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 ...


Rooster, Delaney’s Work

Though heavy on kitsch, both bar/restaurants deliver.
LAURIE BARKER JAMES
Is there a spate of new bars that happen to have good eats? Or is this phenomenon really a spate of new restaurants conveniently doubling as bars? Fort Worth is home to a few taverns boasting better-than-usual bar fare: 8.0 in ...



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, ...

Last Call

Die With Your Boots On

Last Call
Monday morning, I woke up on the couch in a torso-shaped puddle of sweat. It was one of those moments when I briefly wondered where I was, but then I saw the empty tallboys and Whatawrappers decorating the coffee table and real...


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...



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...


Blunch

Last Call
A buddy of mine recently asked for suggestions for Sunday brunch. I started to rattle off my usual list, starting with Reata. (I’ve never actually been for brunch but have heard good things and have been there often enough fo...
