Smashburger Opens in Uptown!

Who wants to cook this close to the holidays when you’re running around trying to finish last-minute errands, right?  If you’re in the Dallas/Uptown area, stop by Smashburger for lunch or dinner and let me know how it is – it’s their grand opening!  I’d go myself, but I’m participating in the Jingle Bell Run. Hmmm, [...]

Modern Dallas Review – Neo Pizzeria

Hey guys, sorry for the delay.  The article published on Friday the 6th, but I was out of town on vacay and couldn’t pop into my posts to update.  My latest article for Modern Dallas was on Neo Pizzeria in Victory Park here in Dallas.  I know the architect that designed the space and it [...]

dallas main street garden

Was out and about this past weekend at the Farmers Market with Ben and David, and we decided to be urban and find a place downtown to grab brunch ($14 buffet brunch at Iron Cactus is yum)! Afterward we meandered over to the new main street garden, which is flanked by one of my favorite [...]

A Review: The Porch, Dallas, TX

In tinkering around the city this weekend (more antique shops for cake pedestals and other things I can’t live without), I found myself hungry while over in the Knox/Henderson area. I’d just come out of a store, glanced across the street, and there was The Porch.  I’d heard a lot about this place, that is [...]

My antique store finds this past weekend.

So, in addition to the chair I found, I continued in my search of vintage cake plates and pedestals. Another customer at a thrift shop suggested Lula B’s on lower Greenville.  So that was my next stop, where I found this little jewel.  It’s a cute ‘lil wood pedestal bowl with lid, made of Myrtle [...]

Statler Hilton memorabilia?

Last weekend I went poking around a few of our great antique (read: mostly mid-century modern, 70′s eclectic) stores, and drug my friend Shawn along.  I was looking for vintage cake stands of any form, pewter, depression glass, vaseline glass, porcelain…just poking around to see what I could see. I was just about done making [...]

Wolfgang Puck’s Five Sixty

This past Thurs I attended a marketing/pr reception, & lucky for me, drinks & apps took place atop Reunion Tower in WP’s Five Sixty. I had their pear martini, which was tasty, but very strong. They passed mini kobe beef sliders w/ micro greens & house made pickles, steamed dumplings in Chinese soup spoons, & [...]
