While in school at TCU in the 1980s, I worked as a waiter at Abernathy’s on West Berry Street, owned by longtime Fort Worth restaurateur David Shaw. He now owns and operates Shaw’s Patio Bar and Grill on West Magnolia. I remember clearly my last dinner shift as a waiter, even though it...

Fort Worth-Arlington was ranked No. 1 on the Forbes list of housing best buys in 2014.  In the Forbes listing, cities were ranked based on housing markets still considered “undervalued” in prices and that offer some of the largest job growth in their economies. According to the...

 If you ask me, we have this whole dessert thing backward. Brownies should be the first course to any meal as far as I’m concerned. Yep, I was that kid at the party who asked for the corner piece with the most icing. As I grew up and my metabolism slowed down, I can’t partake as I...
