When my editor, Kendall Louis, told me this issue was going to be about “Wild Fort Worth,” I just assumed it was going to concentrate on its early beginnings — the 1800s, the gangsters that frequented Jacksboro Highway back in the ’40s and ’50s, or closing time at some...

How did we live without brunch?
  I'm glad this issue of the magazine is finally paying tribute to my favorite meal of the week. Brunch. Now that hasn't always been the case. I was first introduced to it when I was an 18-year-old freshman college student in New Orleans. My parents came down one weekend and took...
