While a gospel choir from a church in West Dallas sang, I dug into my salad of grilled Texas peach, arugula, and Paula (Lambert)’s fromage blanc. I couldn’t find my husband. He’d finished his sweet summer corn bisque and gone to get a drink from Eddie “Lucky” Campbell, who was holding court at the bar. The wind picked up and the crowd collectively sighed. We were sitting in the middle of Dallas’ newest park, the Continental Avenue Bridge, which used to be a motor vehicle bridge until its neighbor (the Large Marge) opened in 2012. Sunday, the Continental Bridge opened to pedestrians and cyclists. We were there for the Gospel Brunch, which was part of the Trinity River Revel’s bridge opening celebrations. It was around 12:30 p.m., and though the sun wasn’t at full force, it was out. And it was hot. But the breeze felt great, and the venue couldn’t be beat.Read More

I’ve been to the Buddhist Center of Dallas twice—both times motivated by the amazing spread that can be found there. On Sundays, this hidden temple serves some of the best Thai food in Dallas. Elderly ladies and gentleman set up food stalls in a backyard food court area and make food to order. There’s spicy, fresh papaya salad and grilled meats. The only catch? You need a translator to help you order.
It’s always been one of my favorite, secret spots. One that I’ve been hesitant to share with you readers until now. But it looks like the Buddhist Center of Dallas is ready to let the rest of the community know what a gem it is. On May 24 and 25, it’s hosting a Thai Culture and Food Festival. There’s free admission for two days of food, dance, and a look into the beautiful culture. We sent our photographer Louie Solomon to catch some of the highlights from the press preview last week. Take a look.Read More
