Dallas is famous for a lot of things, but one you may not be aware of is its claim to fame as the home of the frozen margarita! In 1971, Dallas inventor, entrepreneur and restaurateur Mariano Martinez invented the frozen margarita machine, adapting it from a soft-service ice cream machine. That first machine now sits in the Smithsonian National Museum of American History.

As a tip of the hat to this tasty and momentous accomplishment, VisitDallas has introduced its Margarita Mile, a self-guided tour of the most sought-after margaritas in the city. The convention and visitor bureau claims “no bottle of tequila” was “unturned” in the making of this margarita bucket list. The city’s “best and most brazen” margaritas have been curated into one colorful (and free!) app available on Apple Store and Google Play.

The Hilton Dallas Lincoln Centre completed its $24 million renovation of the entire hotel and conference center. Renovations began in 2020. 

The North Dallas conference center hotel renovation includes a full redesign of all 503 guest rooms, lobby and public areas, and food and beverage outlets. Additionally, the hotel’s 55,000-square-feet of meeting space was updated with new furnishings, technology upgrades, and the addition of a new 6,600-square-foot Lakeside Ballroom. 

 

Sheraton Dallas Hotel has introduced a new outdoor event space under its new event programming, Dare to Outdoors. The hotel’s catering team has partnered with Pacific Plaza Park, a 3.7-acre green space in Downtown Dallas. The park features a 31,950 square-foot lawn space and permanent seating, as well as night-sky friendly lights for star-watchers. Three food truck power outlets are available and standard outlets are located throughout the park.

 

Located smack dab in the middle of Dallas and Fort Worth, less than a three-hour flight from either the West or East Coasts, is the city of Irving.
