8 Things That Are Only Normal If You Live in Dallas
Valet + queso = our lives
Queso without jalapeños is just hot cheese. And complaining about the heat happens all year round. These are just a couple of the things that Dallasites have come to consider as totally normal. Read on for the full list.
Valet is everywhere. No, literally. Everywhere.
Dallas may be the only place where you have to use a valet to eat barbecue.
JalapeÑos Should Be On the State Flag
They’re served on and in everything: cocktails, burgers, tacos, muffins, wine, you name it. Learn to love them or (kindly) leave.
White Rock Lake is for looking, not swimming (gross)
You’ve been warned (by the dead fish occasionally floating on top). It really isn’t fair given the extremely hot temps in town, but life isn’t fair now, is it?
A Mambo Taxi is not a means of transportation with great tunes
Although a couple of these deliciously swirled margaritas will have you dancing like no one is watching. Most require an Uber home.
Leaving town to support our favorite teams is just a part of life
The Dallas Cowboys are actually in Arlington. The Texas Rangers, too. Le sigh.
No tacky kiosks at our mall (Thanks, Nancy Nasher)
NorthPark Center just might be the most artfully inspired mall ever, thanks to its mega philanthropist owner with an eye for art and fashion. No yo-yo or hair straightener pop-ups here, folks.
Brunch is the most important meal of the day
And if you brunch well and brunch hard, it could very well be your only meal of the day (zzzzzzz). After all, aren’t Sundays supposed to be a day of rest?
80 degrees and sunny could describe a typical day in any season but summer
Times are tough when temps top 80 at the annual Turkey Trot and you are sipping iced coffee by the empty fireplace on Christmas morning. But would we trade it for anything? Of course not.
