Brunch Me: Primebar

by Steven Doyle

Born on the streets of Chicago, Primebar is situated on Cedar Springs next to the empty dwell of the Place At Perry’s, which has since moved on to larger digs just blocks away. The restaurant and bar enjoys costume changes throughout each day, making full use of the facility as a lunch haunt for nearby office traffic, happy hour for the tired and aimless, a dinner landing for the mixed neighborhood that meets gayborhood, and a rousing nightlife that entertains crowds well into the night, and even later on weekends.

Primebar is actually self-titled a sports bar with several trappings that would lead you to believe this is true, such as the many flat-screens tossed about out the building. Then there are the 40 taps. The large number of taps doesn’t necessarily make you a sports bar, look at the folks at Union Bear if that is your determination. Not a screen in sight, but a plethora of beers tapped daily.   Continue reading

Where to Watch the Cotton Bowl Classic in Dallas

by Steven Doyle

The Cotton Bowl Classic is a legendary game in these parts starting in 1937 when the TCU Horned Frogs stomped the Golden Eagle’s of Marquette 16-6. This was the beginning of a sweet Texas tradition.

This week’s burger quest took us to east Dallas to visit Goodfriend Beer Garden & Burger House which is next door to Good 2 Go Taco on Peavy Road. Goodfriend is a neighborhood bar that features a great line up of burgers, sandwiches, hot dogs and appetizers to pair with drinks from their full service bar. After we parked, we noticed a large crowd seated on the large outdoor patio enjoying drinks and watching the beginning of Game 5 of the World Series.      Continue reading
