OBSESSIONS. DECORATION. SALIENT FACTS. 26 O n a recent Monday night, nearly 70 of the art world's brightest patrons found themselves sitting down for dinner at Mirador, which had been kept open late to kick off Dallas Contemporary's inaugural SS19 Gala, chaired by Forty Five Ten's Kristen Cole and collector Kaleta Blaffer Johnson. (Save the date: Friday, April 5, at the Dallas Contemporary's Design District space.) Midway through the appetizers, Cole made a string of whopping announcements. She revealed the formidable honorary chairs: Mario Sorrenti, whose exhibition FASHION MANIA AT DALLAS CONTEMPORARY W hen Tina Craig launched Bag Snob in 2005, fashion blogs were few and far between; the word "influencer," didn't exist. Still, Craig wrote relentlessly, reviewing and dissecting It-bags. Most fashion houses didn't get the point — but Nancy Gonzalez and her late son, Santiago Barberi Gonzalez, did. The Colombian designers, known for their hand- stitched crocodile skin bags, were quick to embrace Craig's novel idea. A friendship followed suit — and last month, the Craig- Gonzalez love affair expanded with the debut of Craig's first collaboration with the Nancy Gonzalez brand. The capsule THE START OF A BEAUTIFUL FRIENDSHIP A s flowers bloom in Klyde Warren Park, new restaurants sprout in bustling uptown. The newest to enter the fray is The Henry. Located in the new high-rise development, The Union Dallas, Henry is helmed by chef Imsub Lee, and hails from Fox Restaurant Concepts, the group behind Flower Child. Offerings include breakfast, lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch, with short rib potstickers, Korean prime skirt steak, and grilled portobello tacos on offer. The Henry proves a dapper spot for cocktails after an arduous day of hedge-funding. Wake the Angels might be the perfect second-wind antidote.

Billy Fong THE DANDY DOWNTOWN S arah Castillo, the millennial entrepreneur behind Taco Heads — the Fort Worth food truck turned restaurant — has landed in Dallas. We're regulars at the Henderson Avenue locale. Here's why: The brisket in the tacos takes 12 hours to prepare; tortillas are made fresh by a local family-owned distributor; and the queso begs to have every savory bit scooped up. Taco Heads, 1921 Henderson Ave., Billy Fong REBEL TACOS collection includes a coated-linen Erica tote with stripes and palm-tree detail in that famous crocodile skin. With the small tote starting at $795, we call it the perfect carry-on for a flight to Harbour Island. Tina Craig for Nancy Gonzalez, exclusively at Christina Geyer of images featuring Kate Moss from his new book, Kate, opens that night; Dennis Freedman, founding creative director of W magazine and creative director of Barneys New York; and Self Service editor in chief Ezra Petronio, whose magazine's retrospective also opens at the Contemporary that evening. Rebel artist Juergen Teller will also attend, and photographer Yelena Yemchuk plans an interactive photography experience. If that kind of star power isn't enough to get the stylish set to sign a $15,000 check for a table, we don't know what is.
