Sunday EVENIN’ Comin’ Down

LAST CALL
Long ago, when I had a real job, one that required me to be behind a desk at 9 a.m., go to weekly meetings to hear about “shared learnings,” and listen to fussy clients berate my team’s leader over a speakerphone, I devel...

Why We Go to Joe T.’s

LAST CALL
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

LAST CALL
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 ...

Decisions

LAST CALL
Saturday night, after a disappointing bowl of pho from Phuong in Haltom City (this is what I get for cheating on Pho 95), I headed west on Belknap Street, bound for the third annual Lolaspalooza at Lola’s Saloon. To be fair, ...

On The Town 2012

FORT WORTH WEEKLY STAFF
Cheap Buzz If a pint after work is your five o’clock world, no reason to make it painful on your wallet. On Monday, head west to Crowbar Tattoo Saloon (5840 Jacksboro Hwy). Though local bands rock this cabin-esque joint on we...



Last Call

RoboPub

LAST CALL
Earlier this week, I saw a still from the set of the impending RoboCop reboot, and, frankly, I already don’t want to see this movie. The photo showed a charcoal-colored humanoid who looks like any one of the legion of robotic...


Getcha some seventy-five-cent wells at PR's.

Great PR’s

LAST CALL
For whatever reason, I’ve always been led to believe that PR’s is kind of rough, bordering on stabby, but after dropping by on Thursday, I kind of wonder why. I mean, I get it. PR’s is in a part of town, the Stockyards, t...
