DIVE INTO OUR DIGITAL WORLD PAPERCITYMAG.COM BILLION DOLLAR CITY T exas Live!, the new mega-development rising up around the Texas Rangers' new $1.1 billion retractable roof ballpark, landed its centerpiece hotel. A new Loews Hotel, with some premium rooms overlooking the stadium's fi eld, brings fi ve new restaurants and bars — including one of the largest private bourbon collections in all of Texas. The hotel's new chef, Mouhssine "Moose" Benhamacht, began his career working for Jean Georges Vongerichten. Benhamacht wants anything but a slew of cookie-cutter hotel restaurants.

Few athletes anywhere are as beloved as Nowitzki is in Dallas. Now there are plans to a name a street after him, with another celebration expected when the German icon completes his American citizenship. But Nowitzki is mostly looking forward to "eating everything" and hanging out with his wife Jessica and their children — Malaika, 5; Max, 4; and Morris, 2.
