Get Registered for the 2013 Lone Star Ride Fighting AIDS

Posted by    |    May 30th, 2013 at 5:04 pm

A nice bike ride is good for the soul, but when it helps raise funds for three Tarrant and Dallas County AIDS service organizations, Lone-Star-Bike-Ride fighting aidswell that’s even better. The Lone Star Ride is a grassroots, participant-produced one-day bicycle rally to raise funds for the cause. This year’s event is co-hosted by South Side on Lamar, NYLO Dallas South Side Hotel and Gilley’s Dallas.

The ride will take place on September 28, 2013, but bicycle enthusiasts are invited to a Lone Star Bike Ride Social this Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the Janette Kennedy Gallery. Get registration and volunteer information and meet local riders while you sip and snack on cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.

Full Circle Tavern – South Side’s New Hot (Sandwich) Spot

After finally snagging a table to enjoy our free barbeque sandwiches and beer at last night’s opening of Full Circle Tavern, my friend and I both began to wonder, “Why aren’t there more restaurants over here?”

South Side’s new cool place to grab a beer or a sandwich (but like craft beer and gourmet sandwiches) is located in between the equally cool NYLO hotel and Gilley’s. Their aptly named grand opening, “Rollin’ with the Homies,” was jam packed with the friendly hipsters that tend to frequent the area along with Full Circle Tavern gals Jennifer Bonner and Lara Whittington. It was casual, music-filled, and completely welcoming.

Dale-Earnhardt-Jr-JrThis 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
