Take Flight to El Tesoro del Inca

by Steven Doyle

Peru is the epicenter for much that we enjoy today. The simple potato has its origins to the Andes and nearly every potato found worldwide can be traced back to Peru. The humble peanut made its way to Africa via the Spaniards, and vast variety of corn stems from the region.

TABC Luau Monkey Shine

by Steven Doyle

TABC the restaurant, not the punitive alcohol regulative entity, is hosting their second annual Summer Luau Thursday, August 16, 2012 starting at 9pm. This may not sound like the typical news we report at craveDFW, and would normally be a blip as a Facebook invitation. But the announcement claims there will be a live monkey at the event. A live monkey.

Make plans accordingly and watch this old Gorillaz video to get you in the mood.
