Suddenly Silent: John Tesar Has Disappeared From Dallas

I’ve cruised past the construction site of John Tesar’s new restaurant, Spoon in Preston Center, several times this month and noticed zero activity. The permits were not on the windows and there was no construction taking place. Yesterday I checked Tesar’s Facebook and Twitter accounts, then texted and called him, and nothing. Last night I […]

This Little Piggy Went Downtown

We’re suckers for any press release that contains the following sentences: Yes, this is really real. Don’t you judge us; we all knew it would end up here someday. And yeah, your right we probably did go too far this time. Sorry, Mom. It seems a couple well-intentioned entrepreneurs have teamed up with J&D’s Foods […]

That little boy in the picture is my nephew James. He is almost three. He loves the Texas Rangers and tells anyone who will listen that Michael Young is his best friend. (He kinda is!)

Point CounterPoint: Should Dallas Restaurants Have a Time Limit?

[Ed. note: George poses this, in my opinion, stupid question. I am challenging him with, in my opinion, a smarter one.] George: A couple of weeks ago, a Zagat survey reported that 60% of dinners in New York supported a time limit which allows the restaurant to boot you from your table so they can […]

Dog Friendly Patios in Dallas: Fun or Foul

Despite the heat, I’m seeing an uptick in the number of restaurants advertising their dog friendly patios. In mid-2008 the City of Dallas amended their ordinance allowing dogs on restaurant patios under certain conditions, such as no outside food prep, entering only through an outdoor entrance, leashed only, and not allowed to sit on tables, […]

It’s “Sneak Some Zucchini Onto Your Neighbor’s Porch Day.” Insert Heavy Sigh.

The drought and soul-killing temperatures have done a number on my zucchini this year. The lush, ground-hugging vines that should have taken over my entire plot by now, look like dead snakes that tried to cross a desert highway. You, too? In years past, I’ve had such a viney bounty that I’ve used this holiday […]

Would You Attend A Crayfish Party At IKEA?

I know, I know, it’s a slow news day (and I’m feeling lethargic after lunch), but I thought I’d throw this debate out there anyway: IKEA is having their annual Kräftskiva (or all-you-can-eat Swedish crayfish party) on August 19. $9.99 for adults/$2.49 for kids under 12.

National Hot Fudge Sundae Day is Way More Fun Than Administrative Assistants’ Day

Love to grouse about Hallmark holidays? Well, strap in and get ready to either love or hate the following. Apparently there are a lot more interesting faux holidays out there than National Epitaph Day or Sweetest Day (how this differs from Valentine’s Day is beyond me). And they focus on food. (National Watermelon Eating Day, […]
