Editor’s note: A lot has happened this week, so here’s your chance to catch up. Read on for the hottest titles of the week.
1. Fort Worth’s new favorite sport is following the stars of Yellowstone spin off 1883. Since the filming of Yellowstone spin off 1883 began in the Fort Worth area in late August, local fans got into a modern shoot-’em-up game: snap photos of celebrities and post them to social media. Catching members of the A-list cast — which includes Sam Elliott, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill and Billy Bob Thornton — at local hotspots has been a fun chase (without any stalking arrests).
2. Where to drink in Fort Worth right now: 5 best new bars for September. A new slew of bars have flocked to Fort Worth and the surrounding area, from Parker County to the Trophy Club and hotspots in between. Bigger seems to be better with this group, as most of these new establishments have multiple seats and lounges as well as huge patios and, in some cases, live music. Here are five new local bars to visit right now.
3. Prost at the biggest Oktoberfest 2021 festivities in Dallas-Fort Worth. If you’ve been to Munich, you know the name Oktoberfest is misleading: this annual beer festival begins at the end of September. Fort Worth is rich with German heritage, so it’s your duty to fully participate in Oktoberfest, raise a glass and be proud of the event. Here is a list of the biggest Oktoberfests in the city.
4. The $400 billion “city of the future” could land in the Lone Star State. The Lone Star State is among several locations in the United States under consideration as the site of Telosa, a brand new city envisioned as one day home to 5 million people and a model of sustainability and resilience. Telosa developers estimate the city built from scratch would cost more than $400 billion to complete over a 40-year period.
5. The number of North Texas “super commuters” has increased by almost 50%. Long commutes are nothing new in North Texas, but the number of so-called “super commuters” — those who travel at least 90 minutes to get to work and another 90 minutes or more to get home — grew 49% in the region from 2010 to 2019. That’s according to a new analysis by Apartment List of US Census Bureau data.
