Boy Scout Hill Has Been Saved By East Dallas Residents

For residents of East Dallas the thought of developing Boy Scout Hill near White Rock Lake seemed sacrilegious. In a meeting back in December of 2013 members of the White Rock Lake Task Force were presented plans to develop the 12 square mile area. Architect Lyle Burgin and attorney Richard Kopf relayed information that they plan to build a restaurant on a patch of Boy Scout Hill. Neighbors of the park were none too pleased.

Although Mayor Mike Rawlins did not express an opinion of support at that time, it has been evident that he has been eager to develop White Rock for many years.    Continue reading

Updated Menu At Goodfriend

Many of you have experienced the amazing patio offerings at Goodfriend Beer Garden and Burger House. They have been open just over a year in their East Dallas digs, and have been crazy busy selling their amazing selection of brews and those killer burgers made by the crew next door at Good 2 Go Taco. There is a little pass through that enables Goodfriend to take all the credit for those burgers, but they are really being cranked out by chefs Jeana Johnson and Colleen O’Hare.

We just received word that there are a few new menu items at Goodfriend, and we will be heading over there this evening to graze through the offerings.      Continue reading

DSC05357by Steven Doyle

Meet John Schmitz and Eric Paulsen. Actually you may know these guys already; they have been serving you in several capacities for many years in a whole host of Dallas area restaurants and bars. Now the guys are about to open their own entry into the pub scene with their own new concept located in the old Dallas Bicycle Café location at 7510 E Northwest Hwy called The Lake House.

The Lake House will feature cocktails, craft beer and what they hope to be delicious bar food in an area bereft of this sort of talent. The pub hangs just off the White Rock Creek Trail and in the shares an enormous parking lot with Dallas Bike Works. The pair of new owners plan to work with the bike shop to gear events that will cater to riders who enjoy the trail, and liken the new spot to the Katy Trail.  Continue reading
