If you missed last week’s craveRADIO you missed plenty of great action. We started the first hour with Wade Hampton. yes, that Wade Hampton. He was our own personal rock star in studio. Wade is a mega DJ, and was part of the Starck Club scene back in the 80’s. He also was behind the W Hotel’s Ghostbar. Wade is now one of the owners of SISU in Uptown Dallas and runs the entertainment program at the hopping club. He is also behind the Starck Project which should be released soon. It is a look back at one of the most important clubs of its era, and rivaled that of any in the world.
Also on the program we enjoyed chatting with chef Jason Harper from Trio Café in Colleyville. Harper is knocking it out of the park in the suburb with simple but kicked up soup and sandwich style lunches, and in the evening with his special flare of New American cuisine. Harper is from a restaurant family and has an austere history working with great chefs, most recently with Kent Rathbun.

The Fort Worth Pour House has the 3-year itch once again and will be closing for a remodel. This time they will up their game to a total of 50 taps (sounds exciting) along with some beautification. The menu will be getting a reset as well, so look for new items to cozy up next to the fresh slate of brews.
“Every three years I like to freshen up The Pour House and bring new energy to the space,” says owner Eric Tschetter. “With the décor changes and the massive addition to our taps, I know Pour House regulars and newbies to the bar will feel at home.”
During remodeling, The Garage is open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. daily. The full Pour House menu will be available in The Garage.
