The moment you walk up to Off-Site Kitchen you feel proud to be an American.  I haven’t been to a restaurant (that wasn’t on a military base) that showed the amount of red, white, and blue to support our past and present soldiers.

Beertender, I’ll have Another Martooni… What City Am I In Again?!? Hotel Bars: A Place of Refuge for the Weary Traveler

Even though the U.S. has had its warmest winter in recorded history, many of our Northern friends and family are looking for an excuse to get down here to the Texas Tropical Sun Belt to soak up a little of our warm Southern weather and hospitality.

Taste Addison is one of those events that you have to go to if you consider yourself a Dallasite.  It’s hot, it’s fun, it’s good old fashioned face-stuffing at it’s finest.  Where else can you explore the city’s best restaurants all in one place all weekend long?  In case you’re worried about parking or crowds, don’t be.  The second you taste the food, you’ll forget about anything else.  Don’t believe me? Check out this.
