Q & A With Meghan

How long have you lived in Dallas?

30 years, we moved to Dallas from Austin when I was three.

What are your top 3 favorite things about the city?

It’s generosity of spirit, collaborative nature, and vibrant arts district and community.

Common misconception people might have about Dallas?

We don’t all have big hair and accents. But we are as nice and hospitable as everyone says.

Does Dallas have a certain "look" or vibe to how people dress?

Over the past few years it’s become a more contemporary city, we have world renowned museums and cultural centers and you’ve seen it transition into a global community. DFW airport can take you anywhere in the world so its residents are world travelers. Because of this, the style is more cutting edge, people are much more willing to take risks with their fashion.

Where are your favorite places to sip, see, shop and eat?

The Dallas Museum of Art is always a must see, their current Laura Owens exhibition is not to be missed. And the best part, general admission is free to the public!

This time of year head to the Arboretum and dream that your own backyard could look as lovely.

If the weather is great you can spend all day in Deep Ellum, Pecan Lodge has the best BBQ in Dallas. There is almost always a line but it’s completely worth it.

Jose on Lovers Lane

For a relaxed Sunday night I head to Jose on Lovers Lane. On the rare night that we have perfect weather you can spend hours on the patio creating your own DIY margarita (called The Original) and enjoying their shrimp tacos.

Sachet’s Mediterranean menu is inspired and Mirador on top of Forty Five Ten has become a delicious meeting place, be sure to order the Ricotta toast.
