This is Texas—our reputation as a friendly lot exists for a reason. But if you really want to meet people, you can never go wrong with a Starbucks or a child’s sporting event. We start ’em young!


At the Shops of Legacy in Plano, Texas, there are many great places to grab a cocktail, like Pepper Smash, Mi Cocina (get the Mambo Limo!) and Mexican Sugar, which has unique cocktails like the Chicha Sour.

While you are there, get on the list for a table atMexican Sugar, where they have great authentic Mexican food. You can also enjoy people-watching!

Any number of the area country clubs, like Gleneagles, are great for large gatherings. Outdoor gatherings are often held at nearby lakes or ranches. Our weather is great most of the year, so we host many of our large events and meetups outdoors.

We love our sports in Texas, and with projects like the new Dallas Cowboy World Headquarters coming to Frisco, the suburbs north of Downtown Dallas offer great entertainment options. The Cowboys’ project will have offices, mixed-use retail, and residential space.

If people-watching is your idea of entertainment, then head on down to an outdoor retail area like Watters Creek, find a restaurant with patio seating, and enjoy a meal and the view.
