Arlington is a city that offers a lot of interesting and unique experiences, both for its residents and for the people from near and far who come to visit. Nuzzled between Dallas and Fort Worth, Arlington is known as the Entertainment Capital of Texas for a reason.
As proud Arlington residents, we at Dr. Marchbanks’ office have composed a list of some old favorites and new finds in and around Arlington.
If you have any other recommendations, be sure to let us know so we can add to the list!
If you’re thinking about opening your own coffee place, or just want to learn how to make coffee like a pro, enroll in one of the Texas Coffee School programs.
The word has it that this school taught more than 200 coffee companies how to make proper Joe since it was open in 2008. They have a 3-day program for individuals eager to learn the mastery of coffee-making. Their class is held in a single room filled with all the equipment necessary to become one of the best coffee baristas in the city!
Registration is limited since they have small class sizes, so plan beforehand if you want to apply.
This unique store can be the ultimate experience for anyone wanting to spice their pre-party shopping up a bit. And what a better way to do it than to try some handcrafted daiquiris and margaritas to–go?
Yes, you read that right, this store offers three sizes along with gallon bags, around 15 different flavors of Jello shots, and rum-soaked gummy bears. You can imbibe and eat some tasty treats at the same time for whatever occasion you bought the goodies for.
There are “normal” drinks there as well, including vodkas, whiskey, rum, tequilas and more. And if you just prefer a good beer, you can find that too at the store in bottles, cans, cups and draft beer to-go.
