The best thing about my loft is the roof. I feel like I have my own personal oasis to wonder over all the hopes and dreams in Downtown Dallas. What a view I have!!
What better way to enjoy my view than to have a Moscow Mule on the Roof. The Moscow Mule is the “IN” drink of the season! In fact, I’ve read that the copper cups are the most stolen cup at the restaurants and bars that have them. I didn’t steal mine, of course, I got mine from Sears. I chose to get the 20 ounce cups so I don’t have to make more than one.
Moscow Mule Recipe:
2 shots of vodka
Half of a ginger beer
Squeeze half a lime in the drink
It’s pretty important to serve the Moscow Mule in a copper cup. It makes all the difference in the world!!
Be careful though. This is a STRONG drink. Drink responsibly!
Last night we went to Kung Fu to meet some friends. This is one of my favorite places because there is so much to do. My favorite is to play skee ball. I thought I was pretty good at it until someone in my group scored over 300. Every time I’ve been to Kung Fu, the skee ball has been free, so it’s a great place to go and practice your skills for all the skee ball tournaments that you may run across.
Another thing I like about Kung Fu is that they have all the old school video games. You can play Ms. Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Shooting Gallery, and so many more games. If you go there on Sunday, the games are free.
They also have a full service bar that is really reasonably priced. They have a lot of choices of beer on tap, I think I saw about 25 different kinds. This is a great place for just about anyone that likes to have fun!
I was told that Kung Fu’s has opened in Uptown Dallas and will be opening soon in Houston too. I’m pretty sure I’ll at least get to go to the one in Dallas at some point!!
Last night we went to one of our favorite places, Lavaca Street Bar and Grill. One of the reasons we like it is because they always have good specials. Tuesday night is $1.00 Tecate night. Wednesday is Hamburger basket for $5.00 night. Thursday is baconmania. I still haven’t made it there for baconmania yet though. Dare to dream!!! We all shared queso, fries and wings. The guys had pizza, too. They have pretty good bar food. The only complaint that I have about the place is that the music is really loud. I can’t ever hear the people I’m sitting next to. Does that mean I’m getting old?
On the way to crash one of our friend’s birthday party we saw this cool statue of Willie Nelson. It’s right outside of the W Hotel. Some day I’d like to stay in a W hotel. Austin is so cool.
