Dallas Trip

Went to Dallas, actually Addison,  this past weekend had a blast! Got there Friday evening checked into the Intercontinental Hotel Dallas, the place is beautiful!

 There is a big spacious lobby with gift and floral
shops, Starbucks, and a wonderful fountain.
The room was spacious and comfortable, the bed was very nice...I slept like a baby! On the 14th and 15th floors there is a lounge area connected by a stair case, T.V. chairs, tables,couches and with the great view, it was a wonderful place to relax.

The concierge was very helpful on Friday evening  we were looking for a nice place to get a good steak. He provided us with a dining map of restaurants that were close by and made some very knowledgeable recommendations.

He even got us a reservation at Arthur's Prime Steaks And Seafood  a very nice but at that time of the evening, busy restaurant, within 30 minutes! The guy had skills!!
I had a fantastic time, will return again, and highly recommend staying here on your next visit to the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Speaking of Arthur's OMG...the food was wonderful!
We had their Mediterranean Salad, Filet Minon,with crab & shrimp and for dessert Grand Marnier Creme  Brûlée all with a very nice Cabernet.
The atmosphere was elegant yet simple and welcoming and the wait staff was incredible!
Be sure to check out the website and take the virtual tour!

Bob Timberlake Luggage

I am a big fan of this luggage line! It's good looking, durable, and can stand up to any "savage" baggage handler :-) No offense to our friends at the airlines.
They have been described as rugged, versatile, durable, and elegant and fit well in all those categories.

There are a large variety of sizes and shapes and comes in two lines, all leather and leather combo. There are satchels, computer bags, carry-on's, large and smaller wheeled bags, and much more!
These wonderful bags are sold at Bass Pro Shops or Bob

If you travel extensively or just occasionally this will not disappoint.
