Celebrating Fall’s Arrival In Grapevine

Celebrating Fall’s Arrival In Grapevine

Boredom had officially set in this past Sunday and I needed to get out of the apartment-FAST. It was rainy and I wanted to be out celebrating that my face was no longer going to be melting when I stepped outside. Gene suggested we go explore Historic Downtown Grapevine since he’s over there for work all the time and as usual with his suggestions, it didn’t disappoint. It just feels like you are taking a step back in time and it’s so…slow, but in the best way. Grapevine is just overflowing with history and culture. We loved it!

Trinity Groves is what I like to think of as the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow-or bridge, specifically the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. This bridge, which has quickly become a staple of the Dallas skyline, opened in 2012 and serves as a beacon that points us all to the most awesome food & culture that West Dallas is becoming. Trinity Groves gives new startups the opportunity to take their ideas to the public & successful restauranteurs who in the end, could make them just as successful. It’s truly an amazing concept that helps grow our local businesses, community and economy. It’s definitely not hard on the eyes either. I have seen so many pictures at Christmas time and I cannot wait to come eat among all the gorgeous lights. But for now let’s just focus on the food.
