COOKIE MONSTER

Uptown’s New Cookie Shop

We know exactly what you need. A secluded bungalow off the Gulf. But for now, you’ll take a cookie. Which brings us to Great One Cookie, a new Uptown spot offering three options: chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin and white chocolate macadamia cranberry. Now about that bungalow...

ODDLY ENOUGH

It’s Arrived: Dinner at Oddfellows

It’s finally here. Dinner. At Oddfellows. The Bishop Arts brunch spot is rolling out fried chicken, burgers, black beans and rice, and... actually, that’s all. The $15,000 espresso machine will be up and running, too. Lattes go great with drumsticks.

Now serving dinner, Oddfellows, 316 W 7th St, 214-944-5958

A Mexican Joint near a Tortilla Factory
THE FACTORY

A Mexican Joint near a Tortilla Factory

For the past 87 years, Luna’s tortilla factory has been slinging their homemade wares all over Dallas—from Fearing’s to the Mansion. But starting Friday, they’re rolling out their own little Mexican joint and serving up the family’s secret recipes. Hint: they involve ribs and—you guessed it—tortillas.

Now open, Luna’s, 8524 Harry Hines Blvd, 214-747-2661

Cocktails, a Runway and an After-Party
MODEL SERVICE

Cocktails, a Runway and an After-Party

We checked your calendar—you’re busy this Saturday. But we think you can fit this in. It involves gratis cocktails, a penthouse club and runway models at the Dallas Contemporary. Oh, and an after-party at Ghostbar. And like that, your calendar is clear...

Sunday
A Patio Soiree and Adult Popsicles
LOVELY ’RITAS

A Patio Soiree and Adult Popsicles

Urban Taco’s hosting its annual patio unveiling party, with a live mariachi band, complimentary tequila tastings, rollito de rib eyes and the aforementioned margarita popsicles. If you’re not excited by now, we really can’t help you.

Apr 3, 11am-close, Urban Taco, 3411 McKinney Ave, 214-922-7080

Watching Dallas with the Cast of Dallas

Watching Dallas with the Cast of Dallas

The time has finally arrived. TNT is remaking Dallas—we know, we’re emotional, too—so the Texas Theatre’s screening two episodes every Sunday until every season has been shown. Some of the old cast will be stopping by, so save a seat for Sue Ellen.
