So, since next week there will be a flock of people heading to the metroplex, I'm going to give ya'll a guide of things to do, places to eat, etc. for your time here. I'm only going to make a guide for Fort Worth, so if you are planning on not staying, or not making it this way, then might not want to read.
I know, TL,DR whateva Bars
There are a lot of great bars in the city. I'll give you a list of the most popular around town. 7th street
The Capital Image: http://capital-bar.com/images/img_3817.jpg width=500
Max's Wine Dive
My two favorite bars are The Capital and Reservoir, but all the others are great. BTW, Lucky Strike is a bowling alley, but it has a great bar. Downtown
Pete's Piano Bar
Frankie's Sports Bar
The Flying Saucer is in Sundance Square, and that is a great area to walk around. I've always been a fan of downtown.

The Basement Bar TCU Area
Honestly, TCU area doesn't have that many places in terms of bars. Restaurants 7th Street
There are a lot of places on 7th. You can walk around and you won't make a bad decision. They recently built up the area about 5-6 years ago, and it's been booming ever since. Downtown
The Capital Grille
Texas de Brazil

I never really make it to the Stockyards, so I'm not really sure what other places you can eat at. TCU Area
Fuzzy's Taco (Original on Berry)
-My favorite Mexican in town. Get the Tamales Oaxaquenos if you ever do go
Cat City Grill
Yucatan Taco Stand
*Joe T's does not have the best Tex-Mex in Fort Worth, don't even think it's close. You go for the atmosphere though. The patio is huge, and you can really get lost in there. Also, ONLY BRING CASH
. They don't accept any other payments other than cash.
**These are owned by Tim Love. He's appeared on Iron Chef and Top Chef on the Food Network.
***This is my go to Sunday spot. Get the migas, I can't describe how good they are. Others Places
Kinkaid's on Camp Bowie
-Really neat place, converted 50's grocery store into a burger joint.
-Two words, corn nuggets
-They fry pretty much everything
Melis Taco's on Vickery
-Seriously, the best street tacos I've had.
