...V's birthday and we went out to dinner at a restaurant in Victory Park. Victory Park is the development that has been built up in the area leading up to the American Airlines Center. Initially the developers attempted to make this an extremely upscale neighborhood. That concept failed and now there are new developers looking for tenants that are upscale, but not ridiculously so.
The restaurant we had dinner at was the Medina Oven and Bar. If you are at all interested in Moroccan Cuisine, or just a nice place to try something different, Medina would be a great choice for you. The atmosphere is comfortable and friendly. Sam, the co-owner and manager, greets all the guests and insures that your meal is exceptional. All of the food was cooked to perfection and the Za’atar Grilled Lamb Chops were excellent.
Celebrating V's birthday with family is reason enough to make the evening memorable, but on this night we saw something that you don't see every day, something quite different.
Following dinner we decided to walk around and see the night sights of Victory Park. Outside of the main entrance of the "W" was parked one of these:
Seeing a Bentley in Dallas is not usually reason to comment, but this Continental Flying Spur was just sitting there with it's engine running and the driver's door open. The closest people to the car, other than us, were two police officers standing about 15 yards from the vehicle, but I could have grabbed that car if I were so inclined. Who leaves a car that is worth twice the value of my house unattended and idling on the sidewalk?
