OAK LAWN – First it was Scotch & Sausage, then it was Le Taco. Now, it is Congress. The former "sexy" taco spot on Oak Lawn has officially transformed into Congress, no relation to Austin’s Bar Congress. If Facebook is to be believed, the updated space will be a nightclub, as CraveDFW originally speculated, judging by the guest DJ nights that the venue has planned for January. Likely, though, the bar will open its doors soon, as the newly renamed establishment already has a New Year’s Eve party in the works. You can score bottle service for eight during the festivities for the paltry sum of $864. [EaterWire]

LOWER GREENVILLE – If you find yourself with a hankering for an old fashioned Sunday dinner and there’s not a grandma in sight, get to Blind Butcher. On Sundays, you can order up a traditional English feast with roasted prime rib, bacon brussels sprouts, and sous chef Tina Miller’s excellent (and authentic) Yorkshire puddings. Dinner also includes a beer, glass of wine, or cup of tea, and is available starting at 4 p.m. until it’s gone. [EaterWire]


FORT WORTH – You’re probably under the assumption that Foster’s, the Australian beer served in bright blue cans, is actually brewed in Australia. In fact, it is actually brewed in Fort Worth, which prompted a New York man with serious attention to detail to sue MillerCoors for misleading customers into thinking that they were drinking legit Aussie beer. As Central Track noted yesterday, the beer has been brewed in Fort Worth since 2009. [Central Track]
