We had a blissfully uneventful trip to Dallas. The skies were beautiful and I had a wonderful sense of peace as we floated above the clouds. We grabbed a cab right outside the airport in Dallas and were on our way to the restaurant. We had a little bit of time to kill before our 11 o'clock reservations so we explored the Hyatt Hotel next to the restaurant and even walked around downtown for a bit.
The restaurant in a revolving restaurant located in the top of Reunion Tower. It was fun to know that my Mom and my Grandma had eaten there many years ago. Did you notice there wasn't a cloud in the sky? When we left home it was 28 degrees! It was a warm 72 degrees in Dallas, and felt so good to walk around without a jacket.
After walking around the nearby downtown area we realized that there were a lot of people out and about for it being a Sunday morning. Then we realized that we were in Dealey Plaza, the place where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in the early 1960's. In the photo below you can see the Texas School Book Depository Building, where JFK's assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, fatally shot the President from the sixth floor window.
In the next photo you can barely see, at the base of the streetlamp, a small white "x". This was where JFK was when he was assassinated while driving down Elm Street. We didn't have enough time to visit the museum now located in the Texas School Book Depository Building but both Baron and I decided that we'd love to return to Dallas to visit for longer next time.
Before we knew it it was time for brunch. The restaurant in located 560 feet above the ground in giant sphere that rotates. Baron and I have eaten in a rotating restaurant before, the one in Dallas seemed to rotate a bit faster. I found myself a little dizzy if I turned my head quickly. We started brunch with delicious mimosas and a beautiful view of Dallas.
Brunch was delicious! It was a tapas style, Asian inspired brunch and we tried a bit of everything. My favorite was a Crispy Eggplant dish, tasted a little more Italian inspired but it was really good. Of course the Yuzu Cheesecake Brulee was another favorite. Let's start with dessert, shall we?

After lunch we hopped in a cab and made it to the airport right on time. We had another uneventful flight back home and were happy to sleep in our own bed that night. The dogs were a little bit confused that we didn't go to work that day ;) We decided this might be our new "thing". Next time...Chicago!
