Dallas In Pop Culture: Luka and Dirk Take Jerry World and Marc Rebillet Spills His Whataburger Order

Plus: For Oak Cliff gifts J. Cole and Dreamville Records with merchandise on the rapper's Dallas tour stop.

Just Two Dallas Mavericks vibin’ at AT&T Stadium. Luka Doncic and Dirk Nowitzki had a guys day out at Jerry World. The two basketball superstars were captured on one of AT&T Stadium’s massive TVs on Sunday’s game against the New York Giants. Meanwhile, Dallasites are eagerly waiting for Jerry Jones to release limited edition Doncic and Nowitzki Cowboys jerseys. (I joke, but Halloween is coming up, so Jerry call me to negotiate a limited run for the dress-up holiday).

Speaking of Halloween! Did y’all see Keenan Thompson’s impression of Ezekiel Elliott on last week’s Saturday Night Live? The comedian impersonated the running back as the boyfriend to “Jourtney” (portrayed by Cecily Strong), the fictional sister to Princess Jasmine (Kim Kardashian) and Aladdin (Pete Davidson). Thompson’s Elliot plays comedic foil to Davidson’s Aladdin, which resulted in him throwing “Lil Al” a signed ball before flying away on a magic carpet. Who knew Lorne Michaels watches the Boys? Can we hop for a Jerry’s World x Saturday Night Live crossover in the future?

“The Sweet n’ Spicy BBQ Burger. It’s like a thick double patty. It’s [redacted] disgusting. You will regret it, but it’s extraordinar,”, exclaims Dallas electronic musician Marc Rebillet, one of the state’s many musicians interviewed by Texas Monthly at Austin City Limits about their go-to order at Whataburger. On your next visit, order the Loop Daddy meal.

Rappers Love Dallas. Three years ago, J. Cole rapped, “Shout out Oak Cliff, I’m bout to fly to Dallas / Decade from now, I might just buy the Mavericks / What’s up Mark Cuban” on the “Album Of The Year” freestyle. That same year, the Grammy winning rapper donated to the nonprofit For Oak Cliff and has since continued the relationship. Ahead of Monday night’s concert, For Oak Cliff donated merchandise to J. Cole and Dreamville Records, his record label. In good faith, the rapper provided box seats to For Oak Cliff at the American Airlines Center for his Off Season Tour.
