  1. Alyssa, Bandera on Greenville Ave is closed already? That's no good. That place was countrified cool with all that wood exterior/ walls, Lonestar beer, and open mic. I'm pumped about this Ishi show. If you don't already know, Colin and Alyssa bring the party. They kicked LA and New York's ace by rallying the biggest group of supporters for their Arcarde bar karaoke and mural unveiling extravaganza, where I made a fool of myself singing three 80s and one 90s song. They had giveaways and I ended up winning a free night in a suite at The Fairmont. My girlfriend won a $50 gift certificate from Twisted Root. We enjoyed the heck out of that today... yum, yum. Thanks Ford, Colin and Alyssa. If these two don't deserve to win, I don't know who does. Every RSVP helps, even if you don't go to the show (which you should because it's free and awesome), scroll up and click on the link and RSVP for four anyway.

  2. Get your dance shoes on... this will be a dance party. Go Team Dallas! Go RSVP already!

  3. @Neil Yes, Bandera closed a few weeks ago! Everything about that place was awesome, and I wish I knew why it closed down.

    And I second everything else you said!
