Whiskey Business Takes Over the Mule Pub Space

Matthew Brown
The space at 5731 Locke Avenue has been a community drinking staple for decades through multiple owners and monikers, and the latest, Whiskey Business, offers an update to the space most recently occupied by the beloved Mule Pu...


Finding Common Ground

Chef David Hollister had a busy 2015. Along with opening Fort Worth’s two Dagwoods craft beer-and-giant-sandwich emporiums, one near Ridgmar Mall, the other in the West 7th corridor, he quietly helped launch a new TCU-area ga...


The New Normal

Steve Steward
When I was thinking about all the places I wrote about in 2015 (this was after I’d written last week’s Last Call), I realized that I’ve had a comparatively tame year of roaming around the 817’s drinking scene. You’d t...

I like Yelp for its maps and search function. It’s pretty helpful for finding dives that have somehow escaped search engine indexing, but because Yelp allows feedback only in the form of buttons that mark reviews as “funny,...

Last Call

Eldritch 8-Ball

Just in time to be too late for Halloween, I discovered another allegedly haunted bar. I say “discovered” as if I had to hack through miles of dangerous jungle and even more dangerous jungle creatures to carefully unearth s...
