The recent trip to Texas for the glorious World Series was not just about attending the games. There was more to do and enjoy in the Lonestar State, starting with some pretty great meals. I know; that’s shocking. First in Dallas followed by a couple days with our Houston friends.
Sightseeing: Highland Park and Preston Hollow for spectacular homes; SMU Campus including the George W. Bush Presidential Library (currently closed)
Dallas digs: AC Hotels by Marriott, a new brand (to me) — upscale, modern and very reasonable! Under $1oo per night for spacious king.
Next, we hightailed it down to Houston to spend a couple days with our longtime friends there (Kay & Fred Zeidman). For the Houston dining, highlights were Kenny & Ziggy’s deli (“We Schlep Nationwide” via Goldbelly), Killen’s BBQ (fabulous!) plus Porta’Vino and somehow DQ always seems to pop up and we can’t resist.
We’re always sad to leave our Texas friends — especially after this particularly spectacular visit. We even loved seeing Fred’s WS ring from the Nats organization — we “countered” in our Dodger gear. Can’t wait to see y’all again!
