Addison circle or the shop at legacy or uptown for food and bars; garland/plano for Asian food, or scooter around Dallas like I did with my bud lol

Considering the weather in mid 90°’s indoor or water activities might be preferable if your friend isn’t accustomed to high temps. Save the outdoor exploring to evenings.

Brew at the zoo on Friday. Saturday is grapevine wine fest

Is this a date??

Thanks all, really great suggestions!! It's not a date, just two female friends hanging out

If y’all want something Texan and depending where your friend is from - maybe shooting range?

Took out of state and country friends to it before and it was a ‘liberating’ and ‘exhilarating’ experience in their terms.

Texas drivers…honest question. Why, why in tf do people just camp in the left lane? I’m talking doing maybe 5 mph over the limit in the left lane when people want to go faster and they can get over?? I can’t always see around and sometimes on hills I can see that one jackass is holding up a line of cars. What gives???

I'll be moving to Dallas for work this summer. I've been looking into housing options within walking distance from my job in downtown (wanna minimize driving as much as possible). Most of the places I've seen within my budget seem to have really mixed reviews. I don't need anything big or fancy--just needs to be safe and clean. Any insight on these places (or any other recs) would be great:
