Eat:
Make a rez at one of the hottest new spots in town this month. Graduation and wedding season are upon us, as is Father’s Day, but you don’t need an occasion to toast the good life at one of our local favorites. The Independent Bar & Kitchen in the Deep Ellum district has been written up in Eater, Culture Map Dallas, and elsewhere. Chef Andrew Dilda serves up European pub fare with a modern twist — it might be hot outside, but there’s no denying yourself pickle fries, mussels frites, or a proper Shepard’s Pie when you can wash it down with a variety draft beers.


Play:
Gamers unite! The Let’s Play Gaming Expo happens this month in Plano and promises to be a good time for all. Inspired by the YouTube “Let’s Play” videos, the expo celebrates gaming in all its glory with over 85 vendors, more than 90 arcade cabinets, indie developer displays, and so much more. There will also be tournaments, challenges, video game panels, and some super-special guests. If you’re spending most of that time in your fabulously redecorated Dallas home playing video games, get off the chic couch and head over to the Expo June 18th and 19th in Plano. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door; children 12 and under are free with a paid adult.

 

Listen:
