Soon — very soon — Gwyneth Paltrow’s goop pop-up shop will be gone.

It’s expected to close in Highland Park Village on Sunday, Dec. 14. That might’ve given you time tomeet the woman herself (if you were lucky), purchase a few presents for friends (if you’re not a Christmas procrastinator) and buy a few things for yourself (if money is no object).

Even if you just window shopped, goop was worth a peek. Goop is named for the actress’ fashion blog and online newsletter, and the Dec. 11 e-blast includes a “Dallas guide,” a.k.a., Paltrow’s list of favorite things to do around town. Juicy.

Now did she really visit these places? Does she have personal experiences at these places? Not so sure. But here’s what the list lists:

Paltrow & co. picked Neiman Marcus as a favorite place to shop, natch. As far as “culture,” the DMA and the Nasher are tops. She apparently digs the Katy Trail, Perot Museum of Nature & Science and the Rosewood Crescent Hotel’s Spa. More interesting, however, were the choices for food and drink. The list is basically a who’s who — or better, a what’s what — of some of Dallas’ hottest places, and we can’t say we’re surprised with her good taste.

Truck Yard: goop recommends you “pull up a lawn chair to one of the picnic tables under the breezy trees and let the face-stuffing begin.” You want to stuff faces, G.P.? In.

With a variety of seating options including benches, patio tables, and individual bar stools, the beer garden can accommodate groups of all sizes at the new Truck Yard in Dallas, TX on September 19, 2013

Midnight Rambler: The Joule Hotel bar is elegant, with bite — “somewhere between hipster and Texas classic, it says. There isn’t a hotter bar in downtown Dallas right now.

Le Bilboquet: This restaurant is called “wonderfully familiar (probably because it’s exactly like the original in New York).” Dallas doesn’t give off that New York vibe much. We’ll take it as a compliment?

The Cedars Social: The Cedars are “a little off the beaten track,” the newsletter says, but the food, the drinks and the ’70s lounge chairs come recommended.

True Food Kitchen: No big surprise here that Paltrow enjoys the healthy-eating place True Food Kitchen, especially because it’s not too far from goop’s HPV digs.

Number One: Next-door to goop is this adorable cafe and bookstore, where Paltrow’s limited-time-only goop menu was available. That one was a given, Gwyn, but also a good choice. (Number One closed in January 2015)
