I woke last week and had this crazy craving for some home cooked BBQ. Here I am attempting to become a vegan to no avail. This srumptuos BBQ Joint is right here in my own little City … calling my name!!! Oh, NO …
Big Ray's is a family owned business.
They serve a delicious blend of smoked meats, while providing excellent customer service.
Their meats are slow cooked providing a tender and juicy flavor that truly melts in your mouth.
Complimented with their tasty sides and homemade desserts. They have outstanding prices. I give them 2 thumbs up!

I had the privilege to attend a movie at the exclusive theater -iPic of Fairview,Texas.
IPic Theater is an Upscale Movie Theater offering a selection of comfort, technology and service to all guests. It is dinner and a movie plus seat-side service all in one. They provide fresh ingredients on a full menu with a Signature drink – full bar. This is one luxurious cinematic experience!
They offer a variety of upscale services such as picking your seats when you buy your tickets online, a lounge to eat freshly prepared meals, and a fully stocked bar. After being escorted into the theater, moviegoers will enjoy a full reclining plush chair. A gold –standard experience that will make you feel like you’re in a private screening room.
Guests can sit on recliner seats equipped with a blanket and pillow while receiving in-theater food and beverage service the first 20 minutes of the film. Prices for these premium plush seats are affordable for the entertainment and service provided. Guests can also purchase tickets for regular seats without in-theater service.
Guests can dine at the Lounge, where several TVs accompany a menu of signature food and drinks. Should you want to impress a date or the family for the holidays, this is definitely the place to go. iPic has a great social pad where you can sit and chat with friends and eat some tasty treats.
I was escorted into the theater and was given premium service. I especially enjoyed the Illegalito Signature drink. It tasted like pineapples, mint with a splash of rum. I nibbled on some savory sirloin trio burgers with sweet potato fries. After my meal I was given a bag of popcorn to end my movie. It was a true upscale movie experience. iPic will be hosting a New Years Eve party with all the bells and whistles. This is definitely a great, safe place to enter the New Year.
Hope to see you there!!!
Allen Premium Outlet is an extremely great place to shop during the week. It is one of the nicer outlets in the D/FW area. The reason I go during the week is because it is impossible to park and shop during the weekend. One of my major complaints is the ability to park and shop at the store across the way without having to walk the complete circle and having to keep going to your car to make shop-drops because if you don't, by the time you get back to your car, your arms will be sore from one store to the next for having to carry all of your bags for blocks until you get back to your car. My suggestion to them would be to have rent-a-strollers for your bags and construct a bridge walkway from one side to the other.. maybe even a nice sitting park area in the middle would be great! Until then… I'll be shopping during the week. Allen Premium Outlets 820 West Stacy Road-Allen, TX 75013-(972) 678-7000
For the best in Tex-Mex Grill you must go to Jalapenos Grill in Allen,Texas. Jalapenos has the most hospitable staff. The owner gives his own personal service and is attentive to detail. The food is always fresh and they will accommodate your plate to your liking. I love their Happy Hour heehehee… those infamous Texas Margaritas are the bomb. Jalapenos has a sports bar area with big screen Tvs everywhere… They make sure you don't miss game time when you want to run out to grab some nice home-cooking. The prices are very reasonable and $$ affordable and the best thing about Jalapenos is they are family oriented. If you are an Allenite and haven't visited Jalapenos Grill in Allen, you are missing a diamond in the rough. Should you come out to Allen TX to shop at the outlet mall, make sure to make a detour from all of the chain restaurants to Jalapenos Grill. See you there!!! Jalapenos Grill 121 N. Greenville Ave. Allen, Texas. (214) 383-0215 www.jalapenosmenu.com
