Super Late Super Bowl List

Sources tell me there’s a “Big Game” coming up this Sunday. I don’t know, I’m not really into sports. It’s just so gosh darned American: exercising our right to watch America’s game on a big screen TV while drinking American beers and eating American food. In fact, of the teams playing is the Patriots, for goodness’ […]

FEAST Portland Here I Come

It’s time to FEAST! Starting Thursday, I’ll be heading to FEAST Portland. What is it? It’s like the New York Food & Wine Festival of Portland. So, like the more hippie version, I suppose. I’ve been dying to go and this is my first time, but I’m more excited to share my virgin trip to […]

#SPONSORED // Beer, Brats & Burbs: Experience Oktoberfest in Historic Downtown McKinney

If you’ve never been to Oktoberfest in Downtown McKinney, this should probably be the year you go. There’s so much going on over the three-day festival, with so many opportunities to eat, drink and be merry inside those 14 blocks of beer garden.

Sprezza Saturday Night

Sprezza sits in an unassuming house on Maple in Oaklawn. Inside, a clean, light and bright interior is bustling, mostly because it’s packed with people who are excited for what they’re about to eat. And they should be. Because the man who brought us Nonna and Carbone’s is about to bring them platefuls of delicious pasta […]

Now Open: Matchbox is Heating up Preston Hollow Village

Media dinners are always fun. Flowing drinks, free food and a chance to catch up with food-centric friends who don’t care how many photos you take before you eat something. But what can be much better than a media dinner, is when a restaurant decides to do something different with their soft opening. Matchbox decided to […]

A First Look at Lakewood Smokehouse #Comped

I’m just going to start by saying it would take a lot to make me forget about Ali Baba. That’s the Mediterranean-flavored deliciousness that used to reside at the end of my street in Lakewood. But I have to admit the folks who also own Three Stacks BBQ in Frisco have done a pretty sweet redecorating […]

foodbitch featured on DFW Style Daily!

Because I love DFW Style Daily and because they are all a hundred times more stylish than I am, I will let them get away with the use of the word “foodie” to describe me. We’ll just say it was all about that S-E-O and leave it at that, K? I was flattered and honored […]
