Mark your calendar for Saturday, March 25th (2 to 6pm) and consider skipping breakfast that morning, because the Ivy Tavern is hosting its first annual Chili Cookoff. For three in a half glorious hours, interested parties can stroll about, sampling chili from eight different teams, drinking $4 wells and $3 domestics, and enjoying some tunes from Whiskey Pants.

We picked up the news yesterday afternoon that Tom and Lisa Georgalis, the owners of The Ivy Tavern located on Lemmon Avenue purchased the Windmill, the long time cocktail lounge considered the first craft cocktail house in Dallas and is located on Maple and one time home of Charlie Papaceno who now owns Industry Alley. Sound confusing? We have been promised a full press release explaining all the fun details sometime this morning.

white people love to say we need to fill our hearts with more love in this post-trump world. this upsets me (and many others) greatly, as a denial of our right to anger and resistance. but it also upsets me because it perverts and appropriates what has always been, to me, a critical resistance practice.
when white people say we need to fill our hearts with more love, they most likely do not mean the following. but i do:
- love black people. love blackness. unlearn all the anti blackness in you that has been passed down through your own culture, that has perhaps caused you to not love yourself. understand loving blackness as a key underpinning of how to become free.
- love people of the same sex. love trans folx. love your friends. love your friends’ children. resist the idea that love only exists in a nuclear family formation between…

Traditionally, the fall and winter holidays are the time when we reach out to family and friends, often with a ubiquitous holiday card, sometimes enclosing new pictures of the family, or a letter trying to stuff in every notable thing anyone in the family has done since the last letter. When I was a kid, we taped the cards we received to a glass door in our living room, and we would try to guess how soon after Thanksgiving we would receive something from that one relative who always sent the first card of the season.
My dad was a graphic designer and had artist friends. Their holiday cards were always my favorites, and I could often guess who sent the card based on its creative style. Finding artists’ holiday cards in the DMA Archives always reminds me of that tradition, so I thought I would share a series of cards by cartoonist Jerry Doyle from the…

on november 9, millions of americans woke up and for the first time realized this country is racist, and sexist, and classist, and many other -ists. maybe you’re one of them. maybe you started wearing a safety pin (0.5 woke points), or maybe you called your senator about #noDAPL (3 woke points), or maybe you took a class on intersectionality in college (5 woke points).
i’m just kidding. there is no such thing as woke points, because wokeness is not a competition (use of ‘woke’ while non-black: minus 50 woke points). in all seriousness, i’m noticing an epidemic of people who are beginning to have a social justice political analysis, or who have had a political analysis for a while, but who do not have a method to act on that analysis.
it’s great that many more people are beginning to develop their political consciousnesses. please continue! read here and
