Night About Town

Although the song in Wonderful Town titled "100 Easy Ways (to Lose a Man)" does talk about a bunch of different ways you could lose a guy, I was surprised it never mentioned these surefire ways you can lose your man: do his grandpa, ask him to do a chore, have the name Jennifer Aniston, unhook the leash, keep poking him with your index finger in the same spot on the arm for so long that he leaves you, withhold the bajingo, tell him you love him, introduce him to your friends who are clearly hotter than you, tell him there's no Santa Claus, tell him it's you or the porn, tell him it's you or the football game, tell him it's you or the laser tag, give him the keys, find out he's gay, ask him to marry you, fart on his head. Hear a bunch of other ways to lose a man when you see Wonderful Town at Fair Park Music Hall, 909 First Ave., 8 p.m. Wednesday. The show's gonna give you lots of sailors and lots of Irish police officers. What more could you possibly need to know? Tickets are $14 to $66. Call 214-631-ARTS or visit
Tuesdays-Sundays, 8 p.m.; Saturdays, Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: May 8. Continues through May 20

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.
