Minneapolis → Dallas
Going from Minneapolis to Dallas can feel like going to another planet due to the change in temperature, but believe it or not, they’re in the same time zone. Fortunately for me this meant little to no jet lag, and plenty of energy to explore the fine city of Dallas, Texas. Everyone that I met for the first time in Dallas treated me as if I were a lifelong friend and was so kind in welcoming me to the lone star state.
The Big D
Thanks to great suggestions from the locals, I was able to enjoy some of the city’s gems like roaming around Klyde Warren Park and watching a Texas Rangers MLB game. The cuisine in Dallas is fantastic and nothing beats an outdoor patio with live music when the hot Texas sun goes down.
Nickel & Rye
One of my favorite spots for enjoying outdoor music, Nickel & Rye, drew me with a solo artist jamming 90s acoustic songs. The nostalgia of 90s music was enough to make it a great night, but the ribs and mac n cheese made it even better.

Blues Jean Bar
Fashion trends are constantly changing so in an attempt to fit in with the styles down south, I had to stop by and visit my friends at Blues Jean Bar for a personal shopping experience. In return I set them up with a personal 360 tour for their space, which you can view here.
State Fair of Texas
In between 360 scans I took some time to visit the Texas State Fair. Of all the fantastic dishes I ate in Dallas, I can confirm that a deep fried peanut butter & jelly sandwich at the fair takes the crown. I also couldn’t help but take a stroll through the Taylor Swift experience that was setup to show off some of her memorabilia. Then, watching the sunset over Dallas from inside a cable car gliding above the Texas State Fair was the perfect way to wrap up a wonderful trip.
As a Chicagoan that loves a nice sloppy slice of deep dish pizza, I had to stop at Princi Italia to try out some Texas pie. To pay them back for the pizza tossing class, I decided to hook them up with a virtual 360 tour of the space. You can check it out the space and book your own pizza making class here.
Next Stop: Orlando
Even though father time is forcing me to grow up, I’ll always be a little kid at heart, which is why I’m heading to Orlando, FL. Stay tuned to find out which Disney characters I get to hangout with. Also be sure to check out Kapow.com for all of your client event and corrporate event needs.
