Honestly? Thanksgiving is mostly about watching football, stuffing yourself with turkey, having a few drinks, and arguing with your uncle. But often lost in those national pastimes is the actual “giving thanks” part. So GAPCo is getting ahead of the curve, and giving thanks to all of its friends and supporters this Friday.
On November 17, GAPCo is offering $2 two-topping slices at its second (and newest) location at 1145 Peavy Rd from open until close. That means you’ve got a full day and much of the night to enjoy discounted pizza. Because if there’s anything better than pizza, it’s cheaper-than-usual pizza—ideally with a beer, too, so be sure to order one of those to wash it all down.
GAPCo has been embraced by the East Dallas community, and feels so fortunate to have the support of its regulars and new customers alike. This is just their small way of giving back the best way they know how—with pizza. Everyone’s invited, so mark your calendar, then follow that fresh-baked scent to $2 pizza glory
The look of Kubys hasn’t changed much over the years

Kuby’s has been a Dallas institution since 1961 creating house-made sausages, offering cured meats, a large variety of salads and fresh meats in their delicatessen. A few years back Karl Kuby told us that he has a smoker that is massive and valued in excess of $125,000. That dedication to the craft is evident in the product they make available at their Snider Plaza location in Dallas.

One of my first visits to Kalachandji’s was as a college student, and it was Thanksgiving. The meal included a visit to the Krishna temple escorted by one of the many devotees who live in the neighboring homes. With the meal we enjoyed a tofu turkey, which was actually much more delicious than it sounds. Although the spice level is very minimal, the repast was elegant and flavorful. We dined in the open air patio which is centered inside the restaurant.
During subsequent visits I was shown more of the cuisine, and always have a great sampling at the luncheon buffet which is excellently curated by the cooks, setting out just enough for the guests as necessary as not to compromise the quality of the food. Continue reading
If there’s one downside to fabulous, food-filled holiday celebrations, it’s the gurgles and groans of post-feasting indigestion.
“We assume it’s because we overate, but for a lot of people, that pain and sick feeling may not be about how much you ate but what you ate,” says Kyra Bussanich, three-time winner of The Food Network’s “Cupcake Wars” and author of a just-released recipe book, Sweet Cravings: 50 Seductive Desserts for a Gluten-Free Lifestyle.

Is there a thing called “pie season”? I know there is a Pie Council, possibly in the same vein as Garrison Keillor’s “Catsup Advisory Board” or his “American Duct Tape Council”. Pie Season to me would encompass most of the calendar not already loaded up with pie goodness such as National Pi Day, or Pie Day. There is also “Eat a Pie Day – December 1”, “Raspberry Cream Pie Day – August 1”, “National Cherry Pie Day – February 1” and a litany of other super cool pie days. But Pie Season could happen four times a year with a suggestion of seasonal pies throughout. Continue reading
For its annual holiday tradition, Norma’s Cafe, the original Dallas dining icon serving Texas home cooking for more than 60 years, will open its doors on Thursday, Nov. 23 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. for its 29th Free Thanksgiving Dinner. The free meal will be available only at Norma’s Cafe’s original Oak Cliff location on 1123 W. Davis Street in Dallas.
“Our team cannot imagine Thanksgiving Day without sharing it with our community and being a part of a larger movement to spread holiday joy to those in need,” said Ed Murph, owner of Norma’s Cafe. “For the past 29 years, we’ve opened our cafe and provided a home-cooked meal to those who need it, but it would not be possible without our partners and volunteers who share our passion of helping others.” Continue reading
