I went there a couple of times in the 70's.  Wasn't it a cop hangout for a while?  I went there with a cop so I just assumed.

The 7th Street Theatre is where the showed "The Rocky Horror Picture Show".  For those of us that remember that movie the people would dress up like the actors in the film and act crazy.  Fun times.

Priscilla Davis and Stan Farr were at the Merrimac the night before.  They sat on the patio, which was inside, with about 25 people.




#74214 Cullen Davis Mansion

 I worked at the Merrimac Restaurant, on the Trinity River, at the time of the murder's.  Pricilla and Stan Farr were in the restaurant the night before them murder's.  He was so  so tall and she was a petite blonde.  I could not believe it the next day when  I came in the next day and learned of the murder's.  A friend of mine, that also worked at the Merrimac, had been

friends with Pricilla's daughter Dee and told me a story about when she was over at the mansion, after school one day ,and Cullen came in and threw a ball from the pool table at the wall, just missing the kids.  I met him once after the first trial.  I was introduced to him by his atty. Bill Magnason.  My face was about 18 inches from his, it was a strange experience.  He was acting very meek , at the time.  In 1976 and after the murders Pricilla came into the Merrimac quite a bit.  It was the place to see and be seen, if you were anybody in FW, in the mid to late 70's,
