Warning! Realness Ahead.....

I have to level with you, dear reader, I know....I know... I seem like this uber-hip-in-the-know-UrbanMama. Well, here is my confession....I am, but only sort of!!!    Before I had a child (the love of my urbanlife) I had time and ENERGY to go out and explore and deliciously discover all of the FABulous spots I write and post about.  Now.... let's just say that I am IN THE KNOW if it has anything to do with the preschool set. For example, riding the McKinney Avenue Trolley {for free...mind you}, exploring Klyde Warren Park and the food trucks, or anything else I can sell to my 4yo is my game these days.  However, as a New Year's UrbanHubby and I will make it a point to find our own hip spots worthy of sharing.  So here is our first pick...The Hospitality Sweet.  It is a lovely little cafe in downtown Dallas, right along the DART RedLine.  400North Ervay, an Historic Post Office and Courthouse, recently converted into stylish lofts, to be exact, has a pretty rich history in its own right.  Anyway, back to my little review.  This place is a perfect lunch spot on a leisurely day.  Delicious and it is a bit romantic in that urbane sort of way.  The food is spot on and while there, you get an ambiance that hearkens back to a time, that I would imagine, downtown Dallas was all hustle and bustle, brimming with the work crowd and busy shoppers. The Hospitality Sweet is literally a few steps off DART's St. Paul Station, and a few blocks' walk from Klyde Warren Park and The Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher and The Crow Collection.  Still a manageable walk, but a bit further, is the Perot Museum.  So...make a day of it!

In order to tide you over until the next time I'm able to go exploring, check out Culture Map's 10 Dallas Hot Spots in 2014.  At least I don't feel SO out of touch...I've been to two of these picks!!  Yippee!
