Keep Them Honest with Anderson Cooper.
Once again, it's time to ponder the age-old question: Can one truly have too much of a good thing?
Well, one Olympian found out the hard way over the weekend. Just before his practice runs, self-proclaimed “bored” Russian snowboarder Alexey Sobolev decided to decorate his helmet with a sticker featuring his cell number, figuring he may get a few texts from female fans.
On the one hand, his plan worked — and perhaps even better than Sobolev ever expected. Not only was he getting loads of fan texts to alleviate some of the Sochi dullness. But lots of them, it turns out, contained nude selfies.
Unfortunately, though, Sobolev got so many pics from the ladies that it wound up crashing his phone.
Alas, all good things must come to an end. And even though it's a Monday — and a somewhat quite one at that — it's always good to be reminded to indulge moderately.
An Evening With Anderson Cooper at UTA's College Park Center
It's never easy to carve out a hugely successful path in the field of journalism — even when your mother is Gloria Vanderbilt. As part of UTA's Mavericks Speakers series, Anderson Cooper will discuss the personal struggles he faced while rising from host of ABC's The Mole to presiding over his own show, CNN's Anderson Cooper 360. — Cory Graves
Magic Mike Revue Tribute at Hailey's
While this Magic Mike tribute gig might not boast the star power of Channing Tatum's bare ass, this exotic male revue does promise a much more “up close and personal” experience, with plenty of “audience participation.” Also, for whatever reason, this one's ladies only. We're not quite sure why. — Cory Graves
Badass Jazz at Amsterdam Bar
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 damn jazz event in town. Don't believe us? Carrol proves as much on a weekly basis. –Cory Graves
