Someone at the DMN has a great sense of humor

Pinkdome points out some “fun with layout” that occurred at the Dallas Morning News:


What are you doing Thursday evenings?

Looking to start your weekend early? Looking for something laid back and easy? Looking for something free?

Jimmy B. (one of the El Paso Baldwin Brothers) plays guitar and sings every Thursday evening at the Lakewood Bar & Grill, from 9 until 11 o’clock. All original material with a few exceptions.

The joint is just west of, and about 20 yards away from, the Lakewood Theater. Between the theater and Starbucks

Deep Ellum Shoutout at Iconbuffet


Don’t know if it has anything to do with Dallas or not, but has a beautiful collection of stock icons in 3 color themes called… Deep Ellum…

Aha! Further investigation shows that Firewheel Design is based in Ft. Worth. Check them out!

Get Your Shopping Shoes and Riot Gear On!

Next Saturday and Sunday is the last ever, EVER Chef’s Catalog warehouse sale in Dallas. They’ve been sold, I think, and are moving to Colorado. The sale is on Saturday, April 30th from 9-5 and Sunday, May 1st from 11-4. Chef’s is located at 4121 Pinnacle Point Drive in Dallas. Exit Cockrell Hill Road off I-30 and go south to Pinnacle Point Drive and make a left (east – there will be plenty of Chef’s signs to point the way).

It’s going to be wild, I bet. But, with the warehouse closing, I’m sure there will be deals galore. They also have quite a few gadgets that are non-kitchen related, but it’s mostly kitchen stuff.

All sales are final, but they do take cash, checks and major credit cards.

See you there.

We Apologize For the DeLay, Public Service Will Resume Shortly

Some folks have decided to put up a billboard in Tom DeLay’s neck of the woods that expresses some, um, feelings about him and the ethics issues that surround him.

Go on over and vote for your favorite billboard.

An Alternative to the Lipscomb/Fantroy Freak Show

While Fantroy and Lipscomb continue to chew one another’s legs off, there is an intriguing alternative for the District 8 City Council seat: Adrian Drake. He’s a Dallas success story who is not only a Habitat volunteer, but also a Habitat homeowner. Just what that District needs… someone who understands the realities of the citizens living there. Way to make good Adrian Drake!!

What Do You Think?

Here we go! Strong Mayor? No! Yes! I think I’ll stick with no, for now. How about ya’ll?


Didn’t get tickets for the race but still want to be part of the NASCAR race weekend? There some sort of NASCAR festival going on outside of my office in Sundance Square.

We all know that I only care about the festival foods, especially the nitrates on a stick. On 4th, between Main and Houston there are a bunch of food stands – Steak on a Steak, Sausage on a Stick, Corn Dogs and Funnel Cakes are all representin’. (Sorry, there was no roasted corn, turkey legs or chicken on a stick that I saw.)

Here’s the musical portion of the program:
Friday, April 15
Quiet Riot at 9:00 p.m (Spiral Perms. Ah, the memories.)

Saturday, April 16:
Keith Anderson at 3:00 p.m.
Craig Morgan at 4:30 p.m.
Brian McComas at 6:00 p.m.
Billy Dean at 7:30 p.m. (I’m nearly positive he is the son of Jimmy Dean the King of Sausage.)
Mark Chesnutt at 9:00 p.m.

Drinkies On The Patio

I’m stealing a line from Dallas Blogger and Award Winning (for
his fabulous work on the Wilmer-Hutchins series) Journalist Josh Benton.

All right-thinking people will be at the 8.0 in Fort Worth for Kelly Willis on
Wednesday night. Kelly goes on at 7. Bonnie Bishop follows at 9.
It’ll be gorgeous outside – git yourself a spot on the patio, a cold beer
and an earful of Kelly.

Main Street Arts Festival in Ft. Worth

If the weather permits, head on over to Main Street in Ft. Worth. Admission is free, food is with the stupid, over-priced coupon system, but there’s plenty of restaurants around there if you prefer to go that route. I’m sure you’ll run across something that’ll turn your head.
