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...

It's the holiday season, and let's face it--foodies are hard to shop for.  In part 3 of our series on gifts foodies will like, we focus on books about food, wine, spirits, and gastronomy that are sure to please.  These are available at your local bookstore (to the exte...

We love Truck Yard during the day on weekends, where there's few rivals for your cold beer / live music dollar.  But, for some reason, we never remember that this place is a fantastic late-night option for food during the week.  One recent cold and dreary Wednesday nig...

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...

Now that the holiday season is upon us, it's time to shop for new fun things to give as gifts (or potentially keep for yourself).  Just in case anyone is shopping for the foodie in their life this weekend, we have a few recommendations for kitchen and other gadgets tha...

Winter finally arrived in North Texas, and so we were in the mood for something hearty.  Wine was also a must, especially because the next several stops for our Saturday involved buying lots of Christmas decorations.  SO, where to go for a quick, hearty, delicious lunc...

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...
