Default going to Dallas today...

Didn't realize I'd have as much free time today and tomorrow, even Friday. Anything cool to so in Dallas? Or Denying area?

What part of Dallas will you be in? What would you want to do?

Some good multi-taps in Dallas and north of Dallas. Where are you?

I'll be in denton. Just landed in Denver and headed to denton by this afternoon. Just looking for brewpubs, breweries, any sights that are must see. Thanks for the help.

Go to the book repository and see the spot from which Lee Harvey Oswald shot JFK. I'm not much of a museum guy, but this one is worth it. Grassy knoll, overpass, the whole Zepruder film scene is still there.

... and the Cabernet Royale...

I don't know if Deep Ellum Brewing Co. is open for tours or not. I don't think there are other breweries in Dallas you could get to (Franconia in McKinney only tours on Saturday). You could venture to Fort Worth and hit Rahr's Wednesday night tour. $7 for a pint glass, tour and beer.

Sadly, the only thing I really remember about Dallas was Traildust Restaurant. It's a little out of town, but quite the steakhouse. Don't think it was a beer mecca or anything though......

Go to the Dallas World Aquarium. I love that place. Very cool.

Go to the Meddlesome Moth if you're wanting a good beer-bar and great food. Meddlesome Moth - Dallas Beer, Food, Captain Keith Beerknurd

Of course we have Flying Saucers here, too, but meh.

I've wanted to go to the Meddlesome Moth for a while, the food menu looks good and they seem to have quite a few beers on tap. The Ginger Man is a nice little place, been there a few times and recommend trying to stop by.
