So a Maryland woman was hungry, and, as one does, she decided to go to Sonic to get some food.
But then a funny thing happened: As she was blasting through her fries, she found a bag of weed stuffed inside of her order.
Weirdly, though, instead of keeping it and having a better night than most, she went back to Sonic to complain. A store employee then came forward, claiming the bag must have somehow fallen from an apron.
That employee was then fired.
The lesson here is to not look a gift horse in the mouth. When life hands you marijuana, you should smoke that shit.
And when life hands you cool options for activities, you should get your ass off of the couch. — Chase Whale
USA vs. Belgium at AT&T Stadium
We made to the Round of 16!! Will we make it past Belgium? If we can keep them from making late-game goals, then there's kind of a chance! And this is cool: Jerry Jones and Co. are opening up the gates of AT&T Stadium out in Arlington for a free watching party of this one. So get there early and claim your spot for the shouting, nail-biting, swearing and cheering that is bound to happen. The game starts at 3 p.m., but know that the anthems and lineup introductions happen before that. — Chris Escarfullery
Mini Mansions at Three Links
After Queens of the Stone Age wrapped up two years of touring in support of the album Era Vulgaris at the end of 2008, the band's members took some much needed time off. Only, nobody really stopped working. Frontman Josh Homme formed the supergroup Them Crooked Vultures with Dave Grohl and Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones. Keyboardist Dean Fertita did the same with the Jack White-led supergroup The Dead Weather. Drummer Joey Castillo toured with Eagles of Death Metal. Guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen started up a side project called Sweethead. And bassist Michael Shuman did the same with pop trio Mini Mansions. Mini Mansions, meanwhile, has been in town lately, prepping its newest LP. We recent caught up with the band to talk about those preparations in advance of tonight's show. You can read that interview right here. — Cory Graves
Comedy Open Mic Night at Dallas Comedy House
Somewhere out there, there is a VHS tape of you being caught off guard by the prompt to “Say something funny!” Well, you blew it. You froze. But it's OK. We've all been there before. And, thanks to Dallas Comedy House’s Tuesday night open mics you've now got the perfect venue in which to redeem yourself. Or, you know, just to watch that one guy who totally thinks he’s the funniest guy in the office bomb magnificently. — CG
Sam Anderson and Friends at Magnolia Motor Lounge
Be it a song swap, or just another night jamming with one of his many pals in the Fort Worth music scene, or performing with his band the Quaker City Night Hawks Anderson always seems to turn it up a notch when he's performing at the MML. And no matter how many times he seems to do so he always manages to pack the house. While the Night Hawks have called the Lounge their homebase, we’re beginning to wonder if it’s not something even more to Anderson; We wouldn't be surprised if he slept on a cot in the kitchen when the place closed, because above all, he never looks more at home than when he’s playing on the Magnolia Motor Lounge stage. — CG
The Showdown with Blake Ward at Sundown
The theme to Blake Ward’s award-winning Sundown residency may vary from week-to-week (depending on what movie they’re showing on the upstairs patio, what new blockbuster album came out that day, or who is playing next door at the Granada) but the consistency of Ward’s batch of indie-dance tunes and weekly special guests remain ever-steady. The half-price droughts the bar serves up all night long are just an added bonus. — CG
