My recent trip to Dallas was a short turn around. Doesn’t leave much time for exploring but you know I found some time to find a few ‘beautiful things’. For example, the Blue Buffalo mascot came for a visit. You just never know who you are going to meet along the way.
We ate lunch at The Owners Box, a sports bar inside the Omni hotel which is attached to the convention center. Every restaurant had such beautiful art and very tempting menu choices, but of course I was fascinated by the floor in the sports bar. I know, I know. Crazy right? I do love to collect strange things, so you know I had to snap a few pics! Larger than life newspaper sport articles laminated in a collage as you enter the restaurant just drew me right in.
What better thing to eat in Texas? Some Texas smoked brisket chili of course. I almost passed on this bowl of deliciousness, but had to inquire how this chili was prepared; since the ingredients did not include beans, I was all in. It was in fact the best tasting chili I have ever had! The brisket was so tender it seemed to melt right in your mouth. So worth it! I’d go back just for the chili! With a full day on the convention floor and a seven am flight back home, lunch was truly the highlight of this trip. Next stop, Orlando, Florida; another work convention. Maybe I’ll get a chance to do a little exploring! Even if I don’t get to put my feet in the sand, one thing is for sure, I will be collecting some beautiful things
