looking to rent or buy?
I got a realtor rec if you need one. He found my house close to there
no matter where you are in fw you are a 5 mile walk to the colonial. so thats good.
Anybody live in oakhurst or have a friend that does? I'm close to offering on a house there but want to chat with a local first.
I just want to give a shout out to The Leaky Colander food truck at Republic St. Bar. They took over the old truck that Heim BBQ started in. The dude makes some good food and the homemade tater tots are amazing.
What's interesting to me is how fairmount and Ryan place home values overcame the FWISD issue to grow so quickly the last few years. And while each city is its own real estate animal, Austin ISD and Dallas ISD certainly haven't held back explosive value growth in the urban core.
Fort Worth private schools have done a great job marketing themselves and a big sell is the scare tactic of sending your kid to FWISD with the gen pop. some schools truly suck but Paschal and Arlington heights are both pretty good schools.
Stockshow/rodeo... If I'm not exactly 'bout that life should it register with me? I guess I'm wondering, is it some big party setup or just a bunch of $#@! kickers rolling into town for a month with a death wish carnival?
Go to the Stock Show one day when the weather's decent since you're new to FW. Ain't gotta do the whole rodeo thing.
stockshow and rodeo is super kickass.
Rodeo is always a good time. Bulls Night Out or the Super Shootout are the best nights. Oh, and the rediculous opening prayer to Jesus Christ is always good for a laugh.
The concert series in that Coors Light tent usually has some decent acts. Couple of years ago I caught Billy Joe Shaver one night, Joe Ely another night. I think I paid $7 to get into the Stock Show and then whatever I spent on beer to stand right at the stage and watch them rock out.
30th birthday this week. Wife is treating me to steak. What's the best place around? Ruth Chris, Del Frisco, Capital Grill, H3? The only requirement is that it have an orgasmic Ribeye. Thanks!

Reata was aggressively average when I've had it.
Thanks! I had a steak at Reata once and while it was very good it wasn't the best ever. I think I messed up by getting some kind of shrimp or lobster bisque stuff on top of the steak. Appreciate the suggestions!
If you like live music 'listening room' style, do yourself a favor and see a show at live oak. I come away more impressed each time I see a show there.
You $#@!ing make a Stock Show appearance yet?

I'm not exactly sure why it makes me laugh, but all this hullabaloo about coyote effin ugly coming to FW trips me out.
There was one in Deep Ellum ~2003-4. It sucked and closed quickly. I can't imagine this one will last long.
It's almost time to bid adios to Ojos Locos, which per the twitters is closing in March and will be replaced by a CVS.
Heard hopdoddy sign went up in the new Tom Thumb development on W7
Any thoughts on the new Mr. Gatti's Pizza coming to W.7th? I worked at the one on 183 N. in Austin back in the late 70's, and their pizza was one of the best, but the last one I had years ago was very subpar. Apparently, the new owners have promised to return to the original recipes, so there is hope!
Haven't had it since I was in college hitting up the one on MLK
i $#@!ing loved mr gattis growing up in Austin. without question my favorite pizza, one on MLK was money.
had once in the last 2-3 years and it was pretty meh. if they go back to old recipes, it will be a staple in our house.
checked out the new Fuel City last night for some late night tacos. They seemed to be twice as big as the ones you get at Dallas.
The location is kinda odd but the place is very nice (compared to the one in Dallas) and not as many sketchy folks lingering around
