Scare Season is Here

Big Ticket
Fall can drag here sometimes, either with school starting back up or the weather just not getting as cool as we want. But fall also means the build-up to Halloween, and Fort Worth becomes host to a plethora of spectacular haunts.

From 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. on Friday at the Where House (2510 Hemphill St. on the South Side), the Funkytown Fall Festival will take place, featuring (in order of appearance) Goodwin, Sally Majestic, KatsüK, Spoonfed Tribe, and Pab...



Not for the Faint of Heart

Lock up the whiskey: Redistricting is upon us.

Whence the Scene?

Last Call

Ben Stiller is a bastard in this excellent drama about a failure.
KRISTIAN LIN
Two things you should know off the bat about Greenberg. First, it’s a deeply unlikable movie. Second, I liked it. You see, most movies have main characters who are nice people, because moviegoers tend to prefer the company of...


Korea House BBQ Flames On

Heat is the word at Cityview’s Korea House.
JIMMY FOWLER
Walking into Korea House BBQ in Cityview is a little like entering a meditation center. The walls are a pale tan, white flowers bloom in dark vases, and placid woodwind and string music trickles from the speakers. Even the smil...
