I found out several weeks ago that this issue of the magazine would include a segment about some of the restaurants in Fort Worth that have been around quite awhile.

This month marks the 118th anniversary of the Southwestern Exposition and Livestock Show, or more commonly known as the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. However, for years it was just known as the Fat Stock Show. Unfortunately, some of the livestock took offense at that name and decided to air...
