Fort Worth's The Usual Is Hardly Typical

usualsmall.jpgNBC DFW stops by The Usual over in Fort Worth, which has been building a reputation for classic, classy cocktails in the city since it opened nearly two years ago. The notably smoke-free, Prohibition-styled bar's owner Brad Hensarling says cocktailing is an American tradition: "It was one of the first things the world ever viewed as us as doing really well, our first great contribution other than democracy." He also says he doesn't think retro cocktails are merely a trend: at The Usual, "what we do is versatile and not just a flash in the pan say like the martini bars were." [NBC DFW]
