Hands down one of my favorite ciders, especially during Fall in Texas where your want colder weather but are stuck with muggy 90-degree days in late October.  It's a ruby-colored cider,  and most of the fruit notes are berry, unlike more traditional ciders having prono...

If you're in the mood for a fun, quirky time with wonderful beer, solid food, and great people-watching potential, head to BrainDead Brewing in Deep Ellum. We did, and enjoyed ourselves immensely.

We're huge fans of Trinity Groves!  Just the drive over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge on a scooter, or with the top down (on your car) makes you excited to taste what's on the other side. LUCK is what was on the other side for us this trip.

When you combine 14 fantastic wines, a blind-tasting challenge, and Donald Trump / Hillary Clinton costumes, there's really no telling what's going to happen!

It's no secret that I'm a big fan of IPAs.  I don't mind super-hoppy--especially on a cooler day--but prefer citrus and/or tropical notes when it's hot out.  Recently, at LUCK in Trinity Groves, I had an opportunity to try one I've never had before:  Grapevine Craft Br...

From the outside, the only thing you would expect from this place is a bad case of food poisoning, or maybe the chance to get 1-hour business cards.  As unassuming as it looks (it's in a run-down strip center, after all), this has some of the best Ramen in Dallas.  We...

We often frequent Urbano Cafe, located on Fitzhugh in East Dallas.  Number one, it's super convenient.  Number two, it's BYOB.  Number three, they are one of the few restaurants in DFW that regularly have seared duck breast on the menu (I'd like to believe they succumb...

We try not to go to grand openings of restaurants--preferring to let them figure things out for a couple of weeks before showing up and critically rating the place.  We possibly should have waited a little bit longer for Haymaker.

Now let's be clear--it wasn't bad.  Not...

The takeaway is that Little Woodrow's in Dallas holds a ton of promise.  Great restaurant design, and really set up to allow for a great experience.  Except that, in the food and drink and service departments, it absolutely wasn't great.  Or even good.  Or even really...

Coolest place to have a late-night scotch or whisky in DFW--especially if you happen to like a good blowtorch every now and then.  While they normally reserve the smoked glasses for their signature Old Fashioned, if you ask nicely (and compliment them on their quirky N...
