RoboPub

LAST CALL
Earlier this week, I saw a still from the set of the impending RoboCop reboot, and, frankly, I already don’t want to see this movie. The photo showed a charcoal-colored humanoid who looks like any one of the legion of robotic...


Getcha some seventy-five-cent wells at PR's.

Great PR’s

LAST CALL
For whatever reason, I’ve always been led to believe that PR’s is kind of rough, bordering on stabby, but after dropping by on Thursday, I kind of wonder why. I mean, I get it. PR’s is in a part of town, the Stockyards, t...

A Stockyards Party

LAST CALL
Dusk was on its way when I got to the Stockyards Music Festival on Sunday. I immediately hit the bar, a long, narrow, plastic oval under a huge tent situated between two rows of food trucks. Of course it was crowded, and of cou...

Go for the Gold

LAST CALL
Well, have you been to The Gold Standard yet? If you’re the type who’s up on Clubland’s latest happenings, you’ve probably been keeping, uh, tabs on the spiritual successor to the dearly departed 7th Haven. Maybe you ev...

Schlitz and Giggles

LAST CALL
I wouldn’t say that the late, great Moon’s Sunday comedy night was the birthplace of Fort Worth’s recent comedy growth spurt, but it was definitely one of the more legit and better known venues for amateur and journeyman ...

Golden Summer Chili

LAST CALL
For various reasons, I missed the part of the Olympics opening ceremonies when James Bond pushed Queen Elizabeth out of a plane onto Paul McCartney or whatever, but I got to work at The Boiled Owl in time for the parade of nati...

3rd Base Pumping?

LAST CALL
I’ve gotta be honest. The only reason I set out for Arlington’s 3rd Base Sports Bar & Grill was for the purpose of making some jokes. After all, is any cleavage-and-wings-type eatery better or different from the others?...

Saucer Takes Flight

LAST CALL
Attention, beer geeks. Your temple of brew is back. The Flying Saucer has returned, and if you weren’t able to be there last Thursday when the place opened the doors of its new space, on the corner of 3rd and Commerce streets...
