    I can’t be sure, but I am in a hotel at DFW overlooking the airport and there seems to be a large fire going on what it looks like inside the airport property...

    Probably the fire and rescue folks practicing.

    Or at least I hope so! :)

    How long are you in the area? You going to the MS campus right there on the frontage road?

    The black smoke caught my eye and I was looking for what caused it. No associated activity on the ground so probably training.

    When I ready to depart KLSE several months back I spotted some heavy black smoke down the row a ways. On the ground call to taxi he indicated they were doing Fire & Rescue training, partial taxiway closed, etc. That smoke is really, really black.

    Divert man...for your own good. I think Fargo is gone, buried under 300ft of snow with Wind 320@185G735 :)

    If you had pinged me last night... yes... but already made plans.

    How often are you down this way and when would be the next time?

    Friday night is open at this time.... Do you have transportation? And what hotel are you at? And any cuisine preference?

    Texas BBQ at the Coppell Hard8 is good, but the restaurant will be super crowded on Friday night and parking there is lousy. A better alternative is the location 12-15 miles to the west in Roanoke, TX.

    Also in Roanoke is Babe's Chicken Dinner House. And Twisted Root Burger.

    If you want TexMex, a favorite of the group near KDFW is Esparza's in Grapevine.

    Pinging others to see if they can attend. @JCranford @overdrive148 @SixPapaCharlie @Mitch817 @texasag93 @texashikergal02 @Ravioli @SCCutler

    We can hold the "where" decision for a little bit while the others check in.

    Well, then that narrows it down some

    There are a few good choices that serve up some really good fire grilled quadruped not far from your lodging

    Dangit Mike, you're making me really hungry! You guys have too much good food down there!

    I can vouch for the quality of the Twisted Root, but when you're in Texas, why waste a meal on a burger, even if it's a really good burger? You've got excellent BBQ and excellent Tex-Mex, and combining the two in the form of the Brisket Taco is the reason the Founding Fathers created this wonderful melting pot we live in. (I swear, it's true, I heard it on the internet from Abe Lincoln.)
