For our end of year pizza binge we wanted to try out some of the better pizza in town, but with one hitch– not Neapolitan style. We have saw an onslaught of pizza being brought to the forefront and most of the new spots in Dallas are of the Neapolitan variety. There will be even more of this style of pizza coming, and that is fantastic. We love this, but what are some of the best non-Neapolitan pizzas in the Dallas area? Glad you asked.
Here is a list of a few of our favorites in no particular order. Peruse our list and offer your favorite seven. And for the best Neapolitan-style pizza? Stay tuned, we are dining out way through that scene as we write. Continue reading

If you need a keg of beer in Dallas for your home or party, who would you most likely turn to? Now lets say you want a really cool keg of beer, does that change anything? It shouldn’t. For over 50 years Parkit-Market has been the go-to keg station in Dallas.
Listing over 550 varieties on his web site Tony Todora is rightly excited when he discusses the current state of beer in Dallas, Texas.
“We do have a special now that includes everything you need for $84.95 if you want Coors, PBR, Bud Select and a few other brands, but our customers are becoming more sophisticated and we are seeing better beers being ordered,” said owner Todora.

Texas Big Beer is a relatively new brewery that most have not heard of in the DFW metroplex. It might be due to the limited amount of brews, seven on their website with one of those in planning and two awaiting label approval, or it may be due to the location being northwest of Houston in Buna, Texas. Their website reads like a home brewer that decided to start up a brewery, the wish of almost every home brewer out there. Nothing excites a home brewer more than the thought of starting a brewery and making beer that everyone loves to drink. I would imagine it would be similar to watching your child win the spelling bee or score the winning point. Continue reading
