This Sunday, December 29 John Green visits Boxcar, a neglected establishment in Cedar Hill, Texas. Boxcar is troubled by three squabbling siblings with no bar experience and mounting debts that have dwindled their parents' retirement funds while running the bar into the ground.
Green turns to a team of North Texas experts to take the reins to settle family tension and make the bar successful again. Dallas interior designer Sarah Pickard of Pickard Design Studio was tapped to handle the interior design and joined forces with local contractor Dustin Gadberry of Gadberry Construction, to work construction miracles on Boxcar under an extremely tight budget.
Local celebrity chef Tim Byres worked with Green to turn around internal business issues and in the kitchen. Byres is co-owner and chef of Dallas' acclaimed restaurant, SMOKE, and was named one of the “Best Chefs in DFW” in 2010 by Dallas Morning News food critic Leslie Brenner.
