Things to do in Dallas, Tx

Hello OTer's

Asking for suggestions.

Every 2 years, my college roomates meet up as a mini reunion. This year, we are meeting up in Dallas next week. Just want to ask for suggestions for things to do. Can you guys/gals offer

-good places to eat?
-good clubs?
-good activities?

The trip is in 1 week.

Thanks in advance.

Staying downtown? Dallas is sort of like LA (I've lived in both) it's huge. Will you have a car? The Stars are playing Edmonton on Thursday and the Mavs play the Lakers this Sunday, if you care at all.

Yes, we will have a car.
We're staying in "M" steets area.
Trying to get to the Stars game...but my flight don't land until 7h45 local time.
My homies will be there...i think I'll catch the 3rd period.

Thanks Red Bread...any other ideas?

If you're in the M Streets, restaurants on Greenville should be fun, Glorias and Blue Goose are both pretty good, the Grape is good for dinner, but not really ideal for a guys weekend. Old Monk is probably worth a visit too, it's nearby. There are a lot of bars, clubs and restaurants near the M Streets.

There's a Sunday afternoon Stars game against the Blues, if you miss the Oil. The Dropkick Murphy's are playing the House of Blues Tuesday night, but it sounds like you won't be here yet. Also Tame Impala is playing a smaller venue, the Granada on Wednesday, but it's sold out and probably before you'll be here.

Update: We're in the West Village or Uptown.

Red Bread..for eats, we're thinking:
Offsite Kitchen
Rosewood Mansion
Smoke
Saturday night dinner spot- open

Any karting places nearby?
Any nice public golf courses where we can rent some sticks to play?

Speedzone is probably the closest, easiest carting solution.

The Mansion is good and highbrow, Stephen Pyle is probably worth looking into also.

Thank you everybody!
Litos--haha funny stuff!

Originally we were planning to do some very stereotypical stuff (like shooting automatic rifles and stuff), but since Sandy Hook, none of us really want to do that anymore.

Second that! Spearmint Rhino is an awesome gentleman's club. I like it better than The Lodge.

Check out http://www.dallasobserver.com, you'll find some good info there.

What is the general age of your group. That might help determine what would be the most fun for you. We wouldn't want to send you to a hip hop yuppie club if you're in your late 40's, I doubt y'all would enjoy that.

A lot of stuff is always going on in/around Victory Park (American Airlines Center)

Gat-Splat can be pretty fun if you're into paintball. It's about 15-20 min from where you'll be at.

You might think this is a gay suggestion, but if y'all are down on getting some spa time in, Spa Castle is pretty legit. I went there on a Saturday at about noon and chilled in pool area and there was quite a few hotties hanging around getting drinks. I believe its a hot spot for bachelorette parties before they go out at night. It's also a hot spot for couples though. I was there with my lady, I still couldn't help but to notice the ladies in bikinis. Again, Spa Castle is a about a 20 min drive though.

@RambleJ, @SAM135iAM @ForEvere92- given that this is a guys weekend, it is implied that the ballet would be in play. The over/under on posts was 12 before a gentleman's club would be mentioned! (I thought that Litos was going to going to mention on post 10) What night? It may be Thursday night after Stars game or Friday. I'll post one more time to confirm time if you're serious. If you show up, we'll do some Jaeger bombs. If it gets out of hand..we'll make it rain on stage (!). Look for a brown guy, a yellow guy and a white guy.

I don't know man. I don't think it would be. When I went there was a few small groups of dudes. It really could be a hit or miss type of thing for you guys. I would ask your friends that you're meeting up with what they think about it and check there website out. http://www.spacastleusa.com/tx.html

I think Thursday night would be better. Friday night you'd want to spend at an actual Dallas club with some ladies you have a way higher chance of getting back to your room.
Either way hit me up and let me know @
I can't PM here.

Nice meeting you last night OP.
My hangover is very strong today, but I gotta push through it and make it happen again tonight.
Hit me up if you guys wanna meet up later tonight, I'll be out and about with a couple of my friends.

@RambleJ--really nice to meet up with you. Hangover was in full effect Saturday. We kept it quiet. Sorry we didn't hook up again. Also-I just checked this today....Best of luck to your future move wish you the best!
