Some people like a cold beer or a mixed drink with dinner, but the regulars at Rack Daddy's prefer their dinner with a side of smooth baize. They send pool balls careening across tables' upholstered surfaces, facing off in games of pool and billiards. Xena Pizza, located next door, supplies Seattle-style slices layered with toppings such as Canadian bacon and spicy Italian sausage. Patrons can stay until 2:00 a.m., at which time all of the cue balls turn into pumpkins.
Aaron Watson is a Lone Star State country-music crooner who has released eight albums on his own independent label. After a college injury ended his budding baseball career, Watson traded in pop flies for the pop charts and began learning to play guitar, quickly composing his own country creations. His newest groove compilation, Deep in the Heart of Texas, is a live album featuring rip-roaring tracks such as "Love Makin' Song," "Heyday Tonight," and "Except for Jessie." Watson's down-home hits may provoke reckless boot stomping, spur spinning, hootin', and, in select cases, even hollerin'. Doctors advise audience members not to operate heavy machinery while under the influence of Watson's music.
A rotating roster of seasoned comedic pros and up-and-comers has graced the stages at Hyena's Comedy Nightclub's three locations.

Since not much in the rules-of-the-road canon is intentionally funny, Hyena's helps keep Texas drivers safely and legally behind the wheel with digital, state-approved, all-original tutorials written by comedians.
Nestled among the wooden corrals and brick façades of the historic Fort Worth Stockyards district, Cowtown Winery pairs meats and cheeses with red, white, semisweet, and dessert wines handcrafted by an in-house vintner. Amid shelves stocked with emerald rows of bottles, the winery’s tasting bar hosts daily samplings of premium wines such as the tart Silver Spur red and a pinot grigio with subtle aromas of apple, pear, and aged stetson hat. Live acoustic music on the weekends helps to inspire first-time winemakers as they consult with vintners to design custom labels and concoct up to 29 bottles of their own signature wine.
