The Old Red Museum: Discover Something New About Dallas

November 25, 2014 1:58 pm

The Old Red Museum is a fascinating landmark for anyone interested in the history of Dallas. The museum is located on top of the beautifully restored Old Red Courthouse, and it is filled to the brim with artifacts and literature about Dallas’s past. Each room in the museum is dedicated to a different time period, so walking through the exhibits feels like walking through the city’s history. To add to the experience, 41 touch screen computers allow you to view photos and videos and listen to interviews with prominent residents, and many include narration describing the artifacts in the room.

The Old Red Museum asks a modest admission price of $8 for adults and $5 for children, with a $5 Early Bird special on Sundays. It is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, and a list of upcoming exhibits is available on the museum’s website.

Rise No. 1: Pay Homage to French Fromage

November 18, 2014 11:17 am

Boasting Parisian-inspired decor and an artistic wine bottle centerpiece light fixture, Rise No. 1 is a French restaurant and bakery that centers around the art of the French souffle. The menu at this tiny boutique eatery offers an extensive selection of sweet and savory souffles, including smoked ham and Gruyere cheese or chocolate and raspberry.

Although the souffles really take the cake, Rise’s menu also lists fine French artisanal cheeses and petite assiettes, or small plates of classic French food similar to Spanish tapas. The restaurant’s wine and champagne flights are the perfect accompaniments to its extensive menu, and they are best enjoyed next to the outdoor fireplace on the scenic patio.

Able to seat just 92 people, Rise No. 1 offers a truly intimate and elegant dining experience in the heart of Inwood Village. Reservations are recommended.
