Dining: Cowboy Chow

Posted by    |    October 7th, 2010 at 11:49 am

In a generic world starved for authentic culture, Cowboy Chow is a treasure. To even write about it I must adapt my prairie girl persona and advise you not to walk, but amble into Cowboy Chow, where the only meal is a hearty meal.  Note the “bride and groom” buffalo heads on the wall, the warm, welcoming smiles from the plaid-wearin’ staff, and the country music that gets your toe tappin’.  Do yourself the favor of betting on a fried green tomato lollipop to start off with; yes, I mean literally place a bet on your food and cut cards when the check comes … if you win, it’s on them!   You can be as bad as you want when ordering off the menu, or go straight for the heart healthier, all buffalo menu.  Sweet watermelon tea is my favorite, but they have a great selection of beer, wine, cocktails, even homemade whiskeys and tequilas.

I am what you call a “dog person.” For now, my children are all of the four-legged variety, and I love ‘em madly. So, like any caring mom, I get excited about new pet stuff in the neighborhood. Do you feel bad walking out the door for work and leaving your cute pooch behind?  Or think they need a few friends to play with on the weekend?  Have you been putting off giving your dog a bath because it overwhelms you?  Look no further, Urban Paws can come to your rescue!

Urban Paws is the newest pet retreat in Deep Ellum.  They offer dog boarding, daycare, grooming, and training.  With over 19,000 square feet of oversized townhomes, indoor and outdoor parks, your pet will love being there as a second home.

If you need a smile, check out their photo albums.  Here are a few of my favorites:

Today I saw peace and innocence from Deep Ellum’s murals.  I parked my car by the Dart station and just took in the surrounding art.

Let’s talk supernatural beings. For the past two years, Seattle and London have been battling for that oh-so-prestigious title of City With Most Zombies. Evidently having something like 4,000 “semi-dead” dragging around your streets is pretty impressive.  What the Limeys and Grungesters don’t know is that Dallas is about to bite their record right out of Guinness’ Book.  As of today, Dallas has more than 3,500 people “attending” its upcoming Zombie Walk and another 4,200 deciding if they have enough fake blood to act the part.
