Downtown Orchard Opens this Thursday in Dallas

Posted by    |    September 24th, 2013 at 1:45 pm


What’s not to love about a farmer’s market? Getting to go out on weekends and browse through locally grown produce and hand made goods is one of the most enjoyable experiences you can have shopping for food. But there is one thing about farmers markets that is frustrating and that’s the fact that they only happen on weekends, and only on certain weekends at that. But that’s not to say they’re not worth waiting for, except what happens when you want farmer’s market quality food but the farmer’s market is closed?

That’s where Urban Orchard comes in. Unlike the typical food store chains Urban Orchard establishes relationships with local farmers and food artisans to bring people farmer’s market freshness on a daily basis, and this week they’re coming to downtown Dallas! Now you can enjoy farm fresh food options any time you’re downtown, whether your looking for a place to grab some lunch or you need to stock up your fridge, Urban Orchard will have everything your organic food loving heart desires.

Come by this Thursday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and celebrate Urban Orchard’s grand opening and be one of the first to see what goods they’ve got in stock and curb that farmer’s market craving.

When: Thursday, September 26th

Where: 1500 Jackson St Dallas, TX 75201

The Face of Big Tex

Posted by    |    May 23rd, 2013 at 4:33 pm

Ever since that sad day in Texas history when Big Tex caught fire and burned down right before our eyes our spirits have been kept lifted by the fact that Big Tex will return. Throughout Big Tex’s reconstruction State Fair officials have been keeping us updated on his progress with short clips that show the computer design process of his various body parts. So far we’ve seen his hand, his head and now in the most recent installment we see his face.

It seems like they’re sticking pretty close Tex’s original face especially the creepy factor. But hey it wouldn’t be the Big Tex we know and love if he wasn’t just a little creepy looking, it’s all part of his charm and we love him for it.

Mother’s Day at the DMA

There will be plenty of Mother’s Day brunches in Dallas to choose from, but wouldn’t it be right up your mother’s alley to spend the atrium-caferest of the day strolling around the Dallas Museum of Art? Soak up some culture catching some of the DMA’s newest exhibits as well as the works of Marc Chagall during the final month of the Beyond Color exhibit. You may even burn off some of brunch calories; walking is great exercise, no matter how slow.

Celebrate Mother’s Day at the DMA with a special Mother’s Day Brunch in the Museum’s Atrium. Sunday’s brunch features a carving station, made to order omelets, crepes made to order, and an interactive Bloody Mary and Mimosa Bar.
