Fair Weather Food – Fort Worth Weekly
If you don’t like the Texas weather, just wait. Cliche? Total. Exactly? Absolutely. With the bad weather largely behind us, here are eight ideas for eating and drinking for better days.
1.) Another type of detox
Are you interested in a cruelty-free diet but feel emotionally and mentally overwhelmed by the thought of additional research? The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals make it easy. Through the ASPCAs Factory Farm Detox Program, you can do a test run by committing to a weeklong plan that removes factory-grown foods from your diet. Once you’ve signed up for the Monday through Sunday detox, you’ll find tips and resources on how to shop humanely, understand how food labels are translated, and find better-being products that you’re already shopping for. For more information, see.
2.) Kitchen from Hell
With Fort Worth’s own chef Jordan Savell – a candidate for the current season of Hell’s Kitchen – in the hot seat last week’s episode, Thursday’s 6pm to 8pm is the perfect time to catch up on the show and see if she can is eliminated. Savell’s old employer, Landmark Bar & Kitchen (3008 Bledsoe St, 817-984-1166) is hosting a weekly event Hell kitchen Watch party when you feel like getting out.
3.) The benefits of a great location
On the corner of Montgomery and I-30 is the huge Christ Chapel Bible Church. There is an easily accessible cafe on the main street of the property that is open to the public and supports the Church’s missionary work. The advantage (3701 Birchman Av, 817-731-4329) was closed for most of the pandemic but reopened last week with a new drink. The African Red Latte contains rooibos herbal tea, a caffeine-free treat that goes well with cinnamon and honey. You can find updates and specials at Facebook.com/CCBCPerk.
4.) Get your quarters
In addition to billiards and the only snooker table in Fort Worth, there are dartboards, golden tee, table football, Texas Hold’em tournaments, and karaoke to keep you entertained at Puckett’s (5707 Crowley Rd, 817-293-8286). Puckett’s has been closed since the pandemic began and is now finally ready to go again.
5.) Fiesta for the opening
From Fri to Sun you drive to Mansfield for the official opening of Mama Angie’s Mexican Cocina (8120 Rendon Bloodworth Rd, 469-673-6333). There will be prize draws, freebies and margaritas every day. During the gentle opening phase over the past few months, Mama Angie’s has been collecting customer feedback, making some changes and even adding some new recipes to her Tex-Mex mix. “We know you will love her!” Visit Mama-Angies.com for more information.
