For those of you coming to TAOM next week, there's a hidden gem about 15 minutes from the convention, with a heck of a lot of history attached.

"Vegas before Vegas"

Beulah Adams Marshall bought land here along the Bankhead Highway in the early 1920s and opened a tea room, hosting teas and serving dinners to Dallas and Fort Worth patrons. In the late 1920s, Fred and Mary Browning purchased the property and shortly began converting the facilities into a casino, adding an escape tunnel and secret room for hiding the gambling paraphernalia during raids.

They are very accommodating in arranging tours, and there's of course an ironic twist.

But that would be spoiling things....

A group went from the last Fort Worth convention to visit and I think it was a success. Check it out while you are in the neighborhood!
