Katie Awards entries are now being accepted Print E-mail
by Sharon Adams    Sat, Jul 26, 2008, 06:04 PM

My hat is off to Hugh Aynesworth, president of the Press Club of Dallas, Tony Pederson and the entire group of journalists, teachers and others who have donated untolled hours of strategic planning, hard work and precious time to bring the Press Club of Dallas back to a position of respect. I have followed the activities of PCD since joining a few years back and like everyone else, was horrified at the scandal of 2007.  But that's over. Working for thousands and thousands of hours combined, so many  have brought the Press Club of Dallas back on its feet, standing tall again.

Kudos to Gloria Campos and Cheryl Hall for taking on the chairmanship of the 2008 Katie Awards.  Their personal message says it best. It's here, taken from PR Newswire.

Discounts for Ring of Fire at Music Hall at Fair Park Print E-mail
by Sharon Adams    Mon, May 19, 2008, 11:43 AM

Dallas Summer Musicals is offering discounts for "Ring of Fire- The Music of Johnny Cash" now playing at the Music Hall at Fair Park.

The parking is easy. Remember, you can enjoy dinner at the Crystal Terrace restaurant, located inside the Music Hall, before the show and reservations are suggested. There is also dining at the Old Mill Restaurant, just a block away, inside Fair Park.

fire300.jpgIn many ways Johnny Cash wrote and sang about the lives we all lead, regardless of where we lead them. If, watching RING OF FIRE, you feel yourself being drawn back to your roots, it isn't accidental -- even if you've forgotten what those roots are. From the heart of the songs of Johnny Cash comes a unique musical show about love and faith, struggle and success, rowdiness and redemption, home and family. RING OF FIRE features 38 of the music legend’s songs such as “Country Boy,” “A Thing Called Love,” “Five Feet High and Rising,” “Daddy Sang Bass,” “Ring of Fire,” “I Walk the Line,” “I’ve Been Everywhere,” “The Man in Black,” and his final hit, “Hurt.” By the end of the show you will feel that you have spent the evening in the presence of an extraordinary and real man.

Drew Pearson Honorary Chair of Grape Escape this weekend Print E-mail
by Sharon Adams    Tue, May 13, 2008, 11:00 AM

Bar3.jpgThe Fish Sushi Bar and Lounge and many other West Village restaurants and retailers are taking part in  Sangria Stop-N-Shop and Grape Escape this Sunday benefitting Heart House.  

"We've developed a delicious recipe for this new featured drink, Sake Sangria," said Danny Kim, manager of The Fish. "Our patio dining is open and it is the perfect spot for people-watching."  The patio faces Cityplace West Boulevard, which is going to be turned into a pedestrian walkway on Sunday, May 18th for the events.

Read more about The Fish Sushi Bar & Lounge in this article in the May edition of CEO. You can also access the article by going to www.dmagazine.com and it's on the front page.  I love the bento box lunch, which is featured on Mondays for $10. Lots of great food and great atmosphere. Very Sex In the City.

Many know The Fish from the ultra-hip Houston location, which has been visited by such local bold faced names as Jerry Jones, Dirk Nowitzki and more. Here's a link to more. info. about The Fish Sushi Bar.Lounge.
