Memorial Daze at Shoals Sound and Service

Juego_de_domino.JPGby Steven Doyle

So many choices for fun events this weekend and we have one perfectly terrific one that will leave you scratching your head as you belly laugh throughout the day. Shoals Sound and Service is this cheeky little bar run by many of Dallas’ elite bartenders and owned by Omar Yeefoon and Michael Martensen. You will find Yeefoon there most hours but Martensen is running a beach resort at the moment in Mexico. Such the life, right?

The event, if you can even call it that, is called Memorial Daze ’18 and the big draw will be the domino tourney with a $25 buy-in ($50 per team) where there will be amazing prizes and giveaways. This alone is reason enough to forgo the beach. (What beach?) Continue reading

Acquiring Bubbles was actually by accident on eBay. After placing a bid in the auction, the ladies didn’t realize that the trailer was full of gaping holes. Or that the owner lives on a middle-of-nowhere ranch in Ohio. Continue reading

Perle at Stoneleigh Opens With Great History

[erle1.jpg

When it opened in 1923 as The Stoneleigh Court Hotel, it was a first-of-its-kind building that marked a very intriguing time in the history of Dallas itself, foreshadowing a century of legendary stories, celebrity visits, and a tradition of elegance and luxury that would become the trademark of Le Méridien Dallas, The Stoneleigh. Today, 95 years later, every bit of Le Méridien Dallas, The Stoneleigh’s storied past is carefully considered and showcased through the renovation of this historical landmark by acclaimed Studio 11 Design. The result is a reimagined restaurant featuring inspired French cuisine, refreshed gathering spaces, and a restoration of the landmark 11th and 12th floors, fondly known as The Penthouse, all boasting Le Méridien’s distinct mid-century modern approach to design and ‘Destination Unlocked’ positioning.
