“You’re going to open your own studio, aren’t you?” Robert Luleff insisted to Jo Stokes the day after she quit her job as the yoga teacher trainer at Lifetime Fitness in Flower Mound in 2015.
How did he know? Stokes had told no one, save for family and her longtime friend, future Urban Vybe co-owner, Stacy Wise.
“I have the perfect location for you,” insisted Luleff, a good friend and fellow yogi who (unbeknownst to Stokes) was a broker with City Commercial Realty.
A year and a half later, Luleff looks like a prophet. [Read more…]
Two kinds of smoked turkey breast sandwiches (the Paradise and the Albuquerque) sat on a table at Paradise Bistro & Coffee Co.
Beside them, a hamburger, a Rueben, The Veggie, French Dip, and two types of french fries (potato and sweet potato).

On Saturday morning, Flower Mound Mayor Tom Hayden will make his first formal public appearance at Lakeside DFW since the community sprung up in the last few years.
Hayden will hold a “Morning with the Mayor” meeting with residents on Saturday, February 6, from 8 to 10 am in the Elan Lakeside Community Clubhouse, located at 2501 Lakeside Pkwy.
It’s an opportunity for members of the community to share with the mayor their thoughts about the town, and to ask questions or voice concerns.
“Everybody is ready for construction to begin,” laughed Allison Hayden from her desk in the sales trailer on the site of The Lakeside Tower, “and I aim to make them all happy.”
Since last spring, buyers have reserved 38 percent of the units. Over the past month, Hayden has helped several more buyers find their new home at the Tower, pushing the percentage sold to 44 percent.
The bank will fund construction once 50 percent of the units are reserved. That’s just a matter of two or three more units. [Read more…]

Moviehouse & Eatery opens Friday, July 10, ushering in a new era for Lakeside.
“Moviehouse will enhance the entire Lakeside community,” said Jimmy Archie, managing parter of Realty Capital, master developer of Lakeside, “as a place to live, gather with friends, eat, drink, and enjoy entertainment.”
“With the walls going up and the furniture and lights arriving,” said Amber Russell of her Amber Michelle Salon that will open at Lakeside DFW in August, “it is starting to feel surreal.”
“I am so excited to bring my business closer to my existing customers, who mostly live in Flower Mound, Highland Village, Lantana, and Coppell,” she added. (Some come from as far away as Houston and Austin.)
“Moving to Lakeside is like a dream come true,” insisted Russell, who has been been in the styling business for nine years. “It’s going to be awesome — sort of like a little city with lots of foot traffic.
Wednesday evening, June 3, two food trucks will be parked in front of the clubhouse (located at the southwest corner of Lakeside and Northwood) from 5-7 pm.
Everyone is invited to grab a bite. The food trucks include burgers and Cousins Maine Lobster.
Then tour the clubhouse. You’re going to love it as well as meeting more people at Lakeside. Here’s to many more such celebrations (e.g., when the restaurants and Moviehouse open).
