COURTESY STATE FAIR OF TEXAS
A Texas tradition since 1886, the State Fair of Texas isn't your run-of-the-mill annual carnival. Whether you're a curious first-timer or a seasoned State Fair visitor, we suggest adopting the "go-bigor-go-home" mentality that accurately defines the spirit of the event. Thus, in order to properly 'do' the State Fair 'as the locals do,' a time-crunched traveler needs only to complete the following tasks:

Style & Grace “Where I’m from in Texas, Coach was the must-have brand,” Gomez said about her early experience with the designer as a teenager. When tapped to design a bag in collaboration with Coach, the artist jumped at the chance to create something that was “easy” and “big enough to fit my life!” she added. “I’m always on the move so I literally have everything

The New Classics If the Great Gatsby were here, you have to wonder which Prohibition cocktail he would prefer in the Big D. And just where might he choose to partake of it? Here are seven of our local haunts serving up some of the most authentic Prohibition-era beverages around town. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Rita Cook
AM Old-Fashioned from Grayson Social 16 W H E R E C I T Y N A M E I M O N T H Y E A R
WHERE NOW Dallas-Fort
CLOCKWISE FROM TOP: COURTESY STONEDECK PIZZA PUB; COURTESY ZEPHYR GIN; COURTESY OAK; COURTESY CEDARS SOCIAL. FACING PAGE: COURTESY GRAYSON SOCIAL
THE CEDARS SOCIAL At this speakeasyish haven south of downtown, expect Prohibition-era beverages with a twist of the modern. Start with the Bee’s Knees, a cocktail first crafted in 1874. Back then, it consisted of a blend of honey, lemon and orange juice to offset the bitter bathtub gin typical of the 1920s. While no one is sure of the origin of this little ditty, it was a Prohibition staple. The Pimm’s Cup, however, came about much earlier, in 1823. It calls for Pimm’s, simple syrup and lemon juice. OAK A 15-year veteran of the industry, James Slater, lead mixologist at Apheleia Restaurant Group (Oak, El Bolero, Quill, Pakpao), makes a living creating innovative drink recipes. Nevertheless, some of his favorite cocktails are the original classics made popular during the Prohibition era. At Oak, Slater stays true to the iconic recipes of the 1920s by keeping it simple: his favorites include the French 75, which he suggests to those
unsure of what to order. Bright, crisp and great to drink year-round, The French 75 is always a winner. Slater’s rendition is served simply—shaken, ice-cold and poured in a flute and garnished with a twist of lemon. STONEDECK PIZZA PUB Stonedeck Pizza Pub in Deep Ellum has house-infused moonshine, a genuine American spirit that has Prohibition written all over it. Co-owner David Haynes infuses the moonshine himself, creating inventive flavors such as pumpkin spice, country peach, Dreamsicle, blueberry pancake and lemon ginger. For patrons who can’t decide on one variety, the moonshine is available in flights. Haynes also incorporates moon-
shine into many of his libations, including the spicy raspberry sour made with habañero moonshine, house-made sweet and sour and raspberry syrup topped off with sour ale and a fresh jalapeño slice. NOLA BRASSERIE The bartenders at NOLA Brasserie in downtown Dallas serve an authentic, handcrafted Sazerac that tastes purely of New Orleans.
the Old-Fashioned with Buffalo Trace Bourbon, orange bitters, vanilla beans and house-made vanilla syrup.) The much-loved Aviation is also a fan favorite, with Botanist Gin, Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, fresh lemon juice and crème de violette. BIRD CAFE One of Fort Worth’s favorite patios in Sundance Square, Bird Café offers an
Zephyr Palmer Cocktail
The Sazerac is one of the first drinks that comes to mind when thinking of the Prohibition era. And where better to drink this popular Prohibition cocktail than in a Crescent City-inspired locale reminiscent of the place the drink was born? GRAYSON SOCIAL The ‘spirit’ of Prohibition is alive and well at this downtown establishment, where the AM Old-Fashioned is prepared with baconinfused bourbon, maple syrup, orange and orange bitters. (We also suggest
Aviation Variation made into an eggwhite cocktail. Another favorite here is the Clothesline, which is a spinoff of the Godfather, another old-school classic. Don’t leave without ordering Bird Café’s Pimm’s Cup, which gives bartenders a virtually blank canvas on which to add their own unique flair. The drink begins with just citrus and carbonation, but a variety of flavors can also be added depending on the season.
Tailgate Tea Swap out the traditional tailgate toddy with a Zephyr Palmer: Simple, refreshing and not too sweet, the cocktail uses a nouveau-style gin infused with essences of elderberry and elderflower for a unique, modern take on the classic Arnold Palmer beverage. Here’s how to make it at home: 1.5 oz. Zephyr Gin 4 oz. Cold Freshly Brewed Tea .5 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice .75 oz. Honey Dissolve honey in lemon juice in the bottom of a shaker. Add Zephyr Gin, tea and ice to the mixture. Shake vigorously and strain cocktail over ice in a Collins glass and garnish with fresh lemon. 17

