This Friday, Dallas welcomes the Detroit indie duo Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. to the Loft at Gilley’s Dallas, and let’s give them a warm Texas welcome shall we? They deserve it for making some fun tracks that will fit perfectly with the summer time fun that’s on its way. Their new track If you didn’t see me (You weren’t on the dance floor) should definitely be on one if not all your your summer playlists this year. It’s a fun, breezy tune with a good beat and a little bit of sass that elicits images of nights spent workin’ up a sweat under rainbow lights.
The rest of the songs on their new EP, entitled Patterns, follow a similar sound with a couple that are a little slower and emotional but none that come off as too heavy for a warm nights spent dancing with friends

After relocating his entire headquarters to Dallas, Michael Mueller, President and CEO of NYLO Hotels, is the perfect example of why North Texas is a growing and welcoming market.
Mueller, along with Jack Matthews and Donnie Nelson, recently spoke at an event for CEOLink, a Texas non-profit member based organization that acts as a welcome committee for CEOs that have relocated to Texas.
Full Circle Tavern, a modern pub with a neighborhood feel, is opening in South Side in mid-April adjacent to Bill’s Records and across from Cedars Social.
From Jennifer Bonner and Lara Whittington of EdiblEnvy Catering, the relaxed pub is sure to become a neighborhood favorite. An extensive craft beer list, hearty sandwiches, vegetarian options, and rotating chips flavors like “truffle” and “Bloody Mary” should ensure that.
“We’re excited to become part of the South Lamar community and can’t wait to share our delicious food and ‘everyone-knows-your-name’ style with our neighbors. Our friends will tell you we love to laugh and have a good time, so we want FCT to reflect that,” says Lara.
In honor of their new brand campaign, “Big Things Happen Here,” the Dallas Convention & Visitor Bureau is hosting a social media campaign for locals to explore their city and capture photos of some of the most prominent areas in Dallas.
The new campaign reflects the many changes that have taken place over the past 18 months, including the continued development of the Arts District, the opening of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, the completion of Klyde Warren Park, and of course, the NYLO hotel in South Side.
Dallas CVB has placed a life-size “B” and “G” in prime locations throughout the metroplex, prompting locals to become the “I” and share their photos via social media using the hashtag #DallasBIG. The NYLO was chosen as one of the locations for the intallations, along with Klyde Warren Park, Main Street Garden, Reunion Tower, Omni Dallas, Deep Ellum, The Perot Museum and more.
When The Beat first opened in 2007, South Side Dallas looked a little different than it does today. A sketch of what the area might look included a boutique hotel across the street (the NYLO), a new police headquarters next door, and a luxury hotel (the Omni) connected to the convention center down the road. Those vague drawings have since become a reality, and there’s more to come.
This is what sets The Beat apart from so many other loft apartment towers in Dallas. That, competitive prices, and unbelievable views of downtown Dallas. For those who are still skeptic of South Side, Jack Matthews’ developments in the area should certainly set minds at ease.
