If you’re seeking fresh, flavorful sushi near Gateway Plano, many locals would recommend a visit to Densetsu. This stylish yet casual Japanese fare eatery contains a truly authentic sushi bar, as well as a sleek, industrial-style dining area that feels just like a big city hot spot.

Sit at the sushi bar or one of the wooden dining tables and order the popular tempura soft shell crab as an appetizer before moving on to creative maki rolls like the Dynamite roll, baked lobster roll, or Red Mountain roll piled high with colorful toppings. Udon noodle soups and the Superman Burrito are also popular menu options for those who don’t prefer sushi, and the full bar offers enjoyable adult beverages to pair with your meal.

While it gets very crowded on weekend evenings, Densetsu’s airy atmosphere feels lively rather than cramped, and it makes a great backdrop for a first date or dinner with a large group of friends.

Tasty Tails is a fast-casual eatery serving a largely seafood-based menu of Creole cuisine classics from New Orleans and all across Louisiana, from boiled crawfish to spicy gumbo with chicken and Andouille sausage. In addition to traditional Creole favorites, you’ll find unique, contemporary items like calamari fries, crawfish pie, and overstuffed po'boy sandwiches with your choice of meat or seafood. Combos make a convenient and affordable way to taste a variety of different types of foods, and there are even sacks of live crawfish available for purchase should you wish to host your own crawfish boil!

While its location in the local Asian food market may seem unassuming, inside, Tasty Tails is colorful, modern, and just as welcoming as the old-fashioned eateries along New Orleans’ busy streets!

Nifty Tricks for Hanging Photos — Without Sacrificing Your Security Deposit

August 11, 2015 3:03 pm

If you want to decorate your walls with photos or artwork without filling your rental with nail holes, there are a number of other ways to hang frames. Check out these creative alternatives to the usual photo-hanging methods.

  1. Adhesive strips. Venture out to any home goods store or supercenter and you’ll likely find adhesive photo-hanging strips made just for renters. These strips come in two pieces and have a sticker on one side that attaches to the back of the frame and to the wall, and they have sturdy Velcro on either side that enables you to securely hang your frame. Once you move, simply peel them off the wall with no damage done.
  2. Picture rail hangers. Many older homes come with picture rails on the walls, which make it even easier to hang frames. Simply buy decorative wall hooks from just about any home goods store.
  3. Poster putty. If you don’t mind going sans frame, poster putty is a great temporary way to hang photos or large posters on the wall without the pesky nail holes.
  4. Monkey hooks. These are a longtime favorite of renters because although they do make a hole in the wall, they’re much sturdier than the usual nail. This means that they’ll hold your frame with a lot less potential damage, and the holes they leave behind are a lot easier to cover up once you move.
