I just came back from a week in Dallas. It wasn’t too hot or humid out there, which was nice because the previous week was in the 100s. I stayed at the Hilton Anatole, which is a nice hotel for conventions, but not so nice for business travelers. During my stay, there was a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders slumber party, some big foreclosure conference, a Fire-Rescue International conference, and a modeling event.
For restraunts, two places stick out. Panchos Mexican Buffet, and The Alligator Cafe. This was the first time I’ve been to a mexican buffet, and I think it will be my last. The Alligator Cafe was awesome, I had the shrimp and oyster gumbo, and the alligator and chicken jambalaya.
Transportation to the hotel from the airport was via the Super Shuttle. Because its per person, its cheaper to take a taxi if you are with someone else.
The Planet is a big server colocation company in Dallas. I have several servers with them, and I’ve always wanted to see their faciliities. Unfortunately, I was always busy during the day, and I never could setup a tour. Hopefully on my next trip out there I can arrange one.
