flying saucer is in addison and has like a couple of hundred beers on tap all over the bar wall. it really depends on what you're looking for in a bar. sherlocks is pretty new to addison and also a pretty good bar.
deep ellum - these days it's not the safest place to go to, esp. early in the am. no one really bothers me, but not many go after the 6'4" 300lbs+ people right off the bat. downtown dallas? west end is usually always good and if you're visiting, probably more what you'd want to see than deep ellum.
there's an aquariam somewhere around downtown i've heard is pretty cool but if you want a zoo, take the truck driver haul to the ft. worth zoo. stockyards are out there too if you need to scream a good E-HA or anything.
studios of las colinas has a tour of their movie facilities that's actually worth the time to go see if it you're at all interested in it. it's not hollywood or anything, but hunt for red october, robocop, some steve martin preacher movie was filmed there and many national artists record in their studios as well.
back to addison - pretty much stay between the tollway and midway on belt-line and sooner or later you'll find something cool to do. if you're up for a "house of beef" fun, fogo de chou is a brazillian steak house that brings skewers of beef to your plate and as long as you can eat, they'll keep it coming. $60+ for dinner though w/o alcohol...but the food and service is about the best i've ever had anywhere.
there's a comedy club on the south side of belt-line a few blocks west of the tollway. you can go north on the tollway from there and see a lot more resturaunts, but not many more clubs.
it's sometimes fun to go to the top of reunion, but if you eat there, it ain't cheap.
if you've not seen AAC yes, or ameriquest field, it could be cool just to drive around and check out all the stadiums and then look at texas stadium and go "man, what a sh-hole". don't feel bad - it really does need to be replaced.
summer is finally kicking in - wet-n-wild is always good w/6 flags across the street. if you see the dancing old man, hit him. he's very annoying.
the addison area is very popular and you'll find some good bars and food there - it just depends on what you're hungry for. 2-3 seafood, 2-3 japanese/chinese, 2 house of beefs (go fogo if you go) and many things like a joes crab shack, micro-brewery, and several other good places. for just food, go north on the tollway from there and just stick on the access road. many more places to eat. if you get to the 2nd tollbooth, you've got a razoos, abuelos, some other steak house i can't remember now and an AMC theater that's always packed.
