Sad to see TMC go
I have been a loyal patron of Throckmorton Mining Company for four years, since I turned 21. I was rather disappointed when I heard about the plans to close and move my favorite disco. I liked going there, because the guys there were preferred company to those at Station 4.
The music was also superior. They played a good mix of recent music with older classics that the more mature crowd appreciates. I’m a rarity in my generation who likes “old” music.
Hopefully the new TMC will be even better. I’ll just have to put up with the children at S4 until then. I did it before when they came to TMC while S4 was under construction.
The rumor I heard was that TMC will open by Labor Day at the current location of lesbian bar Sue Ellen’s, which is moving to the old TMC. I hope it’s not that long.
Thanks for book honor
Thank you so much for running J.S. Hall’s article, “Tops and bottoms of ’07,” (Dallas Voice, Dec. 28).
I was honored and pleasantly surprised that he chose my book, “I Had to Say Something,” as one of the three best of 2007.
Coming from Dallas Voice, that means a lot.
So many LGBT publications are all about cover boys and parties and could care less about what’s really happening in the community.
The Voice has consistently been a wealth of valuable information, a place to begin and continue dialogue, and, most important to me, a source of quality and accurate journalism.
It is a great honor to be chosen by your paper as one of the best of 2007.
