Editor's Letter

As a Houston native, trips westward to the Texas Hill Country as a child revealed an entirely new landscape — one filled with hills as the name would suggest. What a lot of out-of-towners don’t know is that Fort Worth has quite a few hills of its... Read more

You probably noticed that last month we published the premiere issue of our quarterly luxury shelter publication, Fort Worth HOME. We’re pretty proud of it, and we’re bragging about it on bus benches, billboards and radio spots all over town. Thi... Read more

Last year I started this letter by telling you, our readers, that y’all have a lot of opinions. And I’m so proud to report this year that y’all have even more than I thought – 167,957 of them to be exact. That’s how many reader votes we received ... Read more

They say it’s not the destination, it’s the journey. But when you’ve already arrived, it’s really the destination. In this issue, we invite you to be both a tourist and the antithesis of a tourist in your own city. That little obscure restaurant ... Read more

It’s called an “Instagram rabbit hole.” You click on a friend, and then the friend they tagged, and then the location that was geotagged, and then a hashtag, and so on and so forth. I’m ashamed to admit that when I fall in said rabbit hole, I can... Read more

  As you know, I’ve been MIA over the last few months on maternity leave. And, I have to say, something miraculous happened in the nine months leading up to that leave. Yes, science and magic and all of that. But, also…brunch.  I had never full... Read more

After nearly a year, I’m stepping out of editor retirement for a few months until Kendall’s return. Don’t worry, you aren’t stuck with me.  I should give you fair warning before going any further: Do not read this issue on an empty stomach. It’s... Read more

I’m one of those people who asks a lot of questions. After meeting people, I want to know where they are from, what they do, how they met their significant other, and if it’s not too much to ask, where exactly they live. I think, and really hope,... Read more

Memories from vacations can range from heavenly to nightmarish depending on various factors: travel, accommodations, company, weather, etc. A few quickly come to mind for me. Heavenly: Seeing baby cheetahs on safari in Africa. Nightmarish: Stayi... Read more

What is it about another person’s home that’s so fascinating? It’s why we insist on a tour the moment we walk into a friend’s home for the first time. It’s why a couple from Waco has turned inexpensive real estate into an HGTV empire, and it’s w... Read more

Y’all have a lot of opinions. This is the main thing I learned while evaluating the more than 126,000 votes for our 2016 Best Of list. Whether it was something as simple as a car wash, or impassioned as a restaurant, you Fort Worth faithful turne... Read more

I remember the days of my early 20s when going out for any particular beverage at any particular place (after what I thought then was a long day of work) was considered “happy hour.” In reality, it was just drinks. Locations were chosen based on ... Read more

Call it a weird choice of reading material, but on my honeymoon a couple of years ago, I read all 343 pages of Texas vs. Davis: The Only Complete Account of the Bizarre Thomas Cullen Davis Murder Case by Mike Cochran. If you aren’t familiar, it’s... Read more

When I was a student at TCU, there were a few establishments where you could often find me. When I wasn’t at the library, of course, I would frequent spots like Snookies, The Cellar, Texadelphia, Jon’s Grille, Oui Lounge and Ocean Rock, just to n... Read more

You know those people who go to dinner and order a flatbread and a side salad? Ok, sometimes they order salmon and a side salad, but you get the picture. Well, that’s not me. Let’s just say I like to eat. Usually, in the name of variety of cours... Read more

I resolve to go to the Fort Worth Central Public Library more in 2016. When I walked into the stately downtown building on a scouting trip, my first thought was, It’s really embarrassing that I’ve never been here before. My second was, This is t... Read more

I have fallen in love with Fort Worth exactly two times. Once, when I moved here at the age of 18 to attend TCU, and again 10 years later when I moved back after a 3-year hiatus. One lazy morning upon my return, I stumbled to the nearest grocery... Read more

The other morning before work, I woke up, stumbled into the kitchen and found we were out of coffee. Running a few minutes behind (mainly due to aforementioned lack of caffeine but also because of last-minute attire change due to four-legged frie... Read more

Growing up, my parents were strict about our meals. We were required to eat two vegetables each night, with at least one of them being green, and we couldn’t leave the table unless we had gulped down a glass of milk. But every Friday night, we wo... Read more

I don’t like ice cream. I know it’s weird, and most often when I tell people, they look at me strangely like I’ve just said, “I hate puppies.” On our cover this month is a sweet treat from one of our 2015 Best Of winners, Melt Ice Creams. Owner ... Read more
