Tip Toe 2 The Lizard Lounge With Riff Raff, Drink To The Three Fates At BrainDead Brewing And Joy Ride With Vandoliers At Gas Monkey Bar N’ Grill.

The existence of UFOs has been confirmed — and by some rather credible sources at that.

With the launch of The Stars Academy of Arts & Science late last year, the American public could soon have a much more expansive understanding of the UFO phenomenon. The organization headed by former Blink-182 guitarist and vocalist Tom DeLonge will also include former members of the CIA, Lockheed Martin and the Department of Defense.

The new organization will basically set out to explain the phenomena that have fascinated the for more than half a century and could signal a new form of openness from the shadowy government organizations that have long been suspected as hiding the truth, which we know is out there.

Will the government finally come out with the truth? We’ll have to wait and see. Sitting at home pining internet threads for UFO theories and explanations probably won’t lead you to any accurate informaiton. But if you choose to do that, at least be sure to check out what’s going on in Dallas today after you log off the web. — Gina Torres

Vandoliers, 4 On The Floor at Gas Monkey Bar N’ Grill
