There is little to make a sandwich wonderful other than fantastic bread, well thought out seasonings and spreads, and a filling that should be unsurpassed.

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.

If you have not tried Carnival Barkers Ice Cream, which is located at the very fun Truck Yard on Greenville Avenue, we have a new reason for you to slip on by for a taste. The lastest flavor uses local brownie maven Iris McCallister’s Oh* Brownie to make this Blonde Brownie Nutella ice cream. Seriously good stuff.
The address is 5624 Sears Street, located just across the road from Trader Joes on Lowest Greenville.
How many Twinkies could you stuff in your belly? I am thinking personally maybe 2. The packages come portion controlled for a reason. However, the good people at the Truck Yard wish to take it to a more epic count. Over the next two weeks the Truck Yard will be profiling ten competitive eaters on their Facebook page, followed up with a Twinkie throw-down Saturday, November 16th at 4pm. Contestants will wash down the sponge cakes with a few tallboys. Defibrillator optional.
