Visiting Dallas from the East Coast for my husband's 50th B'Day - Worthy Recs?

sistereurope | Mar 12, 2007 09:33 AM

I'm going to surprise my husband with a weekend trip to Dallas for his 50th birthday (We live in Baltimore). I discovered that the Old 97's (one of our favorite bands) are playing at the Dallas House of Blues on the Friday closest to his b'day! So I booked a room at the Adolphus Hotel for the weekend - it's a total surprise. Sat I was thinking of taking him on a horseback ride outside of Dallas (he just started riding). Saturday night will be THE 50th Birthday dinner and I'm stumped. I want something fun, lively, romantic with excellent food! I've looked at Lola, Nana and the French Room (I thought that might be too stuffy for a b'day dinner, even though we're staying there and would normally most likely try it). We're more about the food than the atmosphere - but he LOVES good food so I want it to be special!!
Any ideas? Also, we arrive Friday at 6 PM. By the time we get our car and check in I'm not sure if we'll have time for a big meal - any ideas for some pre-concert food? Is the food at the House of Blues any good? Thanks - I'm really looking forward ot my first-ever trip to Texas!!
