Dallas #BoozeNews: October 5, 2015

NEW OPENINGS

Everyone was stoked about Austin transplant, Uchi … so it’s time to get revved-up again.  The owners of Uchi will open a new concept in Dallas, Top Knot, early 2016 just above the current location. “Executive Chef Tyson Cole’s new concept marries a playful Asian-inspired menu with a full bar and a relaxed atmosphere.”

Pollo Tropicals are just popping’ up everywhere.  In less than a month the’ve opened FOUR new ones … check them out in Lewisville (9/18), Cedar Hill (11/6) and in Dallas on Greenville (10/2).  Each location has a grand opening party … so check ‘em out!

Rusty Taco will open in the space previously occupied by Snookie’s on Oak Lawn.  I’m not sure how I feel about this … but I know that I miss Snookie’s.

OTHER NEWS …

Ivy Kitchen’s Patio
Ivy Kitchen’s Patio

Ivy Kitchen is getting on the patio weather bandwagon in a big way.  They’ve secured Goga (he’s seriously worth going to see) to play and they’ve revved-up their happy hour.  Gaga will play the next few Tuesdays (6, 13, & 20) from 6-9pm and their happy hour will include $5 house wines and well drinks, $3 domestic bottles, $5 imports, and $5-12 food items Monday-Friday, 4-7pm.

Football makes all things better.  Upscale bowling alley Pinstack knows this … so they’ve started offering “Bowl + Bite Night” during Monday Night Football!  Mondays (except holidays), 4pm-close, they’ll offer guests (who are bowling) 1/2 price appetizers and $3 select draft beers. 

If you joined me at Le Taco last week for my SDD Happy Hour, then you got a sneak preview of the awesomeness that is Le Taco’s new happy hour.  They’ll have daily specials and drink discounts from 3-7pm.  All of this is good.  Specials will be as follows:

DAILY, 3-7pm: $3 margaritas, sangria, “Mexi-canned” beers, Exotico tequila shots, and wells … 1/2 price sangria pitchers, $1 off all tacos
Sunday
: happy hour all day, 1/2 price champagne by the bottle, live music 12-5pm

Tuesday: $2 margaritas
Wednesday: 1/2 price wine by the bottle and pitchers of sangria

Tuesdays needed some excitement.  (Actually … I’m not sure if they did or not, but Paul Martin’s American Grill thought so.)  So, each Tuesday, all day, you can order a three-course fried chicken special for $22.  Salad (because green things have to happen … whatever), buttermilk fried chicken with mashed potatoes, and homemade ice cream.

Speaking of chicken … late-night pizza spot Greenville Avenue Pizza Company (a.k.a. GAPCo) has been serving lunch as of late.  To up the ante on their lunch offerings, they’ll now serve their (really fucking delicious) chicken wings as a combo deal–$10 for wings, fries, and a drink–from 11am-4pm week days.  Now, here’s some chicken porn …
