A new spot for healthy eats heads to Richardson
A fledgling fast-casual chain Coolgreens is bringing its healthy eats to Richardson’s CityLine development this fall. The Oklahoma-based eatery already operates a DFW location in Southlake. Diners will find Caesar salad, pesto chicken and salmon club sandwiches, kale quinoa bowls, and Southwestern flatbread with chicken, black beans, corn, and roasted poblano peppers.
Windmill Lounge is getting a revamp
The no-frills dive bar on Maple Avenue in the Medical District will soon be revamped into M.D. Tavern, a play on the initials of its locale and many of its clientele. The new owners, who also own the Ivy Tavern on Lemmon Avenue, bought Windmill Lounge in 2017. They promise to keep the tavern feel, but they’ll serve food and open in time for lunch. Diners can expect burgers, sandwiches, and Southern dishes including boudin balls, as well as upgrades to the patio, interiors, and more TVs for game day, CultureMap reports.
A Pokemon-themed bar heads to Dallas
Apparently, Pokemon fervor has not died down — a bar devoted to the anime empire is headed to the Dallas area this January, reports GuideLive. The Poke Bar is embarking on a tour of North America and Europe with food, booze, interactive games, and “card battles” in tow. Tickets range $35 to $55 per person in other cities with a Pokemon-themed burger and drink included. No word yet on how much it will cost to gain access to the in-person Pokemon experience in Dallas, but those interested can check out the pop-up’s website for updates.
