Local eateries ready to celebrate!

By Ariana Hajibashi

The 4th of July is quickly approaching, which means you’re going to need some essential supplies. Namely: good meat, drinks and chocolaty treats. Fortunately, some of Dallas’s favorite restaurants and shops have answered the call with special foods, cocktails and packages to ensure that your Independence Day goes off without a hitch.
See below for the details.

One90 Smoked Meats
East Dallas’s best meatery is smoking whole briskets and pork shoulders–enough to feed you and the whole family, or a few safely-gathered friends. Briskets cost $120 and the pork shoulders are $70. To secure yours in time for July 4th, pre-order online by Friday and swing by the store to pick up your haul on Saturday the 4th beginning at 11 a.m.
Shell Shack
This year, Shell Shack is keeping things festive by serving up a patriotic red, white and blue cocktail for just $5 from July 2-5. The special cocktail pairs a Frozen Blue Hawaiian with a Frozen Hurricane, creating an extra-cold, extra-colorful hybrid of the two tasty drinks. Stop into your nearest Shell Shack, or park yourself on the patio, and order up a cooling glass of this American treasure.
Kate Weiser Chocolates
Kate Weiser is known for her creative chocolates, and she regularly puts out eye-catching collections for holidays and other special occasions. This July 4th is no different, as Kate has concocted a red, white and blue 15-piece Independence Day Box featuring three flavors that create the American flag. Those delicious flavors are Toasted Coconut, Almond Caramel and Dark Chocolate Raspberry, and it can all be yours for $35 in store or $40 online.
