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.

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. For

Health + Wellness Equinox

If you are anything like us, you have had at least one wine-fueled
conversation with your girlfriends about your love-hate relationship
with your bathing suit. So we were delighted to hear about a workout
designed specifically to combat the bumps and bulges that make wearing a
swimsuit a frightening proposition for some. 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 equinox.com.

Music Jazz by the Boulevard

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 fortworthjazz.com

Art + Culture Kimbell Art Museum

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 kimbellart.org.
