November 3rd, 2008 · 3 Comments

There’s an oddly provocative castle plunked down on the edge of downtown Dallas — right next to one of our main arteries, Interstate Highway 35 — where all and sundry can see it. It’s called Medieval Times, and while the prices inside are straight out of the 21st century, the goings-on are positively, well, medieval. […]

The Out of the Loop Festival at Addison Theatre Center

March 16th, 2008 · No Comments

  Downtown Ft. Worth has many things to recommend it, but one of the most majestic is the beautiful Bass Performance Hall. Located in historic Sundance Square, just across the street from the famous Flying Saucer Pub, the Nancy Lee and Perry R.
