Memorial Daze at Shoals Sound and Service

Juego_de_domino.JPGby Steven Doyle

So many choices for fun events this weekend and we have one perfectly terrific one that will leave you scratching your head as you belly laugh throughout the day. Shoals Sound and Service is this cheeky little bar run by many of Dallas’ elite bartenders and owned by Omar Yeefoon and Michael Martensen. You will find Yeefoon there most hours but Martensen is running a beach resort at the moment in Mexico. Such the life, right?

The event, if you can even call it that, is called Memorial Daze ’18 and the big draw will be the domino tourney with a $25 buy-in ($50 per team) where there will be amazing prizes and giveaways. This alone is reason enough to forgo the beach. (What beach?) Continue reading

Where To Celebrate Super Bowl LII In Dallas

sb liiby Steven Doyle

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

Eat Me: TJ’s Seafood Market Cocktail Shrimp

tj1by Steven Doyle

There are these triggers that set off imagery of a holiday season past. These can vary from delicious scents such as your favorite Christmas pie, the wafting trail of a roasting pheasant or the blast of fragrance from the tiny pine cone found on your tree as you begin dressing it for the season.  There are musical triggers as well. Hearing the first Christmas tune when it actually becomes seasonal proper that lifts you with the spirit of the season can be powerful, as are the visualizations such as seeing the jolly man engaging a wide-eyed child filled with hope, and for us… a large platter of cocktail shrimp from TJ’s Seafood Market. There is also nothing more divine that a New Year’s platter or to from our favorite fishmonger.  Continue reading

New Years Eve 2017 Dallas Dining Ideas

new-year-celebration-ideas-coverby Steven Doyle

New Years Eve is definitely the spark that lights the path for the upcoming year and 2018 will definitely be one for the record book. Look for bright food trends and amazing new restaurants that will be serving more plant-based proteins, bold ethnic flavors and street food, greater emphasis on both children’s meals (definitely untapped in Dallas) and breakfast, under-utilized meats and vegetables, offal and of course the burger will take an even stronger hold on the city.

That said, let’s take a more traditional look on the big night which falls on a Sunday this year. Here are some of our favorite dining options for this New Years Eve. Make those reservations today! Continue reading
