The Dallas Observer and The BBC!!!





Super honoured and excited to be be named the Best Gift Shop in Dallas by the Dallas Observer. And to be spotted by the Red Coats!! Thanks BBC for including us in this list of things to do in AWESOME, TEXAS!!!  



The D


Detroit.


Last year we hit Chicago for our annual team bonding trip. This year Jay-Z and Justin called us to Detroit. We've wanted to visit Detroit for several years based on all the articles we've read on the burgeoning art movement, architecture ("ruin porn seen here and here), and the sincere hope that the city finds it's bearings again. We found Detroit to be naturally heart-breaking, but there is so much hope, too. We felt so much pride in everyone we talked to. So inspiring. Here's some pics of our few short days there. 

Also, if you're ever there, get some BBQ at the awesome Slow's (talk about a business that loves it's city.) And, the coffee (especially the matcha) at Great Lakes is fantastic.



FREAKING AWESOME SHOW. 


You know we got to (1,2,3,4,5,6...)


Michigan Central Station.


Daps..


We were planning on visiting the Michigan Theatre Parking Garage but a huge section of downtown and shut down and transformed into Hong Kong for Transformers IV! Apparently Mark Wahlberg was in town!


Crossing the Ambassador Bridge for some dim sum...

... in Windsor Canada



Driving around Detroit.


White Castle. We ordered 20... 


Love EVERYTHING about this shop. Apparently they're from Dallas!


Street art.


More sightseeing.


The view from our hotel room. According to our hotel waiter, it was Jay-Z and Justin's tour bus!!!


This guy was doing stairs at Joe Lewis Arena.



Our minivan in Detroit. Love minivans.

Happy America Day


ShopDad at the excellent LBJ Presidential Library.

This Monday we had an amazing opportunity to go down to Austin. No matter what your point of view is, as second generation American, we feel unbelievably fortunate and appreciative to be here and to be able to voice our opinions freely. Later, we had a chance to visit the superb LBJ Presidential Library. We had an especially poignant moment when we walked through exhibit highlighting LBJ's contribution to The Civil Right's Movement. Our Dad pointed specifically to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, without which he would never have been able to immigrate to America in 1967. It was a pretty powerful moment for all of us. Happy Fourth of July. 


Texas State Capital.
