Leave it to Rihanna to string together the best night out in Dallas: D magazine reports that the pop superstar was spotted all over Deep Ellum on Sunday. Rapper and boyfriend A$AP Rocky joined her for dinner at Oni Ramen and Bitter End, setting off a flurry of tweets from diners at both joints.

Rihanna also hung out with stylist Nini Nguyen for a girl’s night at luxury hotspot The Thompson Hotel. They ate at the hotel’s new Monarch restaurant, known for wood-roasted wagyu tomahawk steaks and fire-roasted octopus. She also reportedly ate at Harlowe MXM, and then went clubbing at Theory. That’s where Theory sent Rihanna a message, with screens that read “Drop the album Rihanna.” Maybe that will give her some creative inspiration.

DJ Khaled’s virtual chicken wing restaurant launches in Dallas

Grammy-winning artist and record producer DJ Khaled went really big with his new delivery-only chicken wing restaurant: the venture just launched simultaneously in more than 150 locations across the globe, including Dallas.

DJ Khaled partnered with virtual restaurant operator Reef to debut Another Wing (named after his “another one” catchphrase). Order from Another Wing for bone-in and boneless wings in seven flavors. Naturally, they have DJ Khaled-inspired names like “Un Un Un Believable Buffalo,” or “Honey! Honey! Hot Honey Siracha” and “They Don’t Want You To Win Truffalo” which combines black truffles, parmesan, and buffalo sauce. Sides include spicy togerashi fries, jalapeño cheese fries, truffle parm fries, onion rings, or chocolate chip cookies. Go for an “All I Do Is Wing” combo or a 10 or 24-piece feast with two sauce flavors, sides, drinks, and dessert.
