Last Friday we packed up the puppy and headed for Dallas. Specifically to the Arts District and the Dallas Museum of Arts for their Arts and Letters program. Specifically, Don Winslow is in conversation with Harry Hunsicker. Winslow’s new book, City on Fire is part of a trilogy. The first book released on April 26th and the others will release over the next two years.
It’s a departure from the Savages and Cartel. It takes place in his own backyard. Providence. It’s mafia and I loved it.
We had a great time in Dallas. Friday night I introduced OU Boy to Campisi’s, a famous Italian spot with a notorious back room. The food was excellent as usual and we stopped by a cupcake bakery for dessert. We had a corner suite and all night long skateboarders rode the parking garage across the street. It was quite the entertainment. Coco did fine in her travel playpen.
Saturday we walked 10 miles! All over the East end and the West end. With Coco in her sling. She even peed on the grassy knoll. And yes there are idiots still out there waiting for JFK to return. We had the best gelato and affogato and the weather was hot and not windy. We watched the symphony orchestra set up and went to the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the first Methodist church. There was so much going on with Prom and graduations.
We arrived at the Museum early and had front row seats. It was very informal and a lot of fun. Winslow is one of the most humble people I’ve ever met. And his plans for after retirement are exciting.
This weekend we are staying in and binge-watching Vera on BritBox. We have dealt with awful weather all week so it’s time to calm down and get ready for another busy week.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you who are mothering!
