Stoney's Wine, new location

If you ever went to Stoney’s Wine & Gifts on Harry Hines, over by the AAC, it mighta seemed disconcerting to find this quaint, 300-sq-ft stone-cottage wine store basically in the middla nowhere. Stone and Diane Savage were true urban pioneers. But the landlord changed and besides, Stone got robbed once, at gunpoint. So they loaded up their wines and moved to Greenville Ave. The spot they found – next to the Grape, of all places – had been a storage space (and a T-shirt shop, way-back-when). The new location is in an area rife with beer & wine emporiums, but at 900 sq ft, it's triple what they had before. It'll open "sometime in July."

2804 Greenville Ave. 214-953-3067

The link to the Hillbillies song is KILLING me. I love it.

Red, it's a lot easier to get what you need on Greenville Ave.

It's a good move though. Greenville Ave., unbelievably, is going more upscale. Already there's an eyeglass boutique in the same area as stoney's and the new hi-rise retail/residential over by Nick's will have more posh shopping. The area's "funky" days are on the wane, I think.

All the more reason to move on over to the Bishop Arts District.

twistedlink is shameless. there's no other word for it.
oh wait, i looked in my thesaurus, there IS another word for it: immodest, improper, unseemly, indecorous, scandalous, flagrant, indecent, i think you catch my drift

don't forget "marketer."

hm. marketer. nope, no sign of that whatsoever under "shameless." lewd, yes. obscene, audacious, insolent, presumptuous, daring, cheeky, unabashed, unscrupulous, qualmless, even wanton! yes to all that. but marketer, nope, sorry.

Twisted link: Is it easy to get anything, really anything, you need on Greenville Ave.?

If so, I think I am no longer interested in that Oak Cliff rental.

My great aunt, the famous movie star, was cruelly and without any basis in actual fact, or even non-actual fact, called wonton.

Does wine cause waxy yellow buildup?

If Greenville is so up-and-coming, why isn't Don Trump investing in it?

I have a little extra cash I could put into something lucrative.

Why doesn't Mr. Savage speak up for himself? Does he have a computer? Or is he of the Stoney Age?

I'm so confused by all this. Anyway, just wanted to confess that the Dreyer's boyesberry sorbet isn't all that new, according to my daughter. I can't imagine why she didn't tell me. She knows I loved Haagen-Dazs boysenbery ice cream as much as she did. Well, you never know how your kids are going to turn out, do you?

what kind of "gifts" did the original stoney's carry? did you actually ever visit there? I can't believe such shoddy, incomplete reporting by such a well-respected not to mention internationally known blogger!

get an editor!

Ms. Gubbins,
I admire you blog so much. Do you realize what you're doing -- providing an emotional outlet for Ms.Ery, a safety valve for Mrs.
Worth's and Mrs. Dither's terrible antipathy. Red Ennk is helped to, I think, though I don't know about Jess Truhart and Twisted Link is certainly beyond help. Amway, I'm so thankful that St. Peter grants access to a computer and I read you every day. You're my real successor.

i hope twistedlink will excuse me for calling him a wonton. everyone knows he's a crab puff (also known as a crab ranGOON).

 
At June 07, 2005 8:54 PM, Blogger TG said...

as for "jason," i'd invite him to be my editor but i hesitate, given the fact that he doesn't know how to spell his own first name. (tho some might say that spelling it "jayson" as he does is an affectation, an aberration, and an abomination.)

you got me on that jayson thing. But then I was always a bit careless

wow,wine will really do it to you. i just said "maybe must cook" instead of"just cook," which I guess means I have to reveal my true identity. Not Deep Throat, as you might have guessed once upon a time, but can you place a Bobby W?

Also Terese, Jayson Blair is a fake, as is Janet Cook. I knew her. Once upon a time,we worked for the same newspaper.

Tell D.B. to give me a call; his is a story I'd love to write.

The only thing you can't get on lower Greenville these days is charm, class and the American Way. Otherwise, it's an open market.

Call me a goon all you want. We Italians have been called much, much worse. Ya freakin' cream puff.

Terry,
How do you perservere when all these characters are attacking eveything you put into you column? My heart goes out to you, as it does to those poor slaughtered chickens.

twisted link: your last post frightens me a bit, though i should be relieved you are of italian descent instead of being from greenland. anyway, i think i will definiteky pass on the Oak Cliff apartment -- unless you're offering some incentive I don't know about.

I see my sister is still looking for any excuse to drop the name of our great aunt, the famous vamp, into a conversation You've probably heard that she was the star of such films as Passion, Gypsy Blood and Hotel Imperial and that she was once engaged to Charlie Chaplin and Rudolph Valentino (at the same time, I believe). But to the point of Stoney's enterprise, during her last years, when she was living in seclusion in San Antonio, Texas, she was said to enjoy a daily nip. Of only VINTAGE wines, of course, the type that Stoney will carry if he's smart.
