A new bowling alley/ restaurant opened in the Design District. Bowlounge is located at 167 Turtle Creek Blvd, giving you an additional reason to frequent that burgeoning side of Dallas. The new business has been in the works for quite some time now, but has finally come to fruition. The restaurant portion of the bowling alley is not complete, so it is just bowling and booze for now.

Unlike counterparts popping up in Dallas, Bowlounge is considered a ‘retro blue collar’ hangout.  Continue reading

One of best cheese merchants in town paired with a quality wine merchant (while WinePoste is brand new, its principals have over 30 man-years in the wine business).

We Crave Ascension Coffee

Just at the four month mark, this two year concept in the making hit Dallas Café lovers, with a new twist on a traditional love.  Ascension Coffee is more than coffee.

We asked our Barista, and who would have known the owner was standing next to her, “what would you recommend, this is our first time?”  With a popular vote from the best sales to the best ingredients I warmed my hands on the Chai Latte with Almond Milk and my sidekick entertained the Quartado.  We were told the Almond Milk is soon to be made in house.  They also carry moo moo milk as I call it, and soy.  Both were to our liking, so after 30 minutes we ordered another round.      Continue reading
