PUBLISHER’S NOTE

ISSUE 37: WINTER 2020

WELCOME I

t’s a brand new year, and we’re more excited than ever.

In the first offering of Dallas Hotel Magazine in 2020, we spotlight one of the highest profile people in town.

We’ll also check in with Texas restauranteur Bob Sambol. He opened the legendary Bob’s Original Steak and Chop House, then ran it for 25 years until he checked out, sold out and moved on. But Bob’s back at the helm of the popular spot he founded, refocused, energized and he’s in it for the long haul. We’ll take a look.

Meet the talented man behind the podium in the brightest of local limelights leading the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Ladies and gentlemen: meet Fabio Luisi.

You’ll meet a Dallas doctor whose medical breakthrough can be held in one hand and may provide game-changing results for victims of sudden cardiac arrest.

Then, we head to America’s “left coast” for a tour of a new California winery with roots that extend all the way to Dallas, and on to County Clare, Ireland. Native Texans Barbara and Jim Moroney’s Sixmilebridge estate in Paso Robles has a bright future, with an historic back-story to share.

Plus, we devoted a number of pages to one of the area’s most important attributes appropriately labeled Destination Dining (after all, a few months ago Dallas was named Bon Appétit’s top U.S. city for cuisine).

Welcome to a new season, and a new edition of our magazine.

Photo - Chip Richie

The new Holocaust and Human Rights Museum was years in the making. Learn all about the benevolent mission behind the gleaming new facility in Downtown Dallas.

Check out The Scene -- the best “who, what and where guide” available, and like none other in DFW.

We have details on over 100 carefully curated events per month to help fill up any social calendar with concerts, festivals, dance, Broadway performances and more all around the area, scheduled on nearly every night of the week. North Texas is a well-known international sports mecca. We also provide complete listings of the area’s schedules including NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, and the Dallas Stars of the NHL, as well as a full slate of college sports, in addition to the numerous recreational options. Ready? We also provide details on a wide selection of chic restaurants, extraordinary shopping, and more. And, as always, enjoy this brand new edition of Dallas Hotel Magazine, with our compliments. It’s the “definitive guide for discerning visitors to Big D.”
