Hash Over: Convenience Store Offers Organics, State And Allen Sets New Happy Hours and ZaZa Offers Uptown A Neighborhood Night Out

Ordinarily we wouldn't get too excited about the opening of yet another convenience store in Dallas. It's hard to remember the last time we griped that we had a hard time finding a place to grab a bag of Funyuns, a hot dog or a bottle of Mountain Dew (or make a lunch of all three).

But Urban Pantry isn't where you'll go for a take-out dinner that consists of Doritos and a 40 of Olde English. The store, located at 5301 Alpha Road across from the Galleria mall, specializes in hard-to-find organic and international foods along with groceries and a deli offering specialty breads, cheeses and meats.

If nothing else, it sounds a bit healthier than the Galleria food court.

Also going on this week...

State and Allen Lounge has new happy hour times and prices, offering $3 wells and $2 domestics 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 10 p.m. to midnight Tuesdays through Saturdays.

Dragonfly at Hotel ZaZa is starting a new "Neighborhood Night" happy hours on Thursdays beginning this week. Beer, wine, well drinks and select appetizers will be $5 from 5 p.m. until close. Depending on your opinion of cover bands, you'll either want to make sure to be there by or depart by 8 p.m., when Reality Bites takes the stage each week. This inaugural Neighborhood Night also includes a silent auction and raffle to raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
