Guest Post by Tamyra: Wanderlust: A Series of Summer Flings Dallas, Texas

According to Wikipedia, wanderlust is a strong desire or impulse to travel and explore the world. I've been a wanderer all my life, but in the last 3 years I've caught the travel bug in a major way. Being an educator affords me 2 months of unadulterated summer so this summer I took full advantage by taking 3 wonderfully whimsical trips.

Fling 1: Home is Where the Heart Is

My parents and many of my friends live in Dallas, TX. After being in the Bay and away for many months, I felt compelled to recharge and reconnect with loved ones. It turns out that going home was a great way to start my summer! While there, I was pleasantly surprised by many familiar faces and renewed some key connections. Also, true to southern form, I had a good ole time eating and drinking. Some of my favorite haunts:

Mi Cocina in the West Village has great drinks (Mambo Taxi and the Mango Margarita are tops) and great Tex Mex. It's also a favorite hangout for the professional crowd.

Glorias at the Highlands in Arlington also has great drinks and Tex Mex options. The Pomegranate Margarita is pictured above.

Bishop is my favorite neighborhood in Dallas because it's so eclectic and has so much flavor. A string of bars and restaurants have popped up. Hattie's is fab, serving up sophisticated soul food and cocktails.

Everything in Texas is bigger, including the sushi rolls. These two rolls were from a great Sushi spot, Piranha's at the Highlands in Arlington. One of the rolls even added some jalapeno for a little Texas flair.

Aside from all this eating and drinking, the best part of my trip was an up close and personal encounter with one of my favorite artist and perhaps one of the most prolific performers of our time. That's right, I buzzed my way right into the "B" hive! Bey is truly amazing and she gave a phenomenal performance 
( I mean gave life honey!) two of my favorite boo's and I had a great time. It was the best last minute decision of my summer by far.
