Conceptualized by the partners behind LUCK at Trinity Groves, Jeff Dietzman and Lance Bodwell and operated in partnership with Jim Elliot, Cedar Creek Brewhouse & Eatery in Farmers Branch is a family-friendly destination for scratch-made food, craft beer and cocktails with an elevated brewpub feel.
The brunch, lunch and dinner menus are designed to pair with the astounding 25 beers available on tap, many from the brand’s partner brewery in nearby Seven Points, Texas. Signature dishes include a slow smoked Pastrami Brisket sandwich, specialty pizzas and Bierocks, a traditional German dish consisting of meat and cheese wrapped in puffed dough.
Amplified is Dallas’s new home for live music, great food and cold drinks. Occupying the same space as the former Gas Monkey Bar & Grill, the updated concept reopens October 5 with a renovated interior, improved audio system and new menu. Headlining the grand opening is Manchester Orchestra—tickets are on sale now.
The October 5 opening will also include Hush Money bassist and tattoo artist, Bob Kakaha (aka Bob Zilla), who will be on site inking attendees with Amplified lightning bolt tattoos and other designs to commemorate the occasion.
Addison Oktoberfest has been recognized as one of the most authentic Oktoberfest celebrations outside of Munich for over three decades. This year, approximately 50,000 fans will come together September 16-19, 2021, to share a love of polka, German food and, of course, the same Paulaner Bier that would traditionally be served at Bavaria’s favorite festival.
Hotel and ticket pakets – no, that’s not a misspelling; it’s the German word for packages – run $20 and up, and include lots of extras.
A few years back we discussed the tragic and curious Boston Molasses Flood that killed 21 and injured over 150, demolishing buildings and drowning livestock, causing millions of dollars in damages. There was another industrial accident that wreaked havoc on a city, killing many and causing damage that is equally as curious.
Like all tragic stories such as these a certain element of hubris rides high, not too unlike the massive container of molasses that exploded in Boston all those years ago, or even the supposedly unsinkable Titanic. Continue reading →
There is a place, a hidden place, where you can find cold beer, great burgers and incredible live music. This is the place many know as Lee Harvey’s. In its own compound surrounded by barbed wire and a double gate to prevent happy pets from either getting in, or escaping, you will find nothing but great camaraderie and smiles at this hot spot in the Cedars area of Dallas.
The food at Lee Harvey’s is nothing short of splendid, and is made out of a kitchen much smaller than your own at home. The food comes out quickly and perfect every time for a place with such adversity as this small workspace. But that is the only thing small about the bar. The burgers are enormous, clocking in at a half pound and topped with as many ingredients as you might care to savor. The meat is juicy and hand formed, and even though the bun is sturdy the juices make fast play with your ability to manage this monster. Continue reading →
