Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Booze

Meanwhile, Back At The Bar…

Tough. Hairy. Not afraid to cut the nuts off a bull. Man, we really miss seeing our mom right now. But funny enough, those are also the traits of a typical Texas cowboy and there’s a legendary beverage that many call their favorite: Ranch Water. You know, the super-refreshing, delightfully strong mixture of tequila, Topo Chico and lime. Well, now […]

Now This Is Our Kind Of Easter Basket

Man, that photo brings back memories of Easter as a kid. Not because our parents were big drinkers, but because we grew up in West Texas they would hide decorated jalapeños in the yard for us to gather. Not only did we learn how to make great salsa instead of deviled eggs like all the other kids, but it also […]

Why So Dramatic? It’s Only Ice Cream.

This time of year, there’s a whole lotta screamin’ goin’ on. But usually, it’s because of things like haunted houses, pre-midterm jitters, and seeing Jamie Lee Curtis with really dry roots. Starting Sunday, however, you can yell for joy when Eye Scream Wasted debuts in the Design District. Described as a “post-apocalyptic pop art ice cream experience,” the museum-meets-bar experiment boasts […]

Fave Five: Holiday Boozing Edition

We haven’t done a Fave Five in a while because, well, clearly we’ve been drinking. But it’s ok, it’s all for work. As we head into the holiday season, we thought it would be great to show off some of our favorite boozy finds from the past couple of months. Cheers! Tom of Finland Wines Damn, we wish our grandmother […]

Bottoms Up! (And To The Front Of The Line!)

Want to send off September with a bang? And a slurp? And a teeny-tiny umbrella or two? Then drop everything and snag tickets to this Saturday night’s Ultimate Cocktail Experience at Klyde Warren Park. Your ticket gets you access to six unique travel-themed bars, including New Orleans, London, Casablanca, Havana, Hong Kong and Mexico City. That equates to 35 cocktails and […]

You Say Tomato, We Say Bloody Mary

Sunday wouldn’t be Sunday without at least one Bloody Mary. That’s just a cold hard fact. But what about a Sunday with many Bloody Marys? That’s what happens on May 21 when The Bloody Mary Festival comes to Dallas for three hours of deep red cocktail samples from some of our city’s best restaurants in a festive atmosphere. A live […]

Glass For Days

Gorgeous on the outside? You bet. But it’s definitely what’s on the inside that counts. We hold that sentiment for shirtless men in hammocks, but it goes double when it comes to our beloved booze. The latest to capture our heart (and liver), as well as a prominent space on our bar is the spectacular Glass Vodka. Now available in […]

The Genever Convention

We thought we knew everything there was to know about gin. Our blood consists of at least 8% gin, after all. But then we met for drinks with the CEO of Royal Dutch Distillers and he rocked our world. Not just with his lineup of Rutte gins, but the Rutte Old Simon Genever in particular. If you like gin, we’re pretty […]

Ah, Shoot!

Tequila Sheela isn’t just our favorite new name for a drag queen, it’s also our favorite new local booze. In a city known for its barbecue, tacos and abundance of mobile phone stores and banks, it’s about time Dallas gets recognized for its world-class tequila. That’s right, founded by Sheela Marshall and Natalie Merrick, Tequila Sheela is based in Dallas, […]

Dallas, Meet Your New Favorite Whiskey

Austin can’t have all the fun. That’s why we’re so excited that the capital city-based 9 Banded Whiskey (named after the number of bands on an armadillo) can now be procured in Dallas. Filtered through limestone spring water from the Texas Hill Country, the oak barrel-aged whiskeys offer a pleasing aroma and incredibly smooth flavor profile with just the right […]
