1. Costumes and props from Yellowstone prequel 1883 go on view at Fort Worth museum. Fort Worth's National Cowgirl Museum & Hall of Fame is taking visitors inside the world of 1883, the Paramount+ series that's become the buzziest show on earth. The new exhibition "1883: The Journey West" opened at the Cultural District museum on  February 11 and runs through March 20. It features costumes, props, and photography from the Yellowstone prequel, which was filmed in and around Fort Worth last year.

2. New kind of crispy pizza from Northeast is slinging north of Fort Worth. There's a new kind of pizza in Dallas-Fort Worth, with New England roots. It's a unique, niche-style of pizza popular in a specific region in Massachusetts, and it's coming to us via Mission Pizza, a pop-up that resides every weekend in Denton, at Herf's Denton County Taphouse at Rayzor Ranch, in the Winco plaza.

3. Fort Worth's Casa Mañana in conflict with 3 unions over Matilda musical. A longtime Fort Worth theater is embroiled in a union dustup, with not one but three unions. Casa Mañana Theatre was already in the hot seat for violating its contract with the local chapter of the American Federation of Musicians, for using pre-recorded music for Matilda: the Musical. Another change caused the theater to be in violation with Actors' Equity Association and the Stage Directors and Choreographers Society, as well.

Fort Worth chef Tim Love is opening a new venue in the Stockyards district that will combine live music, restaurant, and private event space. Called Tannahill's Tavern & Music Hall, it'll open in the heart of Fort Worth’s Stockyards in the historic Horse and Mule Barns of the Mule Alley redevelopment.
