{City Guide} Dallas

Dallas is known for its architecture (with buildings designed by the renowned I.M. Pei and Frank Lloyd Wright), barbecue and, of course, The Dallas Cowboys. However, FOF’s know it’s also home to some Fab shops, spas and suppers. Here are some of their Faves:


1. Johnny Rodriguez Salon

3. Allie-Coosh Store

    Could spend an entire week shopping at Allie-Coosh, eating a variety of cuisines, & taking food to the park to relax while reading a good book, & treating my face & body at these salons. Being able to taste the wines would be such fun-love wine. Hope that one day I’ll be able to visit Dallas & partake of all they have to offer!

    For anyone planning a visit, save yourself and skip the months of May, June, July, and August. Today (5/06/10) in Dallas the temperature reached 90 degrees, and in summer, consecutive days of temps over 100 degrees are common; in fact, the record (set in 1980) was 42 consecutive days (6/23-8/03) of temps over 100 degrees.
