Texas by way of Tennessee + Virginia.


Made a solo move to Dallas in 2012 and fell in love with absolutely everything.

What started as a simple $100 giveaway celebrating reaching 20,000 followers on Instagram turned into an even bigger idea as I started to see my loyal, local Dallas following begin tagging their favorite Dallas restaurants, bars, coffee shops, bakeries, salons and boutiques. The little hamster wheel inside my brain started turning and I thought, wait!, why don't I turn this into a complete local's guide to Dallas?? So, that's just what I've done. I've co...

Looking for a great burger in Dallas? What if I told you there was an amazing burger joint right in the heart of uptown that offered.... wait for it.... FREE PARKING!?!? I probably shouldn't have lead with all that amazing info, you might not even stick around to read my post. Hopefully I still have your attention and you haven't jumped in the car yet.  

I visited the perfectly shaded patio this weekend at Hopdoddy in Uptown on McKinney ave. Although...

The Halal Guys - on Lemmon Ave - is a spot I'd heard so much about, but hadn't visited yet. What started as a hot dog cart in The Big Apple, has since become the most popular spot for American Halal food. The Halal Guys in NYC are famous for their chicken and gyro over rice, and that's exactly what they're now serving up on Greenville Ave.

Although I love NYC, I love Dallas more and the Halal Guys being right here in Texas saves me from dealing with...

Now, I live in the heart of Dallas, but I feel like I can't scroll more than 3 instas without hearing about another new restaurant opening in Plano. Plano is quickly becoming a foodie's dream, and most certainly worth the 20-30 minutes (non rush hour, of course) drive from Dallas. If you're looking for a great place to eat in Plano, look no further than the new True Food Kitchen at Legacy West. 

If you don't want to drive, there is also a True Food Kitche...

As someone who waited tables for nearly ten years through high school, college and even after college, certain employee actions tip me off on if I'm going to like a restaurant or not. For example, I'm a firm believer if someone works at a restaurant and LOVES eating there too, then you're more than likely going to love it.

I had the pleasure of visiting Super Chix in Dallas a couple of weeks ago and the first thing that jumped out at me was just how obse...

We are smack dab in the middle of those coveted Spring Dallas days, where it isn't blazing sun that causes you to melt the second you step out your front door. Over the past couple of years, these days were even more precious, because of torrential downpours that seemingly lasted all of April and May. You blink, and these *perfect* days of sunshine and a nice, light breeze slip from your hands and we are in the dead of Summer. Take advantage, go have a p...

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of attending the Boots and Beer Dinner at House of Blues. This dinner was a collaborative effort between the excellent chefs at House of Blues, and the crisp, flavorful beer produced by Karbach Brewing Co. out of Houston. 

The HOB chefs and the beer makers at Karbach worked hand in hand to bring the guests that evening a well thought out and planned four course meal. Each course was built to pair perfectly with a s...

Get in your car and drive just a a few miles up 75 from Downtown Dallas and you'll find a new restaurant and bar in the Westin Park Central called Urban South Dine + Bar 1865

Now, I travel for work relatively often -- no joke, sitting in a hotel in Vancouver at the hotel bar writing this as we speak. Side note, Vancouver and Dallas are having exactly the same weather right now, what is wrong with this picture? Much like the bar I'm c...

A couple of weeks ago I had the opportunity to join in on a Dallas Food Tour. Whether you live here, or are just visiting the Big D, if you're looking for fun things to do in Dallas, I absolutely suggest taking a Dallas Food Tour. You'll hit 4 of the best, hottest restaurants in Dallas, while simultaneously sightseeing and learning about our great city. There are four different Dallas Food Tours available: West Village Restaurant HopUptown Foodie Walk,...

I absolutely love everything about Dallas. Although I was not born here, I've been a Dallas resident for 4 years, with absolutely no plans of ever leaving! I thought a great idea for a blog post would be to show you exactly how I would spend a perfect day, a full 24 hours, in Dallas, Texas.  Here are the best things I would do in Dallas if I had no plans and 24 blissful hours off of work.

No great morning ever s...
