Michelle Obama joins “Top Chef” alums in Dallas

For the second year in a row, First Lady Michelle Obama takes her “Let’s Move” initiative to the streets, and this time, it’s coming to Texas — along with some Top Chefs.

Top Chef: Texas is currently running on Bravo, which helps explains Big D for the location of the national tour stopping here on Friday. The aim of the program is to teach kids how to make healthy food choices.

Among the celebrichefs in attendance at DISD schools this Friday will be Tom Colicchio, all-stars winner Richard Blais, dreamboat Fabio Viviani and Jen Carroll.

Dallas ISD is actually a leader in healthy food options for its students, boasting the most “gold” schools of any district in the nation for the Healthier US School Challenge program.

Benise brings his nouveau flamenco to Bass Hall

Long luxurious hair and Spanish guitar — what’s more to say?

Head to Cowtown tonight for some super-sexy Benise. He’s like a romance cover come to life — those eyes, that face, the hair! He’s like Fabio with a guitar. Benise calls his playing nouveau flamenco which fuses Spanish guitar, African tribal influences and rock into a music all his own. The good thing is, he’s got talent! Don’t let the looks fool  you. He has some impressive intricacies in his guitar-playing arsenal.

Of course, we’re going to tell Performing Arts Fort Worth who’s presenting the show that we expect a prominently opened-button shirt.

DEETS: Bass Hall, 525 Commerce St., Fort Worth. $22–$66. 8 p.m. BassHall.com.
