Afternoon: After partying all weekend you deserve a break, so head to The Rosewood Mansion on Turtle Creek for a luxurious (and we mean luxury) day of R&R. There are a range of spa offerings, including manicures, pedicures, and massages on offer. And you can grab a delicious bite at the mansion's terrace restaurant or for quick fare, the bar.
Evening: It's finally time to get your hands on some Dallas barbecue, so head to Terry Black's BBQfor the real-deal (don't miss the brisket).
