Special Government Home Renovation Loan Program using Addison Texas FHA 203k Loans.     Many people are not aware of a special government loan program that is part of the Federal Housing Administration or FHA(a department within HUD). Existing home owners or potential home buyers can remodel and update their homes without having a higher cost second lien because of this FHA loan program.         However, this loan program doesn't allow for "luxury items" in your home such as a swimming pool, hot tub, or other accessories. Repaint, remodel cabinetry in kitchens and bathrooms, add wallpaper, replace appliances and flooring and even a add a room to an existing structure (which will increase the value of the homes square footage).         One of the biggest advantages to this government loa...

Now Open in Addison: Table 13. Ready for an upscale dining experience? Table 13, located on the south east corner of Belt Line Road and Inwood Road in Addison, Texas, is the place to be. Owner Mike McRae and chef Ted Reemtsma welcomed a couple dozen Addison residents for a group lunch at the beginning of June. The service was impeccable and the food was sublime. The restaurant gets its name from the number of original Rat Pack members. The art on the walls is slightly risque and the decor is evocative of that era in Vegas. Stop by for a liquid lunch and the $3 martinis (11-4), or visit during happy hour (4-7 weekdays) for selections such as The Sinatra 3,2,1 (3 fingers of Jack Daniels Sinatra Select, 2 ice cubes, and a splash of water). The drinks are a nod to the Rat Pack's hard drinki...

Let's Put the Kabob on That! There's a new restaurant open in Addison that you absolutely MUST add to your taste-test list: Skewers. A friend and I dined there recently and happened to stumble in on the night of their Grand Opening. They were packed!  The inside dining was full, the bar was full, and both outside patios were full by the time we left.  And that's likely to be a continuing scenario as the food was fantastic! Skewers is in the old site of Fire Fly (and previously Randy White's Barbeque) at 14905 Midway Road, #102 in Addison, south of Belt Line Road on the west side of the street.  My chicken kabob  was sooooo good! It came with basmati rice and a side salata and yogurt chutney. My non-adventurous friend had one of the burgers and sweet potato fries. Skewers has a lunch buf...

Progressive Dinner Tour - An Addison Pacesetter Event. Last Thursday evening (April 10, 2014), the Addison Pacesetters hopped on a bus and headed out for a 4-stop dining experience. Our progressive dinner tour was organized by Dallas Bites Taste Tours and included eateries new to many of us. What better way to start off the trip than with wine on the bus? Our choices included a sweet white Moscato or a sweet red wine. We barely noticed the rush hour traffic around us! The first stop: The Velvet Taco on Henderson, just off Central Expressway in Dallas. With a huge selection of tacos to choose from, it was difficult to decide. I had the flank steak taco and it was delicious. The second stop: Over the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge to Babb Brothers BBQ where we had chopped beef sandwiches and t...