‘Deep’ in the ‘Art’ of Texas When he saw the vacant space in Deep Ellum, a neighborhood he frequents for its eclectic live music scene and community feel, entrepreneur John LaRue was initially checking it out for a separate concept entirely. The original red letters “ART CO,” which were somehow left on the storefront, beckoned LaRue to finally build a brickand-mortar space to serve Dallas’ tight-knit, music-oriented social scene to gather, mingle and enjoy visual artistry alongside local performers (with a craft beer in hand, of course). With a bit of guidance from his wife, Kari, the name, partially there all along, was born: Deep Ellum Art Company. A hybrid art gallery/bar/music venue, DEAC opens Labor Day Weekend with a Sept. 1 concert featuring Forgotten Space, Dallas’ beloved Grateful Dead tribute band, and a group exhibition called “Inhabitants” opening Sept. 2. Defined by its “dedication to the creative and native,” this new neighborhood hangout (which boasts a seriously stacked lineup this season) promises a taste of genuine local flavor in a come-as-you-are atmosphere. 3200 Commerce St., 214.697.8086, www.deepellumart.co
Music to Our Ears As if there weren’t enough music venues and entertainment destinations popping up in North Texas (and trust us: there’s Longhorn Ballroom
plenty of room for more), the largest one of the bunch will The Pavilion at Irving Music Factory, located adjacent to the Irving Convention Center, consists of a pioneering multi-venue development anchored by a boutique amphitheater outfitted with a retractable roof and state-ofthe-art acoustics. The jam-packed schedule for the Pavilion runs the gamut from Dave Chappelle (Aug. 31-Sept. 1) and Ringo Starr (Nov. 3) to Trombone Shorty (Sept. 16) and Harry Styles (Oct. 10), but there’s even more: the newly built entertainment complex also includes an Alamo Drafthouse movie theater, retailers and restaurants like Latin American local favorite, Gloria’s. 300 W.

Riverfront Restoration Nestled along the Trinity River just south of downtown, the historic Longhorn Ballroom has remained a fixture of Dallas entertainment for over half a century. During its heyday, headliners from the Sex Pistols and Willie Nelson to Ray Charles took the stage at the Longhorn, but over the last several years its prowess had been somewhat forgotten. In September, the 23,000-square-foot venue will be restored for new generations to enjoy (and for older generations to re-experience), with an additional two acres of riverside outdoor space primed to host concerts, parties, art shows and special events. The new Longhorn Ballroom’s grand opening kicks off with “Stetsons and Stilettos” on Sept. 9, a fundraiser for a local charity that features a Western music lineup and a tribute to the ballroom’s first owner, Texas country legend Bob Wills. 216 Corinth Street Road, www.longhornballroom.com

Garrett Leight [Founder/Creative Director,GLCO] Eyewear designer Garrett Leight’s eponymous label is already a household name along the West Coast and throughout upscale optical shops, known for its classic styles, contemporary details and quality craftsmanship that defies season-by-season trends. Whether or not Leight’s affinity for timeless design is a hereditary trait (his father founded designer eyewear brand Oliver Peoples), one certainly can’t argue the appeal of Leight’s understated and effortlessly cool aesthetic. This fall, Garrett Leight California Optical will open the doors of its first Texas retail store to style-savvy Dallasites in the chic-yetcharming Knox Street neighborhood. Here, the Venice Beach native and eyeglasses designer talks about how GLCO landed in Dallas and why he selected Dallas’ Knox neighborhood as the site of his first boutique outside of California and New York City. —Jaimie Siegle 56 W H E R E D A L L A S - F O R T W O R T H I J U LY / AU G U S T 2 017
Of all the places to expand the retail side of your brand, why Dallas? I traveled around the world to research where we’d go outside California and New York. Dallas spoke to me the most. It seemed the most similar city in terms of our local consumer, and it felt like it would be the safest place that the brand would translate … particularly in the Knox neighborhood. Whether it’s For Home Forty Five Ten or Grange Hall, some of the modern businesses there felt like a great juxtaposition of brands, price point and style that I didn’t see in Chicago or anywhere else. It was kind of easy in terms of choosing Dallas; it’s a great city for style, commerce, fashion and the arts. It’s such a major art community. Your father founded Oliver Peoples many
decades ago. What have you learned from growing up in the industry and watching your father build a successful retail business? What I learned is that a style that has a timeless/ retro quality and a wellmade design is the best for longevity—for speaking to many types of styles, faces and fits and for having a brand and company that can stand the test of time ... What carried Oliver Peoples is the understated classic designs that look good on everybody—somebody who’s really conservative, someone who’s really cool. I think that sort of identity influenced me for the collection, but I’d say the biggest difference is the [GLCO] brand: I’m 30 years younger and come from a totally different generation; the [brands’] roots and styles don’t have the same DNA.
What will we see from the GLCO collection this season, and in the new Dallas store? A balance of on-trend and classic pieces? You’ll definitely see balance, and we’ll continue to make classic styles. Typically we’ll see the trendy styles represented more by women. And we’ve expanded our women’s category and designs— think oversized metal or chunky acetate styles. Next season, we’re seeing more unique avant-garde: really thin cat eyes, rimless frames and then almost a late-‘90s look [with] gradient lenses. From a trend perspective, we’re seeing more light colors and metal. But we do new collaborations every season … we’re working on a custom Dallas frame for the opening in October. Discover more at
