The new Race Street music club named The Post at River East also serves dinner and weekend lunch.

Look for it weekdays at 4 p.m., weekends at noon at 2925 Race St., near Riverside Drive.
Second chance the key for restaurant health inspections
Hey, Bud! There are five or six restaurants that have had worse health scores than Yucatan Taco Stand did. How’d the others stay out of the news?
Most fixed their problems and cleared reinspection. Buffets are the most trouble-prone. Generally, health scores should be read as pass-fail: The number isn’t a big deal unless the restaurant fails. Find Fort Worth inspections at apps.fortworthtexas.gov/health.
Popeyes chicken sandwich is good, if you can find it
Hey, Bud! Chick-fil-A or Popeyes?
—Twitter reader, obviously
Snagged at a Popeye’s chicken sandwich in Lake Worth on a Sunday. Bigger. Crisper. Juicier. Like you’d pay $11 for in a chef-driven restaurant. Good bun. A win for Popeyes, and I still go to Chick-fil-A too.
