In times of difficulty, help an Oklahoman neighbor out. Go eat.
Before I launch into a post about beer and boozy fun, I’d like to take this moment and thank the people who have served/still serve our country. While most of us see Memorial Day as a “YAY WE DON’T HAVE TO GO TO WORK LET’S PARTY” day, there are families out there visiting graves and [...]
Nick Badovinus just emailed the news. He’s opening a second location of Off-Site Kitchen in “the blue building on Singleton” in the fall. He says he’s glad to be back in business with Phil Romano, co-owner of Trinity Groves. Romano gave Badovinus his first job as an executive chef at the ill-fated We/Oui or was [...]
Sorry for the short report. I’m not leaving any farmers markets off this list on purpose. Sheila Dang, our intern who was writing these, is off to bigger and better things. Sad face. Coppell Farmers Market: ”The Coppell Farmers Market is hitting the Memorial Day week-end with more of the summer produce showing up. Summer squash, [...]
Oh. My. God. Teresa “Gubbshoe” Gubbins has uncovered the startling news. I will not steal her thunder because her story is deliciously funny. I supposed hoarders are selling on eBay.
As summer heat swiftly approaches (and the grueling hours you spent in your ab roller finally come to fruition), it’s time to give your body something besides anger and frustration to sweat out under the hot Texas sun. Whether it’s beside the pool, near the grill, or just relaxing your beautifully toned body on a [...]
Happy Friday, SideDishers! What tasty foods did you eat and where did you dine this week? Tell us the good, bad, and the ugly. Here’s what you wrote last week.
The Dallas Morning News reported yesterday that the Dallas City Council approved a plan to grant Rudy’s Chicken, a fried chicken restaurant, $890,000. “The money will go towards the development of a new Rudy’s Chicken building – part of a larger development by City Wide Community Development Corporation to create a new $3.4 million Lancaster Urban [...]

Last night’s 100 Best Restaurants party couldn’t have been more perfect. So many underrated restaurants (like Mr. Wok Asian Bistro in Plano) came out of their ‘burby shells and celebrated the release of our June issue, 100 Best Restaurants in Dallas, with us. It’s on newsstands today. Go get yourself a copy. A huge shout-out [...]
Today marks one of the best reasons to celebrate – World Chardonnay Day….an entire day devoted to the luscious Burgundian grape that has transformed the way people drink wine throughout the world, as Chardonnay is the most popular white in the US and one of the most planted throughout the globe. Over 800 different types [...]
Well, damnit. This is sad news: Escondido, the tiny, family-run Tex-Mex joint on Butler Street closed last Friday. Damn it. I knew they were struggling. Last December I spoke with owner Juan Herrera and he said they’d already closed their dinner service because business turned bad after The Salvation Army Carr P. Collins Social Service Center opened across from [...]
It’s been awhile since we’ve talked about chicken fried steak. Today comes word from a gal who has friends coming in from New York and they want to eat CFS all weekend. Nice. Hey, Nancy. I know you get a lot of requests and this is late but please consider asking your audience for help. [...]
People ask me what Nancy looks like all the time. Usually I make sh*t up and hem and haw my way past that question until we start talking about the weather. Well, the truth is Nancy has pink skin, hooves for hands, and big cartoonish eyes. She’s got a tail that wags when she’s happy [...]
