Blocking the Brew

LAST CALL
Years ago, I was obsessed with a real-time PC strategy game called Starcraft, in which you guided the actions of militaristic space colonists attempting to gain control of the planets of some far-flung galaxy. The game’s poin...

Sidetracked with Sides

LAST CALL
Are there any bars around here housed in an old Taco Bell? The reason I ask is because a.) that would be funny and b.) there’s a bar east of Hwy. 360 on Division Street that looks like it might have once been a Wendy’s. I g...

Jamming at Gator’s

LAST CALL
I’m just going to throw this out there: All the neon trim lining the eaves of the buildings on Race Street is kind of deceptive. It makes it look like the neighborhood between Sylvania Avenue and Belknap Street is lined with ...

Office Perks

LAST CALL
I’d meant to write about The Office in Euless last week, after I’d dropped in on a Monday evening on my way home from Carrollton. But later, about halfway through writing my first draft, I saw on the bar’s Facebook page t...

Take a Lefty

LAST CALL
If you’re one of those people who wonders what goes on in the dilapidated dives lining East Lancaster Avenue, I’d venture to say that those places are probably far tamer than your imagination. Yes, they might look dumpy and...

That Silverleaf Chill

LAST CALL
I can’t say I’ve ever been a big fan of cigars, but it’s not because there is something inherently bothersome about them to me. I’ve never minded the smell, and the care and consideration with which cigar aficionados sm...
