Townhomes in Plano Texas might not be what you think

Posted by    |    April 26th, 2011 at 6:38 pm

As a multiple home owner in the past, I have been very biased on purchasing a home over a townhome. Until yesterday.

I visited a Plano townhome community that definitely opened my eyes. Located near Park and the Tollroad, I had seen the signs many times driving by close to Prestonwood church. My thought was to give the community a chance and see if there were any opportunities for an investor to possibly contract on a model lease back from the builder. (more…)

Pint-Size People Can Change The World: SLANT 45

Posted by    |    April 17th, 2011 at 9:02 pm

It doesn’t take a million dollars. It doesn’t take 23 hours a day. It doesn’t take a lifestyle change. What are we talking about here? Giving back! I know I get caught up in the “day to day” and at times become concerned about things that are not all that grandiose. Never did I think a movie about children collecting cans for a food drive to feed the homeless or covering up graffiti on their school walls would be so incredible. I was wrong. One of the films at Angelika in Plano during the Dallas International Film Festival was SLANT 45 The Movie (Service Learning Adventures in North Texas) which premiered the weekend of Super Bowl XLV here in Dallas this year. What kinds of service-learning projects did these little heroes undertake? (more…)

The Angelika Film Center in Plano at the Shops at Legacy was a mecca of buzz this weekend for “Planoites”. After days of premieres and red carpets across Dallas, it was now time for films to travel up the tollway and share the glam. Movie buffs, film students, date-nighters and the like all had pie-eyes and smiles at the festivities taking place. Read on to see opinions of the best place in Plano to film a movie! (more…)

International Woman of Mystery and Her Destination Restaurant, Plano-Style

Posted by    |    April 2nd, 2011 at 12:08 pm

I know what you’re thinking. What person who has traveled and lived around the globe could possibly think a suburb would house this so called “destination restaurant?” Well, as a resident with dual citizenship (definition: living in North Dallas on the border of Plano), I can confidently tell you that Jasper’s at the flawless Shops at Legacy is said utopia! We overheard a waiter telling his table that Jasper’s really is a destination restaurant. People come from all over for one specific thing they’ve fallen in love with and they come back time and time again. This haven for “gourmet backyard cuisine” is just that destination.


fresh oysters + cold beer + awesome lineup = oysterfest.

Hmmmmm.  A music festival in Frisco called Oysterfest…after the BP disaster?  I realize that this sounds like a terrible idea for several reasons…but it’s not.  And here’s why:

Lochrann’s Pub in Frisco has been holding a live music series every Thursday night in an effort to develop Frisco’s Main Street drag as an arts / entertainment district.  Thanks to successfully booking some pretty well known local artists, it’s working.  Again, I know what you’re thinking – cutting edge music + Frisco = not so much.  But a few months ago I caught The Burning Hotels, and weeks later Smile Smile…for free…at a cocktail table inches away from the stage…while drinking $8 pitchers of beer.  Because the bands they were booking have such a large and loyal cult following, word spread.  The effort was so well received in fact, that they eventually added Friday night sets – and soon began planning an outdoor festival.


Just…keep the kids away from the bar.

Have you ever dropped your kids off at a party, and wished you could have stayed? Not for the sole purpose of supervising your kids, but to hang out, play some games, and indulge in that oh-so-tempting slice of pizza? Well now, you can drop your kids off at the party, and have some fun of your own. At Main Event in Plano, the kids will go crazy for laser tag and a plethora of arcade games while grown-ups can gather in the bowling alley, or play a game of pool in the billiard room. Main Event has Summer fun bowling leagues for the die-hard fans.There’s even a full-service bar. Yes I said it, a bar (cue sigh of relief). So grab the kids, their friends, your friends, and your friend’s friends, hop in the car, and head to the place where you’ll all have fun. And yes, there will be pizza.

Behind The Scenes with Y+D at the FC Dallas v. Réal Salt Lake City Game

Posted by    |    July 26th, 2010 at 12:21 pm

Last week, I hung out with the crew at You+Dallas at the FC Dallas v. Real Salt Lake City game while they shot footage for the Futbol Fever video and another project. My partners in crime during this shoot were Aaron Gentry, DP; Dan Baumgartner, 2nd Camera; and Bubba Willis, 3rd Camera.

We showed up to Pizza Hut Park in Frisco a couple hours early to get the cameras set up and get direction from Aaron.

One group of rabid fans were braving the punishment of the direct sunlight. Thankfully, Aaron found a larger group of fans who were tailgating under the protection of the shade in Pink Park so we packed up and headed that direction. Here’s the report:
