ArtWalk2013_web-01 Weekend strolls on sunny afternoons are wonderful things. Weekend strolls on sunny afternoons that involve getting to see fantastic art are even better, and that’s exactly what you’re going to get this Saturday  from 6-10 p.m. if you happen to be strolling through Deep Ellum or Exposition Park. The Deep Ellum Gallery Walk will be back this weekend offering everyone chance to walk through the galleries and studios both in Deep Ellum and Exposition Park. You’ll also be able to partake in some shopping, music, food and drinks, all elements of a good Saturday.

The event is free with most galleries in walking distance of each other, but for those that aren’t, the DART green line will be available to take patrons from the Deep Ellum and Baylor stations to the Fair Park station in Expositoin Park.


LaGrange Closes Its Doors After 3 Years

Posted by    |    November 15th, 2012 at 4:26 pm

Owner, Stephanie Schumacher took to the LaGrange’s Facebook page this morning to announce that:

It’s a sad day! After a long 3 year journey, we are closing our Deep Ellum doors. We can’t thank everyone enough for your support over the last few years. To our wonderful staff, the amazing musicians who came through the door, and all the fans, we thank you! All shows are being relocated if possible to our favorite venues, so please be on the lookout for updates on the page to find out where to see all your favorite bands. Many thanks to Kim Finch and the Doublewide for hosting our shows last night and this evening.

For anyone who was a fan of the elegantly down home venue, this will be a sad farewell. Maybe this video will inspire someone to buy the great little music venue that was designed to be “not uber cool, but cool enough.”

Deep Sushi in Deep Ellum

I love all things sushi, and I’m always looking for new places that are fresh and tasty.

It is really a shame that I had been alive for over two decades before I was introduced to Deep Sushi. Thank goodness someone had the good sense to take me to the holy grail of sushi on Elm Street.

Cleverly named Deep Sushi, the hole-in-the-wall restaurant is tucked away in Deep Ellum, and has been a hit since 1996. It has hosted the likes of Chris Farley and Troy Aikman as well as maintaining a super-loyal following amongst Dallas locals.

I often experiment by trying different combinations of rolls every time I place my order, but there is one constant that I insist I must have every time, no exceptions. This particular must-have comes in the form of the Best Roll. I’m not kidding, it really is called the Best Roll, and it is called that for a reason. In the Best Roll, your palate experiences a magical combination of shrimp tempura, spicy tuna, avocado and cucumber all snuggled together in a light soybean wrap.

 We have been buzzing over Dallas Observer’s ‘Best Of’ Dallas 2011 picks all afternoon.  When I sat down to go through all the winners I was thrilled to see Deep Ellum all over the picks.

Here’s a low down on Dallas Observer’s picks from Deep Ellum.

Uncle Uber’s Sammich Shop

Posted by    |    September 20th, 2011 at 1:54 pm

The YouPlus staffers love going about town for lunch and I steered the group to Uncle Uber’s Sammich Shop yesterday.  It’s brand spankin new and already had a good sized lunch crowd chowing down some yummy sammiches.

The seven of us ordered all over the menu and each made pleasant sounds as we enjoyed our meal.  Reid Slaughter looked joyful when he saw his Smokin Turkey was real “thanksgiving style” turkey and not deli sliced.  Brandon Carmichael had to call his wife and tell her how good his Bacon and Goat Cheese was.  We all stared at Justin Ransom‘s Roast Beef with provolone cheese and said “next time”.  Jun and Jonathan made healthier choices with the Blackened Fish and Veggie BunME and Laura Stillo and me chose the grilled Chicken Breast.  With Hand Cut Fries all around dipped in Smokey Habanero Ranch we all agreed that this will become our consistent go-to lunch spot.

My favorite moment was when one of the prideful employees looked into the dining room full of people and just lit up with a smile ear to ear.  As a Deep Ellum home owner it is so great to see all these new restaurants come in and give us no reason to travel outside of our four streets to eat anything we’re craving.

Keep it up Uber!

Have you been on lately?  It’s FULL of info on everything Deep Ellum.

I’ve been using the site lately to see what restaurants are open late.  My husband and I eat abnormally late and we wait until the last minute to pick a place.  This sometimes can cause panic and the feeling of hopelessness when driving around frantic looking for a place before closing time.  Thankfully, I can now pull up and look under dining for our favorite spots and easily find their times and phone numbers.

The site is also great for real estate (business and personal), art, music, community, even the history of our little neighborhood starting back in the 1800′s.

So go on, give it a look-see…

Pizza Wars

Posted by    |    May 19th, 2011 at 4:14 pm

Deep Ellem is only four streets tall, but the pizza is stacking up to be untouchable.  With Il Cane Rosso and Serious Pizza joining our hood we don’t have to go far for a slice of pizza heaven.

These two pizza kitchens both use dough and sauce made in-house, but couldn’t be farther apart in size as they are in style.  VS

We have on opposing corners of Deep Ellum, Il Cane Rosso on Commerce St.’s left who’s on a mission to bring authentic Neapolitan pizza to Dallas.  With an authentic Neapolitan pizza made according to the strict guidelines of the Associazone Verace Pizza Napoletana – the official quality control watchdogs of true pizza, they are doing just that.  This place is perfect to bring friends from up north to show off Deep Ellum’s more regal side.  The pizzas are personal sized and are done to perfection in their Texas hardwoods fired oven.
