Great Big Texas Home Show at Cowboys Stadium

Better hunks and gardens

Whoever put together the celebrity guest panel of the Great Big Texas Home Show surely knows their gay market. This year’s expo of garden ideas and home makeover inspirations is also a major stud fest. HGTV’s Chip Wade, pictured, Bryan Baeumier and William Moss bring their expertise and beef to the worktable this weekend.

DEETS: Cowboys Stadium, 925 N. Collins St., Arlington. Through Sunday. $15.

U2 at Cowboys Stadium: Reviewing both

Gee, how do you characterize a kick-ass concert that was a pain-in-the-ass to attend? It took us 45 minutes in rush hour to drive from Downtown Dallas to Exit 29 in Arlington… and another hour to get from the exit to our parking space. That mean we completely missed opening act Muse, and arrived too late for the up-close photos. (It didn’t help that no one who worked at the stadium seemed to have a clue about anything.)
But while there are still many mega-problems involved with the stadium’s logistics, the facility is marvelous (and very concert-acoustically friendly). And U2? Read about them after the jump.

U2 at Cowboys Stadium last night

Arnold Wayne Jones made it out to the show last night. He’ll be posting his review here a bit later. Until then, take a peek at his photos. The concert looked damned fantastic.
