Lived in River Oaks (Castleberry High) most of my young life. Moved off Sam Calloway and lived there until my 20’s. Stayed on the west side until last year we moved to Aledo.

 

There was a guy named Lucky that had a baseball card shop in River Oaks. I grew up on the west side of Fort Worth. Spent a lot of my youth on the west side lions fields. There was a good pizza place called Partons right over there. Once tried to get into New Orleans nights in high school. I went to a private school.

Partons is still going strong. What was the name of the baseball card shop on Williams Rd right by Western Hills?

We really, really suck at this football stuff.

Last season was a turning point for the Fort Worth Diamond Hill-Jarvis football program. The Eagles snapped a 77-game losing streak and won three games for the first time since 2005. 

They checked off the next item on their list in the regular season finale on Thursday vs. Western Hills — win a district game. 

DHJ beat WHHS 23-20 for it first district win in 10 years.

Can't remember the name, but I used to ride my bike there all the time growing up.

there was a card shop in Haltom City on Stanley Keller and 377 next to Winn Dickme. Remember riding my bike over there to buy the Mark McGwire rookie card. The one with him wearing the USA baseball uniform. I thought i was king of the world with that thing.

Weren’t y’all pretty decent back in our days? I know you’re a tad older but still close enough. I know the baseball program was always legit.

Baseball was good, football almost always sucked. May have mixed in a couple 7-win seasons, but those were definitely exceptions.

Not sure how accurate Wiki is with regard to HS football, but shows we have 3 playoff Ws in history. ‘69/82/96, that’s pretty fucking awful.

I spent a lot of my childhood in North Side. Great grandparents and Grandpa lived in Diamond Hill off Oscar over by terminal/dean. Mom spent most of her childhood there. Jarvis sucked at all sports other than soccer from what i remember and even than they weren't very good. When I was 16 i used to buy Old English at Long & Decatur.  Shit used to pop off at El Parian night club off Dean. First time I ever saw a taco/food truck was there. probably around '92

Not in the playoffs, maybe the regular season. Buddy that was there specifically remembers Derek Dorris of Azle running all over us to end the season.

We will have to agree to disagree. Im telling you we beat Western Hills in 1996 at the old Texas Stadium. we finished undefeated and won our district. you guys were 5A back then with OD Wyatt and Dunbar.

He ran all over everyone. They(Azle) were in our district in 96 and he ran the opening kickoff back against us.

I think you’re off. WH was definitely 4A that year. Looks like Haltom was 93.

We switched from 5A after the ‘96 school year (my senior year) to 4A in ‘96-97. That put us back with Arlington Heights, our biggest “rival”. Weatherford & Azle would not have been 5A back then either. We beat Weatherwood at Brewer.

i figured Southwest would of been ya'lls biggest rival. Richland was ours. we were both undefeated in the fall of '96. we beat them for the district title 12-6. had like 14,000 at birdville stadium.

Lubbock Monterrey won 5A baseball state in ‘96 (‘95 football season) after beating WH, Heights won 4A.

The following school year, we were 4A with Heights, that is 1000% correct.

Southwest was our biggest baseball rival through ‘96, but most of us grew up around/went to middle school with a shit-ton of Heights’ kids

Damnit man. I was going to go to the Abbey last night when I got back into town, but blew it off and went home instead. Bad decision, coach.

It would have been fun to break the "Hey guys I think Pops is in the Abbey" news live and then see how many minutes it would take for one or more of you degenerates to come strolling in.

It all started with a young blonde Tx St coed trying to play speedracer about 7 years ago or so. It has spawned two really long threads since. This is Pops' FW picture...

Born and raised in Ft.Worth. Graduated from Southwest when it was the Rebels, not the Raiders. Yes, I'm old....

Outside of Dallas commuters, I just don’t see there being enough demand in FW for more high end dwelling units until some solid professional jobs appear.

I think the infamous pep rally was 1990, is that right?

Yes, early 90's, but I was long gone by then. FYI, our fight song was Dixie. Oh how times have changed.

Fear, Typhoon, & I know this cat.

Wild Acre Brewing’s new west side restaurant and brewery is lining up a new chef, maybe chef David Hollister.

Hollister, former chef at the Dagwood’s restaurants and sandwich shops in Ridgmar and on Foch Street, has led the kitchen at several restaurants including Dallas’ Gas Monkey Grill.

Wild Acre Brewing is converting part of a former supermarket into a 3,000-square-foot brewhouse and restaurant. The supermarket, most recently a Kroger, was built in the 1970s for Skaggs Alpha Beta (later Albertsons).

More information will be coming next week from Wild Acre. 

 

Not sure what the word ‘maybe’ is supposed to be in the first sentence, that’s not right.

Who’s been to Olivella’s near the old Baker St? 

https://www.olivellas.com/fort-worth

 

Also, appears the Moon is re-open in the multi-failure Americado with a chicken joint inside. 

Quote

The chicken explosion is coming to West Berry Street.

Chef Josh Harmon’s new chicken stand inside The Moon Bar will serve Korean, Nashville or southern fried chicken plates and sandwiches.

The name: BirdieBop. It isn’t open yet, but watch for it in a couple of weeks inside the new Moon, now at 2000 W. Berry St.

The website jokingly promises “fine fried chicken and fried chicken accessories.”

We know Harmon from his Butler’s Cabinet sandwich shop in the Food Hall at Crockett Row, and from his former Milk & Honey Co. in Keller, which served a “Granny’s” fried chicken.

But he’s kicked around several Dallas kitchens: Savor, FT33, Driftwood, Junction Craft Kitchen and lately, redoing the menus for the restaurants in the Belmont Hotel.

According to Escape Hatch Dallas, Harmon recently taped an episode of “Restaurant Rivals” for the Food Network.

At BirdieBop, he’ll have help from Adrian Hulet of the FrankenKitchen pop-ups.

The menu online offers a “Closed On Sunday” fried chicken sandwich, a reference to Chick-fil-A.

He’ll also serve Korean sticky wings, a Nashville hot sandwich, double-garlic wings and side dishes like “mac-and-kimchi-eese” and pimiento cheese chicken biscuits.

The counter is inside The Moon Bar, a former TCU-area handout that has reopened at 2000 W. Berry St., the former Americado location.

The bar is open evenings now. BirdieBop wll open for lunch and dinner; birdiebop.com.
