Even juicing skeptics will be impressed with Roots Juices. We’re partial to the Gin & Greens, a soothing mix of ginger, kale, radish and cucumber. It’s the perfect way to start your day before hopping in the car.
Continue your morning health streak with a calming yet fun workout. PiYo on the Wet Deck, at the W Hotel, is a great combination of yoga and Pilates, plus it’s open to the public and free. The incredible view from the 16th floor is nothing to pooh-pooh.
W Hotel, 2440 Victory Park Lane
That workout was great for your struggling abs, but now it’s time to flex your mental muscles by checking out a new exhibition at Talley Dunn Gallery--an intimate space behind Corner Bar just off 75 in Uptown. There are two different exhibitions at the gallery right now. We love Rachel Cox's photography series based on the characters that give value to small Southern towns.
Talley Dunn Gallery, 5020 Tracy St.
A sun-filled Saturday is perfect for taking a quick drive from Uptown to Travis Walk and dining alfresco at the quaint French bistro Le Bilboquet. Relax, sip a crisp glass of rosé, snack on moules marinières et frites (mussels soaked in white wine and shallots, with a side of skinny fries) and imagine yourself actually living the artist life along the Seine.
Le Bilboquet, 4514 Travis St., Suite 124
From Le Bilboquet, take a leisurely stroll down Katy Trail to West Village, a great mixture of national stores and locally owned boutiques. You won?t be able to resist great stores like Demerara, L.Bartlett, Abi Ferrin and Kendra Scott--you know you could always add another bauble to your accessories collection.
L.Bartlett, 3699 McKinney Ave., Suite 302
Hopping on the McKinney Avenue Trolley at West Village always makes you feel like a tourist in your own town, even if you’re just going a few blocks to Klyde Warren Park. The park is the ideal spot to relax, unwind from the week and finally have a free moment to flip through your two back issues of Town & Country.
Trolley on back to West Village, and take a quick drive to Oak Lawn Avenue. No "Me Day" is complete without a blowout at Dry Bar—plus a "floater" which is an amazing scalp massage for only $15 extra and complimentary glass of bubbly (or two). Remember, Dallas is all about big hair, so go for the Southern Comfort ($40) style and you’ll fit right in.
Shops of Highand Park, 4222 Oak Lawn Ave.
Now that you’re all dolled up, pop across the street to Al Biernat’s--a notable surf-and-turf restaurant favored by socialites, oil heirs, politicians and celebrities (we hear Owen Wilson dines there regularly). Take a seat at the bar to overhear juicy gossip and feast on the best lobster risotto in town.
Al Biernat’s, 4217 Oak Lawn Ave.
After an official celebrity sighting--yes Angie Harmon dines at Al’s too--you’re running late, so tip the valet a $20 and pop the few blocks over to the McKinney Avenue Theater. Kitchen Dog Theater’s presentation of Barbecue Apocalypse is a must-see. And what better way to cap off this great Saturday than by indulging in a comedy about the foibles of suburban living?
M.A.C., 3120 McKinney Ave., #100
And you think to yourself, “What a wonderful day.”
The daily grind gets to us.
We work to pay our bills, we eat to stay alive, and we sleep, well, because we have to. But what if we took a day just for us? No friends. No work. No drama. Just us. And no, we don’t mean vegging out on the sofa watching Orange Is the New Black (although that’s so tempting).
Check out our cheat sheet for a fabulous solo Saturday. Just make sure your cell phone is charged and your day bag is packed.
