Event Alert: On Wednesdays We Watch “Mean Girls”

WHATEVER I’M GETTING CHEESE FRIES. So, Sundown at Granada has started doing these summer rooftop movies, during which they offer half priced whiskey.

Cheers for a Cause: The Ultimate Cocktail Experience at Klyde Warren Park Nov. 5

It’s time again for the Ultimate Cocktail Experience. Though the name itself sounds a bit generic, it’s quite a badass event. First of all, there’s a worthy cause: Trigger’s Toys, a charity that serves children and families of children who require extended medical assistance in DFW. They give these kids care packages and toys, and they provide events and financial assistance to […]

Black Ship Little Katana Docks at the Omni Downtown

Sushi is my jam. I have my favorites, as we all do, but I’m always looking for new sushi bars to sidle up to. When I was invited to a media tasting at Black Ship Little Katana, a sister restaurant to Katana and Little Katana (inside the Galleria and over on Travis in Uptown, respectively), […]

Park & Palate in Pictures by @foodbitch, via the @Dallas_Observer Food & Drink Blog

It might just be time for a little bit of detox. It’s Fair season, which means simply living within a three-mile radius of Fair Park might tick my cholesterol up a few points. I don’t even have to partake. My point? I’ve been indulging in quite a few delicious items of late, the most recent being […]

Salud! A Lunazul Tequila dinner at el Bolero

Last night, the folks at Apheleia Restaurant Group (who also bring us the delicious and beautiful Oak and Pakpao) invited me to a Lunazul Tequila tequila dinner at el Bolero — three courses paired el Bolero’s Mexican goodness. I don’t always sip liquor, but when I do, it’s usually tequila, so I eagerly agreed to attend said dinner. Salud! […]

#TACOLANDIA is coming, and the presale starts today!
