We told you about Enticed Shaved Ice in the middle of an extraordinarily hot August. One commenter wrote: “Excellent product and friendly people.” How right they are. But shaved ice doesn’t sell well when it’s raining and windy and the temperature dips below 40 degrees. So owners and entrepreneurs Sydney Brown and Lauren Noblett decided to sell something hot. Like PIZZA. Today the send word they are expanding their “fleet” to add TX Delizioso, a truck offering pizza and other Italian entrees plus soups and salads. They are also an official Go Texan partner, using as much local product as possible. We have mobile pizza ovens–Il Cane Rosso and Cavalli–but TXDelizioso is Dallas’ first pizza truck.
TX Delizioso has already obtained their permits and is in the process of finalizing their menu. Look for them to roll soon.2 Comments »
The Concept: Sundown at Granada is the Granada Theater‘s neighboring restaurant and bar with a long list of draft beers and hand-crafted cocktails. Although I’m sure you can grab a bite pre-show, I would be filled with panic watching a line get longer next door while shoveling down the last forkfulls of food and chugging the rest of a beer. This is a perfect spot, however, to discuss your favorite act post-performance and perhaps mingle with band members, who are sure to wander over for a bite.
Who’s There: Thirty-somethings interested in enjoying some quality time together. (Rather than 20-somethings hollering over their third round of Jager bombs.)6 Comments »
As you can tell from the headline, I am deep in the process of procrastinating. While my real job calls for thousands of words about dining, I am convinced it is far more important that I drop what I am supposed to be doing and answer a question sent to me by PR boy toy Jef Tingley. Yes, he spells his name with one “f,” but I will save that analysis for a later procrastination post.
“Jef with one f” asked me how to boil an egg. Don’t laugh. How many times have you had tiny shards of shell pierce the delicate skin beneath your fingernail? I shared my secret with “Jef with one f” by private message on Facebook which made several people curious enough to email and ask (BEG!) for my secret.
You are going to have to jump hard. Continue reading "The Perfect Procrastination: How To Boil an Egg"11 Comments »
I have two songs permanently embedded in my head. They’ve been there for years (centuries?). They have a life of their own and flow from the deep recesses of my right cerebrum and out of my mouth without a prompt. One is “I Want to Marry a Lighthouse Keeper.” The other is “Java Jive” as performed by Manhattan Transfer. We all know “Brown Sugar” has nothing to do with food, but, WITHOUT GOOGLE, what songs about food do you sing? Waiter, waiter, percolator…
Just when you think that the world is filled with Big Blue Meanies armed with master computer killers, someone sends you a note and you realize there are still nice people who want to help others. Consider this lovely soul
In an effort to become a “well rounded human being,” I am trying to step out and find some ways to give back to the community. In light of that, I thought it would be neat to find a way to combine the desire to help out with my enjoyment of food and the preparation thereof. So, I was wondering if you might know of any opportunities on that avenue, or if there’s anyone out there who might know more about it.
The avenue is long and wide. Help him find a place to park.9 Comments »
