Eat - Play - Love what you do this weekend. by Kevin Twitty

Tonight it's all about you! Go out and eat, 

1. EAT

Grab a beer and Treat your tastebuds this weekend. A great place to do that is The Meddlesome Moth in the Design District in Dallas. They pride themselves a sophisticated environment, bold flavors and tout a full bar and the city’s best beer menu featuring 40 draught beers, two live ales and more than 85 bottles to help us round out our selection. - See more on their Beer Blog. Check it out.

2. PLAY

Now that the wine has been flowing and the food consumed, it's party time! We are a month past the "holiday cheer" and the past 30 days have been labeled "hibernation time". Now we can yell at the top of are lungs "YES! THE HOLIDAYS ARE OVER!" It's time to dig through the closets, past the baggy winter clothes, and dust of your party pants. Put on those fancy shoes, it's time to dance! If you are in Dallas head down to It'll Do. This week Brett Johnson is spinning with DJ Redeye opening.

HBO Promotional Ad

There are so many great shows to watch on TV this time of the year it's hard to prioritize. Sometimes I get choice fatigue and great shows get pushed to the back burner. I have decided to go back and start a show that has huge nods from fans and critics. That show is GIRLS! I am obsessed. There is something great about the no apology approach to the lives of these NYC gals. The humor is dry and the situations have a sense of reality. I love in the very first episode of the series Hannah's parens stop funding her juvenile lifestyle. This resonates with many of todays millennials and the way their parents can baby them. I am looking forward to how this series unfolds!

Cheers to your weekend!

I don't know about you but I feel most of us ask "what are we going to do this weekend?" and most respond with ". . ."  With so much going on these days it's easy to get overloaded to the point where we want to give up and forget about trying to do anything at all. Sometimes we all need a night in doing nothing, but today is not that day! Get up! Get out! Eat. Play. Love.  

The three things I love doing most in life are eating, playing and loving things! Here are my suggestions on what to do this weekend:

Step outside of your comfort zone and try a new restaurant this weekend. Tonight a few friends and I are going to try something new and eat at OSO Food & Wine, a Mediterranean restaurant I ran across on Dallas Eaters, "The Hottest Restaurants in Dallas Right Now, January 2015." I'll be sure to write up a full review after our experience.

This is where my nerdy side comes to life! On any given weekend there is nothing better then a board game with friends or family. My board game pick is Castle Panic by Fireside Games.  What I love most about the game is you're working together rather than fighting against each other. Of course there is a single victor, however, if the castle remains standing, everyone is a winner!

3. LOVE

One of the greatest gifts in life is that we get to love things! One of the things I am completely in love with right now is vintage shopping. I ran across this fantastic hidden gem, Vieux, in Richardson, TX. They have a fantastic selection of vintage jewelry, lighting, furniture, art and accessories. It is definitely worth a look!

Cheers to your weekend!
