Making Dallas Even Better

The New Bodega Wine Bar

Tucked quietly in a plaza off of Mockingbird and Abrams just two doors down from Taco Joint, the new location of the Bodega Wine Bar may be easy to miss. That’s okay. Once you get inside, you are immediately transported to a romantic, stone-walled den where all of your wine-loving desires come to life. This introduction may seem […]

The Five Best Coffee Shop Breakfasts in Dallas

Breakfast food is as essential as concrete and sports in a man’s life. For all sexes, the equivalent necessity is coffee. When the two are combined, something cosmic breaks open one’s spirit animal and everything begins to make sense. Dallas has no shortage of coffee shops. But for this particular experiment, I decided to dip a little deeper into our coffee scene and find some awesome food coming out of their kitchens. First of all, they must possess a kitchen, and the aforementioned food must come out of it. The food we’re going for here is relegated to the breakfast world.

That being said, here are some tasty plates from around town to order alongside that cup of joe.

First Take: Pinstack in Plano

With 50,000 square feet of playground for adults, children, and pretty much any form of human being, Pinstack is equipped for fun. What is Pinstack, you ask? It’s a behemoth, playground facility that houses more than 20 lanes for bowling, a restaurant, two bars, an arcade, laser tag, bumper cars, and a damn ropes course that’s actually above the arcade. It’s literally on top of it. You will push your rope-grappling body to the test within 10 feet of young and old men making records on the Transformers game (it’s the only one in existence). This is only the beginning.

North Texas Beer Week is well under way and to celebrate the awesomeness, The Meddlesome Moth hosted Garrett Oliver for a Pairdine event on Tuesday night.

Why I am not using these powers to save lives and secure my financial future is for another time. I am here to tell you about the evening prior to my metamorphosis.

VNA Luncheon with Uchi Chef and Owner Tyson Cole

Chef Tyson Cole is fantasy material. And now for Dallas, the fantasy is blossoming into a very tangible reality. The chef and owner of celebrated Austin restaurant, Uchi, is poised to open his Japanese wonder-house of culinary magic, right here in Dallas. You already know this. Nancy told you all about it in May, and she continued to tease your Uchi sensation in September by telling you all about a celebrity Chef luncheon held by the fine people at VNA. VNA runs Meals on Wheels and hospice care, and this was the fifth year they hosted this particular event. During the luncheon, Chef Tyson Cole demonstrated his skills, answered questions about how his seafood is better than yours, and told us why there will be no lunch at the new location in Dallas.
