Welcome to Billy Bob’s Texas!

T

The building now known as Billy Bob’s Texas was built in 1910 and was once an open-air barn used to house prize cattle for the Fort Worth Stock Show. Billy Bob’s Texas opened as “The World’s Largest Honkytonk” in April 1981 to national attention with more than 30 bar stations, country music’s biggest stars, real Pro Bull Riding, and a Texas size dance floor. For almost 40 years, Billy Bob’s has hosted the biggest stars in country music and classic rock from Alabama to ZZ Top. Billy Bob’s has been named “Country Music Club of the Year” 12 times by the Academy of Country Music and the Country Music Association. Visitors to Billy Bob’s are greeted by a history video narrated by George Strait and can enjoy the large collection of memorabilia. Each entertainer leaves a concrete impression displayed on the Wall of Fame. Visitors can see how their hands match up to those of Garth, Willie, or Ringo. The Guitar Bar in Billy Bob’s has 75 guitars autographed by the stars who have performed at the club. Billy Bob’s gift store offers a wide selection of souvenirs and unique western gifts. The HonkyTonk kitchen features mouth-

watering bar-b-que, steaks and burgers along with light meals. Billy Bob’s is a popular facility for conventions, groups, and parties accommodating from an intimate 20 to a Texas-size group of 6,000. There’s plenty of time to enjoy the action of the Fort Worth Stock Show and still make it to a concert at Billy Bob’s! The February concert line up includes Josh Ward, Easton Corbin, Brothers Osborne, LaMafia, Corey Smith, Dwight Yoakam, Mitchell Tenpenny, and Shenandoah. Come experience our Honky Tonk attitude, friendly Fort Worth hospitality, and truly unique atmosphere. Families are always welcome at Billy Bob’s where there’s fun for all ages every day and night. The Lone Star Murder Mystery Dinner in the 81 Club at Billy Bob’s takes a lighthearted trip back to the Wild West where laughs fly like bullets and hilarity is the law of the land. The evening includes an award-winning comedy murder mystery and a chef prepared deluxe gourmet buffet. $85 per person on Valentine’s Day, Feb. 14 or $60 per person on Sat., Feb. 16. Doors open at 7 p.m. and show starts at 8 p.m., www.billybobstexas.com. 817-6247117. 2520 Rodeo Plaza.


“Real Bulls, Not Steel Bulls” read the bumper stickers, a good natured swipe at Gilley’s, whose mechanical bull was a major focus of the movie Urban Cowboy. Instantly, the real bull riding inside the facility separated Billy Bob’s from any other club in the world. However, bull riding is a dangerous sport and Billy Bob’s requires competitors to be pro or semi-pro athletes with a valid rider’s card from a recognized bull riders sanctioning organization.

At Billy Bob’s Texas, delicious smoked Texas Bar-B-Que is our specialty, but our extensive catering menu includes everything from hors d’oeuvres and heart healthy light meals to hand cut steaks. We feature Sliced Beef, Ribs, Pulled Pork, Sausage, Turkey, Chicken Breast, Chicken Fried Steak, Quick Bites and more. Fe b r u a r y 2 0 1 9

West is Among the Best for Culture and Shopping-and-Dining Delights

A

by Michael H. Price

As long as we’re “out where the West begins,” as an iconic figure in Fort Worth’s history described this Cowtown, then we might as well look even further westward within the city itself. Pioneering publisher and civic booster Amon Carter may have intended to give Dallas the razz when he coined that phrase — but the West hardly could have picked a keener starting point than Fort Worth. And Fort Worth, in turn, hardly could have picked a site more right for its burgeoning west side Cultural District. Rippling with heavy-duty commercial, artistic and residential growth since the dawn of the 21st century, the west side overall has seen its very skyline change with the transformation of a busy West Seventh Street into a streamlined conduit connecting the downtown area’s Sundance Square development with the Cultural District. Heading west (naturally) from downtown Fort Worth, one finds the Cultural District radiating from the intersection where Seventh Street crosses University Drive and, in the process, morphs into the historic, brick-paved Camp Bowie Boulevard. Visitors in search of western-style discoveries — from plain-and-fancy dining to fine art and varied entertainment — will find such delights in volume on the west side. Cultural attractions, restaurants, mainstream and special-interest shopping, and lavish natural gardens flourish as a reminder of how Fort Worth has built upon its frontier origins. Several of the world’s finer museums, playhouses and galleries anchor a vast Cultural District. The hand-laid red-brick pavement of Camp Bowie Boulevard is an attraction in itself, lined with an everexpanding array of art galleries, stage-andscreen auditoriums, boutiques, scholarly museums, restaurants and lounges, and shopping malls. 6

