While planning for an upcoming trip, one of my absolutely genius friends informed me that you can now bring alcohol onto your flight with no security problems. While I have not personally confirmed this amazing revelation (yet), I read this post from I’m a Travel Ninja, and it seems super legit.
There are simply no words to express how happy I am now that I know I can bring tiny bottles of pure joy onto an 11-hour flight at less than half the cost of those ass-raping airplane booze prices. And with the dreaded family-filled holiday season around the corner, this little nugget of information could not be more timely.
This is a gift from your booze gods. You’re welcome.
Once upon a time, some horny dudes wanting to get some strange came together and created a special, magical event to draw all single ladies out of their sweatpants and into the bars on a weeknight. This primal mating ritual has manifested itself into something completely awesome, and it’s called ladies’ night.
If you have a pulse and a vagina, and you’re not taking advantage of ladies’ night, there’s something wrong with you. Ladies’ night is an important part of any fun, single girl’s life for several very important reasons. Continue reading
In my constant search for the perfect dive bar, I (drunkenly) stumble into some pretty strange and maybe dangerous places. I recently ran across a little hole-in-the-wall place in East Dallas that is a dive bar lover’s dream. Strangeways looks like a dark, seedy cave where you may possibly get shanked – but it is completely worth the risk. With tons of rare craft brews on tap and bottled, along with a huge assortment of interesting liquors, Strangeways is an awesome place to kick back and try some great new beers.
The little bar on Fitzhugh is owned by two siblings, Eric and Erica Sanchez, and is pretty small and low-key with an awesomely casual atmosphere and laid-back vibe. This is the dive bar you’ve been searching for – where you can try all kinds of new beers and cocktails and chow down on some delicious food without a bunch of douche cakes spilling beer down your back and body slamming you into the bar. Go to Strangeways, sit on the patio and order a beer you’ve ever heard of – no Smirnoff Ice for you here. It will be interesting and tasty and you’ll be hooked.
One of our favorite holidays is officially only one month away. Commonly referred to by boring people as Cinco de Mayo, the Three Sheets team joyfully celebrates this most wonderful of days as all red-blooded, tequila-loving Americans should: by eating as many nachos as we can possibly handle and drinking our body weight in straight tequila margaritas.
Since Cinco de Drinko provides drunks everywhere with a glorious day of tequila drinking and nacho eating, we were stoked when we stumbled upon the 30 Days of Cinco Countdown Calendar from On the Border. This countdown gives visitors a free coupon every day from now until Cinco de Mayo, including free sopapillas, queso and tons of other delicioso Mexican goodies.
So, in the holy name of tequila, go to www.iloveontheborder.com and get some free stuff to celebrate the countdown to Cinco de Drinko. As in NOW – go before the Three Sheets team eats and drinks On the Border out of business.
So, by now you should know that not only am I a classy bitch, but I am also looking to RAGE. When looking for a place to get cray in Deep Ellum, Double Wide is always the go-to. Clearly you can tell by the name of this fine establishment that it is trailer park-themed – and FABULOUS.
Double Wide is known for drinks made of Yoo-Hoo, Boone’s Farm and Tang, so it’s pretty much the classiest place to drink in Dallas. If the high-class cocktails aren’t enough, Double Wide has live music and a weekly, Thursday-night karaoke-fest, making it the perfect dive joint to get crunk in. It’s also a decked out hipster haven complete with clashing curtains, mismatched granny furniture and toilet flower planters. Continue reading
As a true Texas girl, I certainly enjoy a good Mexican meal. Add in a dash of holiday party planning, and this southern belle is in heaven. A few weeks ago, I was invited to taste the new On The Border holiday catering menu and it was absolutely delicious. Although I loved everything about the new menu, there are a few things that stood out to me:
The Skinny Margaritas
Like most red-blooded humans, I have developed a love affair with tequila. It’s delicious and gets the job done. As a fancy lady, I am also always looking for ways to get crunk with the least amount of calories, which is why I am a huge fan of “skinny” drinks. Unfortunately, reduced-calorie booze tends to leave you with ultra-sugary, cavity-inducing flavors and a very sober state of mind in place of drunken deliciousness. Apparently, the cavity cocktail is no more at On The Border and I was pleasantly surprised by exactly how delicious the OTB skinny margs were. They did not taste like a sugary-sweet lime slushie, but a proper tequila-with-a-hint-of-lime, grown-up drink. The skinny margs at OTB are hands-down my favorite skinny cocktail – and they didn’t cost an arm and a leg, so you’re able to get white-girl-wasted with very few calories and still have money for your yoga class this month.
The Bean Dip-tinis
As a lady of class and elegance, I appreciate the finer things in life. It’s the little details like adorable food presentation that really put a smile on this fancy lady’s face. On The Border completely tapped into this love of mine with their new holiday catering menu by placing the world’s most perfect food – delicious bean dip – into perfectly adorable martini glasses.
These little appetizers were cute, special and, most importantly, absolutely delicious. The mini-martini bean dip made my day and would definitely give any holiday party a little something special.
Long story short, go eat at On The Border – especially if you’re thinking of throwing a super fancy fiesta this season. And don’t forget to “taste test” the skinny margs – you won’t be disappointed.
