So, we'll see you Friday night at the opening of our dear Friend Hal Samples' new gallery, right? You know -- at 2814 Main Street in Deep Ellum? From 6 to 10 p.m.? Right. Awesome. 'Cause truth is, it's actually kind of a weekend-long shebang down at Samples' Space: Friday opening, Saturday drop-bys culminating in a rock show, then a Sunday-night potluck -- with all manner of musical accompaniment all weekend long. For those who can't make it, FineLineLive.com will stream the weekend's events, which is also doubling as a fundraiser for Dallas' homeless, to which Hal's devoted much of his time and talent in recent years. Here's Hal's video for the Sunday-night git-together. Happy eating. --Robert Wilonsky
