Frankie’s Cathode Rays

Fort Worth Weekly
Here’s the thing: I am bound by the tradition of two generations to be a San Francisco Giants fan, but given the distance and their first-week win-loss record, well, let’s just say it’s easier to pay attention to the Rang...


Brewfest 2012

The Golden Hour

Fort Worth Weekly
I wouldn’t say I was slapped with a moment of sentimentality, but as the Golden Hour fell upon Brewfest on Crockett in the West 7th Development last Saturday, I looked at the people milling around and was sort of smitten with...

The Corporate phase

Last Call
If you’ve been drinking for a while (for years, I mean; not, like, since lunch), at some point you have conversations with fellow nightflies about your respective boozing phases. I realized this the other day when Jägermeist...

Heart of a Night Owl Callin’

Fort Worth Weekly
I wasn’t born in a bar, but I might as well have been. I do all of my best work there. (Ask anyone who knows me. You’ll learn that being hilarious, handsome, and 10 feet tall is definitely an artform.) In my eons of bar tra...

He Shoots, He … Scores?

Last Call

Big Balls in Cowtown

Last Call
Ever open up a local magazine or newspaper, glance at the society photos, and wonder, Who the hell are these people? Because I sure do. This may shock you, but black-tie events aren’t really on my radar. I mean they used to b...



A Man and a Dog Walk into a Bar

Last Call
About halfway through football season, when I caught on that the 49ers were moving out of a decade of bad coaching and worse ownership to become a possible post-season contender, I happily climbed on the bandwagon, one from whi...


Say Yes to NOS Bar

Last Call
Say what you want about the south side of West 7th Street. At least Fred’s is there. While you hear about the shiny shops and chef-driven restaurant concepts struggling to stay open, Fred’s is still consistently awesome and...
