As we age, our tastes change. While the eau de vinyl records and Pearl Light beer used to really get us charged up, these days we get excited about bathroom fixtures, great curtains and stainless steel appliances. Ah, to be a grownup. No longer tempted by rows of freshly minted music and not-so-freshly minted booze, we grownups long to finger faucets and get up close and personal with a really great Berber carpet. If you're in our boat too, prepare to have a proper, grown-up fit: The Dallas Home Show is here, and it has all the cooking demos, décor ideas and lawn designs you could want. The show runs Friday through Sunday at the Dallas Convention Center, 650 S. Griffin St. Hours are 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $8, kids under 12 are free. Visit texashomeandgarden.com.
