If you as Instagram obsessed as me, then you need to follow @WhateverYouAre and you will be slack-jawed on a daily basis by his stunning photographs of Dallas cityscape. It was Joseph Haubert’s work in graphic design steered him into photography and he has been featured on the social networks of the Dallas Morning News, Uber DFW, Visit Fort Worth, Visit Irving, Downtown Fort Worth and others. The Dallas Mayor’s Office used his work for the Best International Skyline competition last year and his work is currently being feautred inside the Mosaic Apartments elevators in downtown Dallas. Earlier this year, Haubert won first place in the MOBILE category for the Dallas Morning News Photographer of the Year competition.

Since it opened in 2013, The Rustic has been one of Dallas’ most popular hotspots for Uptown hipsters. Part concert venue (metal doors roll up on two sides of the stage), part bar and part farm-to-table restaurant, diners can sit inside or al fresco in the “backyard,” among the picnic tables and Adirondack-style chairs while enjoying the scene. We love the recently launched “Jam & Toast” brunch service every Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Diners will enjoy dishes like Baby Fried Toast, Smoked Cheddar Grits and Country Baked Eggs served family-style while being serenaded by bluegrass and blues musicians. The menu also includes alcoholic beverage options like the Mariposa Mimosa made with rosé or prosecco, fresh-squeezed orange or grapefruit juice, Brazos Valley marmalade and mixed berry preserves and a house-made Bloody Mary made with house-pickled okra, Texas beef straws and Peppadew peppers. Brunch prices are $16.95 per person. At 3656 Howell Street, and Therusticrestaurant.com
