Prior versions of this article said AT&T Inc. call-center workers sometimes made it difficult for customers to cancel DirecTV service. AT&T disputes that. Those passages were removed because they were based on interviews with former AT&T call-center managers who worked in centers whose primary purpose was to serve customers of other AT&T products, not DirecTV. DirecTV has its own dedicated call centers. Earlier versions also reported on an AT&T customer’s experience with a call center. Those passages have been removed because the customer used AT&T’s U-verse service, not DirecTV. When AT&T Inc. took over DirecTV in 2015, a group of executives from the two companies gathered at Fleming’s steakhouse in El Segundo, Calif., to celebrate the deal. … [Read more...] about AT&T Wants to Be Big in Entertainment.

The year was 1906, and there was no rodeo in sight. In the inaugural year of the National Western Stock Show, any display of roping and riding skill was still 25 years away. There was no food court hocking giant turkey legs, either. Back then all the action happened in the stockyards, where ranchers and buyers sized up beef cattle, bid on train car loads of the prized animals and struck deals. The first permanent structure built for the show, the now-historic Stadium Arena, didn’t open until 1909. Nowadays, the stock show is a multifaceted entertainment experience. It offers rodeos, music and dancer performances, a trade show with room for 900 vendors and, of course, food courts hocking giant turkey legs. Showgoers can spend days at the National Western Center and never go near a pen full of Hereford cattle.

Construction of two more businesses on the last remaining developable spaces in Rosemont's entertainment district is scheduled for the upcoming year, officials said. Mayor Brad Stephens said plans are moving along to get shovels in the ground for Pete's Dueling Piano Bar, announced last April, and a Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealership and retail store, announced in August 2017. An updated lease agreement approved this month by the village board calls for construction of the proposed one-story, 6,000-square-foot piano bar to begin by June 1, 2019, and be complete within a year, though Stephens expects it to take only half that time.He added that the new language in the 15-year lease deal was requested by the lender for the project team, which is a partnership between Texas-based Pete's, Braden Real Estate and the proprietors of Sugar Factory.The piano bar, to be situated between the AMC Rosemont 18 movie theater and iFLY indoor sky diving facility, would feature nightly … [Read more...] about Harley dealer, piano bar to break ground in Rosemont entertainment district next year
