Whence the Scene?

Last Call
If you missed it on Sunday, the 13th Annual Fort Worth Weekly Music Awards Festival was pretty awesome. As I left the Stoogeaphilia show at 7th Haven to catch the end of The Burning Hotels’ set at Lola’s, I saw a throng mak...


Don’t Change, Showdown

Last Call
If there’s one thing I love about dives, it’s the décor. From the Starlite Lounge’s year-round Christmas tinsel to the yellowing caricatures that decorate the molding at A Great Notion, a dive bar’s unabashed earnestne...



Aloha, J.R. Bentley’s

Last Call
I hate to admit it, but you notice a lot more things when you’re sober. Now obviously, a lot of this has to do with the fact that alcohol is an intoxicant, and when you’re giving your gray matter a booze bath, your judgment...


Keepin’ it Real at Dos Amigos

Last Call

Last Call
It’s springtime, and that means frozen-drink weather. Thoughts of icy, sugar- or salt-rimmed beverages make me, um, well, I can’t really say here, but give me a few minutes, buy me a swirl, and I’ll tell you.


Working Through It

Last Call
I don’t know what you were doing the other morning, but I was drinking beer and watching The Price is Right.



BJ’s Brew Goes Down Like Water

Last Call
One of the things I love about going to North East Mall is driving around for hours trying to find the freaking exit to the place. The strip malls all around are just so scenic! Ugh. Someone needs to tell whichever conglomerati...


The Keys to Happiness

Last Call
Next week, May rolls around, and — barring any surprise climactic horror — the heat will come with it. I mention this because, as I’ve gone about town over the past couple weeks, I’ve noticed a ton of bar patios rolling...
