The Flea is Back!


The Dallas Flea is back – and bigger and better than ever. The seasonal pop-up market leaves its original home for a 20,000 square foot space in Dallas’s thriving Trinity Groves neighborhood.

The Dallas Flea was founded in 2009 by interior designer and former lifestyle editor Brittany Cobb, who utilized her keen eye and local relationships to feature up to 100 area artisans under one roof. Offering furniture, home décor, art, clothing, jewelry, children’s items, dog gear, food and more, the quarterly market attracts 5,000-plus shoppers.

This year, Cobb has a lot more up her sleeve. At Trinity Groves, The Dallas Flea has tripled its footprint and doubled its artisan booths in addition to adding a food truck court, live music stage, photo booth and relaxing lounge area.   Continue reading

DiDi’s Tamale Diner in Trinity Groves is Closed *Updated

didiby Steven Doyle

The first fallout at Trinity Groves has happened. DiDi’s Tamale Diner went dark in the past few days, and the sign has been removed with a note stating that a new concept is “coming soon”. The tamale diner was a pretty restaurant, opening this past November serving up traditional tamales from both Mexico and Guatamala (chuchitos). The restaurant was run by Michael Beck and namesake Andina “DiDi” Fernandez.

Update: Trinity Groves responds…

“Trinity Groves is disappointed to announce that Didi’s Tamale Diner has closed. We know that Didi’s tamales are among the best in world and we are proud to have worked with her. The Trinity Groves leadership team is trying their best to make sure the employees find jobs at other restaurants in the development.

The purpose of this restaurant incubator is to learn which concepts are successful long-term and we are glad to see that it is working as we envisioned it would.

Currently, there are 12 restaurants open in the incubator and many new and creative restaurant concepts to select from to fill the former Didi’s space. We look forward to that project and continuing to serve all of our customers and guests at Trinity Groves.”

Craft Beer and Chili Cook-Off Set For Feb 8 In Trinity Groves

chiliby Steven Doyle

Although this has been an extremely mild winter in North Texas (so far), it is still the best time of year to enjoy a soothing bowl of spicy brick red chili. Look for the first chili cook-off of what the organizers trust will be an annual event in Trinity Groves at the 3015 event complex February 8, 2015 from noon to 5pm. Although not a sanctioned event, the rules are just as stiff with on-site cooking and a minimum of four gallons required for both a people’s choice and a judges panel award.   Continue reading

Oh lordy we love a good burger.  Just when we thought we have tried every burger in this meat-loving city, we discover another treasure trove and fantastic versions. This week we discovered one that is only served at lunch, and is chef-driven. That is a term for kicked up, meaty and packed full of culinary loving.   Continue reading

Rahr and Lakewood Breweries Kicked It Up At Luck Last Night For A Little Beer Week Fun

DSC05453by Steven Doyle

As NTX Beer week continues, last night was definitely a gem in its hat as two beloved breweries came together and made magic happen along with the boys at LUCK in Trinity Groves.

The dinner was nothing short of breath taking, as LUCK understands beer and pairings extremely well. Each course met with a different beer, culminating to a collaborative brew of both Rahr and Lakewoods making.  The meeting of beer minds is nothing particularly new to this industry, but it is always a little special when two local breweries, this time one from Dallas the other Fort Worth, come together and make a special kind of love. This particular brew is a Belgian-style dubbel. Balanced, smooth and malty sweet with a hint of spice from the Belgian yeast.   Continue reading
