Company Cafe All Day – Learn About What They’re Doing Different this Month

Company Cafe All Day - Learn About What They're Doing Different this Month

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.

Scenes from Decks in the Park Halloween-Eve Season Closer [Slideshow]

If you told me I’d see a devil dog in my lifetime I wouldn’t have believed you – until last night. Dallas didn’t hold back as droves of costumed guests made Decks in the Park their Thursday night outing. Accompanied by the beacon of a rainbow, Decks goers were treated to the most electric event of the season! Tiny tots triumphantly dotted the stage until eventually it was a swarm of costumed madness. I dare someone to name one event, other than the internationally acclaimed Texas State Fair, that brings literally every demographic together -- shoulder to shoulder in euphoric harmonious musical bliss.
