There are plenty of reasons to visit The Big D. Texas barbecue is world renowned. Southern Hospitality is awfully welcoming. The Cowboys live next door, Mavericks are often spotted running through the streets, Old Monks abound (they love to chat), while the big city plays host to hundreds of cultural attractions - JFK memorials, beautiful museums, and even the odd green space. But the best reason of all to come down South is to get closer to those elusive Velcro Pygmies.

The Old Monk is a popular Dallas pub with an excellent beer list and an eclectic pub grub menu. Old Monk also hosts numerous tap takeover events throughout the year, and I hear their Oktoberfest bash is a big one. The steamed mussels are a...

I meant to take a nice photo of my gastro spread, but I tucked into it without thinking. Blissfully good Mexican grub has that effect on me. In Dallas less than three hours, I was told by half a dozen people that I couldn't miss the Blue Goose. I...

After treating myself to happy hour at one Henderson Ave hotspot after the other, and a savory fiesta at the Blue Goose Cantina, I went in search of respite at Good Records in Greenville. It was at Good Records that I first met Smile Smile, The...

As proof that Dallasites aren’t all about the carnivore life, this downtown market has been peddling farm-fresh veggies, dairy, and more since 1941. What started as a small horse-and-wagon wholesale market is now a 26,000-square-foot hall...

The lines are long (expect to wait at least an hour) at this young barbecue joint tucked inside the Dallas Farmers' Market—but the tender, perfectly smoked meats are worth the wait says Daniel Vaugh, barbecue editor of Texas Monthly. "They have...

Since its founding in 1903, the DMA (as locals call it) has grown to become one of the top 10 largest museums in the country, with a permanent collection of over 24,000 works culled from around the globe and spanning over 5,000 years of history....

Philip Johnson's simple concrete memorial to the late president is controversial in the very face of that simplicity, but I found it to be a fitting, moving tribute. The open tomb, known as a cenotaph, is an ode to JFK's free spirit. Nothing wrong...

When President John F. Kennedy was shot in Dallas in November 1963, the world was introduced to the Texas School Book Depository building, which became the primary crime scene for the assassination. It was from a sixth-floor window in this brick...
