Amateur food critics, this is your week. I’m willing to bet your Instagram is a colorful and curated feed of Dallas’ ever-expanding culinary scene.

Do you have your thumb on the pulse of Dallas’ nightlife? Are you the go-to connoisseur in your group of friends on the newest lounges and best dive bars? Let your fellow Dallasites in on the best the city has to offer after dark by putting your expertise to good use. This week, we’re asking you to name your nightlife favorites, from delicious cocktails and dog-friendly bars to karaoke spots.
You can vote for your favorites once every 24 hours. Cast your votes using your desktop, laptop, tablet, or mobile device.
You may notice that we’ve switched things up a bit this year. Instead of voting for finalists, you have the option of writing in your nominees. For every category, tell us who you think is most deserving. For each category, the nominee with the largest number of submissions will be named the winner.
But keep this in mind: we’re only looking for locally-based entities. We want to celebrate the best of Dallas, so large, national chains (Starbucks, Chili’s, etc.) will not be considered.
Throughout the next few weeks, you can vote for different categories. If you want to weigh in on the top restaurants, bars, and lawn care services, check out the schedule below.
Nightlife: May 2 – May 8
Food & Drink: May 9 – May 15
Services: May 16 – May 22

Last week, you told us your favorite places to shop. This week, we want to know your take on Dallas’ culture. Where’s your favorite place to catch a game? Who do you incessantly follow on Twitter and Instagram? What’s your favorite museum? We want to know.Read More
Mostly, our relationship consists of us telling you about cool places to eat, shop, experience, and see. But now it’s your turn to tell us your favorite spots around the city.

Leon Bridges is a good person. He was the surprise guest at last night’s best of Big D party at the Bomb Factory. After Tim Rogers got on stage to thank sponsors, crack Philip Kingston jokes, and say all the things you have to say when you’re the tux-toting editor of the city magazine hosting the party, he asked Bridges to join him. Spinderella’s birthday is this week, and before the DJ brought the evening to its finale, Bridges was to surprise her by singing happy birthday.
Bridges looked sharp, of course. He wore a crisp grey suit, a white collared shirt with a skinny black tie, and black patent leather shoes. He took the mic, led the crowd in a brief acapella rendition of “Happy Birthday,” waved to his fans, and exited stage right. He was a good sport to make an appearance for us, especially in light of his ever-busy schedule, which saw him performing in the UK last week and will bring him to the West Coast later on this week.
But that’s not why Bridges is a good person.Read More
If you joined us last night at the Bomb Factory for the Best of Big D party, you’re probably moving a little slowly this morning. Get some coffee. Have a Dirty Dusty at lunch. You’ll be okay.
If you didn’t join us, you’re probably wondering how it went. To satisfy your curiosity, I offer you the above picture of Brendan Higgins, former CBS Channel 11 morning anchor. As everyone knows, the severity of a thunderstorm can be judged by ABC Channel 8 weatherman Pete Delkus’ shirtsleeves. The higher up his arms he rolls them, the worse the weather will get. A similar phenomenon occurs with Higgins’ clothes. The lower he unbuttons his shirt, the better the party. Last night, as you can see, was a three-button party.
Thanks to everyone at D Magazine and the Bomb Factory who made it happen. And thanks to our sponsors, too: Ben E. Keith, See’s Candies, Pinstack Bowl, and Topo Chico. Congrats to all the Best of Big D winners. Let’s do it again next year.Read More
