’Cue Up Soda Springs

This barbecue joint in White Settlement is friendly but not memorable.
STEVE STEWARD
The town of White Settlement might still be living down its 2009 opportunity to change its name to something less racially charged. However, the little west-o’-Fort Worth ville is still a homey place. A culinary mecca? Hardly...


Upward to The Cellar

Last Call
One night, probably two or three years ago, I was leaning into the railing around The Moon’s porch, about four whiskeys deep into a soapbox speech about what kind of bar I’d run if I ever had the capital to open one, when I...



Bull, Bush, Bluesface

Last Call
I’m a fan of entertainment districts, especially on weekends. When it comes to weekday drinking, however, nothing beats a neighborhood pub.


Division Intervention

Last Call
You might say I’ve been feeling the funk a little, and not the kind that comes out of Parliament’s Mothership. More specifically, it’s a summertime blues spawned from a host of disappointments led by the dreadful weather....



Cowtown Bar & Grill: Bust a Move

Last Call
If there’s one thing that aptly captures the fenced-in ennui of a Monday, it’s getting stuck at a left-turn light that never turns green. I made this connection when the light at the Camp Bowie/377 traffic circle cycled thr...


Scampi’s Cove: A Lakeside Grill

Out on Eagle Mountain Lake is a comfort-food haven.

A Streetcar Named Perspire

Last Call
About 9 a.m. last Tuesday, I popped out of a dead sleep with the nagging suspicion that I was already late for something really important. I couldn’t think of what it was, so I shut my eyes again, but then I heard this huge f...


Hanna and the Company

This teenager and her action thriller confuse me.
KRISTIAN LIN
Our action thrillers right now seem to be awash in young girls who are stone cold killers. The odd British entry Hanna is the latest of the bunch, coming after the flawed but unfairly maligned Sucker Punch and last year’s Kic...



From the Mouths …

Static
When Fort Worth Weekly’s multitalented freelancer Caroline Collier wrote about the spike in Ecstasy use among local high school students last month (“A Kandi-Coated World,” Oct. 6, 2010) a number of local ravers and young...


Die With Your Boots On

Last Call
Monday morning, I woke up on the couch in a torso-shaped puddle of sweat. It was one of those moments when I briefly wondered where I was, but then I saw the empty tallboys and Whatawrappers decorating the coffee table and real...
