How Dallas became one of America's most refugee-friendly cities

How Dallas became one of America's most refugee-friendly cities

- This is a Dallas that received 4,000 refugees last year — more than any other metro area. But this is nothing new. Texas’s robust economy and cheap housing make it an ideal location for Vietnamese and Cambodians in the ’70s; for those fleeing the USSR in the ’80s; for Bosnians in the ’90s. Today, it’s become home for thousands of Iranians, Iraqis, Burmese, Congolese, Afghans, Bhutanese, Moroccans, and Syrians fleeing persecution for their religious beliefs, their past work with the American military, or their ethnic identity

Giant West Dallas Art Space Opens Its First Exhibition This Saturday

- Despite the seemingly endless construction of new high-rises throughout downtown, Dallas has long been associated with wide-open space. It's always been a metropolis inside cattle-raising territory on the Great Plains, so it's fitting that a new arts incubator would take on the name Open Space. “It’s not a gallery. It’s a space with art,” says Caroline Belanger, one of Open Space’s curators

Pho Shots, Squid Ink and Carbonated Cocktails: Five Dallas Cocktails You Need to Drink, Stat

- The Have You Seen My Keys? at Rapscallion Tiki is hot right now. Unfortunately, Dallas' one and only dedicated "tiki bar" is so not. Luckily, a number of local bars — particularly Rapscallion and Small Brewpub — are upping their tiki cocktail game with cocktails with fun, inventive drinks that pay homage to tiki while offering their own unique take. One of Rapscallion's best tiki cocktails is one that's just plain fun to order (and drink): the Have You Seen My Keys?, made with rhum, pineapple juice, coconut, orange acid, Angostura bitters and a syrup made from Chicho Morada, a traditional Peruvian dark purple drink is made from purple corn, pineapple husks and spices like cinnamon and cloves

Cinestate Is Reinventing an '80s Cult Classic, and Dallas as a City Where Movies Get Made

- Contractors who'll soon be hired to renovate the 112-year-old Ambassador Hotel are strongly advised to brace themselves before they open the closets. They might find charred human remains or a foot-long prosthetic penis. For three weeks beginning mid-March, the hotel's carpeted hallways were showered with blood from cannons being fired at well-known actors. In one of the rooms, decorated with framed Christian sayings about faith and charity, a small but highly trained special effects crew created gruesome facial appliqués and stunt corpses
