March 4th is Fat Tuesday and Dallas is ready to party! Mardi Gras is the time of year for beads, seafood, boiled crawfish, hurricanes and King Cakes.
Here are just a few ways to get your Fat Tuesday on without hopping a 737 to Nawlins. Party on amigos!

It was 80-something degrees on Saturday, March 1. Oh what a difference 24 hours makes. By Monday morning, North Texans will see a 70-degree drop in temperatures -- with wind chills below zero.
Below. Zero. Degrees.
That's insane. Sunday's thundersleet (thunder + sleet) storm made travel difficult, shut down schools and businesses, and canceled flights at local airports.
Here are some photos from the weekend's crazy Thundersleet Storm.

I. Love. Barbecue.
I love everything about it. The smell, the taste, the experience. It's mandatory to love it if you're a good native Texan like myself. But if you're new to the area, it's something you just have to embrace.
It's our culture y'all.
Barbecue may be a noun -- but in Dallas it's the verb that means grill, smoke or prepare one of the best meals you'll ever eat! Low and slow is how it's done. In Frisco it means head on over to 3 Stacks Smoke and Tap House and let Trace Arnold, the Rib Whisperer, take control of the smoker and prepare a feast for kings and Texans alike.
3 Stacks just got a little facelift -- taking away the typical barbecue experience of weaving in and out little lines like you're waiting for a ride at Six Flags. Full service is now available by friendly wait staff who want to bring on the BBQ baby!
Living in Frisco, I can tell you a couple of things. I don't love standing in line. I do love barbecue. And I LOVE just about everything at 3 Stacks -- especially the new menu. They had me at brisket-stuffed, bacon-wrapped jalapeno peppers. Yeah man, that's the real deal. They call it a Jalapeno Fire Cracker. But that's been on the menu for a year already -- and I'm here to celebrate the newest items.
In a word: Brisket Tacos. That's all you need to know. Well, the Mahi Tacos were mighty fine too. Depends on what you're in the mood for that particular day. Loved 'em both. I also enjoyed the BBQ Cuban sandwich.
Here is a slideshow of 3 Stack Smoke & Tap House New Menu items . If this doesn't make your mouth water, you must have already eaten too much for lunch and are in a fog.

You'll find them at 4226 Preston Road, Frisco TX 75034. 469-287-9035
There's more to March than basketball, beer and Lucky Charms.
