Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Food & Drink

Sleeping Around San Diego

Chances are you wish you were cold right now. Not nips-poking-through-your-shirt cold, but comfortably cool. We know we are, which is why we’re dreaming of the San Diego area 24/7. Anywhere but Dallas, really. We just got back from a quick weekend to SoCal and darn if patio heaters at night in August aren’t something we could get really used […]

Let’s Get Soaking Wet

We interrupt our regularly scheduled Brunch of the Week feature to bring you this important Pride Week update: The weather forecast calls for a hot one on Saturday, so what better way to cool off than with a bunch of other mostly naked folks? That’s exactly what to expect at the special Pride Edition of SUNLIFE, a daytime dance and […]

Holiday, Turkey

Belly (dance) up to the bar, everyone! Travel during the holidays can be stressful, but not if you’re headed to Turkey—by way of Plano. That’s where we discovered one of the best (and most outrageously fun) Mediterranean restaurants in the metro area. Don’t let the strip-center facade fool you because once you’re through the main dining room of Turkish Cafe, it’s like […]

If You Can’t Stand The Heat, Get In These Kitchens

We love to cook. Not as much as we love to eat out, of course. However, when the mood strikes us we can be pretty damned creative sporting nothing but an apron, a can of Crisco and a strategically placed kitchen utensil or two. (Oh, wait, wrong room in our house.) Yet as much as we enjoy having friends over […]

Have The Time Of Your Lime

Salt or no salt? Lime or mango? Frozen or on the rocks? One or several dozen? We all like our margaritas a certain way and you’ll surely find your favorite style this Sunday at the 8th annual Dallas Margarita Meltdown. Purchase a sampling card for $40 and get a one-ounce pour of more than 30 different margaritas. Upgrade to VIP for […]

Down To Fork This Hump Day?

Dallas has more than its fair share of food events. And we go to so many, we’re shocked we ever wake up hungry. Wednesday night, one of our favorite eat-and-drink affairs returns with an exciting twist. Dallas Observer’s Iron Fork 2018 for the first time ever features two female chefs battling it out on stage while the rest of us mingle […]

Brunch Of The Week: Let’s Get Sticky!

We get invited to try a lot of places for brunch. Well, every meal imaginable, really. But we always say the truest testament to a restaurant’s appeal is when we return on our own when somebody else isn’t footing the bill. And that’s exactly what’s happened when DC-based Matchbox American Kitchen + Spirit debuted its first Texas restaurant in the […]

A Toast To Restaurant Week

If you listen carefully, you can hear it: the sound of a million people’s stomachs growling collectively. DFW Restaurant Week officially kicks off August 7 (with previews starting August 4) and more than 130 eating establishments from Al Biernat’s to Zatar will be participating this 20th anniversary year. You can enjoy multi-course meals starting at $20 during lunch or $39 to $49 […]

It’s 4/20. Got The Munchies?

Happy April 20, everyone! Today’s a day when many people will be having some food cravings for some reason or another. And we’re here to tempt you with the promise of great food–you’ll just have to wait until next Wednesday. That’s when the annual Dining Out in Dallas: Battle of the Chefs competition kicks off at the Frontiers of Flight Museum. It’s […]

When They Go Low, We Go Lowest

Kick off April in the most unfoolish way possible. Whether you want to try your hand at shucking oysters at Rapscallion, pressing your own t-shirt at Bullzerk or learning how to infuse booze at The Libertine Bar, Experience Lowest Greenville might just be the coolest way to get to know the East Dallas entertainment district better than ever before. A full day […]
