If you told me I’d see a devil dog in my lifetime I wouldn’t have believed you – until last night.

Plenty of North Texas Anime fans came to the Sheraton Hotel on Saturday, costumed and all, to celebrate the nirvana that is AnimeFest. Short for "Anime Festival" it's a once a year celebration of all things Japanese animation thrown right here in Downtown Dallas.
So the summer season is a total wash. Our favorite TV shows won't return from hiatus until fall. Things are getting pretty crazy in politics and in world news. Weather is out of control. Concert tickets are getting pricier and summer movies are becoming more lame. August isn't exactly what I would call a slam dunk month for events that happen in DFW. But when events do happen, why not take advantage when the opportunity arrives?
What is burlesque? Urban Dictionary defines it as "A variety show that uses: comedians, strippers, or musicians that often sing and dance while removing their clothes in a seductive manner." It requires its performers (mainly female) to act out comic sketches mixed with dancing that pokes fun at everything.
