Dallas-Fort Worth is the commercial and financial capital of Texas. It is not the biggest city. That honor goes to Houston. It is not the state captal, Austin is. But Dallas is the hub of things in Texas. It has a bustling downtown, with tall glass buildings and sprawl to as far as you can see. Neighboring Fort Worth and Dallas are now relatively inseperable, as the metropolis connects the two cities 40 miles apart. Many people know Dallas from the TV series with the same name, and Southfork Ranch is a dog-friendly destination in the area. Dallas is dog-friendly, the city has officially sanctioned dogs at patio restaurants in town and there are many places to stay and visit with Fido in tow.
Tumbleweed’s Sports Bar, located at the intersection of Blue Mound Road and NE Loop 820, behind Majestic Liquor, is the only entirely dog-friendly sports bar in Fort Worth. The spacious facility includes a large barroom with televisions on every wall, poolroom with six pool tables, an outdoor patio, and a backyard for the pooches.
Leashes are required inside the building, but the backyard is free reign, says owner Cat McFarland, who’s two Great Danes, Boomer and Sasha, spend their nights and weekends cozying up to the locals and catching a breeze on Tumbleweed’s patio.
“I am a dog-lover, but I’m also an extremely busy mother and entrepreneur,” McFarland says. “I just hated the thought of leaving them alone all the time. So, I did the next best thing. I created a fun environment where my dogs could be happy and where other dog lovers could come too.”
Tumbleweed’s Sports Bar first opened its doors in November 2001. Since, then it has been a staple of the Cowtown sports scene.
