Best of Dallas®

2014 Edition

It's the damndest thing. For 51 weeks a year, our staff scours Dallas looking for people doing bad and/or dumb things so we can tell you all about it.

We've got the Best of Dallas® in our grubby editor hands, and we're stepping out. Those guys you see in the club doing the bus driver? Asking for ketchup in a sushi restaurant? Yeah, that'll be us. Let's par-tay. The Editors
