Everyone Was At Pecan Lodge's Soft Opening In Deep Ellum On Thursday Night — Except For You.

Sometimes, Twitter is the worst. Like, say, on a night when you've decided to have a quiet night in for once. You change into some sweats, you settle into the couch and then, out of habit, you check your Twitter feed.

That's when the FOMO sets in and you realize that seemingly everyone in the world is at a place where you'd sure like to be.

On Thursday night, that meant being at the new home of Pecan Lodge at 2702 Main Street in Deep Ellum.

No, the place isn't slated to open to the public until Friday, May 23. But, as most anyone in Dallas could've gleaned by glancing at Twitter on Thursday evening, the spot decided to hold a soft opening a little sooner than that in its new digs.

Don't worry if you weren't there. Despite naming Pecan Lodge as Dallas' Restaurant of the Year in 2013 and publicly slobbering all over its Hot Mess, we didn't get an invite, either.

And, no, we're not bitter or anything.

Anyway, all is not lost. At least in this instance, we get to grovel right alongside with you, dear reader, as we openly envy all the jerks out there who did get a formal invite.

So who were these fortunate not-so-few?

Well, this guy was there.

So was this person.

This guy, too.

This gent, a professor of meat sciences at Texas A&M University (seriously), was there. And he had a whole bunch of friends with him.

The Hypnotic Donuts crew got invited.

So, too, did a whole bunch of random food bloggers.

A KLIF news producer was there with her daughter, who also noticed that celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson was there.

This publicist was there.

Someone from Zagat was there.

WFAA's David Schechter was there.

The NFL Network's Ian Rapoport was there.

Ed Lavandera took a break from his field-reporting duties at CNN to be there.

Four Corners Brewing was there, announcing a new beer it's making in tandem with the Pecan Lodge team called Boss Lady Rustic Red, because serving beer and wine is something Pecan Lodge can do now in its new spot.

And the Dallas Morning News' Robert Wilonsky was there, too, doing it for the Vine and reminding you that, since you are not him, you won't be able to go to the new Pecan Lodge until May 23. Because you suck.
