Mamma Mia at Brick Road Theatre

My regular readers know what a huge theatre fan I am. You can take the girl off the stage but you can never take the stage outta the girl. I’ve been blown away by every show I’ve seen at Brick Road Theatre and Mamma Mia! is no exception. In fact it’s so good, I saw…

The Dallas Opera Patron Party

I felt like the luckiest girl in Dallas last night frolicking in the epic gardens of Roxanne and Gene Phillips, who opened up their stunning home for The Dallas Opera Patron Party featuring Bulgari. The soirée is hosted as a thank you to donors prior to The Dallas Opera‘s First Sight / First Night (presented…

A Staycation at Fairmont Dallas

My regular readers know that I’m a huge fan of Fairmont Hotels but I had never been inside Fairmont Dallas! I decided to have a little staycation the weekend of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra Gala with my friend Wendy Darling so that we didn’t both have to drive an hour at midnight after the ball….

Crazy Rich Asians Dallas Premiere

What a night! I’m interrupting my usual food content to tell you about a very special night. Crazy Rich Asians is one of my favorite book series. My mom and I screamed when we found out they were making a movie so imagine how hard I screamed when I got invited to the Dallas premiere…

Poke O

Hawaii’s famous raw fish dish is taking Dallas by storm with poke places popping up all over the city. If you haven’t heard of poke (which rhymes with okay) before, it’s super fresh raw fish tossed with veggies and typically served over rice. If you like sushi, you’ll like poke. A huge poke fan myself,…

Last week I had the pleasure of checking out Ziziki’s at The Star (6765 Winning Drive, Suite 800, Frisco, Texas 75034) with my friend Wendy Darling.

The Victory Cup: My First Polo Match

Prior to Saturday, I had never seen polo before and was so excited for my first match. I took some friends to The Victory Cup at Prestonwood Polo Club in Oak Point, TX, about an hour west of Dallas. It’s an all-day event, but my friends and I got there early since everything that came…

Scarborough Renaissance Festival

Mermaids and jousting and King’s Nuts, oh my! Just south of Dallas lies one of the largest and most beloved Renaissance Festivals in the country. Handsome knights on horseback, mermaid lagoons, a vast array of entertainment on a whopping twenty-seven stages: Scarborough Renaissance Festival has it all. For over thirty years, people have flocked to Waxahachie…

An Evening with Dallas Symphony Orchestra

There’s something about the sounds of a symphony that transports me to another place, another time. I get lost in the music as it swells and dances from note to note. I am eternally grateful that I happen to live so close to one of the most renowned symphonies in the country, Dallas Symphony Orchestra….
