Celebrate Uptown 2013: Taste, Shop, Sip, and Experience the Best that Uptown has to Offer

Posted by    |    April 23rd, 2013 at 9:56 pm


When I was a freshman at SMU, Uptown was an illustrious land. A land of classy bars. A land that used trolleys for transportation. A land of young (hopefully single) professionals. As my friends and I finally hit the 21-year-old milestone, Uptown went from a hopeful dream to a weekend reality. After graduation, most SMU alumni made the great migration to the area, and while not every day has been full of trolley rides and single young professionals, there’s a lot to love about living at an Uptown address, and we’re excited to show the once illustrious land a little love during the 2nd annual Celebrate Uptown.

The three-day event is filled with the best that Uptown has to offer. From Wednesday, April 24 to Friday, April 26, enjoy special dining specials, shopping discounts, and a signature event with food trucks, drinks, and a concert by the ultimate new wave 80s band, The Spazmatics.

Belly & Trumpet Will Begin Sunday Brunch this Weekend

Posted by    |    April 5th, 2013 at 9:34 pm

You’ve probably noticed the elaborately scripted sign for Belly & Trumpet on the quaint little Uptown house that used to house The Bowery. Speaking of which – The Bowery… not so good. Belly & Trumpet… really, really good. But as most new restaurants tend to do, it was only open for dinner when it opened in mid-February. Thankfully, Executive Chef Brian Zenner’s (Chef de Cuisine, Oak) perfectly-balanced and innovative sharable plates will be available for brunch-philes starting this Sunday, April 7, and from the looks of it, it’s going to be really, really good.

“We are striving to extend beyond the ordinary in everything we do.  We are challenging ourselves to be inventive and thoughtful, often taking a classic favorite and adding an exciting twist.  Regardless, our primary goal is for our food to be consistently soulful and delicious, “ explains Zenner.

Enjoy the following drool-worthy photos.
