So the annual Shakespeare Association of America conference is being held this weekend at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas.... As much as I enjoy attending, these people make me want to drink (and I suppose I need a bit of food to settle the stomach). Are there any interesting bars, either upscale or hole-in-the-wall, within walking distance of the Fairmont (which is, from what I gather, in the Dallas Arts District)? And what about restaurants? I've looked at Abacus and Stephen Pyle from the boards, but it is difficult for me to get a sense of where things are in Dallas. Local also seems appealing, if it is not too far. Walking distance (or a short cab ride) is essential.
