A few things we expected at this year's wine & dine:
- A gluttonous array of custards from Wild About Harry's
- Enough wine to get the Green Giant drunk
- Booths with pyramid-like stacks of samples
- Lots of spices
- Garlic-infused things
- Man donning fake mustache to go back into dessert line as if "1st time"
And it delivered. Among the participating eateries were Kenichi, The Place at Perry's, AMPM, Melting Pot, and Wild About Harry's. Wednesday, April 14, the Dallas Observer hosted its 4th Annual Wine & Dine at the Fashion Industry Gallery downtown. There was live music, wine, beer, spirits, and yes (oh GOD, yes) samplings from 30 area restaurants.
Texas Motor Speedway (as we tried to avoid "starting off with a bang" cliches) launched its season with a celebration in Sundance Square yesterday in Fort Worth. With the party came the announcement: April 15th-18th is officially Race Weekend in Fort Worth.

Big weekend at the Granada Theater this weekend that began with Darktown Strutters and Big Pink with A Place to Bury Strangers on Friday, April 9th and ended with Ani DiFranco, who chose to remain photo-less. Read the review on DC9 At Night. Photos by Kevin Todora.
As Unfair Park reported earlier this week, Jason Roberts of Bike Friendly Oak Cliff is thinking small and proud of it. This weekend's Art Crawl and Better Block Project bustled with bicyclists, pedicabs, politicians, musicians and lots of big art. Danny Hurley was there to capture some of the...
The Dallas International Film Festival opened at the Angelika at Mockingbird Station Thursday night, April 8, with a handful of filmmakers and stars including Bill Paxton, and festival chair Mayor Tom Leppert. You can keep up with the festival, which runs until April 18, at Unfair Park.
Touting the success of Oddblood, Yeasayer pulsed the Granada Theater last night (with openers Javelin) in front of orbs of vivid lights. We wrote about the duplicitous reaction to Yeasayer (owning some of ourselves) of late (here!), and a review of the show is to follow on DC9 at Night--but...
