Drinks: To catch a game, look no further than the Texas Stadium Sky Box in Terminals A, B, and C, even if they haven't yet been renamed for the new stadium. The spiffy new Terminal D houses the Blue Mesa Taco and Tequila Bar -- which has a little more of the Tex-Mex you’d expect outta Dallas. Finally, the Tigin Irish Pub offers exactly the kind of Irish food you'd expect from Dallas.
(VERY) Last minute gifts: The Dallas Cowboys Team Shop in Terminals A, D, and E will probably let you get the team logo tattooed on your child's face if you pay them enough. If Children's Services already has their eye on you, roll instead with some Cowboys bottled water, or tailgate covers, or pajama jeans. If you’d like to look for some clothing that does NOT have a giant lone star on it… GIT OUTTA TEXAS!!!! Or head to Brooks Brothers in Terminals C, D, and E.
Still bored?: Though not as hip-hopperiffic-sounding as “The Club at ATL,” The Club at DFW’s got the same showers, drinks, and crazy snack nut bowls as its Atlanta counterpart -- and for the same $35. Terminal D also hosts a sculpture garden, which is a nice place to relax (that’s not quite as sissy-sounding as SFO’s “meditation room"). Just outside is the airport's Founders Plaza, where you can listen to air traffic control while looking through telescopes, learn the history of DFW, or just keep thinking to yourself “Man, it gets COLD in Texas??” If all that excitement leaves you tuckered, take a nap at the Minute Suites in Terminal D. Or shower. Or do whatever else you’d otherwise do in a hotel room the size of your closet. Alternatively, check out these free places to sleep if you're grounded and cash-poor.
