This past weekend I flew back to Oklahoma to surprise my grandfather Pat aka "The Silver Fox," for his 80th birthday. My aunt had organized a weekend excursion to Lake Texoma to do some fishing for the weekend. Overall, the trip was a huge success and i actually caught some fish, which made me feel a little bit more like a man.
A South Willard and Reference Library collaboration that promises to be a good time and have cool stuff from the likes of Crescent Down Works to Vintage Overalls. Looks like this is gonna be a weekend to spend some money...that I don't have. It's going down this Saturday from 2-4.
From the folks that designed the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, and other cool projects, comes their new "community shop." It's a lot of collaborations with some of their own designs. Should be a good time....
About a week and a half ago word spread about a free Vampire Weekend show at an undisclosed location. Hours passed and the band chose Hollenbeck Park, which is a little east of downtown I think. Anyways, although it was a Sunday and I tend to do nothing on the day of rest, I rallied with my buddy Ev and the minute we got there, we knew we made the right call. This free show was a warm-up of sorts for their 2 week swing of California.
It was an afternoon show and the pictures will prove that the weather and day was perfect for a concert.
As for the concert itself, VW put on a great show and I am anxious for their new album Contra.
I was recently in Dallas for the big OU/Texas football game and although my Sooners lost, there was still some good times that took place in D-town. Some of my "go-to's" whenever iI am in Dallas include the following:
Burger House - amazing burgers and even better fries w/ their seasoned salt
Hotel Zaza - boutique hotel w/ great style in the heart of the city
Mecox - see below for proof why this store is a good one
