I Still Don't Understand Why a Group Chooses to Perform in FW Rather than Dallas

But Muse did. And they put on quite a show, even if it is at the FW Convention Center (blech, but if you're going, don't get floor seats because it's really tough to see from down there.) And you can get your tickets before they go on sale to all the regular people. Since you like to be in the know, here's the password: Uprising

It's good Thursday(12/17) 10 a.m. - Friday (12/18) 10 p.m. Enjoy the show.

New Pub in Southern Oklahoma

Being one of those folks who dwells in the northern suburbs, I'm always excited to find somewhere to grab a beer on a good patio of a good restaurant (read: not another chain restaurant). So the Holy Grail has now arrived in Plano.

No really, it's called the Holy Grail Pub. They've got some serious beverages on tap for all you beer snobs. Even better for you late night partiers - it's in Plano, so that means you can stay out until 2 a.m. Woo hoo! Ok, I'm not likely to be out that late, but check out all the deets at

He's Not Dead? Who Knew?

Ok, so nobody has heard from Maxwell in a while and some of us might have thought he and Lenny Kravitz seemed eerily similar and never appeared together in the same place, but that's not relevant. Apparently Maxwell is back and he will be at the AAC on Monday, Oct. 12 (What is with all these darn Monday concerts?)

Presale is 8/27 10 a.m. through 8/28 10 p.m. Use the password: Night

Have fun.

Free Pizza at Papa John's

But apparently it's only free if you drive a Camaro. As the story goes, the founder sold his Camaro to have the money to start the pizza chain. Years later, after searching high and low for his original car, he finally bought it back. So to celebrate Camaros he's giving a free pizza to everyone who drives one.

Sounds kind of late for a Transformers promo, but whatever. Go eat your free pizza. At least there's one benefit to driving that car.

Thursday, August 20, 2009

Free Ice Cream

At the new Paciugo at the Shops of Legacy. Get it today 4:30-7:30 p.m. Yum.

Somebody Must Have Tricked Kelly Clarkson

Good news, Kelly Clarkson is coming to town (sort of). Well, she's coming to town if you consider Winstar Casino to be a DFW venue, but whatever. Didn't she perform at the AAC last time? Well, that's neither here nor there, but this chick is performing on Sunday Sept. 6. Doesn't she know it's Labor Day weekend? WTH?

Anyway, I checked out the site this morning and could have gotten 2 second row tix for just $50 each. If I wasn't going to be sunning myself in Galveston then, I'd think about trekking to southern Oklahoma. Check out the site and get your tix here.

Because Your Thighs Want a Cupcake

It's a cupcake store. . . A mobile cupcake store. Armed with close to 3,000 cupcakes, Dimples Cupcakes Facebooks and Tweets their location so you can get your cupcake fix. They were hanging out near West Village yesterday and ran out of cupcakes! Sign up to follow them so you can get yours ASAP. Word on the street is that they'll be putting a storefront at Willowbend mall pretty soon and will have a huge kick off party complete with FREE CUPCAKES!

Do you think they named it after the dimples you'll get from smiling while eating a cupcake or from the other dimples (known as cellulite)?

Bubbles! and Texas Wine That Doesn't Suck

This tasting is limited to 16 people and costs $18 per person. Buy your ticket and make your reservations at

And I have to say, I've had Fuqua wines and they're great! Not your usual Texas wine at all!

Orphans for Sale

OMG, you actually thought this was about orphaned children for sale? This is not that kind of blog so keep moving on.

Now, orphaned wine is a different issue entirely and should be bought. Sigels in Addison got stuck with some overstock wine that restaurants didn't pick up, so they've got it on sale 30-70 percent off. Better get there quick because these wines will go fast.

Ooh La La Rue La La

If you've never found the site, you're missing out. Today is the day to check it out. While they normally feature all sorts of fabulous designer clothes, accessories and other fun fashionable things, today is special. Today they have a W Hotels Boutique. That means that swanky W at Victory Park just dropped below $200!

Sure, it sounds steep, but it also includes parking, breakfast for two and two cocktails at the Living Room (and it is sooo much cooler than your living room). Plus, you'll be able to easily get into the Ghost Bar without waiting in that obnoxious line.

Henderson is about to have yet another reason to be your fave hang out locale. Hacienda is opening on Friday and will feature fabu Mexican food, beers, and tequila (yum).

