Everybody’s working for the weekend


Sushi Axiom: 4625 Donnelly Ave. #101

The modern and upscale Sushi Axiom is an ideal place for a sushi lover to spend a Friday night. Whether stopping in for dinner or planning to spend an evening of chatting and martini sipping, the restaurant is almost guaranteed to please. Although the drink list is sure to satisfy, the sushi rolls are enough to please anyone just looking to appease the appetite. But if you’re searching for a place to get rowdy or take saki bombs while banging on the tables, take note – that kind of behavior is frowned upon at Axiom. While you’re there, make sure you try the cherry blossom roll.

Papparotti’s Wine Room: 6100 Camp Bowie Blvd., Suite 22

One of Fort Worth’s hidden gems is Papparotti’s Wine Room on Camp Bowie Boulevard. Papparotti’s is owned by a husband and wife whose wine suggestions will never disappoint you. As you sip your wine or sample one of their appetizer trays, you can listen to the smooth sounds of the in-house jazz musician. The interior decor is sophisticated, with dark red walls that display modern art for sale. This quaint, but classy wine room is a great place to go for afternoon drinks whether you are on a date or with a close group of friends.

Fort Woof Dog Park: Gateway Park

Whether you have a dog or borrow one from a friend, Fort Woof is the perfect place to spend a Sunday morning, for dogs and owners alike. Sunny skies are predicted for the weekend, so let the pooch off its leash to run around and have some fenced-in fun. Specific rules make the dog park safe for dogs of all sizes. There are wide open spaces, obstacle courses for pets and benches to sit on and observe the madness that is inevitable when dogs are let loose. An added benefit: Dogs tend to wear themselves out at the park, so they’re ready for a nap when they get home.
