If you're feeling charitable, you might describe Ricky Bobby Sports Saloon and Restaurant, with its checkered flags and black-and-yellow stock car out front, as a loving, if unauthorized, homage to the 2006 Will Farrell/John C. Reilly film Talladega Nights. The breastaurant's parent company, strip c ... More >>
The members of the One Nation Motorcycle Club were in a hurry last week, and for good reason. They were headed to the Ricky Bobby Sports Saloon (no, not that Ricky Bobby), one of Fort Worth's newest breastaurants. So maybe their speedometers did occasionally inch above the officially posted 60 miles ... More >>
Since the first Rick's Cabaret opened three decades ago, the company has grown into a publicly traded strip club empire with more than two dozen locations nationwide. It prides itself on classiness, boasting on its corporate website that it was while dancing at Rick's Cabaret that Anna Nicole Smith ... More >>
The Ricky Bobby Sports Saloon and Restaurant has opened on NE Loop 820 in Fort Worth. This NASCAR-themed restaurant is no Applebee's for darn sure, but it'll do. And since we all watch Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby each and every opportunity we get, we know the wonderful potential a re ... More >>
Last year, local hip-hop purveyors talked at length about the importance of having a big presence around town during the weekend of the Cowboys Stadium-hosted 2010 NBA All-Star Game. And, lest there was any doubt, these same artists are at it again this year.But, this time around, they appear to ... More >>
Last month, we pointed you in the direction of Cali Swag District's big hit "Teach Me How To Dougie," a song that references the D-Town Boogie movement and, specifically, Lil Wil's "My Dougie." Seemed a rather innocuous song to us. If anything, we figured, it seemed a nice little shout-out to both W ... More >>
I'm not gonna act as if "Daddy Stroke," the follow-up single to the Party Boyz and DJ Mr. Rogers' breakout hit, "Flex," is anything special. It isn't. And neither is its dance, which, far as I can tell, is just grinding and humping. But the video, directed, like pretty much all Boogie songs, by Mr. ... More >>
Jesus saves. And shoots.Why did the Los Angeles Lakers lose Game 2 of the NBA Finals Sunday night? Because they turned their back on Jesus. Boston Celtics' guard Ray Allen - who played "Jesus Shuttlesworth" in Spike Lee's He Got Game - went off on L.A. He hit a Finals-record eight 3-pointe ... More >>
"Animal House" at the Lounge on Elm Street Saturday is not a screening of the classic college comedy, but you are certainly welcome to drink like it is. Just because it's freezing out and everyone in Dallas seems to have a sinus infection doesn't mean you can't enjoy yourself at a show. Misery lo ... More >>
[Editor's Note: Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be presenting my favorite local songs of the year, counting down from No. 25 to No. 1, one track a day.

Yet one more thing to add to the list of things that Dorrough has now done that his fellow rappers in the DFW scene haven't: Right there in the Sunday edition of the paper, Dorrough's debut album, Dorrough Music, received the review treatment from the New York Times. And while it's not the best r ... More >>
If your name is B-Hamp, you went down to South Padre Island and performed 'Do The Ricky Bobby' at various Girls Gone Wild parties. Kinda puts a whole new spin on the "Stop! Pose for the frame!" lyric, huh?
"Well let me just quote the late-great Colonel Sanders, who said 'I'm too drunk to taste this chicken.'" (Ricky Bobby, as played by Will Ferrell, in Talladega Nights. Quoted because...what the hell, it's race weekend.)
Looks like the fruits of MTV's labor from a few weeks back, when the network followed D-Town production wunderkinds Play-N-Skillz around town for a party at plush and a dance instruction deal at Big T Bazaar are gonna be unraveling over on MTV.com all week--if the above promo, which features non-Da ...

Answer: That AwkQuarius gig at Rubber Gloves that we told you about in last week's Good Friday. Of course, we didn't tell you about the Dallas-based hipster-hop outfit known as galleryCat that opened for Pikahsso and Tahiti--mostly because we didn't know them at the time either...
I bid farewell to 2008 by, like Ricky Bobby, thanking little baby Jesus for giving us specialty holiday brews. What better way to soothe the white-knuckle stress of shopping, the friction of family gatherings and the frustration of assembling crappy toys than with a high-ABV beer? Jonathan Shike ... More >>
Here at DC9 this week, we took Pete's cover story to heart, especially this dig DJ Drop takes at folks in night clubs who try out the D-Town Boogie dances: "You can tell the people that are doing it right off YouTube. They're doing it right off the instructions."To those of us who'd never seen the R ... More >>
