Dayglow Plays at the House of Blues in Dallas

Average temperature low and high: 58°- 79°
Whether it's watching the Dallas Stars play hockey at the American Airlines Arena or catching a show at the House of Blues by an up-and-coming musician like Dayglow, Dallas always has something going on. In such a diverse city, food is something that brings the whole DFW metroplex together. A prime example of this is Royal China, a restaurant whose enduring popularity has lasted since the 1970s.
