I will be at Pour House for the game. Going to the TCU game till the 4th quater and will try to get to PH to see the end of the TCU game. I am banking on a couple of groups leaving right after the TCU game ends and snagging their table.
I would you meet you guys, but I am heading to Lubbock. Keep me in the loop for more game watchings or happy hours.
Fort Worth: Where Da White Women At
Lanny's Alta Cocina Mexicana
Full disclosure he's a good friend, and he's part of the family who owns Joe T's.
He trained at the CIA. He worked with/for Rick Bayless at Topolobampo and Frontera Grill. He worked with Diana Kennedy. His restaurant is fantastic.
He knows what he is doing.
I'm a FW native though i don't get back that often. Just a quick shout out for El Rancho Grande messcan food on the north side. This place used to be the best in town, but its been a while since i've been there. I understand the same family still owns the joint.
I've heard mixed reviews on his place. Some are sold and others say it's way too expensive for the quality. I've never been there but personally I think there are some concepts that Fort Worth isn't really ready to accept. $#@!, sushi just started getting popular a few years ago. Is this one of those concepts? I don't know but I should definitely give it a shot.
I went to Lanny's a few years ago. If you are looking for a pricey, high-end foodie experience, it's a good place. If you interested in eating a meal there, move along. I was satisfied with the food quality, but it was very pricey for the food quantity. I wasn't expecting Pancho's Buffet when I sat down, but after dropping that kind of dough on "dinner," you will definitely be hitting up Whataburger drive thru afterwards.
There are plenty of other very nice restaurants in FW where your taste buds and stomach are equally impressed when you leave.
Made it to Lola's for the first time last night to see Scott Copeland play. That is a pretty kick ass spot. Also hit up 8.0, Rooster, and Pour House.
Anybody go to any FW Texas Exes events? There is a Thirsty Thursday tonight at Whiskey and Rye.
I had a really good meal at Red Cactus the other night next to TCU. I may stop by the Pour House for the game.
blue sushi sake is now open at museum place across from eddie v's. i'd call it a bit "dallas lite" but the food is awesome and i had a damn good time.
any of you guys go to the Rahr brewery? I'm bout to head there right now.
They've been closed for a while cuz their roof caved in last winter but they open every wednesday and saturday for a tour and tasting.
grew up and lived in/near Fort Worth til 2000.
Angelo's and Sammy's for bbq
Wed. night Enchilada Dinners at El Fenix on Camp Bowie
Marjie's Italian Garden (is that still there?)
Blue Mesa for Sunday brunch
JJ's Oyster Bar
sometimes I miss Fort Worth....
I made my first trip to Ft. Worth as an adult last week. Stayed downtown, and really enjoyed it. It's a really walkable downtown area, and generally kicks the $#@! out of Dallas from my experience. This is going to sound ridiculously lame, but I split my time between the flying saucer and the fox and hound. Wifi, a table to work at, and some beer is all I require. I'll be heading back for a week within the next year and will remember this thread to try out some bars/restaurants that I can't get in Austin.
Finally made it over to So 7 Love Shack for dinner tonight after happy hour at the Rooster. It has a pretty damn good vibe at So 7 Love Shack with live music and the outside seating. I was wanting to hit Taco Heads later tonight after the bars, but it appears they are closed for a plumbing issue. There is a lot of people in the West 7th area right now, so it should be a great night.
What is the scouting report of the Rooster HH ladies?
Had Texas de Brazil tonight. Going to take me a few weeks to recover.
Rooster's (sausage fest with some TCU cover band playing), Pour House (ok), Pete's (dead), Library (Ghetto), 9 (weak), Houston (pretty solid)
For as promising as I thought it was going to be, it was just okay. Finally the promise of Ranger playoff tickets allowed me to hook up.
Yeah, would have stayed away from downtown tonight, esp. Library. Sometimes English is the second language there on Thursdays...
Once the Trinity Project is complete Fort Worth will only be that much better.
Miss my native city.
does Library still have the Thurs. $1.50 beer special?
and Chuy's is expected to open in November over in So7
Late notice, but Earl is supposed to be at the Co-op Grand Opening tonight on 7th. Headed that way shortly...
That was a cool deal... Ribbon cutting @ the Co-op with Earl, then dinner & an autograph @ Boomer Jack's for $25 through the FW Exes.
He's in pretty rough shape, though.
I can post a pic of his autograph, but his isn't exactly rare. I don't take pics of things in public.
However, there is a little yogurt shop next to Boomer Jack's that is mother $#@!ing crawling with dumb 19-year old TCU coeds in wind shorts... That, I most certainly should have taken a few pics of!
I like the Rooster though. You can't beat $1.50 cans, and the brisket tacos are really good. It's a great place for a lazy Sunday spending 6+ hours watching DirecTV NFL Sunday Ticket.
I was thinking about watching Texas-Nebraska there, out on the patio, but with TCU and the Rangers playing at 3pm, it's going to be a cluster$#@! at every sports bar.
The Rooster is a good spot. It seems that happy hour and day drinking especially on the weekends you can find a good crowd in there. I am sure I will be there several times this weekend as well.
If there was one place that I believe you can get away from the cluster$#@! I believe the Rooster is it. They have $0.50 wings and $5.00 Coors Light pitchers during the TCU games.
I will be there Sunday though. I really like just kicking back in there on Sunday and watching football. Plus, last weekend when I walked out of there my tab was just over 20 bucks. For lunch and 10 beers. Can't beat it.
parking in the rooster parking lot is getting ridiculous. they are towing people that go into blue sushi sake like crazy. they even towed the owner of the rooster when he was eating there. i assume it's the real estate owner who is enforcing it.
I am at the Rooster right now and there is only 7 people here. They will have the Rangers sound on, but will have the Texas game on a couple of tvs along with TCU. The parking lot to Pour House was already packed.
Solid game watching experience at the Rooster.
14 Lone Star Lights + food = 28 dollar tab.
