My wife would live at a Dallas In and Out Burger. It is her first stop any time we go to LA. I prefer Tommy's Burgers...but In and Out in my estimation is pretty average. I look forward to the Carls Jr Dallas invasion planned for this year. I still prefer a good old Whataburger.

These comedians are all pros. 8-12 years doing standup. There's no contest at this point for these headline level comedians, just styles. All are very funny. Buy tickets and have a great time.
Dallas is home to some of the best standup comedy in the business but without a local television or movie industry these comedy stars have to leave Dallas to make even a basic entertainment living. In Dallas that means private and corporate events are always welcome and pay more than area comedy clubs. Yes, Dallas is a sports town and we build the largest venues for big out-of-town stars but these comedians and their families reflect how Dallas supports it's own grassroots entertainment. Blues, comedy and artists depend on you. Book'em or lose'em. Buy tickets or watch another night of network programming. The talent is live and local. Discover it.

I got a copy of the original report. It would be valuable to critically read what it says. Projections should not take the place of on-going scientific samples and monitoring of actual conditions. Accurate, balanced, investigative reporting would have reported the fact that Barnett Shale operators lead the nation in monitoring and eliminating any adverse environmental impact of producing natural gas and oil from the Barnett Shale. Their contribution to lowering America's dependence on foreign energy resources and the production of a clean burning fuel should be recognized and supported.

"A rainy night in downtown Dallas started in the best way possible with Randy McAllister and his Band on a "House of Blues" stage in the urban hot spot they call "Uptown" in downtown Dallas. The "House of Blues" in Dallas is still a newcomer, a welcome addition to the Blues rich Dallas tradition. Long an internationally recognized Blues citadel, local Dallas' bluesmen past and present have earned the respect of the music world as culturally influenced innovators. Randy McAllister has been proclaimed "one of the best" by Big City Blues, selected with Eric Clapton as one of two artists nominated in three international categories for Australia's Blue Star Awards. Randy McAllister has won accolades for his high energy performances, cross genre compositions and last night proved why. Playing a mix of Blues, Roots and Americana with Latin influences, Randy McAllister with an inspired Matt Woodburn on guitar and Billy Acord on bass started with some of Randy's latest releases from his "Dope Slap Soup" album.
Harp solos by Randy and guitar solos by Matt were only surpassed by the counterpoint duets that danced in irresistibly haunting melodies, pure genius. If you've never heard this band, you've never experienced the sounds and lives of Texans. Randy explores the archetypical Texas in lightening flashes of inspiration better played in larger rooms without Plexiglass barriers. Chandeliers should rattle just as his music rattles the soul when Matt Woodburn lets loose with a melodic East Texas Woodsmans howl.
Randy and the band took the night into unrecorded territory with at least three amazing original compositions that aren't even on disc. Randy is known to have hundreds of unrecorded compositions with only a fraction recorded even with 8 solid CD's released. Some of his best work like "Perfect Day" is still only available live. If you didn't make it out last Tuesday, you still have time to experience this. Randy McAllister will be at the House of Blues every Tuesday in September. DO NOT MISS THIS. They are packing houses out across the US, everywhere they play. Make plans to see the remaining three concerts. I personally guarantee it will be a life memory." - Music Critic - World Entertainment Network
