Memorial Daze at Shoals Sound and Service

Juego_de_domino.JPGby Steven Doyle

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

Niwa Celebrates Japanese Meat Day Each Month

TX Wagyu

Niwa Japanese BBQ is declaring Niko No Hi or Meat Day an official must-have holiday every 29th of the month in Dallas, starting on March 29, 2018.  Popular in Japan, every 29th of the month is Meat Day and it’s celebrated by eating meat that day.

Why the 29th?  It’s a curious word play of the numbers 2 and 9.  The number components make up the word ni-kyuu which sounds similar to niku which means meat.  Continue reading

It is National Margarita Day. These foodie holidays can be a bit wearisome, but this is one day I can circle my wagon around. It also happens to fall on Chili Day, which we have provided handily for you to enjoy. But let’s take a look at some specials going on today and a look at our favorites. Because it is a day to celebrate.

We spoke with Leann Berry last night, she is part of the Dream Team who re-opened Cedars Social recently. Berry is the ace bartendress behind the new concept and has been named repeatedly one of the best bartenders in Texas, and even more specifically one who makes the best margarita. If you are out running the cocktail beat tonight, you will want to stop by for a visit.  Continue reading
