Heading to Dallas...

Im heading to Dallas next week with my brother to help him at a Fire trade show. We originally were going to meet my buddy on mon, tues and wed and hang out with him before we have to be at the show thurs but he got called out of town for work. So we have three days with no plans in Texas. We will be flying into Dallas around noon on monday and need to be back in Dallas thursday around noon. Anyone have any ideas. We are up for anything, from fishing suggestions to touristy stuff...Anyone ? we will have a rental car.

John, I was in Dallas earlier this year. Try this http://www.bep.treas.gov/locations/index.cfm/3
Best yet, I think it was free.

We also went here http://www.jfk.org/
Not so free

about 1/2 of the Texas BBQ Forum lives within a few mile of where you are going to be.. Do you know any of them?

Well there aiint nothing worth seeing in Dallas that I can recall. All I ever seen over there is heavy traffic..muggers and stuff like that. Its sorta like Little Rock in that all the normal folks go home to the burbs about 5 o clock leaving the crack and meth heads to run amock. Pack your shootin iron. Drive over to Foat Wuth in the rent car and visit the Stockyards. Always a lot of cute fat wimmen at Billy Bob's who like to dance. Sometimes they sweat a lot. Angelo's has cold beer and passable bbq from whut I heard. Never been there personally. Its on White Settlement Rd. I think. Coupla of decent Mexican Food places which would be Cantina Laredo and Uncle Julios both in Grapevine (Actually there is another branch of Uncle Julios in Foat Wuth on the West Frwy aka I-30). Get the chicken enchiladas with sour cream sauce. They really mess up on the other varieties. Dont order any Fajitas. Hope this helps.

Nobody needs to go nosing around the grassy knoll. Thats a secret spot. I think the school book building is next to London Bridge in Arizona or somewhere like that.
