Well, sure the brew at the newly open Ascension Coffee is good. Really, really good, in fact. And, the shop's Design District space is lovely.

The fine folks over at Indie-Verse had a severe lapse in judgment and offered myself, Mixmaster editor Jamie Laughlin and The Overserved columnist Deb Doing Dallas a weekly radio show, which will air on Friday evenings. It's called The Ladies Room, and we will serve as your guide to the weekend, off ... More >>
I've been watching you for quite some time. And if you don't mind me sayin', you look good.
