We missed a fascinating SBOE campaign forum in Fort Worth Monday night. It didn't start when Tea Party candidate Eric Mahroum kicked off the evening with some fringe buzzwords like CSCOPE and Common Core, and an invocation of the former President Ronald Reagan's "are you better off?" speech. Nor did ... More >>
While most of us are partial to the stories inside our beer bottles, sometimes what's on the label is pretty interesting, too. So we surveyed a few craft breweries in North Texas to learn a little more about the story behind their labels, starting with one of the most popular new beers on the market ... More >>

McDonald's purists (yes, they are a people), you may want to sit down. The fast food giant is set to open not one, but two of their first entirely vegetarian concepts in India next year.

Hah. We kid. C'mon, you didn't really buy that did you?
Man. I cannot believe it. Just got back in the house. Catching my breath. Had to wade into the crowd out there on the street. Major neighborhood squall.

If nothing else, Michael Cera is cooler than Danny Masterson, right?After announcing last week the addition of another 135 bands to its bill, you'd think the folks up at Denton's 35 Conferette might need a breather -- or, I dunno, maybe some time to focus on the actual logistics of the fest, sinc ...

Big things happening today in the world of 35 Conferette -- bigger news, even, than the fact that the-festival-formerly-known-as-North-by-35 now has an actual website to call its own (!).

Another Tuesday rolls around and it's another intriguing collection of musical options. A great night to drown those baseball sorrows.
What a packed Wednesday evening. And that's not even counting Your Texas Rangers playing in their first ever World Series game. Crazy, right?
