I think most of us are now educated enough in the ways of tequila, the refinement, the unexpected pleasure of the beautiful liquid. We know the difference between a tequila we might sip like a superior whiskey, and those which we would slam at a college frat party. Today we examine a few in the former category.
Here are a few of our favorites you might try this week as we celebrate tequila! Continue reading →
To kick off Women’s History Month, the Dallas Mavericks announced a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Gift of Character partnership with Girl Scouts of Northeast Texas (GSNETX) that will power the regional organization’s DEI efforts in four key structural transformations – people, programs, processes and properties. The Mavs are investing $50,000 annually over a 3-year period, for a total of $150,000. Through the continuous support of the partnership, the region’s Girl Scouts will be given the tools to build the courage to stand-up, the confidence to speak-up and the character to take action against inequities in the world.
Last month, the Mavericks and GSNETX kicked off the partnership with the region’s first-ever Black History Month Patch powered by the Dallas Mavericks, which will continue all three years. Girl Scouts (K-12) across 32 counties were encouraged to learn, connect and take action on topics that related to the history, culture, and contributions of African Americans. Photos of Dallas area Girl Scouts earning their Black History Month Patches are available for editorial use here. In February, the Mavs also became the first year presenting sponsor of the GSNETX World Thinking Day Panel, where community peacemakers joined the Girl Scouts in a conversation about how girls can build peace from a personal, community and global perspective.
There is nothing more popular than fried chicken. Besides poke bowls fried chicken might be what we crave most in Dallas today. There are certainly plenty of chef driven chicken joints to choose from, but sometimes we want it basic and simple, and that is when you will want to check in at Mike’s Chicken found in the most unlikely spots in Dallas. A DIY laundry located on Maple Avenue. Continue reading →
With successful locations in Allen and The Colony, Shakertins has found a loyal following of customers who appreciate its fun-loving atmosphere, friendly service, tasty drinks and fun bar food. Now, it’s bringing that tried-and-true concept to The Shops at Legacy North.
Shakertins is taking over the old Twisted Root space at the northeast corner of Legacy and the Dallas North Tollway. The 3,500-square-foot interior is complemented by an additional 1,000 square-foot patio, with dual garage doors creating a breezy indoor/outdoor feel. A separate space can accommodate 15-20 people for corporate meetings and private events—it’s wired for A/V presentations—and will function as a VIP lounge at night.
The most common question I am asked is which is the best burger in Dallas. I have a love-hate relationship with this question as the answer is in constant flux. It is either the last burger I had, or the next one. But in all honesty, there are about a dozen great burgers in Dallas that I would crave. Actually, the list is broader if you account for all the great chef-driven burgers which, to me, is difficult to compare to a burger only joint. The burgermeister deserves his own list, his own hall of fame, his own glory. Continue reading →
Keller’s Drive-In has been a Dallas staple since 1950 when Jack Keller opened his first drive-in in Dallas. Having worked at the original drive-in which was located on Chalk Hill off the DFW Turnpike, the Pig Stand, Keller ventured out to open his own restaurant replete with snazzy carhops, cold beer, and tasty burgers.
