Chainsaw Blues

Have you seen the previews for Employee of the Month—that romantic comedy about discount superstore employees? I can't guarantee that it will suck, but I'm going to anyway. Does Hollywood really have room for Dane Cook and Ryan Reynolds? I say they should have a fight to the death, and you should watch Bruce Campbell instead. Because, if you need some discount superstore employee-focused entertainment, there's only one cure: Army of Darkness. And Tuesday night, it's playing as a part of the B-Reel series at the Belmont Hotel, 901 Fort Worth Ave. You'll get a chainsaw-wielding discount superstore hero with an amazing chin, plus boomsticks and a spell book made of human skin. Oh, and it's free. Yeah, free. Show starts at 8 p.m. Bring some bucks for beer and wine. Call 214-393-2300 or visit

Alice Laussade writes about food, kids, music, and anything else she finds to be completely ridiculous. She created and hosts the Dallas event, Meat Fight, which is a barbecue competition and fundraiser that benefits the National MS Society. Last year, the event raised $100,000 for people living with MS, and 750 people could be seen shoving sausage links into their faces. And one time, she won a James Beard Award for Humor in Writing. That was pretty cool.
