It's a long way from here to Minneapolis. About 14 hours, in fact. I know because I made the trip myself last weekend, having packed everything I own into a U-Haul and hopping on Interstate 35, which I followed virtually from one end of the country to the other. When I left, the Land of 10,000 Lakes ... More >>
Not too long ago, we at DC9 took a look at the value of supporting music with the local tag. It's tempting to apply the tag to anyone with any ties to North Texas, but how often is it accurate? Two notable releases will be widely, and perhaps wrongly, deemed local in the coming weeks. The self-tit ... More >>
William Ian Brown did not have a prescription for the single alprazolam (Xanax) pill he was allegedly carrying in his pocket when he was arrested on Sunday. A crime, to be sure, but a minor one. If prosecutors decided to pursue the case -- given that it was a single pill, they might not bother -- th ... More >>
James Ragland is back writing a metro column for the city's only daily newspaper, and that's a good thing. But Ragland, who took a sabbatical from columnizing to do actual journalism, may need to give himself some catch-up time before launching too many more opinion epistles. He wrote a piece yest ...

Under a circular blue awning in Lewisville lies a fairly unmarked store with generic white letters reading, "DFW Vintage Toys." The change of worlds stepping inside is jarring -- it's like walking back 30 years and into your childhood. The mastermind behind DFW Vintage Toys, Jayden Frost, is seriou ... More >>
On Monday, Irving police investigators were tipped off that a U-Haul truck containing a sizable batch of drugs was parked somewhere inside the city.

Her own shooting career derailed, Jeanie Almond has become Dallas' go-to teacher for shooting's fastest-growing market: women.
One evening during the summer of 1994, Karl Pratt was wrapping up a day at Lake Lewisville. It had been a satisfying outing but, as he backed his truck to the water's edge to pick up his boat, he realized his trailer had been stolen. Someone had cut the lock and taken off with it. It took him a week ... More >>

After almost four years on the job, an outgoing music editor takes one last stab at making sense of it all.
It's just beginning to dawn on me. I should be in heaven right now. I don't know why I'm not. The sheer dumbness of the Trinity River toll road is now at long last apparent for all to see. It's blown sky high and is comin' down! And none of the people who foisted it off on the city can get o ... More >>
Moving from Dallas to Seattle means I get to do a few things I've never before done, including piloting a U-Haul truck across the Rocky Mountains and visiting restaurants before they're ready for review. I've held out on eating at Cane Rosso, Jay Jerrier's immobile pizza kitchen in Deep Ellu ... More >>

Till, like, whenever do us part
OK. We're not about pissing on the FrontBurner flame. And I know after years of chasing down restaurant rumors that restaurateurs will deny they're closing right up until the time the landlord locks them out or they scurry off in the night with the Petrus and the Baccarat Crystal tucked into the U-H ...
