/

Today, the Fort Worth Business Press confirmed the purchase of land by the company for its Grapevine location:  http://fwbusinesspress55.1upprelaunch.com/main.asp?FromHome=1&TypeID=1&ArticleID=19780&SectionID=24&SubSectionID=49

The announcement that the company had picked the site at the northeast corner of William D. Tate and Highway 114 was not a big surprise and that was where we expected that they would land.  Good to know the old KFC site is getting a new resident! 

We’ll continue to follow this closely.  More great restaurant news from Grapevine!

Friday night movies at PAC

It’s Friday night movie time at Palace Arts Center again!  They’ve been moving through the Star Wars movies one by one, and this week it’s time for episode I – “The Phantom Menace.”

(Or the fourth episode actually made, as my fellow children of the 80s think of it).

The movie starts at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $5.   They can be purchased up to the day before the show online at the link below:

On the day of the show you can get tickets at the box office.  If you bring in a receipt from a local Grapevine restaurant, as usual you get free popcorn.

May the Force be with you all, and see you there!  😀

Amazon (LivingSocial) deal at D’Vine Winery

I know Groupon is the big name in “deal of the day” discount opportunities, but I have found some real gems on LivingSocial as well.  Today’s deal features a double date opportunity of sorts – $20 for a gourmet cheese tray and four souvenir glasses.  Presumably the wine is extra, but you could order a bottle of something you know you like, or take advantage of their $5 tastings to find a new favorite.

I’ve tried their cheese plates before and they’re very good.  D’Vine isn’t a big food place, they mostly just have munchies that go with wine, but you can have a nice pre-dinner time there and then follow up with a great meal at any of the downtown restaurants.

This deal is good for about another day and a half, just in time to use for the weekend.

Happy Independance Day!

Happy 4th of July from The Grapevine Blog Spot!

There will be fireworks at Lake Grapevine tonight, they generally start around 9:30pm or whenever the sun goes down far enough to be dark.  There are several great spots around the lake to watch, but get there early because traffic will likely be heavy.

Thank you to all the veteran and active military residents who live in and around Grapevine.  Without the sacrifice and patriotism of persons like yourselves, we wouldn’t be able to celebrate this holiday and we wouldn’t enjoy the freedoms today that we do.

Everyone have a safe and happy holiday.
