Twin Peaks Shenandoah to Host “Guys Night Out” for Local Hero

Restaurant to host party for Firefighter, Captian Dowling, for first outing since injury

DALLAS (July 23, 2014) – Twin Peaks, the mountain-lodge themed sports restaurant, is
hosting a “Guys Night Out” event on Saturday, August 2, for Houston’s beloved hero,
Captain “Iron Bill” Dowling from the Houston Fire Department. The evening will take
place at Twin Peaks Shenandoah in Houston, located at 18310 Interstate 45.

Since the tragic 5-alarm motel fire back in May 2013, which caused the death of four
fellow firefighters and the loss of Dowling’s legs, Bill has been in a slow recovery over
the past year. When asked what he would like to do on his first evening out, Bill
answered that he would like to spend the evening at Twin Peaks – a favorite spot shared
by Dowling and his lost colleagues.

“We’re honored to host such a significant event for one of our local heroes,” says
Danielle Carlton from Avalanche Food Group, who owns and operates the Shenandoah
Twin Peaks location. “We have all followed Captain Dowling’s story since last year’s
incident and continue to marvel at his heroism.”

Who: Captain William Dowling
What: Celebrating Captain Dowling’s first “Guys Night Out” since his injury
When: Saturday, August 2nd at 6:00pm
Where: Twin Peaks Shenandoah 18310 Interstate 45
