Don't Kill The Vibe.
Just in time for Thanksgiving, a 65-year-old French inventor claims he's invented a pill that'll make one's farts smell like chocolate.
For obvious reasons, this little game-changer should come in handy on this annual day of feasting.
And, after putting in your obligations with the fam, the following list should prove itself rather handy as well.
Turkey Trot at City Hall Plaza
If you wake up pre-9 a.m. you might consider participating in one of Dallas' oldest Thanksgiving traditions. Even if you're not up for trying to smash the eight-miles-in-37:05 record that was set over 40 years ago, it's still a good idea to try and burn a few calories heading into today's engorging session if at all possible.
Planes, Trains and Automobiles at Alamo Drafthouse
John Hughes was more than just a one-trick pony. Aside from mastering the teen comedy genre, he also flexed his odd couple road trip muscle in this 1987 classic. Here you've got Steve Martin in his prime, just trying to get home to spend Thanksgiving with his family, only to be pestered for three straight days by a nyper-annoying shower curtain ring salesman played by John Candy.
Re-Vibe at Crown and Harp (Free)
Every Thursday night since last October, resident DJ Colly T and varying cast of guest DJs held it down with their self-proclaimed “exploration of the deepest, grooviest forms of dance music” at the Henderson Avenue hot spot that taught Dallas to leave the house on Thursday nights. After recently parting ways with Beauty Bar, though, it didn't take long for Colly T to re-up, taking his Vibe party to Lower Greenville. Tonight, Booty Thrill will join him behind the decks.
Anthony Hamilton at Medusa
Hey, it's that guy that sang the choruses on Nappy Roots' “Po' Folks” back in the day! The soul singer's got a few hits to his own credit, too, like 2003's “Charlene.”
Dance Gavin Dance at The Prophet Bar
Throughout its history, the prog-y, post-hardcore outfit Dance Gavin Dance has gone through a revolving door of members, especially from its dual vocalist positions. To that end, last year's Acceptance Speech LP, the band's fifth, marked the debut of yet another vocalist. But fans have come to accept this kind of thing from the band over the years, and, for all intents and purposes, its most recent album doesn't stray too far from the path set forth by its previous efforts.
Big Bang at Beauty Bar
Before DJ Sober returned his long-running Thursday night weekly to its original home last week, he told us he was already looking forward to this week's edition. Said Sobes: “I just really like Beauty Bar in the holidays especially. Maybe that's corny, but it always feels like a house party.” That doesn't sound corny at all.
