PARKER STRIP — Changes are coming to the classic Parker Strip joint, Roadrunner Floating Dock Bar and Restaurant.

Last week it was announced that Jeff and Stephanie McCormack, the original owners of Roadrunner, are selling the dock bar. Rumors were abound on social media that the historic river rat hangout was going to close for good, but according to Realtor Laynee Sholl, the new buyer isn’t just keeping Roadrunner open, he is also investing millions into the property.

I used to go there as a little kid back in the early 1970s and unless I'm mistaken the original owners were Richard and Lea Lutes. One of my best friends at the time and still a friend of mine to this day is their son Tim. I spent many days visiting them and their dog Lolo and also his grandmother who was simply known as "Grandma" to everyone.
