Man, it’s been a minute, but another “Appy Hour” is nigh upon us, good folks. This Friday, November 4th, we’re reaching out to the flavors of the Far East to get all kinds of Appy.

As we’ve said before, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be rocking a BestBuzz App on your iPhone or Android, these days. It’s free and to suggest that the benefits of possessing this app pay extreme and immediate dividends is a most serious understatement.

We could go on and on about the various deals one has available to them once they download the app, but first, let’s discuss this week’s Appy Hour specifically. The Sushi Zushi in Dallas has already come to be known as one of the best spots for sushi in a city that’s grown increasingly mad for the oceanic treat in recent years. Come on by Friday between 3pm and 8pm, buzz-in with your app and proceed to enjoy the following specials that you simply can not attain without being properly buzzed…

·         $1 specialty Dolce Vodka cocktails (this will go away at 6pm, though)

·         Bar Swag Giveaways

·         Free Apps and Rolls

·         Gift Card Giveaways

·         $5 drink specials (assorted beverages)

So, sound good? I know. I know it does. We’ll see you there then! Also, give the bad boy below a scan with your app so we know you’re coming.

OK, this is a post with two messages for you (especially if you’re reading this and are the owner of a business). We here at Best of Texas and BestBuzz pride ourselves of creating innovative ways for not only business owners to market their enterprise, but for consumers of all types to enjoy the wares that we are helping them get such great deals on.

I know it’s easy for us to get on this blog and tell you we’re offering such great channels for both businesses and shoppers, so we want to give you some real-live, out-on-the-street proof about how this is such a wonderful tool. Oh, and for any of you parents out there, looking to get the perfect hair cut for your kiddo, you’ll want to catch this too!

One of the many businesses taking advantage of the marketing power that BestBuzz (our mobile marketing app that connects businesses and consumers) offers is The Kid Salon in Allen, TX. Again, we don’t want you to take our word for it. Just let Jim Berrios, of The Kid Salon tell you through this letter we recently recieved from him, thanking BestBuzz for the positive effect his business has seen from the program…

“Even though we have only been with the Best Buzz family for a short while. We are seeing and hearing a tremendous amount of excitment from our customers. They think it’s fun, cool, and easy. They really love that they can share their discounts with their Facebook friends so effortlessly. Personally, as a small business owner, I love the control this amazing tool gives me to better market my business. Best Buzz gives me very easy-to-use, yet very detailed reporting and editing options. I can check our marketing buzz or change our discount as much as I want, even while I wait in the car pickup line for my kids after school. No more coupons for my customers to worry about, and no more frequent runs to the printer for me, which saves me time and money!”

See? If this sounds good to you and you want to learn more about how we can help your business reach more people in a way that you haven’t imagined, then please let us know.

Also, while you’re at it, giveThe Kid Salon BestBuzz page a look to see what kind of deals you can take advantage of today!


The Shops at Willow Bend in Plano has been a great deal sweeter in recent months. The mall’s most delectable tenant, Sugar Queen Cupcakes has been slinging icing-topped guilt-givers and has been picking up all sorts of praise along the way.
Perhaps most notably, Sugar Queen’s Berry Pecan Cupcake was named as The Official Cupcake for the State of Texas. Beating out many other bakers, our state government was able to get something right. Of course, that’s but one of many addictive flavors feature at the shop, located not too far from the shopping center’s food court area. Cream Cheese Lime, Mint Chocolate Truffle, Italian Cream and yes, even good ol’ chocolate and vanilla are featured daily. If you think you can, you are able to leave with only one treat, but good luck with that. one glimpse into the bright room of sweets and it’s more likely you’ll walk out with a box or two.
It stands to reason that the Official Cupcake of Texas would be an ideal match for giving readers of Best of Texas a sweet deal or two. Head on over to Sugar Queen’s Best Buzz page and see how you can take advantage of a special that’s available to BestBuzz users only. Hint: It involves buying some cupcakes and getting even more for free (wink wink, nudge nudge).

Of course, to take advantage of this offer, or any of the other great deals that BestBuzz App users are regularly offered, you need to download the App onto your iPhone or onto you nifty Adnroid.

Twenty. Five. Cent. Margaritas. Gloria’s - Uptown Dallas. April 14. 4:00 – 8:00pm.

Let’s all just go ahead and be honest with each other: The above pronouncement is likely all we would typically need to know before making our plans for some after-work frivolity, no?

Well, just hang with us for a few more words please, now that you know your Thursday night is now planned sufficiently. Gloria’s Restaurants, the place we have all come to love for their south of the border delights (hello, black bean dip!), will be celebrating their 25th Anniversary on Thursday the 14th and have included us in the proceedings.

While the low-priced, celebratory margarita’s will be available at each of Gloria’s 13 area locations for that day, it will be at their popular Uptown location where faithful BestBuzzers can scan the code below (DO IT!!) to RSVP and be automatically entered into a number of drawings that will award BestBuzzers all sorts of cool prizes like tickets to Texas Ranger baseball games and other sweet items.

Sounds great, right? Yes, we agree. See you at Gloria’s Uptown (3223 Lemmon Ave Dallas, TX 75204) on Thursday from 4:00 – 8:00pm, then!

We told you that we would be all over town, giving you all tons of chances to take advantage of great food, drink and fun specials with the BestBuzz App!

We’re back at it, and this time, we’ll be throwing the next “Appy Hour” at Christie’s Sports Bar in Uptown on Friday, April 1st from 5:00pm – 8:00pm. How does 50% off of appetizers sound? How about $2 Bud Light Drafts, $2 Wells, $3 shot specials and $4 Deep Eddy Sweet Tea Vodka? Sounds pretty swell, right? That’s what we thought!

So, if you haven’t already downloaded the BestBuzz App yet, what more proof do you need that it will pay dividends sooner, than later? Just hit up the App-store on your iPhone or Android, search “bestbuzz” and install. You’re set!

OK, now that all of that is cleared up, we’ll see you and your Buzz on Friday, at Christie’s Sports Bar in Uptown (2811 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75204), for all kinds of “Appy” times!

For those of us with small kids, or even not-so-small kids, the Saturday birthday party can be a bit of a beating and can absolutely throw a wrench into any well-meaning plans of getting something productive around the house done (even if we were likely never going to get to that pesky project, anyways.) Screaming kids, ringing video games, creepy, large singing mice and general sensory overload can really bring a frown to a parent’s face, if we’re all being honest here (we are, aren’t we?).

For many of us possessors of the BestBuzz App, we have found a different, and less stressful way of helping our children celebrate birthdays, whether it be their own, or the celebration for one of their tiny friends: Bounce U.

The well-trained staff of each Bounce U knows how to operate the well-oiled party machine they possess, ultimately taking the headache of having to handle everything away from the parent. Imagine, just hanging out while your kids bounce and play in the indoor, bounce-eriffic playrooms before heading to another party room for pizza, goodies and presents – all in the span of a quick hour or two.

Be sure to use the BestBuzz App to it’s fullest and you can see what I mean for yourself. Go to http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bestbuzz/id405561566?mt=8 to read more about the App and download it FOR FREE, for yourself.
