Try a new Cocktail at Ferre Restaurant in Fort Worth

Sip on a cool cocktail at Ferre Restaurant in Fort Worth.

We all usually enjoy the prospect of trying something new. How could we not? When you are out and about, perusing various types of dining in Fort Worth, you may be drawn in one direction or another. Though, there may be no more distinct a place to get a fun and crafty drink than at Ferre Restaurant. Check out their cocktail menu and see if you agree.

But Ferre is more than just drinks. In fact Ferre won the Critic’s Choice Award for Best Chef Sean Alvarez in 2010 from the Fort Worth Weekly. They offer a contemporary Italian-Tuscan menu and the atmosphere is both cutting edge and warm, highfalutin and unpretentious.

This knowledge of things some others just don’t know is reflected in the top-shelf service which is afforded the customers who come through. If the wait staff hasn’t told you something off the cuff that you didn’t already know, then chances are you eat out at Ferre too often!

At the end of the day the dining in a place like Ferre is all about the experience; people keep replaying the experience again and again so they must be doing something right! Try an unusual cocktail at Ferre Restaurant Fort Worth.

How to Optimize the Space in Your Walk-In Closet

How to Optimize the Space in Your Walk-in Closet

Check out these easy ways to organize your walk-in closet.

Are your closets overflowing with clothes? Have you been unable to navigate through the walk-in closet at your apartment in Fort Worth? If your closets are in disarray, note a few of these handy tips on organizing and optimizing the storage space in a walk-in closet.

First, evaluate how much space you have and what clutter needs to be tossed.  Consider whether or not some of your friends in the area might be interested in some of your old DVDs or books in your closet.  Donate the remainder to local charities such as Goodwill or the Salvation Army.

Determine placement of the remaining space, after you have removed the clutter. Divide your walk-in closet into zones so that accessories and clothing are easy to grab.  Hang dresses with similar length and the same goes for blouses and shirts.  Instead of looking for items in the back of your closet, store them in clear storage bins so you know exactly what is stored.

Remove all of your shoes from the floor and place them in a shoe rack, which you should hang from the back of your door.  Smaller closet items like scarves, belts and even your pursues can hang from closet hooks.

Staying organized will make life more pleasant, so whip your apartment in Fort Worth into shape with a few of these organization tips.
