photo Friday - Dallas getaway

Happy Friday! :)

Last week, we were off to Dallas for a fun UFC weekend! :)  We made it down just in time for the weigh-ins, which were held at Gilley's.  It was a terrible idea and venue!!  Yes, it was very "Texas," and "Dallas," for an event to be held there, but you couldn't see anything since we were all packed onto a dance floor like cattle.  We were told that we couldn't bring in our camera, and our cell phones took horrible, blurry, grainy, disappointing pics.  That is, IF you could even get your arms up and around the rest of the crowd, holding up their phones as well.  It was a huge disappointment, but exciting to see the fighters.

Next on the agenda was seeing Joe Rogan's stand-up comedy show.  Again, no cameras allowed, and our phones didn't capture anything good.

The next day we did a little shopping.  I got to go to my Happy Place. :)

And we ate lunch at Gas Monkey Bar and Grill, which was awesome.  Too bad Richard or Aaron weren't there ... ;)

Then it was off to UFC 171 ...

Thanks for stopping by today, and have a great weekend! :)


  1. Cool trip! Wasn't the bar/restaurant in Urban Cowboy named Gilley's? Is that the same place?


I absolutely LOVE hearing feedback, comments, getting questions ... I look forward to and appreciate every comment you leave! :)