The Cultural District The Fort Worth Museum of Science & History commands the westward view of the district from Montgomery Street, and just northward are additional cultural touchstones: Designed by renowned architect Philip Johnson, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art houses a definitive collection of American paintings, photography, and sculpture. The collection spans early nineteenth-century art to mid-twentieth century modernism. It is also home to nearly 400 works by Frederic Remington and Charles M. Russell. Nearby is the Kimbell Art Museum still living up to Newsweek’s description as “arguably the most beautiful museum in America” including its new Renzo Piano Pavilion addition. The neighboring Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth is the oldest such museum in Texas — housed in a workof-art 2002 building designed by worldrenowned Japanese architect, Tadao Ando, and featuring bold gallery exhibitions, concert attractions and, every weekend, leading-edge independent-studio films. The Museum of Science & History, anchoring a campus within the Cultural District, has been designed by similarly renowned architects Ricardo and Victor Legorreta. Inside the Museum of Science & History, one finds vast galleries of Texas-bred dinosaur specimens and the state’s oil-and-gas heritage, in addition to the Cattle Raisers Museum, the Fort Worth Children’s Museum, Stars Café, and a new digital Noble Planetarium. The Omni Theater, an IMAX® superscreen dome, links with the Museum of Science & History and boasts a new digital sound system and enhanced lighting.The National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame is next door to the FWMS&H.The NCM&HF honors women of the American West from

those who lived and worked on ranches or who led an expedition, or sat before an easel, aimed a rifle and hit the bull’s eye, or sat on the Supreme Court. When the museum meanderings trigger an appetite for fine dining, two long-established, museum-based cafés stand ready to serve. The Kimbell Buffet Restaurant offers indoor or patio lunch and a light evening menu within one of the most beautiful modern buildings in America. The Modern Art Museum’s 250-seat Café Modern, with an outdoor terrace, overlooks a serene reflecting pond. The Modern’s full-service kitchen delivers superb cuisine for lunch, Sunday brunch, and scheduled seasonal dinners. The Great Outdoors offers breakfast subs, lunch and dinner subs, soups, salads and all natural ice cream. Off University on White Settlement Road, a Texas barbecue tradition reigns at Angelo’s, offering a half-century of first-class BBQ and ultra-chilled beer. The Fort Worth Community Art Center, at the district’s western edge, showcases work by the city’s homegrown community of artists, in addition to live-theater venues. Neighboring the museum community is the city’s landmark Will Rogers Memorial Center, a versatile 85-acre entertainment complex — with 45 acres housing the Will Rogers Coliseum & Auditorium. Its majestic Pioneer Tower dates from the Texas Centennial Celebration of 1936. Still the most imposing site within the district, the coliseum holds pride of place as the first domed structure of its kind in the world. The complex also boasts an equestrian center and exhibit halls, home to the annual Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. Showplaces of Heritage and Artistry and Nature Shoppers can find a broad selection of merchandise in the Cultural District’s specialty shops. European antiques and upholstery can be found at Domain XCIV and the dh collection boasts progressive furniture designs in an appetite-whetting environment. 8

