When you pass the 505 Riverfront property alongside the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, you’ll see an ambiguous list of possibilities as to what plans for the space will actually be, one of which includes gambling.

Is a casino actually a possibility in Dallas? Well, not now anyway. After a little Google magic, our skyrocketing hopes were dashed across the vast plot of land. In this video from NBC 5 DFW, 505 Riverfront investor Dale Foster admits that the list of possibilities along the property are just a way to “dress the site up” in the hope of attracting things that will help the area look like Uptown, which could include a casino if Texas ever makes that legal.

Ladies, Strap on those Sky High Heels, the Stiletto Strut is Back!

If a woman were to have only one pair of shoes in her closet (gasp!), it should be a pair of killer stilettos. Preferably platforms, according to Senior Vice President and Fashion Director of Neiman Marcus Ken Downing. “The platform has transcended trend, because when you get three or four extra inches, who wants to give it up?”

The 6th annual Neiman Marcus’ Stiletto Strut is absolutely about rocking a pair of sky highs, but it’s also about raising awareness and money for The Family Place, an organization aspiring to end family violence since 1978. The stylish event brings hundreds of gals to the streets of downtown Dallas for a sassy walk down Main Street. The event originated in Dallas, but stilettos are now being strutted all across the country.
