I want to alert you to something you probably already know: Dallas CultureMap is live and fabulous. The launch happened about the time of my son’s wedding, which gave us extra reason to celebrate. And you will be seeing some exclusive work from your’s truly over there, like this look at how high profile Dallas Divorce is affecting our real estate market. I dredged up six chi chi Dallas divorces and described where they live — in some cases, lived. (Do you really think it was the disco that caused the Peyton divorce?) Gorgeous as those million dollar plus homes are, they were not enough to keep the I in “I do”. I also offered up five things to know about the Dallas real estate market, and some House Porn. And there is so much more where that came from!
I LOVE CultureMap and you will too — it is what a real-time web magazine news source should be. My Houston friends RAVE about it, ditto Austin. There are gobs of great writers over there, friends like Jennifer Chininis who runs the editorial show, Claire St. Amant who brought us that fabulous story on the you-know-what over at ESD — oh and Claire is totally keeping up with the next chapter in that saga, plus great scoop on Parkland Hospital. There is Rachael Abrams who does society and culture fabulously, Jonathan Rienstra who is soooo cute, Alex Bentley, Molly Cain social media guru, and my dearest Teresa Gubbins who is the best food critic in town. Teresa don’t like it, even Bree doesn’t eat it. Oh have you missed the sass of Merritt Patterson? Go bookmark CultureMap and check in every morning, noon and night, right after CandysDirt.com. CultureMap will tell you everything you need to know about life in Dallas, from Frankford Road and north to Oak Cliff and Lancaster from a huge staff of talented, motivated contributors who will rock you with news and nitty gritty. Because you know, that’s what we are supposed to do!
