Taco Heads a welcomed addition to neighborhood

By Sara Newberry If you had asked me before I visited Taco Heads, I would have said that Dallas does not need another taqueria. After trying Taco Heads, I am glad that no one asked me, because it might be my new favorite taco place. Nothing is going to replace the authentic tacos at La […]

‘Halloween’ an exceptional movie, and a good scare, too!

‘Halloween’ an exceptional movie, and a good scare, too!

By Chic DiCiccio For many, many people, the last 40 years worth of “Halloween” movies are best forgotten. They attempted to create a weak mythology that turned Michael Myers into some kind of unstoppable monster who never could be killed. There was also the whole eye-roller that turned Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) into his […]

Shock and awe!

Shock and awe!

By Nancy Black My Find Friends app showed a blue dot where my youngest child was at that exact moment. The location? Medical City Fort Worth. What?! They were supposed to be on their way back from a Korean pop band concert at the convention center in Cowtown. Instead, they were at the hospital? I […]

Disability Employment Awareness

LETTER FROM THE GOVERNOR By Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi Gov. Greg Abbott has declared October as Disability Employment Awareness Month in Texas. “The often-used slogan for the Lone Star State’s approach to commerce is that ‘Texas is wide open for business,’” Abbott announced. “This openness and dedication to inclusivity has been a major part of the […]

‘Bad Times at the El Royale’ a well-acted and trippy adventure

‘Bad Times at the El Royale’ a well-acted and trippy adventure

By Chic DiCiccio On September 23, 1994, “Pulp Fiction” was released and changed the way that movies could be made. It became okay to have sprawling stories with multiple characters while mashing genres together. Snappy, pop culture-laden dialogue became the new hotness and it spawned countless copycats.  Director/writer Drew Goddard’s second film, “Bad Times at […]

Pizzeria Testa as authentic as they get

Pizzeria Testa as authentic as they get

By Sara Newberry Pizza started out as what we call focaccia, or flatbread, in ancient Rome. What we consider pizza was first created in Naples, in the south of Italy, when tomatoes started to be incorporated as a topping. (Tomatoes were introduced to Europe in the 16th century, after Spanish explorers brought them back from […]

Cat got your thumb?

Cat got your thumb?

By Nancy Black I no longer exist. I have lost my identity. And it is all because of my cat. The cat I rescued, no less, from certain death as she tried to hop across Skillman Street near Home Depot. It all began innocently enough. My cat, now one year old, and I were batting […]

Always go to the funeral

By Nancy Black Am I the only one who gets mad at funerals? Forgive my honesty, but it really ticks me off when a priest, minister or holy leader starts off a funeral or memorial service by saying, “I didn’t know [name of dead person] personally, but I read in his obituary that he was […]

Our justice system fails women

Our justice system fails women

By Judge John Creuzot We cannot afford to continue to sit idly by and remain silent as the number of female inmates in Texas jails and prisons grows higher and higher. Between 1980 and 2018, the percentage of women held in state penal institutions has grown by approximately 861 percent. This is wrong, and we […]

Andrea’s needs some local sourcing

Andrea’s needs some local sourcing

By Sara Newberry   I only ate at La Parrillada, the previous tenant in the space on Gaston that now houses Andrea’s, once. It was fine, average, nothing really memorable good or bad. Andrea’s has changed up the interior slightly and, obviously, has a completely different menu, but the feel is the same in that […]
