See the gorgeous sights from the glamorous fete.
A guide to the restaurants serving holiday feasts.
It's the story of a timeless affair.
These delicious bites were the year's standouts.
There's no room for the blues during this outsize concert featuring the sounds of Crescent City. The Preservation Hall Jazz Band, named for the famous French Quarter venue that many New Orleans jazz musicians have called their musical home since the early 1960s, will put a brassy, swing-filled spin on Christmas favorites.
After a seemingly interminable wait, The Desolation of Smaug (we will always say "smog," not "smow-guh") is pretty much here. The folks at the Drafthouse are nearly as excited as we are, since they're devoting an entire day leading up to the midnight release to all things Hobbit. As you enter the lobby, you'll be greeted by a quartet from the Richardson Symphony Orchestra playing selections from Howard Shore's The Lord of the Rings trilogy score as well as An Unexpected Journey. There's also a special Hobbit menu that includes first and second breakfast, "Elven lembas bread," "Smaug's Treasure Fries," and more.
