Wagyu Beef: It's What Should Be for Dinner

The Sig-O and I were out for a late night date night last night at World Beer Company Bottle Shop (more about that and the awesome beers later) and Carroll from Marbleous Beef Company was there sharing bites of his fabulous Wagyu steaks. And now I think I may be a meat snob b/c me ruined us for all other steaks. The Wagyu steaks are so tender and so delicious that it really may be the only steak I want to eat. Here's a little info about Marbleous and Circle L Ranch in Waxahachie. Eat Local! Give Carroll a call, order some fabulous steaks and he'll even deliver them to you for free!

Mark Your Calendar for 60 Cent Burgers at Burger House

From the Cut & Paste via Press Release Division:
When Burger House first opened its doors on Hillcrest in 1951, Dallas was quite a bit different than it is today. With just four lanes, newly opened Central Expressway stretched just over two miles from the northern edge of downtown to Northwest Highway. Families gathered around black-and-white television sets to watch popular new sitcom “I Love Lucy.”  Still just a high-schooler in Memphis, Elvis’ gyrating hips wouldn’t send SMU girls into a frenzy for another five years. A cheeseburger fries and a drink would set you back less than a dollar.
A lot has changed in the past 60 years, but Burger House’s loyal customers know that some things are just too good to mess with.  That’s why the burgers, fries and shakes at Burger House are made the same way today as they were way back in 1951. For one day only, on December 13, Burger House will make one welcome change.  To celebrate their milestone anniversary, on Tuesday, December 13, 2011, all Burger House locations will serve their famous cheeseburgers for just 60 cents and give away special prizes throughout the day.
Burger House on Mockingbird, located at 6248 E. Mockingbird Lane, will support local schools with a French-fry eating contest for students from 3 to 5 p.m. The first student to finish their basket of fries will win free fries for a year, as well as a donation to their school.
Free burgers, fries, shakes, hot dogs, T-shirts and hats will be given away throughout the day to diners who complete an info card in store. Current patrons are also being encouraged to sport their Burger House t-shirts for the celebration. Hourly prizes, including free burgers, fries and milkshakes for a year, will be up for grabs at Hillcrest and Mockingbird locations. One grand prize winner will win a 50-person hamburger party catered by Burger House, a $650 dollar value.
