The Hitman’s Bodyguard

One of the top bodyguards in the business (Ryan Reynolds) has suffered a career mishap and has hit rock bottom. His new client (Samuel L. Jackson) is a hit man that has to testify against the evil leader of Belarus (Gary Oldman) at the International Court of Justice at The Hague. The freedom of the…

Ray Charles

Meet Ray Charles. I found him on Friday, August 10, 2017, in the middle of Northside Drive.  I almost got hit twice trying to save him. I took him straight to the vet.  They called me about 2 hours later with an extremely grim prognosis. He is 10-11 years old.  Fully blind in one eye, with…

Cattlemen’s Steak House – Fort Worth, Texas

Sometimes a girl just needs some serious man-food.  When this happens to me, I head to Cattlemen’s for lunch. Pretty much everybody knows where it is, but not everyone has been. For over 70 years, Cattlemen’s has been serving up some damn good steaks to the residents and visitors of The Fort. Almost always, whoever…

Landline

A much-welcomed break to the Summer blockbuster madness, I really enjoyed “Landline”. Set in New York City in 1995, it seemed quite current, aside from the lack of cell phones. The youngest daughter is trying to figure out who she is, the parents are still basically trying to figure out what they want, and the…

TV – 2017 Fall Premiere Dates

Summer is winding down and the events for Autumn are gearing up. For television, this means new offerings and the return of your favorite shows. Starting with the returns, the new shows are at the bottom of the list. I give all credit to my favorite go-to entertainment site, Dark Horizons. What will you be…

Gus’s Fried Chicken – Fort Worth, Texas

I will do it, but rarely. I will write about chain restaurants. In this case, the closest locations to the one in Fort Worth are Austin and Little Rock, so I think it’s OK. Gina and Ms. Maggie Vanderbilt built their first fried chicken place in Mason, TN in 1973 after many years of selling…

Lumi Snow – Fort Worth, Texas

In North Fort Worth, there is a little dessert spot called Lumi Snow. It’s not ice cream. It’s not a snow cone. It is a cold dessert served on slate with an elaborate and fun presentation. This place is popular and seating is sparse. While you are waiting, it is perfectly acceptable to stare at…

Drew’s Place – Fort Worth, Texas

When I need comfort food this is where I go.  I will go as far to say that this is my absolute favorite place to eat in Fort Worth. Since 1987, Drew’s Place has been serving some home cooked Soul Food. Their fried chicken is the best in The Fort.  It’s crispy, juicy and full…

Their Finest

One of this summer’s big blockbusters, Dunkirk, hits theaters this Friday. I love the story of Dunkirk. SPOILER ALERT – Sort of. It is history, after all. During World War II, from May 26th – June 4th, 1940, there were British, Canadian and Dutch Allied soldiers trapped at the French Dunkirk harbor with Nazis advancing…

The Myrtles Plantation – St. Francisville, Louisiana

Deep in Louisiana between Alexandria and Baton Rouge is one of America’s most haunted locations – The Myrtles Plantation. When you are going to The Myrtles, your GPS cannot find it.  It will take you to every location around it, but not there. Eventually, you make it.  When you drive up to the house, the landscape takes you…

Meso Maya – Fort Worth, Texas

If I were to wear an I ❤ Meso Maya t-shirt with flashing lights while throwing a Mardi Gras-esque parade with sky writers above, it would not be sufficient enough to express how delighted I am with Meso Maya. Located in Tanglewood on Hulen in the old Rock Fish location, Meso Maya has made a…
