Say Again?

Bust out the absinthe and hide your guns, everybody: Vincent Van Gogh is in the house. From now until January 7, the Dallas Museum of Art (or, as I like to call it, Not The Kimbell) is hosting Van Gogh's Sheaves of Wheat,, the largest collection of Van Gogh works shown in the Southwest in decades. You won’t get "Starry Night," but you will get a whole lot of paintings of wheat fields—which would be boring if anyone other than Vinny had painted them. Tickets are $16 for adults, $14 for seniors, $12 for students with ID and $8 for children 6 and under; children under 6 and members get in free. And before you get all excited, they're not trading tickets for earlobes this year—I asked. The DMA is located at 1717 N. Harwood St. Call 214-922-1200 or visit
Tuesdays-Sundays. Starts: Nov. 4. Continues through Jan. 7

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.
