Hey, Bud! I never hear about Lawry’s anymore. Is it still open?

I saved this for a while, but now Lawry’s The Prime Rib is celebrating 85 years with an $85 dinner special.
The deal includes a lobster-shrimp Louie cocktail, Lawry’s spinning salad, prime rib and sides plus a pineapple upside-down mini-bundt cake. There’s also a complimentary glass of wine.
For about $105, upgrade to a 1-pound prime rib-eye and fries. It’s open for lunch and dinner daily; 14655 Dallas Parkway, 972-503-5588, lawrysonline.com.
Retail shops to open in old Original location
Hey, Bud! What’s happening at the old Original Mexican Restaurant location?
—Arlington Heights resident
The former space at 4713 Camp Bowie Blvd. will be divided into four retail shops, according to PaperCity Fort Worth.
The Original is now open for lunch and dinner daily except Mondays at 1400 N. Main St., 817-761-1890, originalmexcafe.com.
A former pet boutique on the west corner near the old Original on Camp Bowie is also planned to become a retail gift shop. Blue Bonnet Bakery will be that block’s only remaining restaurant.
Tequila + whiskey + Dr Pepper: It’s at Fuzzy’s
Hey, Bud! I think you need to try this menu item (the “Fireball ‘Rita” at Fuzzy’s, a frozen margarita with Dr Pepper and Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey).

Respect to your bravery, but I’m out on mixing tequila with Dr Pepper and whiskey. Sounds like less of a drink and more of a TikTok stunt.
