GOSSIP

DUGG THIS
Dugg Burger, a kind of Bread Zeppelin for burgers, is set to open in Casa Linda Plaza.  Get this … they start with a hollowed-out burger bun, add the toppings, then top it with a fresh burger patty.  We’ll see if we digg it once it opens.

Henry’s Majestic

GET PINNED
Another badass bowling alley, PINSTACK, opened its doors on January 30 up in the great white north … err, well, in Plano, that is.  PINSTACK offers 28 lanes, a ropes course, laser tag (I’M IN), bumper cars, rock climbing walls, a game room, and a full-service restaurant.  Oh … and a full “Bowl Bar” featuring craft cocktails, 24 beers and 6 wines on tap, and a gelato bar.

THIS VODKA?
You should try this vodka.
Academy Award-winning actor and restaurateur (wait, what?), Robert De Niro, has a new vodka brand, VDKA 6100.  I guess he didn’t want Dan Aykroyd to have all the fun.

The De Niro Martini:
4 ounces of vodka
1 ounce of dry vermouth

Add ice in a cocktail shaker. Stir. (Don’t shake.) Strain into a martini glass, then pour back into the shaker and strain again into the glass. Finish with a lemon twist.
