Nosh Around the Clock

By Deb Silverthorn

Rewriting the great Kool and the Gang lyrics a bit, when it’s late at night and the eating’s right, throughout the Metroplex there are many choices for late-night noshing—full meals, snack stops, liquid courage considerations, and desserts to delight the palate at all hours.  Long past bedtime, there are sips and bites of the simple and eclectic, the sweet and the spicy, the full-serve and drive-thru. 

Whether you’ve just finished a midnight movie or are just starting to study in the wee hours, eateries throughout our community can provide the answers to your hunger pangs.
