Although not technically north Dallas, the Granada Theater is one of my favorite places in Dallas. Beats and Eats is in it’s second year, and you shouldn’t miss out. The next event is September 14 at 7:00pm. Chef Jon Alexis of TJ’s Seafood Market and Grill has a fantastic 5-course menu that will be paired with delicious cocktails. Enjoy music from Kirk Thurmond.
