Start off with a fried appetizer of golden zucchini, mushrooms, or pickles ($8) before saddling up for an entree. The hopping 14-ounce house-seasoned rib-eye steak takes a grilling over an open flame before being finished with warm garlic butter ($16). Southern-fried steak or chicken is smothered in cream gravy and served with garlic-mashed taters and buttered breakfast toast ($10 for either). All entrees come with a choice of two sides, offering guests a posse of veggies, such as okra, sweet-kernel corn, and the official vegetable of Texas—mac 'n' cheese. Early risers can treat themselves to II Brothers’ breakfast menu, chock-full of biscuits and gravy, pancakes and omelettes, and the crispy stuffed Brothers' toast, which stuffs flash-crusted texas toast with sweet cream cheese, fruit, and ham, bacon, or sausage ($10).

Beyond the glowing plate glass of the Dallas City Performance Hall, the Dallas Chamber Symphony is often hard at work devising ever-more-intriguing ways to welcome people into the world of symphonic music. Its director often places the symphony's talents against the canvas of live silent-film screenings, dance performances, and other media, along with the more usual work of pairing well-known pieces with contemporary compositions. Beyond concerts, the group also reaches out to the community by sponsoring musical competitions, holding pre-concert talks, and tossing staff-paper airplanes into open windows.

A flat-screen TV casts its photons upon leather couches that would make clouds jealous with their fluffiness. A coffee table anchors the spot, and it's only a small corner of the bar and grill. Beyond this bastion of basement-like coziness, Sharky's Bar & Grill houses more high-definition big screens, nine pool tables just waiting for the next bold belly flop, and those two other classic crowd-pleasers: food and drink. The kitchen staff prepares pub fare such as burgers, brats, and pizza. They also serve frosty beverages on the brand-new patio or invite guests to play bar games such as darts, NTN trivia, poker, and shuffleboard. Professional hockey-, football-, baseball-, and soccer-watching parties occupy Sharky's busy events calendar nearly every weekday, while weekly karaoke and pool nights let patrons show off their singing skills or well-honed eye-hand coordination.

Savour Kitchen & Cocktail Room serves everything from decadent 24-ounce prime, dry-aged, bone-in rib eyes to exciting shrimp- and cheese-stuffed jalapeños. Duck-confit quesadillas, with serrano peppers, tomatillo salsa, and cumin-infused crème fraîche, for example, turn a bar-food staple on its head. The chefs also drizzle sour-cherry compote over pork chops and leave crackling pork shank covered in spicy barbecue sauce like the models in the first scene of a commercial for laundry detergent. That same inventive spirit shines on the cocktail menu. The limoncello collins, a reimagining of the tom collins, calls in the tart liqueur to complement biting sprigs of mint and a mist of carbonation. Thursday through Saturday, customers can also enjoy adult contemporary light rock in the bar.
