LUCK in Trinity Groves never shied away from anything non-conventional. Think about their unusual doughnut-beer pairings that they perform on a regfular basis. We do love beer, and of course those warm and wonderful doughnuts from Glazed in Deep Ellum make our eyes roll to the back of our head. Continue reading

Chefs & Seeds 2nd annual fundraising event will be held on Wednesday, November 4th at 3015 at Trinity Groves from 7pm – 10pm, benefiting Seeds of Africa’s mission to create world-class schools and community centers in African communities.
Chefs & Seeds 2nd annual event is part of the two-year multi-city Dream School Campaign raising $2.2 Million to build a school and community center that will serve 600 students and their families in Adama, Ethiopia. Over $1 Million has already been raised towards the campaign. Atti Worku – former Miss Ethiopia, Columbia University honors graduate and Executive Director of Seeds of Africa – says, “I was lucky enough to grow up middle class in Ethiopia which meant my parents could afford to send me to one of the best schools in town, but I realized other children I grew up with were forced to attend underfunded and overcrowded schools while living in extreme and dangerous poverty situations. I realized that the children I grew up with and the children I went to school with had two different trajectories in life that seemed to me extremely unfair.” Continue reading

It has been about a year since I last visited the people at 44 Farms. You most likely recognize the name from the many top quality menus that feature their beef. They feature the beef for good reasons. Such as the fact that 44 Farms refuses to use hormones for their grass fed beef, and have strict quality control over their herd. It is also important to know where your food is grown and how it is handled. The transparency makes a world of difference. Continue reading

It’s finally coming. The time of year that we feel the first cool winds start blowing through the yard and the thought of sitting anywhere near a fire actually sounds bearable, if not pleasant. This is without a doubt my favorite season. Weather, ambiance, and Halloween aside, the greatest promise that the fall brings is the return of one of my greatest loves in life, the dark beer.

I love Texas. I really do. It’s home. It’s turned me into the man I am today (those that know me can critique that man in the comment section). I love my barbecue, my Cowboys, and my drawl that sounds straight from a Nascar pit crew. However, if I don’t leave occasionally, I would probably wind up drunk, and pissing in the middle of the street, in the Fort Worth Stockyards, talking about the good ol’ days, when there was no such thing as “fleek”. So, occasionally, I book an impromptu trip. I pack a carry-on with way-too-few clothes, and I get to the airport as soon as possible. I will now attempt, through relaying my debauchery on one of those trips, to persuade you to drop what you are doing this weekend, and get the hell out of town.
First, let’s hammer out prerequisites that you should take into account in your spontaneous weekend trips. You cannot be a demanding traveler, period. I feel I need to beat you about the head with this tidbit. When I travel, I intend to spend my money stupidly at my final destination, not spend my money stupidly on the travel to get there. So, yeah, I’ve been crammed into an economy seat between seemingly an asthmatic sumo wrestler, and a severely ill-tempered, and gassy retiree. I’ve even watched a girl that I can only assume was Snookie’s post-op cousin get booted from a plane for cussing a crying infant. My traveling arrangements aren’t luxurious, but they are efficient. They get me there, wherever “there” is, for cheap. Continue reading

Drinking games are an awesome way to spend some good quality time with family and friends. I’ve got a few off-the-cuff games that my friends and I play on the regular. Each one with difficulty and added strategy. These games are not all necessarily drinking games but with a little bit of an imagination and creative thinking they become a whole new level of fun and entertainment.
The first and easiest of the three is an actual real sport, bowling. That’s right bowling, dude, the sport of kings. It’s really the only sport, outside of golf, where the more I drink the better I seem to get. Or at least I feel like I do better, under the influence. The game here is loser buys the drinks consumed by all party members within the time of the ten frame game. You would be surprised how many beers you could slam in a single game, especially when you know you are going to win. Continue reading
