Goga! September 27th

Joining us in September is the multi-talented artist Goga. With heavy influences from the likes of Marvin Gaye, Carlos Santana and Buddy Guy, Goga is a unique and skilled artist who draws from his influences a powerful mixture of R&B, Latin and soulful jazz.

Goga performs hits ranging from Carlos Santana to Andrea Bochelli in, amazingly, twelve different languages! Goga also has original music from his forthcoming CD Color of My Love. Put this together with his ability to play guitar and piano and you have a musical event you cannot miss!

Come out to the Plaza on Saturday, September 27th for this fantastic show.

Jorge's Update

You can cut it with a knife, the suspense I mean. Jorge’s is planning on officially opening on Aug. 26. They will open for breakfast only on the 26th, then breakfast and lunch until Labor Day. After Labor Day they will be fully open: breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Good things come to those who...yeah, yeah..I'm really craving some Tex-Mex!

Tei An Now Open!

Yes, it's true Tei An is finally open for business. I promise you it was worth the wait. You can't get this kind of food just anywhere in America, much less in the heart of Texas.

The sobalier, the soba noodle chef, is a time-honored craftsman (like the sushi chef but with noodles).

The story of the soba noodle is actually very fascinating. Soba noodle tradition originated during the Edo period of Japan where inhabitants were more susceptible to beri beri because of eating large amounts of white rice which is low in thiamine. Thus eating thiamine-rich buckwheat noodles became a way to combat this deficiency. 1

Cooling Down Update

Well, we've done some tweaks to the August calendar. By moving some shows from the 7-9 slot to the 8-10 slot, we've spared the performers (and audience) the agony of the blistering Dallas heat.

Also, Dallas Black Dance theater will be moving from their Thursday performance. Instead we're bringing you two talented jugglers: Brad Johnson and David Slick. Brad is performing this Thursday, August 7th; David will perform August 14th, 21st and 28th.

More updates will come as we try and work around the inferno known as Texas summer.
