You Can't Beat Yucatan Taco Stand's Happy Hour

While researching for a story about margaritas for a local magazine, I stopped by Yucatan Taco Stand on Magnolia Ave. Little did I know their tacos are $2 from 2-4 p.m., and their house margaritas are $4. I walked away with a tempura fish taco and a grilled vegetable taco topped with their cojita cheese and fresh cilantro, and a margarita. The total bill was $8.

"You can't beat that," said the cashier.

Nope, you can't.

Muddled jalapeño and cucumber, Republic Plata tequila, 
fresh lime juice and simple syrup served on the rocks.  

If you're wanting a custom margarita, don't be afraid to ask. They have 103 different tequilas to choose from, and ingredients like cucumber, jalapeño, coconut, cinnamon, mint and more to create your perfect margarita.

FW's Poserkids’ Camp with Mister Mateo: The Last Hurrah?

By Jocelyn Tatum

“Hey Jet, do you remember going to that kids’ yoga class outside on the river by Press Café?”
(His eyes light up)
“Oh yea!”
“Did you like it?”
“I did!”
“What did you like about it?”
“Ohhhhh, the list is so long it could take me all day.”
My 5-year-old leans back in his chair over a mommy-son lunch date and crosses his arms as if it may actually take him all day.
I had found out that “Mister Mateo” (Mateo Marquez) is hosting his last summer camp next week and still has a few spots left. I was feeling my son out to see if he would be interested.
“I liked it when we played crack the egg.”

(He is now smiling ear to ear remembering this one). 
He’s referring to when Mister Mateo had the children curl up in a ball with eyes closed. He went over to tap them when it was time to crack, which was timely for Easter weekend. Then each child opened their eyes to a surprise egg with a piece of candy inside. 
“I also liked the peanut butter-and-jelly pose and that he did all of t…

Spring Break Series: Open Trail Rides in the North Texas Wild

It's been a while. I've missed you all. 

Since this blog started five years ago to tell you about new and adventurous things to do in and around Fort Worth, I am here to help you with some ideas in the wild outdoors of the DFW backcountry just in time for planning your Spring Break. 

You don't have to travel far and empty your bank account to have an exhilarating time this Spring Break. So I will do a little series on this blog of some great ideas. And be looking for my march issue cover story in Fort Worth, TX magazine that will have you exploring areas you never thought existed in our hometown. You just thought you had to go to Utah or Colorado to enjoy the great outdoors. And don't forget to click the links I've embedded into this post for more information. 

Chisholm Trail Rides are the only OPEN trail riding experience in North Texas. Do you realize how happy this makes this thrill seeker?!? This is not your average trail ride where the horses walk at a snail'…

FW Children Plan Fundraiser for Hurricane Harvey Evacuees

UPDATE: In just a few hours the children not only raised $2,000 in money and gift cards for evacuees temporarily (or permanently) relocated in Fort Worth and Dallas, but also received two suburbans full of unused clothing, socks and underwear, diapers, wipes, baby bottles, formula, toys, pet treats and pet toys. We traded the donations for homemade bread and muffins, breakfast tacos, lemonade and fresh hot coffee. The community came together for this one. A special thanks to everyone who supported these children's efforts to help other children. Be looking for a Part II soon as more people come to DFW from the Texas Coast with more needs!
...  I watched my parents go through this when Katrina hit their home in New Orleans. They were displaced for nearly six months until they decided to never go back. Most of their friends never returned either. It took them 11 years to sell their home down there, having to pay two mortgages, because people didn't want to experience Katrina eve…
