Burgers seared over an open flame, then doused in house-made pepper sauce. Po boys constructed from white hoagies and neatly sliced turkey and ham. These handheld meals characterize the offerings at Uncle Bo's Hamburgers & Deli, where both cold and hot sandwiches stack all-natural ingredients between chewy bread.
A full one-third pound of meat beefs up each grilled burger, served with fries and available with toppings such as bacon, blue cheese, and chili. Deli sandwiches range from hearty reubens on rye to lighter turkey wraps with sprouts and tomatoes, as well as offerings that set sail on wheat bread or tucked inside of croissants. House-made soups warm bellies to prevent locals from walking around with hot potatoes in their sweatshirts' front pockets, although the eatery also slings spuds loaded with bacon, cheeses, and broccoli.
Fort Worth Lighting is a commodious, fully appointed showroom brimming with indoor and outdoor lighting features and adornment for under-illuminated abodes. Tear new light holes into the fabric of the universe with ceiling lights, or trade in faded paper-doll garlands for new embellishments such as mirrors, clocks, and candle holders. An antique brass mini chandelier ($68.20) or chrome desk lamp ($55) dispel dreary indoor clouds, or commence home festoonification with an Orleans blackened gold and silver mirror ($63.80).
After cans of soda and bottles of beer pass their expiration date, they don't go to the landfill. Thanks to the crew at Silver Creek Materials, the liquids inside are instead used to prepare nutrient-rich compost, which will nourish and sustain local gardens, lawns, and flowerbeds. Leaving nothing to waste, the crew recycles all the glass, metal, and plastic packaging.
Though making compost is only a small part of Silver Creek Materials' business, the aversion to waste and commitment to the environment reflects the company's focus on eco-friendly operations. When mining sands and soils, the staff works carefully to prevent adverse effects on the land or water, winning a Texas Environmental Excellence Award in 1997. The company also recycles organic materials such as trees, grass clippings, and fussy children's bread crusts.
Tucked away within Madtosh Crafts lies a treasure trove of crafting supplies. Even though the shop specializes in needle art and quilting, its bounty spans the spectrum of the crafting arts, ranging from designer patterns and books about knitting, crocheting, hand spinning, and embroidery to fabrics for sewing, appliqué, and sashiko. Fabrics from Anthology and Free Spirit and yarns from Knit Collage and The Fibre Company arm DIYers for the shop's workshops and events. These hands-on sessions include Knit in Public, which encourages artists to work on individual projects among friends, and the Color Theory workshop, a class that helps students choose ideal hues for their artwork or forged mood rings.
It’s a good thing James Bryant’s parents didn’t pay him more allowance. At 10, he found his $10 weekly payday unacceptable, so he started knocking on neighbors’ doors to see if they’d like him to mow their lawns. The business grew as he did, and, by the time he finished high school, he felt certain that landscaping was his true passion. Since officially founding Bryant Lawn and Sprinkler in 1995, James has continued to find fulfillment in creating natural works of art out of previously lackluster yards and gardens. He and his team do this by planting flowers, mulching gardens and installing eco-conscious sprinkler systems. They also design yard lighting so that, at night, freshly pruned shrubs stand out and moths can use shadow puppets to tell their brief life stories.
