Whether you’ve seen Paris, France, or just Paris, Texas, there’s nothing like a great photo to help capture the moment. The problem is, that grainy blur of a picture saved on your cell phone doesn’t count. Luckily, local photographer Bob Munro and his company Sacred Pause can help expand your dark room horizons. Bob’s traveled all over the world documenting his expeditions with stunning photos. Hang one up in your place and in no time you’ll be doing your best Golden Girls impersonation, “Picture it, Italy, 2006,” and passing the experience off as your own. But Sacred Pause isn’t just…

Growing weary of the mudslinging, roadside-diner visits and alleged crocodile tears? Then you’re completely nuts. And now, thanks to the Hillary Nutcracker, you have something productive to pass the time while watching round-the-clock coverage of the candidates desperately vying for airtime like so many ho-bags on Flavor of Love. As far as novelties go, this one’s pretty inspired. And she’s the perfect gift whether you’re rooting for Mrs. Bill or want to send her in the mail like a dirty bomb to your staunch right-wing brother-in-law. Best of all, she’s actually practical (at least more so than the Hillary and…

For nearly 10 years, the beautifully designed art space, The Trammell & Margaret Crow Collection of Asian Art, has showcased some exquisite works. All free to the public, no less. The permanent collection features art from all over Asia, but a new year-long exhibit, Texas Collects Asia 2008, launches with art from the Land of the Rising Sun – Japan. Now, for those of you whose sole appreciation for Japanese culture exists exclusively from eating dinner at Benihana, watching reruns of old Godzilla movies or living vicariously through Paris Hilton’s jaunts around Tokyo, then get ready to raise your cultural…

We can’t promise you’ll “feel the beat from the tambourine,” but you can check out high-fashion threads, nosh on naughty hors d’oeuvres or celebrate your own VH1 “whatever happened to that band” moment.

There’s nothing like a power lunch in downtown Dallas to make you feel important. Well, except maybe an all-you-can-eat burrito bar on your private Learjet. Now that Scene, the trendy new kid on the block, is rolling out the red carpet for lunch, you can experience its innovative cuisine and a couple cocktails in the same amount of time it would take to make a run for the border. The chic space features vibrant prints of Julia Child greeting you as you walk in and a large, open kitchen complete with video cameras. Projected on the large walls above the…

Turn on just about any home decorating show, and you’ll see some mincing host droning on and on about how fabulous it is to bring the outside elements into interior design. We agree, except that nature can be heavy and full of bugs and dirt. In lieu of pimping your place with sticks and stones like some tragic little pig, try Felt Pebbles made of 100% merino wool. They are softer, less likely to break your foot after rolling off the coffee table and not nearly as played out as that bowl full of fleur-de-lis encrusted spheres. And you can…

It’s time to release your inner G.I. Joe. Beneath that veneer of meticulous grooming, superior fashion and a soul-deep love of dance music, beats the heart of a would-be marksman. So why not indulge the urge, feel the steel in your hand and drink in the intoxicating aroma of gunpowder and testosterone with a trip to the DFW Gun Range. Take a walk on the butchy side and spend the afternoon busting a cap up in something. Whether you’ve never held a gun before or just want to brush up on spelling your name with machine gun fire, this is…

Round water bottles: Necessity for living? Or perpetrators of boring conformity? Step slowly away from the mindless sheep around you and reach for a bottle that will turn heads as life unfolds in slow-motion as you tilt back the bottle ever-so-seductively, your lips spread narrowly to capture every drop of the cold, refreshing life-nectar pouring forth. H20 as designed by SEI (prounounced “say”) Water of New York City has quickly become the Prada of Watta, baby. The cool flask-inspired shape takes up less space in the fridge and fits discreetly in your man-purse, back pocket or artificial leg. The water…

Diversity’s the name of the game this week, filled with networking opportunities, gay Republicans, a hot-ticket fundraiser and a few hunky men thrown in for good measure. Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill Friday, January 25 through February 17 It’s the Holiday season once again, except without the credit card debt, inflatable lawn ornaments and that creepy guy getting kids to sit on his lap.
