Have you seen the movie Inside Out?  My little kid and I checked it out last weekend and I loved it.  If you go to a show after 7pm today (June 23rd) at any area Studio Movie Grill location they will donate the ticket proceeds to benefit people affected by Texas tornadoes and storms.

A five-acre tract owned by the city of Richardson along Central Expressway will become Restaurant Park next summer.  The area will feature up to seven restaurants with patio dining around a central plaza.  Two restaurants have committed to the project so far: The Rock Wood Fired Kitchen and VertsKebap.  Read more here.
