Diving into West 7th

Steve Steward
Welp, after not even a year, Uptown Tavern is no mas, making it the third bar to occupy that Camp Bowie/West 7th space since — what, 2010? I don’t really have an opinion about the closing. Of course I feel bad for anyone pu...

Monster Mash’d

Steve Steward
I remember my first experience drinking moonshine sort of vividly, but not so vividly as to recall the brand. Mostly, I remember that the bottle was spherical and its contents acidic enough to make my eyes water. This friend of...

Girl-Sized Beer? Yes, Ma’am!

Steve Steward
Listen, Twin Peaks. Overall, you’re my favorite breastaurant. I won’t excuse the management of your Waco store for foolishly courting outlaw motorcycle clubs (what the hell did you think was going to happen?), but all of th...

Rally Caps

Steve Steward
“Thirty bucks to see Sepultura at The Rail?!” That was the disappointing thought pinging around my head on Monday night when I was scouring Facebook for something to do. The Brazilian metal quartet’s Fort Worth stop was p...

Summer Fun List

Fort Worth Weekly
The summer solstice is officially three weeks away, but it’s pretty hot outside, so basically the season has arrived. And with the tropical heat this year will come a lot of fun stuff to do outdoors. And a lot of opportunitie...

Traveling to The Moon Tower

Steve Steward
The other night, I went to this old bar on the West Side that’s been recently revived as The Moon Tower. Prior to the change of ownership and its new name, the bar was called the Silver Dollar Saloon. Yes, that Silver Dollar ...
