Why We Go to Joe T.’s

If you’ve lived here long enough, you know that when out of towners come to visit and when the weather’s nice, you stand a good chance of going to Joe T. Garcia’s. And it doesn’t even matter if you think the food is ove...

Wake up, it's happy hour!

The Blackhorse Rises, Shines

According to legend, there was once an itinerant holy man, wandering the countryside performing incredible feats of magic. When he wasn’t controlling the weather, transmogrifying matter, or bringing the dead back to life, he ...


Ode to PBR

“I just realized my life revolves around PBR.” That’s a Facebook update, referring to Pabst Blue Ribbon, not Professional Bull Riders, Inc., recently posted by my friend Matt. He bartends at The Boiled Owl with me and at ...

Embargo is now the site of a weekly Monday night open-mic jamdown.

Open-Mics — and Minds — at Embargo

Back in February, when I wrote a piece on the history of Fort Worth’s metal scene (“Still Riveting,” Feb. 29), I learned a ton about the late, apparently great Tattoo Bar on Lancaster Avenue. Though I never made it to the...


8 a.m. Eight Ball

Is there a good reason for drinking at 9 in the morning on a weekday? I’m sure there are several (some hospital folk don’t get off work until daybreak), but the only one that matters to me is because you can. I thought abou...
