- Hosted four citywide clients during Thanksgiving. Clients experienced a Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars games and sampled some of our very best cuisines, from BBQ to amazing steaks to Italian and seafood. They also enjoyed some great attractions selected from the CityPASS options. And the highlight of the trip was witnessing history as the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Washington Redskins live at AT&T stadium and winning ten games in a row in franchise history!
