Eponymous 2: Steve Field’s

All credit to one Mr. Steve Field, ex-"managing partner" at Truluck’s and "co-launcher" of Dallas Alley (early ‘90s? West End? anybody?). But isn't it cute when a guy who’s not ahem a name-brand names a place after himself? However, Steve got bank: Full-page ads in Guide ain’t cheap, pal. STEVE FIELD's (snicker) takes a page from Truluck’s surf-n-turf model, but instedda crab claws, it's lobster. (As the plano guy likes to point out, red lobster is mobbed 24-7.) It's dinner-only, with theme nights (and this is the nutshell): tequila tuesday, wine down wednesday, and thirsty thursday. Catchy stuff, no?

I think Dallas Alley goes back to the '80s. Twisted link could probably look it up. Don't know Mr. Field, but isn't it a mercy he didn't call the place Mr. Field's Steak and Cockles?

Dallas Alley opened in the fall of 1986. Momentous because a first date at its opening was the beginning of a profoundly bad stretch of love life. And doesn't anyone recall Steve's was the name of the yummy ice cream place out of Boston that had an outpost in Snider Plaza in the 1980s?

I believe the tribe that ran Dallas Alley was the Loose Iannioes. This would have been after they escaped from the stockade at Fort Laramie and before they migrated to Las Vegas.

I want to say it was the commanches that had the casino, but it was probably some offshoot like the tigeros or the coristtas or the dontrumps. so twisted link, you gonna tell us?

OK, here it is: The Dineros, an offshoot of the Moolah tribe, struck out on their own to open the casino. The aforementioned Moolahs went bankrupt when their slot machines jammed up during large wampum payouts.
