Screw Playstation 3

Velveteen Rabbit is pissed: PlayStation 3 is here, Barbie's Dream House is now three stories tall, and Tickle Me Elmo learned Spanish. How's a bunny supposed to compete? The only "features" he brings to the table are that he's made of knockoff velvet and could give you scarlet fever. You should calm his nerves by showing him some love this Friday at 7:30 p.m., when Dallas Children's Theater presents The Velveteen Rabbit. The show plays in the Baker Theater at Rosewood Center for Family Arts, 5938 Skillman St. If you can't make it this Friday, don't worry: the show runs at 7:30 p.m. Fridays, 1:30 p.m. Saturdays, and 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Sundays through December 17. Tickets are $18 for adults, $16 for kids and $14 for students and your Grandma. Call 214-740-0051 or visit
Fridays, 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 1:30 p.m.; Sundays, 1:30 & 4:30 p.m. Starts: Nov. 24. Continues through Dec. 17

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.
