Live Music & Beer – All a Girl Needs

ImageI am not sure if I am proud or embarrassed that Carson’s first concert to go to was Nelly at last year’s Wildflower Festival. I think he’s proud… Wildflower Festival happens every year about 20 yards from my apartment patio and this year’s is this weekend! I don’t know a ton about it, but I do know that there will be live music and beer. That’s all I need… 

Unfortunately, there won’t be any “E. I. E. I. Oh, oh,” this year but there will be some pretty cool bands; Gretchen Wilson, an Elton John cover band, The Charlie Daniels Band, and Uncle Kracker are playing Friday night. I’m extremely excited about The Toadies on Saturday and Robert Earl Keen is Sunday. 

Oh wait, I’ll be at the Bishop Arts District annual Brew Riot supporting our Dallas local brewers on Sunday. Brew Riot is another Dallas “shin dig” with live music and beer, but this has craft beer. Oh, hell yes. (If you’re going, vote for my friends The Manhattan Project!)

Lastly, this doesn’t include live music or beer, but it might eventually… I guess Ku De Ta saw my last blog post because now I have a complimentary membership. I’ll definitely be in the gym all week after drinking all of this beer to get ready for Ku De Ta season. Woop! 


Have a good weekend friends!









Birthday Planning Starts… Now!

My birthday is coming up (June 4th to be exact) and I’m not sure how I am going to top off last year’s celebration.

Last year, my girlfriends and I did everything from drinks by my pool, beer tastings at The Common Table, dinner and more drinks at a few bars in Uptown to the pool at the Omni Dallas. It was quite the adventure to say the least…

Now, for this year, I have discovered this place… Ku De Ta Dallas. This Dallas gem is in a discrete location behind Three Sheets, off of the Central Expressway and Ross. Ku De Ta is unique because of its very resort-y pool-side bungalows during the day and destination nightlife seen at night. It’s like a stay-cation! I’m dying to check it out. What do you think? Does it look like douchebag central?


Any other birthday suggestions in Dallas?
