The Full Package

LAST CALL
On Sunday night, I left The Boiled Owl around 10:30, having hung around to watch the last third of Drive, a film experience that’s probably as close as a person can get to living inside a video game. My goal involved getting ...

The Bungalow Connection

LAST CALL
I love coincidences. Even if you think of them as the random convergence of completely unrelated trajectories, they’re still pretty cool. I thought about this on Sunday, because I heard sirens go by while a guy at a bar told ...

No Tappa Kegga Brew

LAST CALL
A while back, some off-duty bartenders and I were comparing notes about the ups and downs of making drinks for a living. We all held similar views about jerks, pukers, cheapskates, creepers, drama queens, pretentious a-holes, b...

Niles City: Ever Heard of It?

LAST CALL
I got this from a bar’s website, a cyber-place festooned not only with a Getty Image of people drinking martinis, which I later discovered has absolutely nothing to do with said bar’s actual interior, but also with clip art...

Witten’s Brightens Hurst

LAST CALL
Like Arlingfun, the Mid-Cities tend to receive an unfair amount of disdain, especially from people who live in Fort Worth. People like me, for example. Contempt, however, is relative. For every one Cowtowner looking down his or...

Once More into the Bar

LAST CALL
I recently spent my 35th birthday at Lola’s trying not to get too effed up to pay attention to the bands. I left before that happened, keenly aware (like I am every year on my birthday) that things change and life is short. B...

LAST CALL
In the wake of last week’s column (“Smoke Gets in Your ‘I’s”), the thought occurred to me (via the suggestion of my editor) that maybe Fort Worth is in fact coming around to the idea of banning smoking from all public...

Smoke Gets in Your “I”s

LAST CALL
I’m kind of tired of hating on Dallas. If you live in Fort Worth, bitching about Big D is practically a God-given right or at least a tacit, public oath of fealty to Panther City’s banner, but c’mon: Maybe give it a rest....

2 to 2 Good

Fort Worth Weekly
About a year and a half ago, I took a date to this place on Hwy. 377 called Randi’s 2 to 2. I had a good time, and I wrote a column about it, musing over what I thought was a pretty positive experience. Despite whatever nice ...

Welcome to the Jungle, Ron

LAST CALL
If you want to be beaten down for about 40 minutes, try to visit a business along Highway 121. It’s not like that stretch of slotcar track has ever been fun to drive, but these days, with the never-ending road construction wo...
