What to Do While in Dallas?

eatziesI usually try to get to Dallas in the afternoon and have all afternoon and night available so neither I or my wife feel rushed. I recommend going to Eatzie’s as a start.

EatZie’s offers a gourmet food selection to choose from and it is like shopping in a gourmet grocery store but with the added option of being able to heat up the food and eat it there. The stuff you don’t eat you can take with you if you have a place to keep it.

We often will go here and sit out on the patio. The shopping experience inside, interesting premade food selections, and the nice outdoor area make this the perfect place to bring your significant other.

After your done here you can visit a nearby shopping center. The very fancy but awesome outdoor shopping mall is near here called, The West Village.  This shopping area is so nice you might see a Dallas Mavericks superstar walking by, a model, or actress. I usually end up window shopping and don’t actually buy anything more than a dish towel but it is worth strolling around window shopping if nothing else than stretching the legs.

Again I simply walk around, take in the $10,000 T-shirt price tags for the entertainment of it all and leave with a washing rag or bar of soap.

After a nice leisurely stroll at one of these malls its best if you have something planned. I usually like to plan a trip to a Mavericks game, Texas Rangers game, or possibly an REI adventure club meeting. There are also the music venues like the Gexa Music Pavilion at the fair grounds or the downtown House of Blues.

Have a more entertaining sports event or concert planned to go to for the evening and wrap things up by eating at the event to save time for the drive back home.
