Stroll across the Ron Kirk Pedestrian Bridge, which spans the Trinity River and offers the best views of the Santiago Calatrava-designed Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge.
Finish the evening at Trinity Groves and dine at LUCK, whose menu highlights Texas ingredients. Sample from LUCK’s terrific local craft beer list before stopping in Steam Theory Brewing Co. to sip its Singularity, a blonde ale with a hint of German noble hops.
START WITH A GROWL(ER)
Fuel up on breakfast sandwiches, fresh-pressed juices and terrific coffee at Mudsmith. The restaurant can fill growlers with your choice of cold-brewed coffee, fermented kombucha or its selection of craft beer.
TAKE A SHOPPING BREAK
Pick up a cool Dallas-motif shirt at Bullzerk. From tees to rep all your favorite Dallas neighborhoods to quirky koozies and gifts to take back home, the tongue-in-cheek shop is a fun shopping stop to explore on Greenville Avenue.
Head east for a tour at Lakewood Brewing Company and sample from its smooth, Belgian-inspired brews. Focus your attention to Lakewood’s “Legendary” and “Special Releases” offerings for inspired, nuanced flavors that are available only for a short time. Don’t miss the Bourbon Barrel Temptress, a smooth Imperial Milk Stout aged in oak bourbon barrels. The garden often hosts live music and local food trucks.
DISCOVER SOMETHING NEW
Finish the day in the Bishop Arts District, an eclectic, walkable collection of independent boutiques, vintage stores, galleries and restaurants in South Dallas. Settle in with a craft beer as you discover a new author and listen to live music at independent bookstore The Wild Detectives. Shift gears at Bishop Cider Co., with a glass Nectar, a semi-sweet hard cider that uses Pacific Northwest apples and Texas honey.
