    FROM THE Winter 2019 ISSUE
     

    This unique venue in North Texas is ideal for holidays—or any time.

PINSTACK is a favorite destination for bowling and entertainment in North Texas and offers three locations in the region—Plano, Las Colinas and Allen. The state-of-the-art bowling centers feature a VIP bowling suite, a full-service restaurant, an indoor climbing wall and a twostory laser tag facility. Each 45,000-square-foot PINSTACK was built to incorporate the latest technology, and was designed with attractive and bold finishes to create a one-of-a-kind venue for corporate or group events.

PINSTACK offers meeting space with advanced audio-visual capabilities, Wi-Fi, onsite event planners and private seating for up to 200 guests. The bowling and entertainment centers provide a variety of packages for groups or on-site planners can customize an event to fit your needs. Some additional activities available at PINSTACK include bumper cars and a high-ropes course situated 20 feet above 100 of the newest video games and simulators available.

In addition to all of the fun activities, the entertainment centers offer a chef-inspired menu featuring local and regional cuisine. The menu includes an array of appetizers, pizzas, burgers and entrees like almond-crusted salmon, grilled chicken and flat iron steak. PINSTACK’s bar features a list of signature cocktails, import and domestic beer and a substantial wine selection.

For more than 300 years, ranching has been a way of life—and business—in Texas. The uniquely Texan ranch experience has captured the imagination of the world, and ranches have served as uncredited “stars” for some of Hollywood’s most iconic productions: from Reata, the fictitious ranch depicted in the classic movie “Giant,” to the glamorous Southfork Ranch, home of the primetime soap opera “Dallas.” Longhorns, horses, cowboys, rodeos, 10-gallon hats and cowboy boots: There is an alluring mystique surrounding Texas ranches.

 

In November, Dallas-based Todd Interests opened Thompson Dallas, part of hospitality brand Thompson Hotels. Thompson Dallas features 219 rooms, including 52 suites, two penthouse suites, and two culinary destinations.

 

When it comes to planning events, planners must be choosy when determining the venue. Setting priorities like location, size, and technological capabilities sets them up for a successful event, but often forces them to weed out dozens of venues due to their limitations. Although sometimes, a venue comes along that provides the perfect location, high-speed technology, and much more without having to compromise.
