My early formative years were outside of the South--Colorado, Washington, D.C., Connecticut--and I didn't get to the "real" South until undergrad in South Carolina.  Needless to say, both the state, and where I went to college, epitomized the "buckle of the Bible belt....

Way back in the fall, we posted a review of Little Woodrow's on Ross Avenue.  As you can see from our post, we were NOT IMPRESSED to say the least.  Well, today, while visiting a great new neighborhood gem of a wine and spirits shop (Bar & Garden---review to come soon)...

A few months ago, we were having a glass of wine at a local wine bar, and learned that a Mellow Mushroom was being built across the street (in place of a favorite Tex/Mex joint that had recently been torn down).  I'd never heard of Mellow Mushroom, but since Natalie we...

This past Friday night, Natalie and I wanted to do something special, but wanted to stay home.  It had been a crazy week, and we just didn't want to navigate the whole "last minute reservations" scenario.  SO, what to do?  Cook at home!  

Seems simple, ex...

We recently checked out the new Craft Beer Cellar in Lakewood--a cool new beer shop and tap room in Old Lakewood that sits in a spot that used to be inhabited by a Papa John's Pizza, right next to another favorite spot of ours, Cock & Bull.  The place has been highly a...

A couple of weeks ago, we were in the mood for some great BBQ.  It was a late Sunday afternoon, and was really bitingly cold, so we figured the  line at Pecan Lodge would be shorter than usual.  When we drove by (at roughly 2:15), we saw there wasn't even a line--AMAZI...

We recently decided to dust off our copy of Paul Bocuse:  the Complete Recipes and try a classic we've heard a lot about over the years--Chef Bocuse's famous Black Truffle Soup.

A little background on why this recipe is so famous.  When Chef Bocuse was awarded the Frenc...

One of our favorite places to hang out and have a beer is Ships Lounge--a legendary dive-bar off of lowest Greenville and Ross that has been a Dallas staple for decades (it holds the disputed title of oldest bar in Dallas).  We'd go, we'd bring cash, we'd listen to the...

No matter where you live, Winter is now officially here.  And that means that (finally) it is time for Scotch consumption (not that you can't drink Scotch during the summer, but it just isn't quite the same)!  A good single-malt Scotch is one of my favorite things, so...

Over the past couple of years, the U.S. Government has been cozying up to Cuba, in an attempt to "reset" a relationship that has been pretty chilly since the late 1950s.  Yesterday, for the first time in decades, a regularly-scheduled commercial flight left the United...
