Ready, set, make your reservations! For many of Dallas’ dining elite, KRLD Restaurant Week is the holy grail of foodie events. Save the date for August 16-22. What could be better than a prix fixe three-course meal for a mere $35 a person at more than 120 first-rate restaurants in North Texas? It’s become a savory summer tradition that we can’t resist. Make your reservation early at Stephan Pyles so you can experience his famous Southwestern cuisine for a steal of a deal. Other participating restaurants include Samar, Abacus, and Fearings. Restaurant Week newbies, consider yourself warned: reservations are required. For details on KRLD Restaurant Week and how you can help North Texas Food Bank, visit the Arts and Entertainment page of

If a moderately priced meal at an amazing restaurant isn’t reason enough to check out KRLD Restaurant Week, how about contributing to a very worthy cause? The North Texas Food Bank needs your help more than ever. Summer is the hungriest time for kids because they don’t have access to free school breakfasts and lunches. If you want to lend a hand, it’s as simple as stuffing your face with some of the best grub in Dallas. For each prix fixe dinner purchased during Restaurant Week, participating restaurants will make a $7 donation to the North Texas Food Bank to benefit the 53,000 families they serve every month.

The Bikini Body Sculpt at Equinox uses a combination of Barre, hand weights, and cardio intervals to work on all of your target areas. This high-intensity specialty class will have you sweating your way to a leaner, healthier you. We think the sexiest thing you can wear to the beach is confidence. For more information, visit

We can’t think of anything better than listening to live music under the stars and sipping a cold beer on a warm summer night in Texas. Mark your calendar for Jazz By The Boulevard on September 10 and 11 on the tree-lined lawn of the Will Rogers Memorial in Fort Worth’s beautiful Cultural District. Jazz By The Boulevard celebrates Cowtown’s rich legacy of jazz. You can expect a comprehensive jazz education as the festival features all types of jazz, from classic and big band to Latin beats and rhythm and blues. This year legendary jazz bassist Stanley Clarke will head an all-star lineup. For details on Jazz By The Boulevard, visit and follow Metroplex Cadillac Dealers on Facebook for late breaking news.

Before heading to Jazz by the Boulevard, stop by the Kimbell Art Museum since you’ll be in the neighborhood. The Kimbell is the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon. The building and grounds are gorgeous and their small collection is impressive but not overwhelming. An exciting new exhibition opens on August 29. Check out Fiery Pool: The Maya and the Mythic Sea which features over 90 works by Mayan artists that detail how intertwined their lives were with water. We are looking forward to seeing the massive, carved stone monuments and lavish goods crafted from jade, gold, and turquoise. Admission is free. For more information, visit
