Who Messed With Texas?

Hearsay
Once again, allow me to get on my high horse and complain about the preponderance of Texas Music at bars in Fort Worth. I’m not a hater. I like a lot of Texas Music. Collin Herring is one of my favorite artists of all time, t...


Remembering Billy Miner’s

Last Call
The closing of Billy Miner’s Saloon last Thursday was the end of an era, one that stretched back 27 years, to the birth of one of the most popular neighborhoods in town (and nationwide model for urban redevelopment), Sundance...

LAURIE BARKER JAMES
If you’d asked anyone living around Mansfield a decade ago if the town had a traditional Japanese restaurant, you might have been laughed at. Oh, how times have changed. Sake Hibachi Sushi & Bar is one of a few sushi join...

Blarney Baloney at Delaney’s

Last Call
What do you get when you combine baloney Irishness, deep-stained oak, shitty service, and a bar that reeks a little? If you answered, “The old Bennigan’s downtown!,” you’d be right, but you’d also be living in the pas...


Finn MacCool’s Expands

Last Call
Have you been by Finn MacCool’s lately? Well, hurry it up, and when you go, be sure to say something nice about the bar’s new addition — Finn’s has expanded into the recently vacated storefront next door on 8th Avenue, ...
