The first movie theater that I went to was Alamo Drafthouse....

Last year on food blog Wide Open Eats, reviewer J. Marie Martin made the bold move of claiming Kerbey Lane Cafe’s Kerbey Queso was the best queso in the entire state of Texas— without even including Torchy’s Tacos’ Green Chile Queso on the list. To revisit the age-old debate of Torchy’s vs....

When I hear someone mention Marvel, I think about a big-time hero fighting a bad guy and getting the girl. It seems like a handsome good-guy, most likely played by an actor named Chris, beats up an ugly bad guy every time. “Venom” directed by Ruben Fleischer and produced by Marvel Entertainment, owned b...

Last year Bowie was sued by Gonzaga University because we were using their copyrighted logo, and that meant that we had to give our mascot Buster the Bulldawg a makeover.    Do I think that the lawsuit w...
