From wine to Raman Noodles, the Urban Market provides supermarket items in the comfort of a small convenient store setting.

According to the Urban Market website, they are the only full-service grocery store serving the downtown Dallas area.

Along with its stocked shelves of popular name-brand items, Urban Market plays host to a café with delicious-looking foods on the menu.

Urban Market has two locations. I explored the one located at 1409 South Lamar in the basement of the red South Side building.

What I loved about this place is its convenience. Residents who live in the lofts on the floors above can be at the market in as long as it takes to push a button and call the elevator. (more…)

Rock On

Rockers, emo kids, and 80’s enthusiasts, it’s time to bust out your favorite ripped jeans, flat irons, and parachute pants, and rock out at the Palladium Ballroom on South Lamar. This summer’s line-up boasts a wicked cool array of artists that are best seen in the Palladium’s lax atmosphere. Artists such as The Silversun Pickups, Against Me!, Shwayze, Vampire Weekend, and even Billy Idol will grace the stage in the months to come. So throw on your checkered Vans and race over to hear the sweet sounds of summer.
