Most of the free world is looking forward to the latest edition of the Super Bowl, a rematch of 2004’s Super Bowl XXXIX, which was won by New England 24–21, Super Bowl LII is the first Super Bowl appearance for the Eagles since that game. The Patriots became the first team since the Seattle Seahawks (who made Super Bowls XLVIII and XLIX) to appear in two consecutive Super Bowls, having won Super Bowl LI in the previous season, and are also seeking to become the first team to repeat as Super Bowl victors since the Patriots themselves won Super Bowls XXXVIII and XXXIX. Philadelphia is making its third appearance in the Super Bowl, having lost Super Bowls XV and XXXIX.
What we really most concerned about is where to enjoy the game in the Dallas area. We looked for great booze prizes, food deals and free entry. Check out our short list of a few of our big choices. Continue reading

Black-eyed peas have long been a traditional New Years dish with the thought that they bring the eater good luck. The tradition dates back to the Civil War, when Union troops, especially in areas targeted by General William Tecumseh Sherman, typically stripped the countryside of all stored food, crops, and livestock, and destroyed whatever they could not carry away. At that time, Northerners considered “field peas” and field corn suitable only for animal fodder, and did not steal or destroy these humble foods. It’s a southern thing.
There are a few great places to enjoy your personal pot of good luck in the Dallas area. Certainly look to the obvious spots such as Celebration on Lovers Lane in Dallas where they have been serving southern hospitality since 1971. In addition to your black-eyed peas, you can also find a great chicken fried steak, catfish, meatloaf and other hearty dishes to start your year off right. Continue reading
Honestly? Thanksgiving is mostly about watching football, stuffing yourself with turkey, having a few drinks, and arguing with your uncle. But often lost in those national pastimes is the actual “giving thanks” part. So GAPCo is getting ahead of the curve, and giving thanks to all of its friends and supporters this Friday.
On November 17, GAPCo is offering $2 two-topping slices at its second (and newest) location at 1145 Peavy Rd from open until close. That means you’ve got a full day and much of the night to enjoy discounted pizza. Because if there’s anything better than pizza, it’s cheaper-than-usual pizza—ideally with a beer, too, so be sure to order one of those to wash it all down.
GAPCo has been embraced by the East Dallas community, and feels so fortunate to have the support of its regulars and new customers alike. This is just their small way of giving back the best way they know how—with pizza. Everyone’s invited, so mark your calendar, then follow that fresh-baked scent to $2 pizza glory
After much anticipation, Greenville Avenue Pizza Company is finally ready to unveil its new restaurant at the corner of Garland Road and Peavy Road. The company’s second location joins the bustling neighborhood that includes friendly neighbors like Goodfriend Beer Garden, the Goodfriend Package Store, 20 Feet Seafood Joint and Hello Dumpling. Now, the appetizing intersection can add pizza to its roster. Continue reading
The second location of Greenville Avenue Pizza Company
is in the works, and this Friday, January 20th
, the pizza spot’s sign is going up. To commemorate the occasion, your friends at GAPCo will be across the street at Goodfriend Beer Garden, where they will be handing out 100 free T-shirts, to those who like them on Facebook, featuring that new signage.
Since opening in 2007, Greenville Avenue Pizza Company has worked hard to establish itself in Dallas— persevering through a recession, riding out neighborhood development and even changing its business model to embrace delivery. The little pizza shop’s drive has paid off, as Fortune magazine has just named GAPCo one of this year’s 100 fastest-growing inner city companies, as ranked by the Initiative for a Competitive Inner City.
With an impressive five-year growth rate of 324%, GAPCo earned the #34 spot in the ranking. And they’re not done yet, as the company is opening a second location soon and hopes to open several more in the next few years. Continue reading
We like your chances in 2016, but it can’t hurt to stack the deck in your favor. That’s why countless people eat luck-producing black eyed peas on New Year’s Day. But Greenville Avenue Pizza Company wanted to make this tradition a little better and a lot tastier with their “Hoppin’ Jean” pizza.
It all starts with a perfect crust topped with Alfredo or pizza sauce, per the customer’s preference. Then they pile on the mozzarella cheese and a healthy dose of Hoppin’ John, which consists of black eyed peas, sausage, bacon, rice and spices. A large pie costs $23 while a small goes for $17.
