Shop, Wine and Dine This Weekend

by Steven Doyle

We have a few shout outs for the weekend and think you might enjoy a few of these.  There are a few things going on that you might enjoy.

First let us mention that we saw Miguel Vicéns and John Paul Valverde owners of Campo Modern Country Bistro  last night and they wanted to let everyone know they do indeed have a liquor license. There were just a few days in the beginning that they did not have one, but now you can enjoy the cocktail program designed by Brad Hensarling of Fort Worth’s The Usual at the new Oak Cliff restaurant.  

Saturday you can start your Christmas shopping by purchasing wares from local artisans at the Dallas Flea, the occasional market located in the Southside of Lamar at 1409 S. Lamar. Here you will find amazing clothing, jewelry, food and vintage wear all under one room and made by some super cool locals.   Continue reading

Mondays often bring with it a bit of despair as we anticipate the coming of paperwork, traffic woes and the end to the weekend debauchery. But it doesn’t really need to be this way. At least for a troupe of at least 50 revelers that gather in Richardson each week at The House of Poets located next to Peace Pipe Hookah Lounge.

Circus Freaks is an extension of Creative Motion, a group of jugglers who were looking for a home when the owner of the Lebanese restaurant and the Richardson hookah lounge offered up his available warehouse space. This was the birth of Circus Freaks, or better known as Open StageContinue reading

Get Your Holiday Tickets Early

by Steven Doyle

The holiday season is officially here and no amount of complaining will hold back the rush of pageantry, music and lights, so we all best accept the fact we need to get our shopping complete so we can sit back and enjoy with a cold mug of heavily spiked eggnog.

One thing you may wish to scratch off your holiday list are your theater plans for the season. Last minute hopes of grabbing a great seat to the nutcracker goes unrewarded, leaving the family restless and wanting.

We present your holiday music list below.  If you have additions for us, please direct them our way.  Continue reading

Fishbone Concert Review

by Bryan Coonrod

For 25 years Fishbone has been wowing crowds around the world with their blend of punk, ska, reggae, jazz, funk and soul. Last night they rolled into Dallas for a showing of their documentary ” Everyday Sunshine” at the Texas Theatre and then a concert at Trees. Me being a long time fan could not wait for them to hot the stage, which did take some time as the sound check was longer than the opening bands entire set.   Continue reading

Vegan Girl Goes to the Veggie Fair

by Melissa Brenner         photos by Suzi Migdol

If you missed the Texas Veggie State Fair, you were one of the few. The last day of the Texas State Fair was set as the day for promoting fun, food and frolicking without animal products of any kind.

The threat of rain and mud did not stop the swarm of attendees. This, the second annual Texas Veggie State Fair, drew a much larger crowd than last year. The 1500 raffle wristbands were gone before the event was half over, leading organizers to believe between 2000-3000 attended the event.     Continue reading
