Last Call

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...

Steve Steward

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 ...


Go Home, Frat Bros

Steve Steward
I don’t particularly enjoy writing columns in which I rant about how people behave at a bar. It’s probably unprofessional in at least two different arenas, and it makes me replay every recent experience I’ve had as a bart...
