V – Victory Park

a-to-z-letters-vVictory is a fairly new area in downtown Dallas.  It was a project to revitalize the downtown area. It began with the American Airlines Arena and off of that they build the W Hotel and several high rise condo’s.  In the center of it all is Victory Plaza.

My top 10 things to do list in Victory Park:

  1. Catch a game – Dallas Stars and Dallas Mavericks play in the Double AC (that’s what the locals call it).
  2. See a concert at the House of Blues.
  3. Experience New Years Eve, I’ve heard it’s like Time Square, but with fewer people.
  4. Go to the Bliss Spa in the W Hotel
  5. Have drinks at Dick’s Last Resort
  6. Have a buffalo chicken sandwich and curly fries at Hooter’s
  7. Hike the Katy Trail
  8. Have a margarita at Luna De Noche
  9. Check out the music memorabilia at the Hard Rock Cafe
  10. Watch a 1310 The Ticket Broadcast – 1310 The Ticket was the first all sport radio station in the US.  They have been on the air since 1994 and have a line up of guys, most who have been with the station since it’s inception.  If you listen to them for the first time, you wonder why it’s a sports station, but keep listening and you will get it.
The Show and it’s characters: 
The Musers – George Dunham aka Jub Jub, Craig Miller, aka Junior, Gordon Keith aka The Great Gordo 
Can’t Miss Segment:  Muse in the News, the Fake Jerry Jones and the Fake Tiger Woods
The Norm Hitzges Show – Norm Hitzges is a local legend
Bad Radio – Bob Sturm, Dan McDowell and Donovan Lewis
Can’t Miss Segment:  Gay Not Gay and any story Dan tells about he and his wife’s sex life. 
The Hardline – Mike Rhyner aka The Old Grey Wolf & Corby Davidson aka the snake
Can’t Miss Segment – Entertainment News for You, What’s on Mike’s Mind and Community Quick Hits
 
I laugh out loud all day listening to them.
