For a limited time only, now through Monday, February 7th, Tei-An's private rooftop will be open for the general public to enjoy. The weather's getting chilly this week so they've already planned ahead and covered it with a tent + heaters. Usually you need a membership to enjoy but this week Tei-An is waiving that requirement so all can partake in a little sake + sushi with amazing views. Can you say domo arigato? Log onto www.ArtsDistrictDining.com for a link to their site.

Slated for an early April opening, the much anticipated arrival of a new restaruant will add a new flavor to the plaza...The Commissary. John Tesar, five-star chef formerly with The Mansion, will open a wine and burger bar & bistro. And get this...it's going to feature wine on tap! How fun. Apparently it's the new thing and we'll have it here at One Arts Plaza. The menu will feature a variety of tasty, grass-fed beef burgers in addition to small plates (think gourmet cheese cart & salumi - y.u.m.). He'll be open 7 days a week, serving lunch and dinner and late night meals, for those headed back from an Arts District performance or anyone out on the town. He'll also have take-out available for those on-the-go in cool, eco-friendly packages (love). He expects brunch and burger specials on the weekends too. Ohhh...and one last thing...he's going to have a communal chef's table where people can reserve a seat to enjoy a special chef's menu so keep an eye out for a future post on where to get all the 411. Is your mouth watering yet?

Tonight, The Dallas Institute for Humanities and Culture will present its sixth annual symposium highlighting one of the most crucial but often neglected aspects of the American Civil Rights Movement: the law. In MLK, Jr.'s words, "A just law is a man-made code that squares with the moral law or the law of god. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law." The speakers tonight will include the high-profile senior analyst for CNN and staff writer for The New Yorker, Jeffrey Toobin, one of the country's most esteemeed experts on politics, media and the law. The second speaker will be veteran civil rights attorney, Fred Gray. For more information click here. FOR TICKETS: purchase online at http://www.attpac.org/ or pay upon arrival to the box office. Self-park at One Arts Plaza for only $5.

Just a quick glance at a beautiful Texas sunset taken last Friday evening from one of our residents' balconies (we get the most amazing views of the western sky from our building). They captured this a few days before this cold front we're in now hit us on Sunday. Enjoy!

Tonight, Screen Door is launching it's "FIRST MONDAY'S"...a complimentary tasting of two courses on the first Monday of each month. Chef David McMillan will create two off-the-menu items available during dinner from 5-8 pm. So you can be the "first" to try new dishes for FREE. It gives the restaurant a chance to test new innovative items from the kitchen. A sample of some new dishes can include grilled squid with avocado, blood orange, candied bacon and mustard oil or smoked short rib with carrot potato hash and grilled onion vinaigrette - yum! So it's all free but you'll need to leave gratuity and reservations are required. Call 214-720-9111 or click here to book online.
