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

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

Loving Lekka on Henderson

lekka2by Steven Doyle

If you are familiar with Lekka in Far North Dallas on Preston Road you might be excited to hear that there is a new outpost on Henderson in the space that was once Gin Mill which closed suddenly one night in 2015. Since then the building sat quietly in wait of the new owners who have livened up the space with a fresh menu, slap-happy cocktails and all those pastries that make the original location so inviting.

For those unfamiliar with the 1921 N Henderson digs it is surrounded by Beauty Bar, Barcadia and Louies. The north side of Henderson that is spirited and romping.  Continue reading

high fiveby Steven Doyle

A fun hot spot that is a wee bit hidden on McMillan and Henderson is High Five. We gave them some love when they first opened and have continued to enjoy this tight atmosphere that is neither pretentious or self-indulgent.

June 8th High Fives celebrates two years on the grid and will feature live music and a DJ, a tot eating contest ($250 for the victor), a dunk tank and much more fun and high jinks. There will also be complimentary high fives given for those in need of positive affirmation.

To enter the contest please email Marc@highfivesdallas.com, this should be fun.

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
