The Joy of Ballpark Food: From Hot Dogs to Haute Cuisine

texasby Steven Doyle

Baseball is a game that is identified with food. We even sing about it at every ballpark during the seventh inning stretch: “….buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack…” The famous song was written by Jack Norworth in 1908.

From the early part of the twentieth century until the 1980s, classic baseball fare consisted mostly of hot dogs, ice cream, peanuts, and Cracker Jack. Then ballparks slowly began to sell new items. A proliferation of new food offerings during the 1990s was fueled by the opening of twelve new major league ballparks.   Continue reading

Hidden Thai Delights Found at Buddhist Center of Dallas

thai6by Steven Doyle

When asked where the most authentic Thai food in Dallas can be found I am taken back. There are so many fantastic Thai restaurants in Dallas and Fort Worth, and many have super authentic dishes available if you are in the know, or simply ask. However, for a taste of Thailand, and an experience that is truly unforgettable, reach out to the local Buddhist Temple located at 8484 Stults which is off Forest Lane near Central Expressway.    Continue reading

For The Love of Jackson

jackson1by Steven Doyle

If involved in any scene whatsoever, food, fashion or anything involving fun, you know of the man named Jackson. A single named entity right here in Dallas. He owns the exciting company Fluent, which is an ultra Dallas concierge service, or a lifestyle management company, that brings clients closer to the things they need most. Like most of Dallas, I consider Jackson a friend. If nothing else, the man inspires us all to be the best we can be at all things.

Jackson is a true Dallas icon, and today he needs us. Jackson recently suffered a stroke leaving him paralyzed on half his body. The tone and lean Jackson will no doubt recover, but like many of us who operate our own businesses Jackson does not have health insurance and his bills are mounting by leaps and bounds daily.  Continue reading

Bankhead Brewing Is Made Up Of Fine Brews And Bites

bank6by Steven Doyle

If you are from Dallas the burg of Rowlett might not be on your radar. It is actually a quaint town that is directly off the light rail which leads you directly to Rowlett’s growing revitalized downtown area.  And this is where you will also find Bankhead Brewing Company, a legitimate brewery who has won their fair share of awards for their masterful beer and a restaurant befitting those same fantastic beers.

The brewery is named for the Bankhead highway which was one of the first transcontinental highways built in 1916 that ran from Washington D.C to San Diego. The route included 850 miles through Texas which ran through downtown Rowlett. You can even see the three original three bridges from the old highway juting out of Lake Ray Hubbard, just south of Highway 66. Continue reading
