The Elwood BFD, a one-of-a-kind bar coming to McKinney, could be open as soon as April 2020. BFD stands for "beer, food and drink.” The Elwood will offer over 40 beers on tap, an extensive wine and liquor list, dinner, and Saturday and Sunday brunch. Eventually the bar will offer lunch. The Elwood is a collaborative effort of three local bar owners from Fillmore Pub in Plano, Cold Beer Co. in Deep Ellum and one of the partners from Nickel & Rye. According to co-owner Rick Shew, the bar will be open until 2 a.m., offer community event and live music, and serve as a local hangout to the area. The Elwood will be located at Hub 121 on the northwest corner of Alma Road and SH 121 in McKinney. A physical address is not yet available. www.facebook.com/TheElwoodBFD
