    I guess it depends if she just wants to get shitfaced going from place to place or not. If she does, yeah go to one of those two. If she does not, I like the other places better.

    I feel like the meddlesome moth would be a good place for most 21 year olds to celebrate a birthday if she didn't want to get too wild.

    Although I am old and boring, so take that with a grain of salt

    I would start at Happiest Hour near Uptown simply for the view of Downtown while she is sober.

    Deep Elum would be where I would go later to go bar hopping.

    If you are in Deep Ellum, might I recommend stopping by Louie Louie’s Piano Bar at some point. Great time, especially for birthdays

    Seriously, Pecan Lodge is overrated. Go to Lockhart’s for bbq

    If you’re looking for breweries, Celestial probably has the best beer, Deep Ellum or Community probably has the best atmosphere, Braindead probably has the best food

    I agree Pecan is overrated but still puts it at better quality than Lockhart.

    Also, had Community changed their taproom in the last couple of years? Lakewood has the best taproom in Dallas proper imo.

    Yeah, again...a bit of a drive. Trying to recommend stuff near downtown.

    Totally disagree about the bbq. Lockhart has only disappointed me once. Every other time it’s been fantastic

    second meso maya and pecan lodge

    eatzis has bomb breakfast

    jakes or maple and motor for burgers

    sixty vines at the crescent is really good for dinner. ocean prime and shake shack are right there too

    stars might have a playoff game while you’re in town too

    Yeah, definitely try it. Almost all NEIPAs. Guy that used to brew the in house beer at Malai broke off and started Celestial. Definitely one of the new hot breweries in town now

    Not sure of any destination restaurants out there as it is smack dab in the middle of family land-suburbia but you can probably find some good stuff.

    lol Grapeville

    Assuming Grapevine, Mi Dia From Scratch is a great place for Mexican (not Tex Mex).

    Meat U Anywhere is one of the best BBQ places in the area but is somehow under the radar.

    Weinberger's Deli is more of a lunch place but is great as well.

    My office is 10 minutes away so if I wasn't going to be out of town on vacation that week I'd show some hospitality.

    Grapeville is actually a quite good name for that part of suburbia nowhere. Ima start using it regularly.

    That's not Grapevine at all. 10-15 minutes away though. Is BSA Headquarters no longer in Irving?

    Meat U Anywhere has a second location in Trophy Club that's closer for you.

    Roanoke has a bunch of great restaurants. Bayou Jack's is a favorite of mine but you're probably not coming for cajun food.

    The other locations suck, but the original Babe's is still legit for fried chicken or chicken fried steak.

    Classic Cafe is really good also.

    Also a lot of decent options in Southlake

    Looking for an airbnb over Labor Day weekend for the Auburn/Oregon game. Any specific areas you guys recommend and their positives/negatives(been looking uptown, downtown, and bishop arts so far) or areas you wouldn't recommend. Gonna be a bunch of guys in their mid 30's.
