Most weekends I’m seeking out a nice brunch outing, I lean toward American breakfast faves — the Benedicts, the French toast, the pancakes. But sometimes a fine international brunch can turn my head, too — and, no, I don’t msean IHOP!
Recently, I was invited for brunch at Pakpao Preston Hollow to try the brunch menu jam-packed with Thai/pan-Asian influences. I couldn’t wait!
Chickadees, I have recently experienced the Uber of massages. And I absolutely loved it!
I know, I know: Everything is the “Uber of something” these days, right? But in this case, it’s the gospel truth: Soothe is an app and website for getting on-demand massages right at home! And by on-demand, I’m talking in as little as an hour.
I recently was offered the chance to take the service out for a spin, in conjunction with Soothe being expanded last month to Honolulu (the service is now in 28 cities). Click on through to learn my thoughts!
Broadway fanatics will have a lot to cheer in the next few weeks, as two hugely popular shows are coming to Dallas. Disney’s dreamy Beauty & The Beast and the girl-group classic Dreamgirls are set to light up stages at the AT&T Performing Arts Center this month and next, and I absolutely can’t wait!
This Sunday is Mother’s Day, and I get a lot of notices about the traditional holiday feast: a buffet with all the usual suspects like seafood bar, carving station(s) and a huge spread of hot and cold mains and sides. Bo. Ring. (There happens to be one single solitary exception … you’ll see!) If you have a foodie mom – the bar’s way higher for you.

Treat her – really treat her – this Saturday and/or Sunday to a meal at some of the best restaurants in the city. Pick any one of these, and you’ll do well. Just call ahead to make sure there’s still availability!
The discount treatment extravaganza known as Spa Week is coming back to Dallas next week — are you ready to relax? While the annual nationwide promotion (April 11-17) is highlighting how spa treatments can relieve technology-related conditions — think sore shoulders and back from poor posture, worn-out wrists, neck pain from staring down at your cellphone too long, etc. — I say any day’s a proper day to treat yourself to a spa visit. You know I love a good spa …
And with Spa Week here, thousands of spas around the country are offering fantastic treatments for just $50 all next week. Fifty bucks! Considering there’s a LOT of high-end spas on the Spa Week list, next week is the perfect time to check out spots you may not usually venture out to. I got to visit a popular Dallas spa last month that I’d heard lots of great things about — click through to check out my thoughts on Pure Spa and Salon …
This weekend, that epitome of Dallas food festivals, Savor Dallas, returns to take over town with four days of deliciousness for you, me and every local foodie and drinkie.
Since being bought from its founding owners a couple years ago, the festival has undergone changes each go-round, and this year is no exception. Click on through for a taste of the new deliciousness being added alongside the main-event Grand Tasting this year!
