Hey, At Least Now We Know Where the Playboy Super Bowl Party'll Be: Across from City Hall!

I thought about stopping off for an adult beverage at the downtown Aloft bar, W XYZ, the other night after a meeting at City Hall, but passed -- maybe later. Like, oh, I dunno -- Super Bowl week, maybe. Says the announcement that just landed in the Unfair Park in-box, Bud Light's taking over the hotel February 3 through 7; hence the name Bud Light Hotel, which, says the release, "will feature a full lineup of exclusive events and live concert performances that are sure to make it Dallas' hottest venue for four days."

Maybe, maybe not. But the website details who's playing and when -- beginning with The Fray and Lifehouse (no thanks) the first night, followed by a Playboy party (oh, no, I would never ...), a Nelly and Ke$ha concert, with Dierks Bentley and Jack Ingram wrapping up on closing night. Promises the release, "The Bud Light Hotel features the world's largest tent (130' x 260'), which will house luxury VIP areas and transform the hotel's parking lot into a premiere concert venue capable of hosting 3,500-plus guests (21 years or age and older)." Jim, noted Super Bowl skeptic, has already asked to cover the Playboy party. At least it sounds fun. And: Mayor Tom can always just walk to it.

Now, one has. And he happens to be on the other side of the planet. We got a message yesterday from Russell Baillie, entertainment editor of the New Zealand Herald, in Auckland. Russell told us that he'd seen our articles, so when he had the opportunity to interview

Enough with the corporate T&A already! With all the titty bar ads, and stories like this one, the Dallas Observer is way too close to branding itself as a middle-to-lowbrow buffet line for neanderthals. There is a time and place for admiring the sublime as expressed in a lovely bosom, sure. But the silcone chests and Photoshopped vixens of Playboy are overexposed in multiple senses already. How much coverage does the biomedical research at UT Southwestern get in this here rag? Is the Dallas Observer merely boob bait for Bubba? What about the Great Books scholars at the University of Dallas, or humanities researchers at SMU? Would your clickstream metrics suffer intolerably? This town has deeper layers of intellectual and artistic energy than the Observer would let on.

Will they be selling tickets to these events? There are some many events taking place that it is overwhelming. I have only found www.supersundayhq.com as for regarding a listing of all the events. It is a great site but I am open to other good websites. Any ideas?

Again, it REALLY sucks that Dallas didn't land Jerry World. We are seeing NO benefit from the Super Bowl. Damn you, Arlington!
