This hall differs from most dancehalls in that it is in the center of town and the dance floor itself is on the second floor with a large deck overlooking downtown. Click to Read More

Lake|Flato participated in AACOG’s Walk & Roll Challenge again this year.

Restaurant Review: Feast

Posted by on 10/19/11 at 12:39pm

Feast appears to be a slightly miscalculated name for a rather expensive tapas restaurant. A new—and very shiny—addition to the Southtown scene, it joins several new establishments that focus on appetizer-sized portions designed for sharing.
