We Dig The Dugg Burger

DSC07191by Steven Doyle

Burgermania continues to thrive in Dallas as more restaurants open that feature burgers and more burgers.The latest we tried is one called Dugg Burger which is located on Garland Road in Casa Linda. What makes the Dugg Burger unique is not only the process, but the high quality ingredients and the simple pricing scheme.

First for the process. It is a bit unusual, but definitely what makes the Dugg unique. The moment you walk in the door they fire a burger patty. They already know you will have a burger because that is all they serve. Then they take a fresh Village Baking Company bun (our favorite) and hollow out the top inside with a patented auger. Never fear, nothing is wasted, and they use the cored bun portion to make bread pudding. That comes later. The bun is then buttered and set on another special tool they had created to fir the augured portion of the bun so the inside gets fully browned and crisp.   Continue reading

An Easter Pop Up With A Cause

bark1

A group of pastry chefs will be holding a pop-up shop for Easter on April 4th from 10am-3pm at 3001 Gaston Ave at the Big E’s store. This pop-up is extra special because they are all including something to donate to a charity of their choice.

Bark Chocolate is sponsoring DFW German Shepherd Rescue as the charity they will be donating to. More specifically, to a particular dog named Jake, who was surrendered by his owners in extremely poor condition. He will need a lot of vet care and TLC until he’s healed enough to be available for adoption. Bark  will be selling organic dog treats and 100% of the proceeds will go to Jake’s vet bills. Additionally, they will have a donation jar set up for him, and people are welcome to bring dog toys for Jake as well.   Continue reading

The premier concert series “Cool Thursdays” at the Dallas Arboretum is back in action. As Dallas’ only concert series overlooking the picturesque White Rock Lake on the award-winning Martin Rutchik Concert Stage and Lawn, tickets have been selling fast and selling out. This year the series will kick off on April 9 with a new band, Rocket Man: The Elton John Tribute Experience.

Rocket Man gives an insanely energetic performance time after time, throwing around jams such as “Saturday Night’s Alright” and “Pinball Wizard” before sending audiences exploding into space with extended 70’s instrumental versions of “Rocket Man,” “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” and “Levon.”  Rocket Man musicians actually portray Elton John’s intense 70’s & 80’s concerts down to the finest detail.  Continue reading
