Seeing is Believing: The New Dallas Cowboys Stadium

Taking the opportunity to see the new Dallas Cowboys Stadium before the season began, Alysa, Jake & I joined our friends for some high school football which did not disappoint. Great crowd, wowie zowie stadium and a high kicking halftime show. Saw cheese fries and nachos and all sorts of temptations, all Texas style.

Irene Neuwirth Does Dallas!

We had a swell time with Irene and Woju and the hugest trunk of jewelry (which was considerably lightened when they left). Let's just say that labradorite was the rage, and jewelry was flying. Had some good eats and cute visitors too. Never too young to start a great taste level!

Art by the Homeless: A Show

One of Alysa's projects in high school was working with the homeless in their art classes and an outgrowth of that was the creation of Alysa's Friends, which was the sale of cards with art made by them, with all proceeds going back to the First Presbyterian Ministies (Stewpot). This art show was hard to resist and we hot-footed it downtown where we ran into Charles, who was the artist for her peacock card. That painting by him in the background? me. Can't wait to find a place to hang it.

Just got off the phone with Irene (one of our cozy late night calls) and she has assured me that we will be buried in her things come tomorrow. We will post as much as we can on our website, so stay tuned!

Leighton Meester Rocks the VMA's in Cathy Waterman

Hey! Don't take my word for it, because you know I'm biased. See for yourself: Fashion Week Daily (The Chic Report) got their style award and she was decked in Cathy Waterman. Check out the pieces at

Great Dallas Restaurant: Nonna

We agree with one Dallas food critic who wrote: Dallas has a ton of good restaurants, but not as many really great ones. We found one great one last night: Nonna. Small, Italian, constantly changing menu. Great food and wine. Large tables, small room, relaxing atmosphere to really visit with our friends. Before we knew it, it was closing time. Definitely worth booking a table.
