As a junior at SMU, exploring Dallas during the weekends is something that comes naturally at this point. No more staying on campus and going to the same ole-same ole lunch places and no more just going to see a movie. My friends and I are all about trying new restaurants, bars and exploring Dallas.
This weekend we did exactly that. A bit of a spontaneous weekend for me, but really relaxing at the same time. We started the weekend off on Thursday evening at Coal Vines with some of my best girl friends. Yep, the weekend starts on Thursday. If you didn’t know it already, it’s the goal to not schedule classes on Fridays—and if you do have class Fridays, you better be prepared to be pretty tired. But, we wanted a more relaxed Thursday evening. At Coal Vines I started off with my favorite (prosecco) and we all shared two large pizzas. I tried a salad on the side—the Mesculin Greens. It came with mixed field greens, green apples, montrachet, cranberries and bacon Dijon vinaigrette. Mmmm it was so delicious I know I will go back there just for that awesome salad.
