Acoustic Music – I love acoustic music and rarely get the opportunity to experience it. This is some of the best that I found online from a good friend Kevin Choquette of Fident Capital. You can find a link to the music here.
Schezwan Flower —Ok—WTF- This is a flower that you eat and it totally numbs your mouth. On a recent trip to Dallas, my bartender/waiter Ty brought one for me to try. It was one of the strangest culinary experiences in my life. Definitely worth the experience or useful for a good party trick. You can buy them here.
Speaking of Ty -Awesome service cannot be exaggerated. My bartender/waiter was engaging, asked about me, asked about what I like to eat and drink, and then proceeded to create my entire order for me with drink pairings. Awesome stuff and a great reminder to me that service trumps all else. People remember how we make them feel!
Elk Steak – Last time I mention Ty (I swear). In this nice steak house in Dallas (SER), Ty recommended the elk steak. It was a rib-eye cut with a perfectly balanced dry rub of salt and pepper. Cooked rare, it was juicy, and as tender as a filet mignon but more flavorful. Ty made me a version of their Manhattan with bourbon barrel smoke to go with the steak, and it was a magnificent combination. I am definitely going back to my epicurean man-crush Ty and his steak and drinks the next time I am in Dallas.
