After we walked around, we headed into the Meyerson Symphony Center. We were so excited to see Byron Stripling: Tribute to New Orleans Jazz. We usually make it down to the Big Easy a couple of times a year, so to have a slice of NOLA in our backyard was perfection! Byron puts on a great show. He sings, plays trumpet, and leads the band incredibly. Hey, how can you go wrong with a little Louis Armstrong backed by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra??! I'm so glad we were able to see this show.
Saturday, we saw X-Men: First Class at Highland Park Village Theater. I couldn't decide if I loved the movie or the theater most! This movie theater is small, yet luxurious due to its recent renovations. The theater has a full bar and high end treats like cupcakes and cookies vs. the usual Mike & Ikes you get at other theaters. I simply loved reclining in the leather seats while sipping on my white wine. Such a great place to catch a movie!
Saturday night, my dad came to town, so we took him to Urbano Cafe. Urbano is one of our top 5 restaurants in Dallas. My dad being from Tulsa, was knocked off his rocker by the incredible food we had. I'm so glad I was able to show him a little bit about our Dallas.
Sunday, we did a quick Brunch at Monica's Aca y Alla in Deep Ellum. Monica's is a new find for us and I'm so glad we weren't disappointed. Their brunch entrees are around $6 and mimosas are $1. The best part is that the atmosphere is "New Deep Ellum" meaning the entire restaurant is well thought out and accommodating to day time clientele. Monica's is not just a bar with a kitchen in the back like other Deep Ellum restaurants. The salsa, queso, and food was fantastic. Eric and I are definitely going back!

Hope you had a great Father's Day with your dad or kiddos!
