The Grotto’s Got it Going On

Last Call
If you haven’t been to see a show at The Grotto yet, you should do your best to change that situation. Seriously, The Grotto is becoming one of my favorite venues in town. Under owner Cody Admire’s direction, the little-lou...


All’s Jake at Jake’s

Last Call
I was a little amused a month or so ago when In-N-Out Burger announced that they would be opening a location in Fort Worth. I started reading and hearing little bits about an impending burger war, and this kind of cracked me up...



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...

A Capital Idea

Last Call
Ever been to the Capital Bar? I mean, you probably have — it’s been open for almost a year, and from what I’ve seen, it gets pretty busy. I’d been there one time last fall on a Friday, when the place was elbow-to-elbow ...
