Traipsing Around Trinity Groves

Last weekend, I began to explore more of the city that I’ll call home for a couple of years – Dallas. There are a ton of neighborhoods in downtown that each have their own vibe. I’ve yet to explore them all, but checking out Trinity Groves with my fellow Dallasites was a fun first start!

Oh, and I was testing out the camera quality of the new iPhone 6s on this little adventure…so here’s how everything turned out and Instagrammed.

Signaling our official arrival into Trinity Groves, heh:

Did you spot Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge in the back?

The area itself was mainly restaurants/places to eat. So eat we did, beginning with Babb Bros BBQ. I feel like each BBQ place that I’ve gone to has its own “specialty” outstanding type of meat. Normally I’m a huge ribs fan, but if I had to pick between the ribs and brisket that I tried, I’d have to go with brisket. It simply tasted better because it was juicier. But if you reaaally want good ribs…try Pappy’s in St. Louis! They were at the St. Louis World’s Fare last year where I consumed the best ribs of my life 🙂

More photogenic were the desserts that we found after lunch at Kate Weiser Chocolate.

Seriously, too pretty to eat.

Each piece of chocolate was like a mini painting! Angela & Kim got yuzu and passion fruit flavors:

And ohhh Cake Bar:

The line was insanely long that time, so no cake for me 🙁 But next time I’ll have to try a slice of heavenred velvet…

Full from BBQ and sweets, we said goodbye to Trinity Groves and drove to nearby Dallas Farmer’s Market since none of us had been.

Dallas was ready to celebrate fall despite the 90+ degree weather outside! If it don’t feel like fall…it can look like it, right? And so we set out pumpkins. Lots and lots of pumpkins…

In actuality, the farmer’s market wasn’t all that big compared to my experience at Soulard Farmers Market in St. Louis. Right outside, though, was Ruibal’s plant nursery where I really enjoyed browsing:

Those animal planters thoughhh!

I even got a little plant, Suzy, for my desk at work. You can bet I’ll take a picture of her on Monday that’ll be up on Instagram! Haha!

Who are my other Dallasites out there? What are your favorite neighborhoods?

A huge thanks to Angela for taking those pictures of me! In the end, I was super happy with the new iPhone 6s’s photo quality (everything looks so clear!!). It was definitely a step up from my former iPhone 5. Thanks for reading!
