Bar3.jpgThe Fish Sushi Bar and Lounge and many other West Village restaurants and retailers are taking part in  Sangria Stop-N-Shop and Grape Escape this Sunday benefitting Heart House.  

"We've developed a delicious recipe for this new featured drink, Sake Sangria," said Danny Kim, manager of The Fish. "Our patio dining is open and it is the perfect spot for people-watching."  The patio faces Cityplace West Boulevard, which is going to be turned into a pedestrian walkway on Sunday, May 18th for the events.

Read more about The Fish Sushi Bar & Lounge in this article in the May edition of CEO. You can also access the article by going to and it's on the front page.  I love the bento box lunch, which is featured on Mondays for $10. Lots of great food and great atmosphere. Very Sex In the City.

Many know The Fish from the ultra-hip Houston location, which has been visited by such local bold faced names as Jerry Jones, Dirk Nowitzki and more. Here's a link to more. info. about The Fish Sushi Bar.Lounge.


4th Annual Grape Escape, featuring Sangria Stop-N-Shop,

 Benefiting Heart House Dallas


Join Heart House Dallas at the Sangria Stop-N-Shop event to be held on Sunday May 18 from 2 pm to 6 pm in the West Village. The Sangria Stop-N-Shop is a shopping and sangria-tasting adventure that will take place in more than 15 participating retailers’ shops.

Patrons will purchase a “Sangria Stop-N-Shop Passport” for $25.00 that will allow them to sample and vote on participating retailers’ signature sangrias.  The patron’s passport will be stamped by the retailer, then they will be off to the next stop to taste competing sangrias, and of course, to shop!  Completed passports will be entered into a drawing that will be held at the end of the event.  The participating retailers will donate a portion of their proceeds from the Sangria Stop-N-Shop to benefit Heart House Dallas.

Retailers supporting the Sangria Stop-N-Shop include: Accent Fashion Accessories, Avalon, Epic, Gardens, The Glass Slipper, L. Bartlett, Lucky Brand Jeans, Mei Mei’s, Optique, Pitaya, Polo Ralph Lauren, Regimens, Sale Girl, The Social House, Trousseau, and Via Pelle.

The Sangria Stop-N-Shop is held in conjunction with Heart House Dallas’ major fundraising event, the 4th Annual Grape Escape, presented by Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P.  The event takes place on the same date, Sunday, May 18, from 6 pm to 9 pm.  

Drew Pearson serves as this year’s Honorary Chairman.

The event will include a “cork pull,” cigar roller, silent auction, great food, and plenty of entertainment! The event’s hosts, Cork, Grimaldi’s, and The Fish, as well as other participating retail stores throughout the West Village, are helping to raise awareness and funds for the continued success of Heart House Dallas.

Heart House is a free afterschool program dedicated to providing a safe haven and academic support to at-risk children of low-income families, while encouraging good citizenship.