New Place to Lunch

Split Peas Soup Cafe just opened in the old Urbano place (which has been reincarnated over by Jimmy's and is BYOB!). Apparently the soup is very good (if it wasn't, that'd just be sad), but they also have some yummy salads and sandwiches for those who don't just want a liquid lunch. Oh, but they do serve some very good martinis in case you really do want a liquid lunch.

Does Anyone Know What Bastille Day Really Is? (And Do You Care?)

One of my fave people-watching spots, Toulouse, is the perfect place to enjoy a Bastille Day summer picnic plate. $30 gets you a bottle of house wine, half of a warm baguette, radishes, prosciutto and melon charantais, a trio of salads and crudites, marinated olives, and spiced nuts. It’s enough for two. Their patio rocks too because it has misters and is covered so you won't melt to the ground.

Beat the Clock at Victory Park

I'm still hoping that Victory Park will magically make a turnaround and be filled with life, but not so sure that's going to happen today or even this week. But, here's a super cool deal at The Boardroom at VP:

2'fers at the Improv

Just got a heads up from Addison Improv that you can get 2 for 1 tickets for a number of their upcoming shows. One of those who's actually NOT part of the 2 for 1 deal is Sheryl Underwood and, if you haven't seen her, go check her out. She's insanely funny and very cool. Check out the full schedule at

Go get your laugh on already. It burns calories.

A Cheap(er) Lunch at Craft

Craft in the W Hotel at Victory Park is incredibly yummy and it just became slightly (very slightly) more affordable at lunch.

They're now serving a three-course lunch for you that costs just $28. The "Power Lunch," as they've dubbed it, is Mon–Fri, 11:00am–2pm. Word on the street is the Power Lunch menu will feature two first course options, three second course options, and two dessert options. Anyone want to do lunch?

I Scream, You Scream, We all Scream for Ice Cream (Floats)

Swing by Pokey O's by the SMU Bookstore on Mockingbird Lane to get $1 off all ice cream floats now through August 15. If you're not a float kind of girl or guy, definitely grab one of their Pokey O's ice cream sandwiches featuring fresh baked cookies and Blue Bell Ice Cream. Yum!

I Heart Tiff's Treats

It comes as no surprise that Tiff's Treats won Best Desserts in Dallas in the WFAA A-List Best-Of Awards!

As promised, they are extending a $5.00 off Coupon to their frieds for this week:$5.00 off any order over $15.00. Use Online Promotion Code: 5WFAA

We love you Tiff! Way to Go!

GolfNow . . . or Later

No, it's not a typo, it's and it's a nifty way to score a cheap tee time at cool courses around town and around the country. I used it to book a tee time for this weekend so I'll actually get out and see a course other than the one in my backyard. Seriously, $19 for greens fees and a cart on a Sunday afternoon, that's cheap. Sure, it'll be like 107 degrees, but it's a dry heat, really.

Restaurant Week is Here

Every foodie's favorite week/two weeks/month is coming up and the Restaurant Week list is out. Click here to check it out.

If you're not sure what Restaurant Week is, we'll let you in on the secret. Many of the best restaurants in town offer a 3 course meal for only $35. They usually have a few options for you to choose from and it's a great way to check out all the great restaurants you've been dying to go to.

But make your reservations ASAP. Somehow I managed to get into 560, but it's on a Monday night, so that's not so sexy. Got into Jasper's too. Wondering where else to hit. . . . Probably Hector's on Henderson because the food rocks and we love Hector!

Paul McCartney is Coming to Big D

Wouldn't be how I'd pick to spend $500 on concert tickets, but a friend asked for the presale password, which is still running for a few more days. So, if you really love Sir Paul, use 8003272177 and get your $175 or $250 seats before everyone else can buy them

P.S. - It's at Jerryworld in Arlington, which is super cool. I know b/c we went to see the Jo Bros. there, err, I mean, another event, whatever, I mean the Jo Bros.

Welcome to Deals, Steals and Things You Want to Know

I decided it was time to start blogging because my friends and family keep coming to me for recommendations and information about just about anything. It's not that I'm brilliant, but I get a lot of junk emails (no not the ones about the blue pills) and I skim them for the best information. When I find good stuff, I'll put it up here. If you find good stuff you want to share, just let me know.

And to my friends who keep asking me about stuff, I'll probably post your Q&A up here too because, like they said in school, there's no such thing as a stupid question and someone else probably has that same question.
