The Whiskey Garden: Shallow End?

Steve Steward
I don’t know what you know about The Whiskey Garden, but if it’s based on its Yelp page, I can only say you should probably see what it’s like for yourself –– assuming you can get in. As a white guy, I had no problem ...


Mea Culpa, 1919 Hemphill

Steve Steward
With complete sincerity, I would like to apologize to the people of 1919 Hemphill for getting some facts wrong in my column last week about going to a show at the bar across the street. (Stick with me.) I said that 1919’s mot...

Clear Acid’s approximately 30-minute set flooded the space with torrents of distortion and reverb.

Welcome, 1912 Club

Steve Steward
As far as I know, the people who run the seminal all-ages venue 1919 Hemphill are cool and non-judgy about whatever funtoxicants a person enjoys everywhere else. It’s just that 1919 is committed to being a safe place for mino...


Sandi’s Red Barn: Secret Bar

Steve Steward
Because my friend Leah works at the Ozzie Rabbit on East Lancaster, I texted her to ask if she’d ever been to this bar down the street from her called Sandi’s Red Barn. “Hahaha,” she wrote back. “We call it ‘Secret ...


Home Plate for Howie

Steve Steward
I wish more bars would put the Game Show Network on in the afternoons. Over the past couple years, I’ve really taking a liking to Steve Harvey as host of Family Feud, specifically because his interactions with contestants rev...


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...


Backed into The Corner

Steve Steward
In the time that I’ve been helming this column (nearly six years, as of this writing), I’ve written about some places (Lola’s Saloon, Caves Lounge, A Great Notion, Applebee’s) more than others because they have a promin...


Glory Corridor

Steve Steward
As you are probably aware, Sunday was the Fort Worth Weekly’s Music Awards Festival, an annual event noted for causing attendees to have super-long, incredibly hungover Mondays, even if they don’t manage to get out of bed b...
