Comings and Goings

The Fort Worth Zoo introduced two baby giraffes to the public on June 4. The new additions to the zoo, Waylon and Willie, named after country legends Waylon Jennings and Willie Nelson, were born on April 28 and May 23. The birth of the two new babies make nine giraffes total at the Fort Worth Zoo.

The Trailhead Cycling + Fitness Center at Clearfork, opening in the fall, will open Press Café as its trailside restaurant. The new café will include indoor, outdoor and rooftop seating for guests and features a fresh menu to coincide with The Trailhead’s focus on health and fitness. 

Revolver Taco Lounge, a Mexican restaurant located at 2822 W. 7th St., plans to close its doors and is heading to Dallas to open another location in Deep Ellum. Fortunately, Fort Worth locals can still enjoy Revolver owner Gino Rojas’ food at the taco lounge’s sister restaurant, Campreste Chula Vista. The restaurant, at 1950 Menefee Ave., opened in March and overlooks Jacksboro Highway.
Paco and Johns, another locally loved Mexican restaurant, located at 1116 8th Ave., has also permanently closed. Oh, how we will miss those grilled red snapper tacos.

Salata, “the next generation salad bar,” opened a new location at 2864 W. Berry St. on June 15. Salata offers customized salads and wraps with a variety of more than 50 healthy food items. The new restaurant near Texas Christian University is the Houston-based franchise’s second location in Fort Worth, following another downtown location in Sundance Square.

An addition was made to Camp Bowie’s restaurant scene on June 1 when The Egg & I opened its doors. The franchised breakfast spot, which sits in Yoko Sushi’s former space, has more than 100 restaurants across the country, including 36 in Texas. The Egg & I features a menu of omelets, waffles, eggs Benedict and more, offering a new Sunday morning go-to.
