Frillz, featuring hand-painted clothing; Satin & Lace & Funny Face, with hand-painted porcelain-and-fabric dolls; Cajun Connection, books and spices; Dallas Western Wear, with jeans, boots and hats; and D.B. McCalls, a mock country store with clothing and gifts. At the corner of Munger and Market Street, just across the street from the Marketplace, is the Spaghetti Warehouse, featuring a great Italian food menu. One block south is more Italian food. On Ross Avenue, further south, are Dick's Last Resort, featuring live jazz; and the Outback Pub, Australian-style items with occasional live music. At 702 Ross is the West End Cabaret, a theater with drinks and a changing "menu” of performances, including the Dallas Lyric Opera. On Pacific Avenue are the Pacific Pearl, featuring Chinese food; Grumbles, with burgers and munchies; and the Voodoo Room, an exotic bar featuring steel band reggae music on weekends. Further south and west are the West End Pub, an old-fashioned bar, and Morton's of Chicago, a basement steak house. That is just a sampling of the things you can find at the West End. But that's not all. The West End Marketplace is a trip all by itself. The marketplace is a renovated warehouse complex that has been turned into a four-level market, featuring more than 100 small shops and vendors. What can you find at the Marketplace? You name it. Clothing, fun gifts, T-shirts, souvenirs and snack food. So, how are the West End and Bricktown similar? They both have a Spaghetti Warehouse. And that's about it. What is keeping Oklahoma City's Bricktown from being as lively and vibrant as Dallas' West End? A lot of elbow grease and a little bit of financial commitment. That's all. If I had a bit of extra money, which I don't, I would sink some of it into Bricktown to start: 1) a Hard Rock Cafe franchise. 2) a dinner theater, which could house both live theater and film. And, in about two years, I would be rich.
