OLD EAST DALLAS—Summer drinks don't have to be alcoholic to be refreshing (although it certainly doesn't hurt). Case in point: The fruity beverages at Fruteria Cano, like the booze-free piña colada served tropical resort-style in a whole hollowed-out pineapple and adorned with a mountain of whipped cream, a cherry and a tiny umbrella.

UPTOWN—Social media fail: Katy Trail Ice House tries (and fails) to diffuse a customer complaint with a little Twitter humor. Pro tip: Next time maybe try for sympathetic instead of facetious. UPDATE: The Ice House has since eaten humble pie and issued an official apology tweet. [Twitter]

OAK CLIFF—Get your blue suede shoes ready: Tex-Mex and mariachi stronghold El Ranchito will host its 11th annual Elvis impersonator contest on August 7th and August 21st. Each night's round kicks off at 7:30 p.m. with a $5 cover; call (214) 946-4238 to reserve. [Eaterwire]
