Zag Recess: We met Tim Love!

collin-polaTo work at a marketing agency, you need to be ready for anything. Quick changes, deadlines, last minute meetings; it’s a stressful world we live in, but it’s a world in which we thrive.

However, sometimes we just need to kick off our shoes, get out of the office and have fun as a team. These outings have become known around the office as “Zag Recess.”

Today for recess, we went to the grand opening of The Love Shack in the new So7 development.

First off, may I suggest to anybody reading this blog that you should go ASAP. The food was delicious and original (which is kind of hard to do with a burger).

The most exciting part though had to be when we met celebrity chef Tim Love. For those who don’t know, Chef Love is the owner and executive chef of The Lonesome Dove Western Bistro in Fort Worth. He has also competed on Iron Chef America (which he won) and Top Chef Masters, so to steal from, Ron Burgundy he’s kind of a big deal.

Chef Love was nice enough to chat and take a picture with us. I’m pretty sure Alex, the office chef, was about to pass out from excitement like one of those girls who saw The Backstreet Boys for the first time (just kidding Alex).

All in all, great outing, but we’re already looking forward to next week – G.I. Joe Friday here we come!

Also, the blog Fort Worth Renaissance was kind enough to feature Alex’s post about The Love Shack (like I said, Backstreet Boys fan. Last time Alex, I promise) on their Friday web links. Thanks guys.

Gimme some lovin’

AlexWith the entire office scrambling to get work done this week, I decided a trip to The Love Shack was in order.

For the hungry Fort Worthian, the second Love Shack is set to open in the new So7 development across from Montgomery Plaza. The original, which opened two years ago, still stands in the Stockyards.

The last couple days this week have consisted of soft opening lunch services – to work the kinks out. The official grand opening for the So7 Love Shack is this Friday, July 31.

I recently visited to see how things were working out. Expecting utter chaos – that’s what soft openings are for after all – I was instead greeted with controlled chaos. Everybody was scrambling to get something done, but things were moving smoothly, and of course, the food was spectacular.

The Double Dirty Love Burger, Fries and a Abita root beer - bliss

The Love Shack is the project of celebrity chef, and native Texan, Tim Love. He is also known for his upscale Lonesome Dove Western Bistro and White Elephant Saloon in the Stockyards. Love was also a contestant on Bravo’s Top Chef Masters and a winner on Iron Chef America.

This chef-driven burger is easily my favorite bite in Fort Worth.

If you don’t trust me, recent accolades for The Love Shack include spots in Texas Monthly’s “50 Best Burgers in Texas” and renown publisher Conde Nast’s “Top 105 New Restaurants in the World.” A Star-Telegram review said the signature Dirty Love Burger was “quite possibly the most perfect burger on the planet.”

Is your stomach growling yet? Stop reading this and go get yourself some Lovin’!
