White Trash Bottle Service At Truck Yard For Limited Time

Watermelonby Steven Doyle

Our favorite adult playground is at it again, this time with giant watermelons and zero shame. The same spot off Greenville Avenue who makes the best cheesesteaks in Dallas is offering up a fun option for some end of summer love. Behold: the White Trash Bottle Service. When I first saw the headline in my email inbox I was thinking 40′s of Schlitz. No, this is so much better.

On Friday from 5pm until we run out, the Truck Yard is offering “White Trash Bottle Service.” Basically, they’re tapping whole watermelons with a pour spout and loading them up with tequila, fresh lime juice and triple sec. Combine that with the watermelon juice, and you’ve got a fruit keg full of electrolytes. And tequila.  Continue reading

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.    Continue reading

Q-n-A With The Milagro Texas Brand Ambassador

DSC07575by Steven Doyle

I spent the better part of this week shadowing the Milagro Tequila ambassador as he made his way around our village, spreading the good word about tequila and the upcoming Margarita Meltdown which we both are sponsors. JP de Loera is an affable fellow who was probably born for this position, but in our Q&A we ask how one becomes ambassador. In our notes I was to ask him about diplomatic immunity, but through the fog of many margaritas we failed to ask that important question.

We did witness the good ambassador offer to buy a group of elderly women shots of tequila. The Oak Cliff Business Women’s Club was more than pleased to oblige his valiant offer. Although JP acknowledged that shooting good tequila was probably not the best use of his product, it was fun none the less. And isn’t that what it is all about?     Continue reading
