But by the time the 1950s rolled around, they were disappearing from towns and cities around the state at an alarming rate. That's precisely why the Pioneer Texas Heritage Committee and the Tarrant County Historical Society decided to preserve the Log Cabin Village.

Now serving as a living museum, Log Cabin Village was once home to a handful of families. Its six log houses, all erected in the 1800s, have been moved from their original location in North Texas and situated atop a site right in Fort Worth. Another log cabin, a vintage schoolhouse, and a smokehouse have since been added to the village. Each building contains actual artifacts that give visitors a glimpse inside the way people lived in these homes, capturing a snapshot of Texan life long before Fort Worth was the bustling metropolis it is today.

Instead of catering to an exclusive community of seasoned yogis, Karmany strives to create an environment where both seasoned yoga practitioners and newbies alike feel comfortable coming to practice.

That means you don't have to have your Crow Pose mastered (or even know what it is) in order to take a class at Karmany Yoga. Its affordable classes promise something for everyone. If you're newer to yoga, check out a Soft Flow class for a slower pace. If you want to really challenge your body, opt for one of the athletic Power Flow classes instead. Either way, you're welcome to move at your own pace and enjoy a practice that works best for your body.

Do Breakfast at Yogi’s Deli and Grill Any Day http://villasofoakhillblog.com/2016/04/07/do-breakfast-at-yogis-deli-and-grill-any-day/ Thu, 07 Apr 2016 18:00:54 +0000 http://villasofoakhillblog.com/?p=711 Named for owner Yogi Florsheim, Yogi's Deli and Grill has been keeping Fort Worth diners in classic breakfast grub since June of 1997. Over its nearly two decades in business, Yogi's has earned a reputation as a welcoming spot, perhaps due to the vintage records and TCU jerseys on the walls (Yogi is a big TCU fan).

Perhaps the most popular time to visit Yogi's is Sunday morning, but you can come by any day of the week for breakfast or lunch. You don't have to choose between sweet and savory because Yogi's offers many options in both categories. Satisfy your sweet tooth with three slices of sourdough French toast loaded with strawberries and bananas or a pair of multigrain pancakes flecked with chocolate chips. On the savory side of the menu, there are options such as omelets and Benedicts, which you can get with some of the popular home fries on the side.

The festival kicks off before the end of the month with a special dinner series at Central Market—hosted by some of the city's best chefs—on March 9 and March 23. But the real festivities begin on March 31 when the Barbecue Showdown pits Texas's pitmasters against each other. On April 1 "Taste The New Texas" is highlighted at the main festival—local chefs converge with craft beer brewers, wine makers, and liquor distillers for an all-encompassing culinary event, followed by dessert, then brunch the following morning. A Burgers and Brews event and family picnic on Panther Island wrap up the schedule of fest events.
