The history of the margarita runs deep in Texas and no matter if it’s frozen or shaken, Dallas loves a great margarita. This is only one reason why you will want to check out the 5th annual Dallas Margarita Meltdown. The Dallas Margarita Meltdown will take place during Memorial Day weekend on Sunday, May 24th from 4pm-9pm in Dallas’ historic Bishop Arts District. The margarita competition will be 4-7pm with the winner being announced at 8pm.
The Margarita Meltdown is sponsored by Milagro Tequila.

It is the Queen of Chocolate’s birthday today. Katherine Clapner will most likely be celebrating with chocolate in true Dude, Sweet fashion, but we have a few ways not to celebrate her birthday. With bad chocolate. Below we provide a list of the worst chocolaty treats you could possibly imagine. Some do not even truly qualify as chocolate. For a real celebration we suggest checking out one of three Dude, Sweet Chocolate stores in DFW, including the new location on Greenville Avenue.

Celebrity trainer, Jillian Michaels, recently said Dallas should stop drinking so many margaritas. She might as well tell us to stop breathing.
Originally just tequila and lime juice, the margarita dates back to 1924 and didn’t make its way to the United States until Cointreau introduced it in 1962. Dallasites have been making up for lost time ever since. Whether it’s the tried and true margarita, or a newly concocted variation, we’re inviting the best margaritologists to compete to find the best margarita in Dallas at the fourth annual Dallas Margarita Meltdown.

Recently I was an invited guest at a special dinner hosted by Knob Creek that was held at Boulevardier in Bishop Arts. Boulevardier is already one of my favorite Dallas restaurants, but this was a special menu that included two whole hogs, one which was actually broken down in front of the gathering by one chef Nathan Tate. Tate is a bounty of a man that easily and deftly handles the hog with precision accuracy. He used each part of the swine to create a splendid dinner that had diners chatting about it for days. Here is why.
The evening started with a flurry of passed appetizers and Knob Creek laced cocktails. Eddie Eakin had a full complement of bartenders staffed and ready to make the cocktails fly at a moments notice. Although we thoroughly enjoyed sipping the whiskey straight, it was particularly enjoyed in each of the four cocktails presented that evening. We started with a Brown Bomber which is made up of Cocchi Americano, Suze, and Five Spice Bitters. I am sure Eakin can recreate this cocktail for you should you ask. He is currently undertaking a 150 cocktail bible that will be enacted soon at the restaurant. Continue reading
