Just back from Dallas and a reading/talk in one of the coolest bookstores I’ve ever been in. If you get the chance, go visit The Wild Detectives. They have books, naturally, a highly curated and groovy selection, and they have booze. Local beer (I really liked the Peticolas “Golden Opportunity”), Spanish wines, craft cocktails, delicious coffee. They even have tapas.
Not only is the name a tribute to Chilean writer Roberto Bolaño, but the back yard (yes, a bookstore with a backyard filled with picnic tables) is an inspired riff on a section of Bolaño’s 2666.
