“I would definitely recommend going to Fearing’s Restaurant for a nice dinner. In 2009, it was rated the #1 Hotel Restaurant in the country by Zagat. The most popular dish is their steak and chicken-fried lobster, and it’s to die for! And speaking of happy hour, my recent discovery was Madrina. A very unexpected combination of French and Mexican cuisine, the restaurant also features half prices during happy hour, and the handcrafted cocktails will not leave you disappointed!”
“Whenever my friends and family from Europe come for a visit, I take them to Perot Museum of Nature and Science. It’s a very cognitive and entertaining place not only for kids, but for adults as well. With 11 permanent exhibits, you can experience the formation of thunder, different magnitudes of an earthquakes, and many more.”
“MTV RE:DEFINE gala and auction is benefiting Staying Alive Foundation and Dallas Contemporary. It is a very good cause dedicated to decreasing the spread of HIV/AIDS among young people. Secondly, the Eye Ball Celebration of Dallas Art Fair is the cocktail party to go to. Guests can mingle next to the 30-foot-tall eye sculpture by Tony Tasset. A great event where art, fashion, and nightlife come together.”
“If you are an admirer of natural scenery, head over to the Dallas Arboretum. It is a great place to enjoy the outdoors, especially during spring, as it gets very hot in summer. The 66 acres of beautiful flowers and magnificent trees on White Rock Lake are absolutely gorgeous!”
