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
