Hey all of you Along the Way with V & J readers! Valerie has been so gracious to let me invade her space today! My name is Shayna & I blog over at All From My Kitchen, My Home & My Life! It's basically a life style blog that focuses on my daily/weekly happenings as well as yummy recipes that I've cooked up!
I was born in raised in the great state of Texas & Fort Worth has always been home to me! I love Fort Worth so much that I think everyone should come & visit! Some of you might want to make a permanent move... I wouldn't blame you! Since I think that everyone should come visit Cowtown at least once in their life, I've put together some of my favorite places & things to do while you're in town!
To start off with, here's a few of our (mine & my boyfriend's) favorite restaurants! Who doesn't love to eat!? This girl for sure does!
When in town everyone should stop by Fred's Texas Cafe!
Not only is the beer cold, always a live band but, the food is great! Matt always has their Fred Burger & I enjoy the chicken quesadillas!
Tex-Mex is one of my FAVORITE foods! I swear, I could eat Mexican food almost everyday! I tell no lies! Joe T. Garcia's Mexican Restaurant is one of the best in town. They have a beautiful patio and margarita's that are to die for! Just be careful, if you have too many you might have a hard time walking out! :)
You can't come to Texas without eating some delicious BBQ! You definitely need to stop by one of Risky's BBQ restaurant locations in town! YUMMM!!! You won't be disappointed!
Since you're probably as stuffed as a whale at this point, here's some places that we like to go to have a little fun!
We are big Texas Ranger's fans & love going to games! If you're in town, you won't want to miss a game! They're a pretty big deal around here!
Rahr Brewery is a local brewer that does tours every Saturday. You can also enjoy a few cold beers (all 3 for $7) and listen to a local musician jam. Fun times have been had at the brewery!
Matt & I also like going to the Omni Theatre to catch a fun show! We've both been going since we were kids & this just so happened to be where our first "official" date took place!
We may or may not be a little partial!
If you're ready to slide into your cowboy boots, the Stockyards is where you'll fit right in! (Cowboy boots are accepted everywhere in town but, you'll feel right at home in the Stockyards)!
Some of our favorite "night life" venues include the White Elephant Saloon. If you're looking for the cowboys & cowgirls - you'll find them here! You can even go watch the rodeo across the street every Friday & Saturday night!
Local celebrity chef Tim Love owns this fine establishment along with several other local Ft. Worth favorites! Love Shack, The Lonesome Dove & his newest restaurant The Woodshed Smokehouse - we haven't had a chance to eat here yet but, several friends have & they love it!
If beer is your thing then you're in luck at The Flying Saucer! They have hundreds of beers! Yes, I said hundreds! You are guaranteed to find something here that you like!
This isn't even the half of it!
After reviewing all of these places that claim out hearts, it sort of seems like we drink a lot!? We don't really,
anymore, but we do like to have a good time wherever we go!
Some other restaurants that I didn't include that we enjoy are Gloria's, Chimy's, Fuzzy's Taco Shop & Winslow's Wine Cafe.
Some other places we like to go for a little fun that I didn't list above is...
And other places we like to go & let loose at that weren't mentioned above are...
I hope you enjoyed my "tour de Fort Worth" & will be visiting soon! Look me up when you're in town! I LOVE to meet new people (especially bloggers) & showing them around town - the local way! If you won't be in town, you can still stop by my humble abode on the internet!
Thanks Valerie for letting me be a guest today!
