It was May 3-6, with music, carnival rides, games, festival food, special attraction shows, art market, dance performances, and “BEST OF THE FEST” food contest where we judged all the creative fair food.

When I was a boy, I remember riding in the backseat and driving by Angelo’s BBQ in Fort Worth, Texas. You could smell BBQ two blocks up the road before even getting there. That was over forty-five years ago, back when the DFW area had only a few barbeque joints. The usual order was limited to ribs, brisket, or chopped beef. There wasn’t nearly as much selection of BBQ as we have today.
Boy… have times changed. Change is good, and delicious. The BBQ market has gone crazy with all kinds of creative dishes and innovative ideas. We have old ol’ fashion BBQ, craft BBQ and some BBQ that I’m not even sure how to classify it. Pitmasters and chefs will stop at nothing to create mouth-watering deliciousness to send our foodie senses into overdrive. Everyone is competing for the next incredible dish and smoking up Texas with the best BBQ chow downs.
The competitiveness for the best barbeque has resulted in techniques that perfectly yield insanely good flavors on the finest meats. Foodies around the world have fallen in LOVE with Texas BBQ time after time. Chefs are replicating and doing it up Texas style. The bigger the better, just like everything in Texas. The best restaurants have chef driven menus, farm fresh house prepared sauces, and create bold BBQ flavors. Trust me, I’ll show you the best of the best places to chow down on barbecue.
Good day drinking buddies and coffee connoisseurs,
Drink With Treyhas visited a lot of coffee houses, and I’ve visited a lot of bars… but I haven’t visited a coffeehouse-bar combination. That is exactly what Ampersand is. It’s a coffeehouse by day, and transforms into a bar club in the night. It is literally business up front, party in the back.
Ampersand has locations in Dallas and Fort Worth to enjoy. Ampersand Fort Worthis located just off of the booming West 7th area. The have all kinds of coffee options from air roasted coffee, craft coffee, and coffee cocktails. The options are fresh, creative, and deliciously perfect. Cocktail infused coffee drinks are simply a win.
The building has a contemporary modern style. It’s clean, beautiful, and complete with an outdoor patio. There is plenty space for chatting with friends, studying or grabbing a quick coffee-moment with yourself. The overall setup is so clever. I’ve never seen anything like it. Just imagine a nice sunny morning, strolling down to Ampersand and having a nice cup of coffee on the porch. You can smell the fresh air already!
Ampersandoffers so many items that the other local coffee shops don’t. This includes nitrogen infused cold brew (on tap), cold brew frappes, and smoothies. They air roast their very own coffee beans. The Lavender Vanilla latte and the Vietnamese iced coffee have definitely been getting some traction here in the last couple of months. Perfect drinks for this lovely weather we have been having lately.
I definitely want to highlight that they have a coffee infused cocktail menu as well. I bet you’re interested now! You got to head over there ASAP and get one of these drinks.
If you choose to visit in the evening… Oh boy, get ready to have a great time. Ampersand Fort Worthis fully complete with incredible music, great cocktails and a party atmosphere. The bartenders are awesome and the customer service is superb. Be sure and say hello to ROCK STAR Corey Mobley if he’s on tap!
Ampersandis Fort Worth’s freshest stop to fuel your caffeine need and have a refreshing cocktail beverage. Head over there today and tell’em Trey sent ya!
