Tweet I walked into Alamo Drafthouse for the very first time. "Not bad," I said to myself. Though this movie theater has been around for two years, its draw isn't the movies, and it's not the Glass Half Full Bar that serves draft beer or even the food made in a kitchen. It’s the atmosphere; [...]
Tweet Did you miss me? It is soooo great to be back writing for ILiveInDallas.com for 2015. It has been a long and dreadful winter. If you've taken a look outside lately, the wacko Texas weather is behind us and spring has come at last. So... what do you want to do? Go out for [...]

If you’ve lived in Dallas for any significant amount of time, you’ve seen the face of Lower Greenville grow and change over the years. From Steel City Pops to the ever-popular Truck Yard, there’s something for just about everyone. For me, Lower Greenville is a frequent stop not only because it’s fun vibe, but also because of all the local establishments up and down the street. One of my very favorite stops in the area is Company Café. I’ve written about this restaurant before, and in the interest of full disclosure, it really is one of my favorite places in Dallas. Many people are familiar with their commitment to supporting local producers, their wide array of gluten-free menu options, and friendly weight staff. But not many are familiar with the history of the team that has kept Company Café growing and thriving.
Tweet I was recently told that I take Christmas obsession to a level that is a cross between adorable and terrifying. Whether you fall under the category of obsessed, or just happy about the time off for the holidays, Christmas lights make it feel like the holidays, even when it's December and 70 degrees outside.

Tweet With the holidays upon us, many people take this time to reflect on what they are grateful for -- cherished memories with the family become the most important activity to us (if not year round) for a few short months. In this time, many families have come to take up new traditions -- like [...]
