For those who love Southern cooking, Blues and Jazz,  Buttons Addison is the place to be tonight.  One of my favorite musicians, Shelley Carrol, of the Duke Ellington Band, and Verb Culture are presenting "A Night at the Cotton Club."  This is an opportunity to enjoy delicious food and extraordinary music performed by top notch musicians.  For one night only, you will be transported through music to the era of Swing, Duke Ellington, and The Cotton Club. As of this writing,  a few tickets are still available.  I'm headed out the door!  See you there!

Almost a year ago, I wrote about a new Addison frozen yogurt shop, Sweet Frog. When it first opened, I rejoiced! Finally - a local froyo establishment, and one with the syrupy walnut topping I like, too. Those "wet walnuts" (as we called them back in the New Jersey of my youth) are hard to find. After only a few months, the wet walnuts disappeared from the toppings bar. The staff told me they had changed distributors and the new distributor didn't carry them. I still went to Sweet Frog, but not quite as often. Now, the story has a happy twist. I recently met Jim Hoag and it turns out he's the new owner of  Sweet Frog in Addison (and a couple other locations). When I lamented the loss of the wet walnut topping, he assured me it's back on the toppings bar. The frozen yogurt is self-serve,...

Even in a great sellers market, condos can be a challenge. It's easier when there are cash buyers, but anyone requiring financing can be met with seemingly insurmountable obstacles. Is the condominium complex on the FHA Approved List? If not, sellers can eliminate a huge number of potential buyers: those who are qualified for an FHA loan. For those buyers who are pre-approved for a conventional loan, the lender will obtain enough information to complete a "condo questionnaire" to determine if the complex is warrantable.  Examples of what they're looking for include whether there are enough cash reserves, if any one person or entity owns more than 10% of the units, and if the ratio of owner-occupied vs investment properties is acceptable. In some instances, if the anwers are not acceptab...

It's My Active Rain Anniversary Today - 8 Years! On December 23, 2006 I became a blogger and wrote my first post on Active Rain. What an adventure this has been! From completing 30-Posts in 30-Day Challenges, to participating in real estate video contests, to reading the great content shared by others, and to my fellow bloggers, I've enjoyed the time I've spent on the site and the education I've received here. I love getting phone calls from strangers asking me questions about things I've written, such as the local no-kill animal shelter; the annual Kaboom Town fireworks on July 3rd every year in Addison (I don't like those calls on July 4th asking me where everyone is); local restaurants; and especially those calls asking for real estate help. Just last week I was reminded how powerful...

Home For The Holidays in Addison, Texas Have you seen what's going on in Addison's Vitruvian Park? It's a festival of lights! The Vitruvian complex, located at 3850 Vitruvian Way, Addison TX, contains a 12-acre park. With more than 550 trees, each wrapped with LED lights, you'll experience a riot of color. Last year, UDR, the developers of Vitruvian, used 1.2 million lights, but that number had to be increased to 1.5 million due to the growth of the trees over the past 12 months. Vitruvian Lights are on every evening, now, through January 1, 2015. In addition to the free light show, there are free special events: Mars Hill (Saturday, Dec. 6), Dallas String Quartet (Saturday, Dec. 13), and Chris Rivers Band (Saturday, Dec. 20). To get to the park, from I-635, take the Marsh Lane exit and...
