Never heard of him having any local club connection.

I have also seen website stuff that descibes a late nite gathering in the posh bits of the Fort Worth Club building that same night.
If Ruby was in, rather than "wanna be in," the dixie mafia in FW, seems like there would be witnesses of him working clubs/gambling houses on the Jacksbororo Hiway and or Lancaster Boulevard.

"The Skyline Lounge"

In 1963 I was working for a beer distributorship which served accounts in both Fort Worth and Dallas. We delivered product to most accounts in both Tarrant and Dallas counties, including Jack Ruby's clubs. Being a young and single young man, I used to frequent clubs in Dallas, including the Carrousel as well as some clubs on East Lancaster. There was a club on Lancaster (unfortunatly cannot remember the name) that had many of the same strippers that Ruby had in Dallas. (I remember Chris Colt and her '45's) I always wondered if Ruby had any interest in this place, but never found out.
