Give 'Em Something To Talk About.

While many of us have undoubtedly vowed to eat better in 2015, we're probably still overlooking some plentiful sources of vitamins and minerals — namely the ones found in fruit peels. Yeah, that part of our between meal snacks we're tossing straight in the rubbish bin has several times more vitamins and fiber than the juicy goodness that lies inside.

It's true, things aren't always as they seem. Just because you've always thrown peels away for years doesn't mean you can't reevaluate everything you know about nature's candy. Likewise, you shouldn't pre-judge Monday nights. Throw out everything you know about the typically boring start of the week, because there's plenty of reasons to leave the house tonight.

High Fidelity Lecture Series at Off the Record (Free)
What's the current state of DFW music? Considering all the recent Grammy nominees and and major label signees, we'd say things are healthier than ever around these parts. Of course, nobody asked us to weigh in on the health of the local scene. Oh well, their loss. Assuming things stay civil tonight, Dallas Observer music editor Jeff “PonyBoy” Gage, D Magazine culture editor “Two-Bit” Chris Mosley, and our own “Sodapop” Pete Freedman will engage in a healthy dialogue regarding the state of the local scene.

Force Majeure at Texas Theatre
In the vain of that Seinfeld episode where George knocks over a room full of women and children escaping what he thinks is an apartment fire, this highly acclaimed Swedish disaster film centers on a husband that leaves the wife and kids behind to fend in the midst of an avalanche.

Outward Bound Mixtape Sessions at Crown and Harp (Free)
This regular Monday night event promises to be anything but regular. Curated by the always cutting edge Stefan Gonzalez, Dallas' best, if not most interesting drummer, these pretty-much-weekly events tend to host some of the most challenging and “out there” performers in town. For instance, this week's edition includes performances from Gonzalez's family band, Yells at Eels, as well as Peladini, Viator and Burnt Bridge Road. You may love what you hear, or you may hate it. Either way you absolutely won't find it boring.

Badass Jazz at Amsterdam Bar (Free)
While Monday is typically a slow night for most bars, it remains one of the Amsterdam's busiest. That much be credited to local sax wizard Shelly Carrol and his crop of old-school jazz cronies. Just because there's no cover charge doesn't mean this isn't the best jazz event in town. Don't believe us? Carrol proves as much on a weekly basis.
