We Rocked With Joe Freakin’ Perry This Weekend

This weekend we had the pleasure to hook up with  Aerosmith’s Joe Perry and his family a we made our way about the city of Dallas after his concert Saturday evening. As a person who spends much of his life on the road (in a well appointed tour bus) Perry has sought out ways to spice up what otherwise could be bland or boring meals. He is obviously in terrific shape, and noted that after a concert he would typically eat turkey legs. He carries around his own spice kit and historically purchased bottles of sauces to make the turkey more flavorful. A few years back he decided to create his own line of sauce blends that would kick up his meals, and soon offered them to the public. The Rock Your World sauces come in several flavors, including a spicy Boneyard Brew, Original BBQ and a Peach Mango.      Continue reading

Wine of the Week: A $20 Aussie Shiraz That Scored 90 Points for $13

What a bargain. A wine that scored 90 points out of 100 in the prestigious Wine Advocate (placing it in the top 5% of wines tasted) for $19.98 is rare enough indeed, but the Lakewood wine store with the wacko name, The Wine Therapist, is discounting it to $12.99 for a limited time.

2010 Mr. Riggs ‘The Gaffer’ Shiraz, McLaren Vale, Australia

The special price is the one that they offered at a store tasting two Saturdays back. They sold out. The reason for the resumption of the tasting price is that they just managed to secure new supplies from the distributor.  Continue reading

Apheleia Restaurant Group and Jet Tila, chef-partner of Pakpao, are excited to announce the opening of a second location of Pakpao in Preston Hollow, a neighborhood in north Dallas.

The restaurant, which will seat about 80 patrons, will be located in Preston Hollow Village, a 42-acre mixed-use development planned for the northwest corner of Walnut Hill & 75. The project will include over 100,000 square feet of retail & restaurants, 60,000 square feet of office space, 100 town homes, and 1,100 multi-family residences. A Trader Joe’s, Blue Sushi Restaurant + Bar, and Modmarket are a few of the planned retail and restaurant spaces in Phase I, along with Pakpao.

The Preston Hollow Pakpao will have a similar design to the original location in the Dallas Design District, with the restaurant’s bright colors and modern Thai influences, but with a larger bar area. The menu will be largely the same as the Design District Pakpao’s, but with a few small differences, says Tila.   Continue reading
