Show Some Wealth and Taste with Deep Ellum Brewing Co.
According to a new study recently conducted in the UK, single men only wash their bed sheets four times a year.
Women, on the other hand, change their sheets twice a month on average.
Come to think of it, when was the last time any of us changed our sheets? Like taking showers or eating Wolf brand chili, if you can't remember the last time, it has probably been too long.
We don't blame you, there's always just so much going on. Take tonight, for example, when an average Tuesday in Dallas far exceeds a good Friday in a lot of other places.
All we're saying is, if you do wind up putting off your laundry for another day, we wouldn't necessarily blame you. Just try to fit it in sometime this week. Who wants to lay around in three months' worth of dust, sweat and dead skin cells, anyway?
Way Out West: A Photographic Journey Through The American West at Goodfriend Beer Garden & Burger House
While he's known primarily for his immaculate shots of the Dallas skyline and other city buildings, Daniel Driensky's no one-trick pony. The photographer and sometime Central Track contributor is also quite well-known for his portrait work, and is even the entity responsible for latest album cover from The O's. Tonight's encore reception will focus on shots the photographer has taken during trips out West over the past two years. — Cory Graves
Deep Ellum Brewing Co.'s Wealth and Taste Launch at The Common Table
The Common Table is releasing this year's batch of Deep Ellum Brewing Co.'s Wealth and Taste (read: their barrel-aged Golden Strong Ale). When we reviewed the beer last year, we called it “scary,” citing its “9.5 percent ABV, a citrus taste up front and a wine finish that is remarkably light.” It has such a good reputation around the brewery that several employees we spoke with joked about wanting to keep the beer around solely for in-house consumption, likening releasing the beer to losing a limb. Joked sales and brand “ninja” Tait Lifto: “How do you cut off your own arm?” — CG
Margo's Contra-Bands at The Margo Jones Theatre
The Margo Jones Theatre is in need of funds to purchase some new equipment and to make some other upgrades. But in lieu of turning to Kickstarter or another crowdfunding vehicle, the gallery has decided to go the much more creative/ambitious route by holding twice monthly “Contra-Band” events, in which they'll turn the space over to one of the city's creative musical minds and allow them to do literally whatever they want with it. Sounds like it could be a recipe for disaster — or quite possibly some of the most interesting musical happenings in the city. More likely, and depending on who's performing at the venue in a given week, the results will fall somewhere in the middle. Those who make $15 donations tonight will be rewarded with “an audio/video sensory experience” courtesy of Clay Pendergrass and DJ S(eye). Oh, and tacos. — CG
Book of Mormon at Winspear Opera House
The Book Of Mormon, a musical trip into the heart of America's unique homegrown religion from the creators of South Park, has won countless awards, sold out everywhere its gone, and is absolutely hysterical. If you waited until now to buy tickets, though, you've probably missed your opportunity to purchase any at face value. Hey, you can always pay the steep markup added by ticket brokers! There are certainly worse things in the world to spend your money on. The collection plate, perhaps? — Stephen Young
