It's around 10 p.m. on a Friday and the street is buzzing with people, but this crew -- rolling eight deep with managers, collaborators and friends -- laugh a ... More >>
Lights All Night Fair Park Saturday, December 29 & Sunday, December 30 I remember when they were called raves -- not that I was ever old enough to attend one, but I remember when these types of electronic music fests were known as such. There was even a whole film subgenre in the '90s that document ... More >>
Sorry, Cubes, but that goofy German just leapfrogged you.
Garrett Top. Unless of course, Jason Garrett pulls a Cliff Lee and spurns the metroplex. Make no mistake, the Dallas Cowboys' interim head coach is suddenly a hot commodity as other NFL teams' permanent head coach. In the wake of a 5-3 second half he has some real leverage now. How's th ... More >>
10. Jerry Jones wants tangible improvements. Is that simply Jason getting the Cowboys to play harder? Or does he need to go 3-5 down the stretch? Either way, you can bet Bill Cowher's number is handy. 9. Garrett played behind Troy Aikman and was coached by Norv Turner and Sean Payton. Not a ... More >>
Ain't what it used to be. To me the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Giants rank ahead of the Washington Redskins as the Dallas Cowboys' most fierce rival these days. While the Cowboys have played the Eagles and Giants in playoffs games the last couple years, I don't recall the last t ... More >>

Somehow seven years ago I didn't forsee 5-star bars equipped with back-lit chandeliers and littered with HDTVs.Back in 2002 when I was at the Fort Worth Star-Telegram we first started getting wind that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was toying with the idea of building a new stadium.

West Village is cool, sure. But after seven years as a cocktail waitress, Henderson has seen a lot of "cool" in a lot of places. The Social House waitress and bartender has been through just about everything--at Frankie's in Uptown, West End Pub, House of Blues...all around Dallas, really. Work ... More >>
Again, with feeling. Ol’ antagonist George Allen used to try to rile us up by declaring the days before a Cowboys-Redskins game “Dallas Week.” Back then it barely raised an eyebrow, much less the blood pressure, as Dallas routinely had loftier goals than simply dispatching of a finger-lick ...
