“Joey Doesn’t Share Food!”

“Joey doesn’t share food,” but now you can try the “Joey” sandwich along with all other menu items named after the cast of Friends at Central Perk in Hamilton, Texas!

Named after the iconic coffee shop from the series, Central Perk offers breakfast, lunch, coffee and desserts for the most avid Friends fan. The next time you head down US 281 make sure to stop by this adorable bistro.

Old Town Market

The Old Town Market, which happens to be one of Brian Powell’s favorite spots, is moving! A new store will be coming to Double Oak soon, with Alpha providing materials testing for the project. This new location will continue to please the public with awesome barbecue, just like the original store has since 1977.

This store for choice meats has even been recognized by world renowned chef, Bobby Flay. The owners and experienced butchers want to give their customers the best experience that simply can’t be found anywhere else.

Their new location is expected to open in Spring 2019. For more information, check out their Facebook page here.

Making Spirits Bright

Just before Christmas, members of our Dallas team took their vocal “talents” to The Traymore at Park Cities, a local nursing home that specializes in post-operative rehabilitation and long term care. The team sang Christmas carols, delivered handwritten cards to the residents, and brought a haul of blankets, socks, housecoats, board games, and beauty and hygiene products to make the holidays a little brighter.

To find out more about how you can help the residents at The Traymore, check out https://traymore.com/.