Southward off University Drive, visitors can experience the glories of nature at Trinity Park, a pristine oasis bordered by a fork of the placid Trinity River. Here, picnickers, joggers, and strollers can explore meandering pathways or travel on a miniature railroad. Opposite the park, across University Drive, Fort Worth’s Botanic Garden beckons — the oldest such site in Texas, a lush 109-acre tapestry of dappled shade accented by vibrant splashes of color. The Garden is home to thousands of species of native and exotic plants in 21 specialty gardens. The European-designed Rose Garden features more than 3,400 roses, and the 10,000-square-foot Conservatory houses tropical flowers and foliage from around the world. An on-site Gardens Restaurant serves light lunches and refreshments — with a view of the Garden and a varied gallery that often displays the work of local artists. Adjacent to the Botanic Garden is the Botanical Research Institute of Texas (BRIT) whose mission is to “reduce its footprint on the natural world as well as protect and restore ecosystem services.” BRIT’s building was designed as an example of how much of this can be accomplished. A short distance southward lies the illustrious Fort Worth Zoo, nationally ranked among the finest. The Zoo is home to thousands of animals, both native and exotic. Viewing facilities and natural habitat exhibits are set up for optimal views of the animals, often separated from their observers by only a river, a waterfall, or a large window. Shaded rest spots and picnic tables are available, with several on-site eateries. Across from the Zoo, Log Cabin Village offers another view of the city’s rich frontier history boasting seven authentic log homes, dating from the mid-to-late 1800s. Perioddressed interpreters greet visitors inside each cabin offering a living history of the home and its origin. The mood to explore might be triggered by art, dining, shopping, or the wonders of nature. Fort Worth’s west side meets all these interests and then some!

Dining at Crockett Row

By Laurie James, Culinary Blogger, Visit Fort Worth

The 16,000-square-feet Food Hall at Crockett Row is full of family-friendly space for eating and drinking featuring cuisine from all over the foodie map. BUTLER’S CABINET The Crockett Row area has been craving a great breakfast joint. Butler’s Cabinet, a coffeedeli-market run by ebullient Chef Joshua Harmon, fills that bill. You’ll find morning favorites like avocado toast, grits and collards topped with a softcooked egg, and bagels with assorted schmears. Lunch and dinner options include sandwiches, deviled eggs with house-made mayo, pickles, and mustard, and a “picnic basket” full of charcuterie, cheese, sweets and other goodies. NOT JUST Q’S Not Just Q’s Chef Eric Hansen won’t be too phased by the demand for his oak-smoked barbecue in his new Food Hall stall. The pitmaster’s acclaimed food truck, which he owns with business partner and former TCU standout David Hawthorne, packs a smoker that can handled 500 pounds of brisket and related ‘cue items. The prime brisket has an amazing crust courtesy of a rub with olive oil, black pepper, chile, onion, garlic, and “a lot of love,” according to Hansen. AINA POKE CO. Aina Poke Co. brings the flavors of the Hawaiian Islands to the Fort with simple, fresh, sustainablysourced fish served in the Hawaiian tradition: immaculately fresh sushi-grade tuna or salmon served on a bed of sticky rice. The shoyu-kissed salmon had a great salty flavor, and the firecracker salmon tossed in a spicy mayo was a favorite of the diner who didn’t prefer sushi. The plates come decorated with darling microgreens and housepickled veggies. RNB Rollin’ and Bowlin’ started out as the brainchild of TCU students Sophia Karbowski and Austin Patry. The two teamed up to concept a food truck they named after the açaí-based bowls and smoothies they turned out in their truck. The menu at the Food Hall storefront includes sweet or savory bowls and smoothies, organic cold-pressed juices, and a few sandwiches in case you’re really hungry. THE DOCK Lobster rolls and clam chowder aren’t easily found on menus at Fort Worth restaurant. Enter The Dock, another food truck-turned-food hall resident. If you’re hankering for a “lobstah” roll or a bowl of Boston-style clam “chowdah,” look no further. Chef Brett Curtis imports sustainably raised seafood to stuff his buttery split-top rolls.

SID RICHARDSON MUSEUM - The museum’s focus exhibition, “Another Frontier: Frederic Remington’s East” features paintings and artifacts on loan from the Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, New York, as well as archival items from the St. Lawrence University Special Collections Library in Canton, New York. The paintings, letters, photographs, sketches, and diary entries take visitors far from Remington’s West to introduce them to the artist’s circle of Eastern friends, and to his beloved North Country. He made numerous trips to the West over the years, but composed his multitude of illustrations, paintings, sculptures, and writings in the East. Affected by French Impressionism, their art exuded an immediacy and freshness of vision that appealed to Remington. As hugely important as the West was for Frederic Remington, and he for it, the East was another frontier that nurtured and sustained his art. Hrs. Mon.-Thurs. 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Fri. & Sat. 9 a.m.-8 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m. Free admission and free tours. Free valet parking in Sundance Square.

