Friday Night Flights enhances an existing Southwest flavor experience at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas, where a nightly Guacamologist™ creates and serves freshly-blended guacamole and mini-margaritas at 6 p.m. nightly in the hotel lobby. The popular tradition began on the luxury Dallas hotel's opening night five years ago, and it has continued uninterrupted since then.
