Okay, I'm not going to be shy about asking more questions. This one is for the wife though (kind of).

I need some suggestions on what/where the wife and I should do while in Dallas for those first few days of class. Kids are at Grandma's so I'm looking to take advantage of the working vacation.

I've never been to Dallas (except for the interview) and am looking to take her to some of the popular eats/attractions.

Make me a hero! :D

Thanks again!

p.s. See you next Tuesday Alcatraz and Whiff.

Do you just wanna stay in Downtown Dallas or are you thinking about going to the surrounding areas as well? The Metroplex is a very large place.

Are you going to have wheels while you're there? If so, Sundance Square in downtown Fort Worth is a great place to hang out. Riskey's has $9.99 All-You-Can-Eat beef ribs everyday and then go to the Flying Saucer to drink your way around the world in beer. There's lots to do there, theater, movies, art, plenty to keep you and her busy and having fun while free and easy without the bambinos!:beer:

PD said today that I should be three months behind you. You'll be doing IOE while I'm having fun in Fort Worth and starting my new LUV career.:D

Sorry, I'll clarify.

Yes, I will be getting a rental car. I'm going to splurge and not make her walk anywhere! If I didn't get a car, well, let's just say you would know me in class by my wife's face => :angryfire

HA!

Definitely willing to drive the local area. And you all know better than I do the amount of time we will have after class Tuesday-Friday. She'll be leaving Saturday mid-morning so we have several nights.

Eagerly waiting to read replies.....

Go to Fort Worth. I can't think of anything good about Dallas (even the Cowboys avoid Dallas!).

Fort Worth
- Stockyards
- Joe T. Garcia's (mexican food - bring cash, no c.c's, and sit outside)
- Sundance Square (downtown)

Eats...
Mexican food (upscale): Mario and Alberto's
12817 Preston Rd. (Preston @ LBJ Freeway)
(972) 980-7296

Recommend: Carne Asada for your main course, and Kahlua Pie for desert.
(Leave room on your fork for a small piece of steak combined with a little
cheese and green pepper for each bite...delicious) And the margaritas are
excellent!
She'll be impressed....welcome aboard!!!

There is a bunch to do in Dallas as well as FT worth, but FT Worth is a long drive from the hotel, more especially after a few cold ones.

Try Deep Elum, Lower Greenville or better yet here is a link to it all: http://dfwmetro.org/dallas.htm

Dude, that website has some funky music! I was sitting here listening to Sean Hannity and I clicked on that link and the music started playing. What a shock!;)

We now return to the Travel Channel...Exploring North Texas on a New Hire Budget.:D

West End

Take her to the West End some evening and spring for a carriage ride. They will give you the downtown tour while you relax and listen to the horse hooves on the pavement. Also, there are lots of good eating places in the West End.

Deep Elum is fun and funky, but crime is high there right now. Stay on the well-lit main streets.

SWA, as well as AA and DAL (when they were hiring) have the newhires bring their spouses for the first 2 days of training where they wine em and dine em.

In Dallas, Lower Greenville is a nice place to go. If you want a good quick meal there try out Snuffers. Great burgers and cheese fries. There is a place just west of Dallas called the Gaylord Texan that she might find interesting. Might wanna try a steak place too. Three Forks is reasonably priced, and you wont leave unhappy.
If you go to Ft. Worth, stroll thru Billy Bobs just to check it out. It's open all day. Downtown Ft.Worth has a mexican food place called MiCosina. Best food around. And finally if you take her to Whataburger she'll love you long time.

I dont know. I could care less. God forbid an airline actually show some sort of appreciation to a pilot and his/her spouse.
