Honored to be in such distinguished company for this inaugural event.
Two years ago, Brooklyn-based indie publisher Akashic Books added a Dallas collection to its award winning noir series. Edited by David Hale Smith, the list of contributing authors read like a “who's who” of the Dallas literary scene. On Saturday June 27th, The Wild Detectives is thrilled to ...

Great press from +The Independent!
 
The air hangs heavy over the Klyde Warren Park. It is hot. The sun doesn't so much beat down as encircle and then enclose you. It's almost like a cuddle. I feel tired. But most of all I feel sorry for Klyde Warren himself.

WHEN George W. Bush was outed as an artist, after a computer hacker uncovered his nude self-portraits, jaws dropped around the world. Could Cowboy George ­actually be a closet aesthete? At the first exhibition of his works in Dallas, he confessed, “There’s a Rembrandt trapped in this body.”

Story
Tagline
artful connector of good people and ideas
Introduction
I'm Catherine Cuellar, an award-winning journalist. Among my honors? "Best Halloween Costume," when I dressed as Elliott from E.T. — wearing my red hoodie, riding my 1972 Schwinn 3-speed cruiser, and bribing judges with Reese's Pieces. That was in 2005. As a child, I won a plane trip to Disneyland on the "Duck One" with Donald, Daisy, Mickey, and Minnie. Then in 2006, I sang at Carnegie Hall. Each fall at the State Fair of Texas, I get to judge the cobbler, biscuit and chocolate cooking contests. But I haven't always been so lucky. I broke my ankle in the U.S. days prior to my scheduled departure for a hike across Africa. (I went anyway.) I also rollerbladed into a tree, giving myself a black eye on the eve of a job interview. (I didn't get an offer.) However, I don't see those missteps (or rather, mis-skates) as accidents; I prefer to think of myself as "opportunity-prone."

Because it is in Terminal D but outside security, this is a fine place for those from outside DFW to await arrivals or visit with travelers during a long layover. Food is tasty is a bit overpriced. It is currently in the midst of renovation, so seating is limited, carpets are stained, upholstery is frayed and restrooms are less accessible — for now.

A laid back Big Lebowski-themed bar and restaurant. Wash down Twisted Root burgers, shakes or salads with a local or craft beer on tap or cocktails like "the Nihilist" or "the Caucasian" (even if you haven't seen the Coen Brothers' cult classic film, whose characters Walter, Jesus and the Dude are painted on black velvet adorning the warehouse's whitewashed walls). This is not the place for league or hasty bowling; equipment is reclaimed and recycled from Longview in east Texas — so ball return and pin resetting may be slow, and the score-keeping technology may be a smidge off — but these quirks only add to the fun atmosphere. While you may have to await lane availability on weekend evenings, there's also a chance you'll catch some local music.

Enjoy a show al fresco at the Ted & Shannon Skokos Pavilion. This intimate, open-air venue is one of the rare few where you can BYOB — including alcoholic beverages (as long as coolers are soft-sided and no larger than 16"). All patrons, including those on the gently sloping tiered lawn, enjoy excellent views of the stage. Acoustics are surprisingly good given the proximity to Woodall Rodgers Freeway. Spectacular skyline views from within the downtown Dallas Arts District are a bonus. Get everything you need for a picnic — including wine, cheese, and fresh fruit — from the 7-Eleven in One Arts Plaza.

This boutique, loft-style hotel has the best view of downtown Dallas from its rooftop Soda Bar, drawing local business people, neighborhood artists, and convention center tourists alike. The lobby restaurant, Terrace Bistro, features a wildly painted grand piano by reception, oversized plush furnishings, abstract art in exposed brick walls, and stained concrete floors — illuminated by a crystal chandelier. Neighborhood attractions within walking distance include Off the Bone BBQ, live music venue Poor David's Pub, and dive bar Lee Harvey Unfortunately there is no self-parking available, only complimentary valet. It's a block away from the Cedars DART light rail stop on the red and blue lines.
