Queso, football and a concert in Deep Ellum are all trademarks of a great day in Texas (well, anywhere, actually!).

We traded best Tex-Mex recommendations (fun fact: Dallas has more restaurants per capita than any other market in the country) and then dived into a discussion on how AT&T's advertising arm, Xandr, is approaching marketers and agencies with an incrementally robust offering in the wake of the completion of the AT&T-Time Warner acquisition. The conversation was -- as they say in the Lone Star State -- more exciting than a handoff to Elliot on a third and nine.