Performances 8 p.m. Fri. & Sat., 3 p.m. Sun. Ticket prices $22-$25. For more information, 817-488-4842, www.runwaytheatre.com. 215 North Dooley St., Grapevine, TX 76051. Through Feb. 24 Jubilee Theatre presents Obama-Ology. When African-American college graduate Warren takes a job with the 2008 Obama campaign, he’s fired up and ready to go – until he lands in the troubled streets of East Cleveland. But somewhere between knocking on doors, fending off cops, and questioning his own racial and sexual identity, he learns that changing society isn’t as easy as he imagined. A stunning new play that demonstrates the resilience of the human spirit to overcome defeat at the hands of social repression and financial hardship. Performance times and prices vary. For information, 817-338-4411, www. jubileetheatre.org. 506 Main St. Through March 9 Our Town at Circle Theatre. Thornton Wilder’s iconic Pulitzer Prize winning drama makes a rare not-tobe-missed visit to our stage. Narrated by a stage manager and performed with minimal props and sets, audiences follow the Webb and Gibbs families as their children fall in love, marry, and eventually – in one of the most famous scenes in American theatre – die. Performance times and prices vary. For more information, 817-877-3040, www. circletheatre.com. 230 West Fourth Street in Sundance Square. Through March 17 FOCUS: Dirk Braeckman exhibit at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. The photographs of Ghent-based Dirk Braeckman (b. 1958, Eeklo, Belgium) have a distinct stillness and quietude that counter the whirl of today’s visual landscape. Braeckman’s deeply gray photographs are often abstracted, contributing to the mystery and intrigue of what his images convey while adding a sense of distance to the intimate interiors and views he depicts. Tickets $16 adults 18+, $10 students with ID & $12 seniors 60+. Free for children 18 & under and Modern members. Admission is half off on Sundays and free on Fridays. Hrs. Tues. 10 a.m.-7 p.m., Wed. & Thurs. 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Fri. 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Sat. & Sun. 10 a.m.-5 p.m., closed Mon.

Amon Carter Museum has acquired one of the world’s finest collections of American paintings, photographs, sculpture, and works on paper. Key selections from the collection—from epic landscape and western paintings, elegant still lifes, and singular representations of war and exploration, to unparalleled modernist sculptures and abstractions—are featured in an exciting presentation that reveals the singularity of the Amon Carter collection. Free admission. Hrs. Tues., Wed., Fri., Sat. 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Thurs. 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m., closed Mon. For more information, 817-7381933, www.cartermuseum.org/exhibitions. 3501 Camp Bowie Blvd. Through June 2 “Gabriel Dawe: Plexus no. 34” is at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art. The Amon Carter has commissioned a large scale, site-specific installation of more than eighty miles of multicolored thread by internationally celebrated Mexican born, Dallas-based artist Gabriel Dawe. Words cannot do justice to the transformative power of Dawe’s sculptural marvels, which he weaves from thousands of thin strands. They look like frozen light and Technicolor vaporous mist, drawing attention to the majestic architecture and natural light of the museum’s Atrium. Admission free. Tues., Wed., Fri., Sat. 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Thurs. 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Sun. noon-5 p.m., closed Mon. For more information, 817-738-1933, www. cartermuseum.org/exhibitions. 3501 Camp Bowie Blvd. Through Sept. 8 “Another Frontier: Frederic Remington’s East” at the Sid Richardson Museum. This exhibition features paintings and artifacts on loan from the Frederic Remington Art Museum in Ogdensburg, New York, as well as archival items from the St. Lawrence University Special Collections Library in Canton, New York. The paintings, letters, photographs, sketches, and diary entries take visitors far from Remington’s West to introduce them to the artist’s circle of Eastern friends, and to his beloved North Country. Open daily, the museum offers free admission and docent-guided tours every Tuesday and Saturday at 2 p.m. For hours and a calendar of special events and programs, www.sidrichardsonmuseum.org. 309 Main St. Through Nov. 16 Lone Star Murder Mysteries presents Bushwhacked at Bronco Bob’s. The show must go on, but it can’t without the namesake of the world renowned “Bronco Bob’s Wild West Extravaganza.” Bronco Bob may be gone, but no one is missing him. The unpopular owner of the biggest show in town was much better at pleasing his fans than his employees. Doors open at 7 p.m., and the show begins at 8 p.m. $59 per person for entertainment and dinner. Fe b r u a r y 2 0 1 9
