BonChon, a place for Korean fried chicken, is open on Greenville Avenue. Take note: It was packed like sardines last night.

Our grand opening is on Wednesday, December 11th. After that, our full-time hours will be from 11 AM to 11 PM Sunday to Thursday, and from 11 AM to midnight on Friday and Saturday.

Until then, if you’re willing to brave the cold, we are doing a limited soft opening from 3 to 11 PM (no lunch service) everyday leading up to our grand opening. Please drive safe and dress warmly!

Masala Wok opens its fourth location in Dallas at 6106 Luther Lane. Expect to see the same menu, same traditional Indian-Asian fare. The restaurant is open from Sunday-Thursday (11 a.m. to 10 p.m.) and Friday-Saturday (11 a.m. to 11 p.m.).

On Sunday, December 15, Dallas’ best bartenders—all 45 of them—are taking over the Standard Pour in Uptown. Cocktails for a Cause is an event that helps raises money for a local charity, Trigger’s Toys. 100% of the proceeds are going toward buying toys for children in hospitals. This pop-up bar will offer $10 cocktails between 6 p.m. and 2 a.m.
