Grand Cru: Not Sideways

LAST CALL
To be honest, I’m not stoked about the whole Frank Kent Wine Bar/Honda Showroom thing happening on the Near Southside. Oh, sure. I saw a picture of the mock-ups, and it looks neat and all, but you know what that space would h...

Summer at Gator’s

LAST CALL
Here’s a question for real estate professionals: Why is it that certain locations –– despite viable traffic data and appropriate, geo-targeted demographics –– end up spelling doom for whatever business sets up shop th...

Margarita Maddest

LAST CALL
My hunt for the perfect –– or at least the least gross –– margarita started in Arlington, specifically at J. Gilligan’s (400 E. Abram St., 817-274-8561), a downtown area sports bar that’s been around since at least ...

Final Four? Let’s Make it Nine

LAST CALL
Let’s say you’re one of those folks who follow March Madness from the swirling nebula of the round of 64 all the way to its victorious conclusion — and you go see the championship game in person. This year, then, you will...

To Wild Rooster Darkly

LAST CALL
You know that line in Social Distortion’s “Story of My Life” when Mike Ness sings about how the pool hall he loved as a kid is now a 7-Eleven? I’ve always wondered if that actually happened to him, whether there might b...

LAST CALL
If you’ve even glanced at a national news website or flipped on the TV news at some point over the past few days, you’ve probably heard that the weather has been much colder than usual in many parts of the country. In some ...


Sarah Jaffe, Son of Stan, and Ice Eater will perform Saturday at Shipping & Receiving.

Fairmount Wears’ Pop Shop

LAST CALL
Have you heard someone refer to Cowtown as “Fortlandia”? It’s a joke that seems specific to the Fairmount neighborhood, and it’s not entirely off-base, but who cares. If you think this reference to Portlandia is totally...



Now open.

Mad Hatter: Short and Sweet

LAST CALL
Is February the time to open a new bar? Because there are at least three I’ve been to in the last few weeks that aren’t even a month old. I’m not entirely sold on all them. I’m loath to go to the West 7th corridor anywa...

The Local Arrives

LAST CALL
I’m never likely to turn my hand to raising a barn or building a trebuchet, so for the most part, I don’t care that I can’t tell beech from birch. However, being able to say what kind of wood went into the countertops and...
