If the Aug. 28 "Go" section hadn’t arrived with my Star-Telegram, I would have thought it belonged to the Dallas paper.
Three out of five movie reviews were for movies that are Dallas exclusives. That means taking a trip to Dallas or not seeing them because too often they won’t be shown in Fort Worth. (It is amazing that a city of 750,000 doesn’t have a movie theater that shows independent/art films, but that is another issue.)
All three restaurant reviews were for Dallas restaurants. Even Bud Kennedy’s column highlighted openings for three new Dallas restaurants. Why is this?
I’m not suggesting that you review only Fort Worth venues. We have gone to many restaurants/movies/festivals/shows in Dallas and the Mid-Cities and enjoy hearing about what other cities have to offer.
Your seeming neglect of hometown products, however, is disappointing. I imagine many in the Fort Worth business community are disappointed as well.
