    Deion Sanders Jr. is Under Investigation for Tweeting Backstage Picture with Lil Wayne

    Unfair Park has no particular beef with Deion Sanders Jr. He, unlike his father, has never established a charter school and used it to get his own reality show, or tried to trick us into being a part of that reality show. He's just your average SMU student who enjoys Versace bed sheets. However, th ... More >>

    Cedars Social is Serving All-You-Can-Eat Prime Rib Tonight. Will There Be Slot Machines?

    Well, this strikes me as odd. Today I got a news release from the folks at Cedars Social. The subject? The restaurant is offering all-you-can-eat Prime Rib on Monday. Huh. All-you-can-eat meat. My first reaction was that this deal sounded more in place at a Golden Corral than at a moderately up-sc ... More >>

    UT-Dallas: Way Less Fun and Way More Expensive than UT-Austin

    It wasn't without some pride that I saw last week that my alma mater, the University of Texas at Dallas, had earned what may be its first superlative. (Okay, maybe its second, but the most-hideous-architecture label was unofficial). The Texas Tribune has helpfully compiled a list of average tuition ... More >>

    Mumtaz's Indian Lunch Buffet Was Built for Meatless Monday

    Weary of soy protein and veggie burgers from Meatless Mondays gone by, I had set my sights this go around on exotic flavors and spices.

    Veggie Girl: Olivella's

Is it so difficult, really, to buy fresh, healthy ingredients, and then to keep the food simple enough to let their flavors come through? Apparently so, or more places would do it. Olivella ...
