Happy Hour on the Rooftop SODA Bar – NYLO Dallas South Side

Posted by    |    September 28th, 2012 at 4:57 pm

In honor of our second consecutive Dallas Observer ‘Best Dallas Website’ win last week, YouPlusDallas took to the roof of the new NYLO Dallas South Side to celebrate. Apart from having arguably the coolest view of Dallas, the rooftop hosts an infinity pool, a foosball table, a fire pit and some seriously tasty appetizers and cocktails. The French 75 was fantastic and the Soda Bar’s cheese plate is top notch.  You can never go wrong with a cheese plate.

We enjoyed a little after work chitchat.

Dallas Designers Come Together “For Whitney” – 9.18.12

Posted by    |    September 17th, 2012 at 4:01 pm

A symbol of perseverance and faith, Whitney Mitchell is truly a role model for her generation. In November of 2010, Whitney became gravely ill with sepsis from an infection and was put on life support. Both arms and legs had to be amputated in order to save her life. Instead of giving up, Whitney has shown incredible courage over the past couple of years and continues to be a symbol of strength.

The “For Whitney” Fashion Show and Fundraiser in Southside on Lamar honors and supports the inspirational young woman with a runway show, silent auction and raffle. The runway show features designers Abi Ferrin, Izavel, Shona, and Elizabeth Anyaa, with a live performance by The Maylee Thomas Band. Hors d’oeurves provided by Lombardi’s Catering, Luna de Noche, Eddie Deen Catering, and So Savvy Events with cocktails including Monticello Wines and Heineken. TV personality/host/model/actress, LeeAnne Locken, will serve as the Mistress of Ceremonies.
