Hacienda on Henderson – GRAND OPENING PARTY

haciendaIt’s about that time – Time to celebrate our Grand Opening! We have spent the last 6 weeks listening to your feedback and your comments and we have taken each to heart. We have worked non-stop to position our menu and our food to exactly what you have been asking for – we are now ready to show it off – the new menu, new sauces, new seasonings and new drinks – ALL READY TO GO! Please join us on September 29th beginning at 5pm for our GRAND OPENING FIESTA!

Hacienda on Henderson:

The Hacienda on Henderson offers a unique, casual dining experience inside a newly restored 1940’s Henderson Avenue home. The creation of local restaurant and bar entrepreneurs’ Pat Tetrick, Miles Zuniga, and Chris Faulkner, Hacienda features a mix of traditional Tex-Mex and authentic Zuniga family recipes, served up in a high-energy environment. Executive Chef Paul Delgado promises an extensive menu of both standard and culinary left turns made with the best fresh, locally grown ingredients. The idea behind Hacienda is that it’s everyone’s home, and that’s the kind of warm, friendly experience you should expect here. If it’s great ambiance and a refreshing drink you’re after, then check out the beautiful 2,000 sq. ft. covered patio, complete with a custom Mexican fountain and lush hanging plants. It’s on the patio where you’ll find the best place to enjoy one of our many specialty drinks or soon-to-be famous house-infused frozen margaritas. Come early to eat, stay late to drink, enjoy watching your favorite sports at the top-shelf tequila bar, or just come to relax on the patio. The Hacienda on Henderson…tu otra casa.

Everyday Practice of Science: Where Intuition and Passion Meet Objectivity and Logic -Dallas Philosopher’s Forum

7:30pm @ Chic from Barcelona – $4

Fred Grinnell, Ph.D., Professor of Cell Biology and Founder of the Program in Ethics and Science, UT Southwestern Medical Center. Author of The Scientific Attitude.

Scientific facts often are so complicated that only experts can appreciate the details. However, the underlying practice that gives rise to such facts should be understandable by everyone interested in science. In my new book Everyday Practice of Science, I offer a plain-talk account and demystification of science as world view and life’s work. I describe how researchers bring their own interests and passions to their work. The interplay between these interests and passions becomes the dynamic of the research community. Exploring this dynamic clarifies the philosophical underpinnings and challenges inherent to the scientific knowledge-building project.
