Patrick's forthcoming with pictures and words from the downtown blow-em-ups this morning, as Big Bob Jeffress and Mayor Tom held hands and made First Baptist go boom, but first, this just in from the Texas Theatre: Love-him-or-hate-him Neil Hamburger's been booked into the joint for what it's calling its 1931 New Year's Eve Grand Opening Party, so-called due to the redo and re-opening announced back in early September. On the other side's a new schedule of films -- ah, Repertory Tuesday, my new favorite day of the week -- including a handful of Dallas premieres and, natch, JFK week events. Also on the flip, a side of Hamburger, for those who like to make early plans and hate Papa Roach.
