NBA All-Star Week Shootaround

One of the more intriguing concerts scheduled around the NBA All-Star Week is a Saturday-night Haitian-relief benefit at the Palladium featuring Erykah Badu and Jamie Foxx. A couple of Friends of Unfair Park have asked how they can buy tix. Problem is, the event's more or less sold out; I was told this morning there are but a handful of tickets left at $75. So, here's the deal: You really want to go, you let me know and I'll pass along your info to the appropriate officials within the Mavericks organization, who've said they'll see what they can do. ...

I happened across the Fair Park calendar and noticed a few All-Star events scheduled on the grounds, among them the Ruff Ryders All Star Celebrity Car+Bike Show on Saturday. (Mommy, what's an "adult video super star"?) Also scheduled at Fair Park: the invite-only Zo & Magic's 8-Ball Challenge -- those being Alonzo Mourning and Earvin "Magic" Johnson, naturally. ...

And here's the official catalog of All-Star Week apparel, which features the $30 shirt pictured here. Too subtle for my taste.
