Big News at Swine & Swill HQ!

October 24, 2016
Big News from The Swine Team | SwineAndSwill.com

If you’ve noticed things have been a bit silent here on the blog, it’s because Swine & Swill has been working through a huge development that should turn out to be as much of an adventure for you, our readers, as it has for us!

Last month, I accepted a job as an English teacher in Korea, just north of Seoul. So I’m living in Korea!! Woohoo, right?!

Now that the dust is settling on our move out of our shared place in Dallas, we hope to get back into a better blogging rhythm.

DISH Preston Hollow doles out fancy flights

April 8, 2015
DISH Preston Hollow in Dallas serves up flights of all stripes | SwineAndSwill.com

I had a tremendous lunch the other day at the new Preston Hollow offshoot of modern American cuisine haven DISH (the original is off Cedar Springs in Uptown), which was sublime not only because the food was just as well-executed and thoughtful as at the original, but because the sips were somethin’ else. Specifically, as I perused the aperitif menu and couldn’t decide which to get, my server piped up and said the bartender could make me an aperitif flight. Que?! “Sign me up,” I thought.
