City of Ate’s Alice Laussade dumped this box of processed food on Campo Modern Country Bistro chef Matt McCallister and demanded he make an appetizing appetizer worthy of Super Bowl Sunday.
Here’s the gauntlet:
Dearest Chef McCallister,
The Super Bowl is this weekend, right? Right. Howsabout you pretend for a moment that you care about football and create an appetizer (or two) that elevate(s) these ingredients.
You must use every ingredient in the box. (Note: You are also allowed to add ingredients to your dish that are not in the box.)
We’ll see you and your progressive philosophy in two days. Good luck!
P.S. We promise that all of the ingredients in your box were locally sourced. (Target on Abrams.)
Oreo cookies (Double Stuf)
Bartles & Jaymes wine coolers (Fuzzy Navel)
Ruffles (Molten Hot Wings)
Hebrew National Hot Dogs
Ranch Dip powder mix
Archer Farms Multigrain Chips (Fiesta Seven Layer Dip)
I can’t wait to see what the good chef does with this.
Check this out: Bring a printout of this Cafe Brazil blog post to any Cafe Brazil location (I’ll suggest the one in Bishop Arts) today and buy a drink, and you’ll get a free vegetarian entree.
All there is to it.
Kevin Obregon, perennial Con Artist and octopus fan, has vacated The Cube Creative on Tyler Street for an artist in residency program at the Belmont Hotel.
“I have set up a new studio at The Belmont Hotel in the hills of West Dallas where I will be helping to develop a new Artist-in-Residency geared toward showcasing local artists,” Obregon said in a Facebook note.
“Though I will miss my neighbors in the Tyler Davis area, I am not abandoning you by any means,” Obregon continued. “I will always show you love, as well as funneling every guest and culture-seeker that comes through the Belmont to your eclectic offerings, for true-to-form in what the hotel stands for, people seek out authenticity, creativity and personality.”
Additionally, Obregon said he will be helping street artist Shepard Fairey as he looks to cover the walls of Dallas.
“I will of course still be painting, drawing, sculpting, writing and muraling,” he added. “In fact, as of this writing, I will be assisting in the execution of Sheperd Fairey’s stenciled murals in a matter of hours, thanks to the Dallas Contemporary as well as working on a new, somewhat surrealist painting depicting theMother Goose nursery rhyme, ‘The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe.’”
According to Michael Granberry at the DMN, Shepard Fairey, who is known for his Andre the Giant “OBEY” designs and the iconic poster he designed for President Obama’s campaign, will be creating a dozen or more murals throughout Dallas.
Sites include Oak Cliff, Deep Ellum, and West Dallas, Granberry said. “Highland Park is not on the list,” the writer added.
In any case, keep your eyes peeled. Fairey will be spinning at the Dallas Contemporary on Friday, so surely we should be seeing his work popping up on a blank wall near you.
Oak Cliff Organics founder Andrea Bithell will be hosting a talk on vermicomposting, aquaponics, and vegetable gardening at Repotted today. Head over to the West Davis garden center at 11 a.m. to hear Bithell discuss ways to make your garden thrive in our challenging climate.
Also, Repotted is hosting a gardening workshop in February and is looking for “citizen gardners” to participate. For $30 you’ll learn to build raised beds, how to use a trellis for climbing plants, and how to build a rain barrel system. For more information, visit the North Texas Citizen Gardner website.

Tomorrow, Oil and Cotton Creative Exchange is hosting an “Intro to Encaustics.” Yes, I had to look up “encaustics,” too. Head over to the studio at Tyler and Seventh streets at 10 a.m.
Tomorrow afternoon, Preservation Dallas Young Professionals will be helping Calvary Baptist Church clean up the sanctuary’s interior as preparation for the church’s upcoming facelift. Volunteers can head over to the church starting at 1 p.m.

OK, maybe I went overboard with that last part, but in any case, the stylists at Studio 410 are here to help.
