OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. FLEA STYLE COMES WEST WHEN YOU'RE IN A PICKLE T he former Mopac Event Center space between University Boulevard and the railroad tracks at 1615 Rogers Road has been reimagined once again. Courtside Kitchen opens in October with dining, games, and the growing sport of pickleball. You can get your game on in the biggest of ways, with seven outdoor and two covered courts in a facility comprised of 7,500 square feet of indoor space, and 23,500 square feet outside for dining and entertainment. Having just completed its first season this past spring, the Fort Worth Pickleball league boasts more than 200 members. Little- known fact: Scott Moore, who is the six-time triple crown winner and the number-one senior male pickleball player in the world, grew up in Fort Worth. He's a member of Team Paddletek; on the circuit, they just call him The Beast. The food and drinks at Courtside Kitchen are orchestrated by a familiar face, chef Christian Lehrmann (Tinie's Mexican Cuisine, The Porch, CBD Provisions at The Joule hotel), with everything from poke bowls to flat-iron chimichurri steak and fries and Nashville-style hot chicken sandwiches, as well as craft cocktails, a large selection of draft and local beers, and extensive wine and tequila lists. Make your reservations pronto. Courtside Kitchen, 1615 Rogers Road, Fort Worth, Courtney Dabney N ext month, Mule Alley in the Fort Worth Stockyards welcomes Flea Style. The Dallas- based retail emporium, founded by former lifestyle editor Brittany Cobb, offers vintage and handmade Western-inspired goods. Flea Style first arrived in Fort Worth via the Wide Brim concept store inside Hotel Drover, giving guests access to the brand's effortless boho-Western collections. The stores' success inspired Cobb to bring a full-sized Flea Style to Fort Worth. The 3,400-square-foot location, between Lucchese Bootmaker and Cowtown Winery, will house local goods, artisan clothing, jewelry, home decor, and the company's largest hat bar, where shoppers can customize hats or choose from the private Stetson collection (be sure to try the custom Brittany). Flea Style's restaurant, Heirloom Haul, will have a mini location inside the store — try the famous frosé or one of the lavender or rose lattes. Flea Style, 128 E. Exchange Ave., Fort Worth, Fernanda Aguero Flea Style opens in Mule Alley. I f you're a fan of intricately blown glass and want to see for yourself how such works are created, there's no need to fly to Murano or the Pacific Northwest. Simply head to the Fort's Near Southside neighborhood and look for the vintage gas station at 1013 West Magnolia Avenue that's home to SiNaCa Studios School of Glass and Gallery. The nonprofit was founded by five glass artists in 2007 to provide community outreach programs and instruction — to light a fire (pun intended) of curiosity for the art and science of glass. Thirty thousand visitors later, SiNaCa celebrates its 15th anniversary with a series of exhibitions. This month, they collaborate with Gallery 440 to spotlight the works of Florida glass artist D u n c a n M c C l e l l a n — voluptuous shapes with delicately etched images (September 9 – October 8).
