If involved in any scene whatsoever, food, fashion or anything involving fun, you know of the man named Jackson. A single named entity right here in Dallas. He owns the exciting company Fluent, which is an ultra Dallas concierge service, or a lifestyle management company, that brings clients closer to the things they need most.

Now considered a national dish, the Chinese roasted duck can be found almost everywhere. The best versions are most assuredly found where you may view the carcasses in their full splendor, and one of our very favorites can be tasted at First Chinese BBQ.   Continue reading
