Hoping to get lucky this St. Patrick's Day? Well, luck is where you find it. And Dallas has a few places and things where it couldn't hurt to start looking.
The original red Pegasus
Nothing in Dallas is as lucky as this lovely, ruby mythical horse. Once upon a time, in 1934, nothing flew higher in Dallas. Then, looking as if it had partied to hard like it was 1999, it was replaced and a fair facsimile flew above the Magnolia instead. But the original Pegasus is back now, turning atop an oil derrick on the lawn of the downtown Omni, not quite as high as before. As John Crawford, CEO of Downtown Dallas Inc., said on its return: "The platform is set. Dallas is still the place where horses fly."
4 more 'luck'y spots
Eat and hang out with the lucky and you might just find a shamrock. Here are four. Don't pretend you don't see what I did there. Four-leaf clover, lucky, luck?
Truluck's, 2401 McKinney Ave., Uptown. Any day with seafood is a lucky day. But make sure you dress appropriately.
Lucky's Cafe, 3531 Oak Lawn. It seems as if for every restaurant opening, there are three closing. But this cafe has been around for more than 30 years. Maybe some of its luck will rub off on you.
LUCK, 3011 Gulden Lane in Trinity Groves. It stands for Local Urban Craft Kitchen. Get the pastrami sandwich, a signature item.
The Original Good Luck Karaoke Oliver Peck, DJ Hammertimez and George Quartz, always in character (recently, for example, they were the Gallagher brothers from Oasis), lend an assist with whatever seems necessary for karaoke participants every Thursday at Twilite Lounge. 2640 Elm St., Deep Ellum.
