As much as we try to deny that Valentine’s Day is even a real thing anymore, any single person will tell you that this most horrible of days is rough. No matter how hard you try to put on your good face and pretend like seeing all these happy bitches all around you isn’t seriously making you consider committing a felony, we know that on the inside you’re plotting their deaths and white-knuckling it until you can be home and pantsless, dominating a box of bargain chocolates.
The stages of Single Awareness Day are fairly easy to spot within each of us, and with the right booze to pair with them, you’ll be able to make it right on through this unholy day with ease and a serious buzz. Continue reading
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.
I love hot sauce. I hate tomato juice. Why would people drink that? If you’re like me and you want an alternative to this traditional hangover cure-all, try this Bloody Margarita recipe, compliments of Drinks Mixer. Sure, it doesn’t have much of a brunch spin, but I personally give you permission to drink it any morning you like.
