A favorite Texan pastime is sitting on a patio drinking a marg and munching on chips n’ queso. Maybe we’re a bit partial, but we’re proud to say Dallas is home to some of the best margaritas out there. Frozen, on the rocks, salt, no salt, top-shelf or house – however you like it, Dallas has you tequila-lovers covered. With patio season approaching and National Margarita Day coming up, (although that may be every day in this city) we’ve rounded up some of our favorite Dallas margs.
Having lived in Dallas (and Texas) the majority of my life, the margarita is a staple in mine and Lexi’s routine. Sunny day? Let’s go have a marg. Long day at work? Let’s definitely go have a marg (or two). I’m pretty sure a margarita is the answer to all of life’s questions, especially in Dallas, which all of you can thank for inventing the frozen margarita. You can find the home of the frozen marg and more of our local favorites in our round-up of cant-miss Dallas margaritas.
No matter your current relationship status, I think we can all agree everyone LOVES a reason to eat, drink and celebrate. Whether you’re single as can be, crazy in love, or bitter from a break-up – Dallas bars and restaurants have something to fit your needs this Valentine’s Day.
If you can’t make it to any of the Carnivals across the country to celebrate the actual Mardi Gras, there are plenty of events in Dallas to make up for it. We’re having a hard time picking our favorites or which ones to go to – um, anyone up for a bar crawl? Hope to see y’all out and about, with a Hurricane (or two) in hand. Laissez les bon temps roulez, y’all.
There is no shortage of things to do in Dallas this month, but just in case you didn’t have enough options, or don’t know how you’re going to spend Sunday watching the big game, we’ve compiled a list of fun things to do below. All of them include copious amounts of booze and food, because I’m pretty sure that’s the point of the Super Bowl?
And, if you’re going to someone’s house to watch the game, we HIGHLY recommend bringing this cheesy, creamy artichoke dip with soft pretzel sticks, this s’mores puppy chow, these perfect double chocolate chip cookies, or some zesty chex mix – actually, take it all.
How are we already a month into 2016? Please tell us we’re not the only ones still writing “2015” on all of our paperwork. That’ll most likely continue for another two months…at least. There’s a ton to do in Dallas this month (as usual), so check out some events on our radar, and you’ll have no excuse to be bored.
Keep your eye out for special lists highlighting, where to watch the big game, Fat Tuesday celebrations and what to do for V Day!
Got anything you think we should add? Hit us up!
One of the things Lexi and I get asked about most is how we travel as frequently as we do. And, I know half of the time, that question actually means, “um, how can you afford to travel as much as you do?” Unfortunately for us, the answer is not “because we’re millionaires and make six figures at our day job” – it’s actually quite the opposite.
Am I the only one who is still in the bouts of post-holiday depression? The first week after Christmas and New Years are some of the hardest to get back into a routine (and back to work). Last week was especially hard for us after returning from Germany and visiting our parents. Germany kills it at the whole holiday thing, y’all.
A lot of people ask us what are favorite spot in Dallas is, or what our favorite restaurant is. The answer is quickly becoming the Harwood District, and specifically, Mercat Bistro. I think anyone who has been to both Mercat and Paris will say the tiny bistro tucked away in the Harwood District makes you feel like you’re dining on the side of a quaint Parisian street.
As Buddy the Elf so famously said, during the holidays, we like to stick to the elves’ four main food groups: candy, candy corn, candy canes, and syrup. However, I’m officially adding a fifth and equally important food group he accidentally forgot: Christmas cookies!
