Rick's Cabaret about to make DFW layovers more fun Dec 15th, 2010 at 12:00PM: Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport is about to get a little sexier. The seventh-busiest airport in the world, with more than 5.7 million passengers passing through it every year (as of 2008), will soon be home to a new gentlemen's club. Now, I know what you're thinking: "airport" strip clubs are usually heinous places. Not far from the airport, they usually attract the lowest of talent and...

Inside Virgin America's mid-continent arrival

Inside Virgin America's mid-continent arrival Dec 6th, 2010 at 5:00PM: I don't think I actually understood the implications of Virgin America's launch into "fortress-hub" Dallas/Fort Worth until we touched down on the tarmac. As we taxied to our gate, I could see nothing but a endless row of silver fuselages; all adorned with the iconic blue & red "AA" logo. It felt almost as if we were silently making our way through the front gates of a modern-day Troy....

10 Congested highways to make you lose your mind tonight Nov 24th, 2010 at 3:30PM: We know that today and tomorrow, traffic is going to be brutal. With 42 million people traveling for the holiday – and 94 percent of them going by car – it's inevitable that someone's going to wind up frustrated.

FBI charges passenger for in-flight grabbing Oct 21st, 2010 at 3:00PM: You need to keep your hands to yourself when you fly – it's just that simple.

Veterans blocked from Wolfgang Puck restaurant in Dallas

Veterans blocked from Wolfgang Puck restaurant in Dallas Oct 17th, 2010 at 9:00AM: Okay, it has to be hard to turn a nonagenarian away from a restaurant, right?

Well, this is what happened at the up-market Five Sixty restaurant, a Wolfgang Puck property in Dallas. Their transgression: failing to meet the dress code. The vets were holding their annual reunion; they...

NYC tops U.S. list of most expensive cities Dec 21st, 2009 at 3:00PM: It's not exactly shocking to see that New York City is the most expensive city in the United States.

So, how can so many bloggers live...

American finds $2.9 billion: more routes added Sep 17th, 2009 at 9:00AM: It's hard to see how the machinations of Wall Street affect the end consumer, sometimes. In the case of American Airlines and its recent pickup of $2.9 billion, you can draw a straight line from the money to the exit row.
