🕐 1 min read

Frankie’s Sports Bar and Grill in downtown Fort Worth is closing with the owners pointing to the Affordable Care Act as a major culprit.

In a letter posted on the bar’s Facebook page, the owners, Bill and Johnnie Katz said: “Several factor led to this decision [to close], but the proverbial straw was brought on by the Affordable Care Act. If we were to stay in business, there was no way for us to have borne the weight of the oppressive penalties for failing to comply with the mandates …”

The bar, at 425 West Third Street, across from the Fort Worth Public Library, opened in March of 2011.
