Happy Pi Day, Ya’ll

On March 12, 2009 your lawmakers  passed a non-binding resolution (HRES 224) recognizing March 14, 2009 as National Pi Day. It is one of the more legit holidays we discuss here, and it is actually an homage to geeks everywhere who see the date as a reason to celebrate due to its mathematical implications. We say any reason to celebrate anything is just fine by us.

Since we are predominately about food we will suggest a few places to actually enjoy a pi(e) in Dallas.   Continue reading

7 Extremely Edible Eggs In Dallas

There has been this terrific trend in past years of adding an egg to most anything to make a more supple and delicious. The burger is a prime target for this unabashed egging, and always a welcome garnish on any style of tartare. The egg, if prepared correctly, provides a silky self-saucing thrill that ups the ante to sandwiches, pasta an salads. Eggs are not just for breakfast. Today we explore a handful of primo examples of how the egg has enhanced seven dishes in the Dallas area.    Continue reading

Tomorrow, September 18 is National Cheeseburger Day. I thought we just celebrated that a few months back with another story, but apparently that was National Hamburger Day. Big difference! Any reason for us to celebrate with a meaty sandwich filled with choice ingredients makes us happy.

We have a few suggestions how to celebrate the day on the cheap, and it will also give you a reason to check out some restaurants you may not have otherwise visited. Mutts Cantina  is located at 2889 Cityplace West Blvd. in Uptown, and they are offering you a $2 cheeseburger. This is all day and dine-in only. It will be a nice day, so perhaps this for lunch.  Continue reading

Sitting at a bar in either a restaurant or a pub you get to know the line on the action at the establishment. This is the very heart of the operation, and your friendly barman has the scoop on everything happening from their vantage point.

This is also the best place to score some fine vittles while soaking up your gin and tonic after an exhausting day of drinking gin and tonics. Sometimes a meal is not in order, but sharing a truly interesting bite at the bar hits the spot before moving on to your next task for the evening.      Continue reading

DSC06813by Steven Doyle

In the continuing saga in search for the perfect Pisco Porton cocktail in Dallas we came up with another draw this week. As we take down sections of the city by storm our intrepid group set its goggles on the Central Expressway corridor visiting some powerful cocktail dens, including the very new Smyth located just off Knox on Travis.

To catch you up, we have been invited as an emissary of libations by Pisco Porton to sample a variety of cocktails using their spirit. Pisco is made with tradition in Peru using a variety of grapes to develop a spirit as the Spanish settlers did in the 16th century.   Continue reading
