Fort Worth’s Coyote won’t open till 2013

According to a story in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Tarrant Regional Water District owns the land and in February granted a 10-year lease for the drive-in. Wood had hoped to open this summer, but decided to hold off till spring when the Coyote will have completed “a pavilion, beer garden(!) and a large playground”.

KXAS, Dallas-Fort Worth’s news leader, added a two-minute video report on the Coyote’s status. It quotes J.D. Granger, the executive director of the Trinity River Vision Project, which KXAS says own the land. (Hmm, they can’t both own that land, can they?) Anyway, Granger said of the Coyote’s owners, “They decided, based on the site, this will be the best drive-in in the entire country. Because of that, they’re truly making this their flagship operation.” Definitely something to look forward to!
