Hunting Velcro Pygmies

Map View
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...

Capitol Pub is another great adventure along North Henderson Avenue. I think it took me five hours to walk down this one short street... I ordered up a couple plates of Texas cheese, a pint of Revolver beer, and asked the barman to mix me...

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...

My visit to the Dallas Farmers Market began on the Green Mile early in the morning. Too early, in fact, for anyone else to be out and shopping. It's a quiet, peaceful place to spend a few hours on a Saturday morning. I was surprised at just how...

The line coursing through the Dallas Farmers Market says it all: There's some serious food here. Folks queue up early for some epic 'cue, and Pecan Lodge, with a slew of accolades, is among the best in the city, even earning top honors from Texas...

On the third Friday of each month, something magical happens at the DMA: art-lovers are welcome to stay and stroll well past its usual closing time. Special programming, ranging from lectures to musical and dance performances reign, as the museum...

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...

The famed and former Texas School Book Depository is a must-visit at least once for any visitor to Dallas. The permanent exhibit creates a portrait of the mood of the country during JFK's presidency up until the time of his assassination. The...
