Recently the web site The Best Colleges ran a list of the best dive bars in the country. You will be pleased to know Texas was represented twice, once in Austin for Ginny’s Little Longhorn Saloon, and the second is Dixie Chicken in College Station. By the way, Ginny’s wins our award for the worst web site design ever.
I haven’t been to either bar mentioned, but spent most of my time checking out the list of criteria to be on the list of the best dive bars. As one who takes great pride in hoisting a marginal beer in shady bars I took particular interest in what this web site felt made up a dive. I extracted some of the criteria from their list. Let’s hear what you think. Continue reading

As we get ready for the weekend we wish to thank you for checking out our little website this week. We considered throwing out a list of places to medicate your liver for St Pats, but there are plenty of options and we want to get started in on the fun ourselves right away.

Be safe and enjoy one of our favorite holidays of the year. May the hinges of our friendship never grow rusty.

I think it is fair to say we really enjoy a good cocktail at craveDFW. Probably more so than the average human should. Imagine how we felt after receiving this huge box from Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.
The staff wandered around the giant box with aplomb gazing at its wonderment, then we ravished the package like it was our first Christmas. We were hoping it was a giant haunch of beef, but to our amazement it was a set of cocktail tools. Continue reading

After dodging the $17 parking lot, a wine fan friend of mine and I giddily ventured into the Pavilion Room at The Fairmont Dallas upon an invite to experience a sample of what the Duchman Family Winery has to offer. Each of the four wines were paired with an hors d’oeuvre created by Andre Natera, Executive Chef at the hotel. Continue reading
