Question by Gram Parsons Returns: Can anyone recommend a cool hotel in the Dallas area? Coming from Ca.for a Cowboys game. Money is not an issue?

Best answer:

Answer by Hector
Ha..I live in Arlington, thats where the new Dallas cowboys stadium is in, Gaylord is pretty far away..around 30 minutes witht the highway..If you want a good night life..try checking Downtown Dallas and see if any hotels are available..
it also depends what you mean..as a cool hotel??..is there really such a thing?
..haha..hmm..Gaylord is fun actually..so if you feel like drving 30 minutes to the stadium..and waiting another 40 minutes to get parking there which cost from 40-80..or maybe more dollars..depending on where you want to park.. be my guest..
you should check out.. Crowne Plaza Suites by Arlington..theyre nice looking..sometimes they got some stuff going down at the lounge..but then again..it is a hotel.
but night life..definitely downtown dallas..plenty of clubs you can go to..from club Purgatory to club Karma..
well..I hope this helped out..

When will windows Longhorn be coming out?

Question by Fire Halo: When will windows Longhorn be coming out?
I hope that it is soon.

Best answer:

Answer by lmanlo
It is called Windows Vista and it may come out like January to February of 2007. and if someone has it, would be downloaded or it’s the Beta that just came out. But if you download it, it may have some problems than just wait when it comes out. If you want to download it, wait until it comes out, it’s more better when it has come out than when it isn’t.

Can you answer a question that I put. Please! really need an answer for that question.

Bok Center Tickets – Country And Rock Are Coming To Okc

Bok Center Tickets – Country And Rock Are Coming To Okc

“A little bit country and a little bit rock and roll” isn’t a phrase reserved for clean-cut Mormon pop stars. It could actually describe concerts coming to Oklahoma City’s BOK Center in April. Expect things to get a little wild this spring when Bon Jovi and Dashboard Confessional rock the BOK April 8. Later in the month, on April 13, Tim McGraw and red-hot country music trio Lady Antebellum will get you kicking up your boots to some swinging tunes. All in all, April will be a pretty good month for music fans looking to relax with their friends.

First things first: It’s admittedly a little strange to pair the hair-rock tunes of Bon Jovi with the emo crowd (represented by Dashboard Confessional). It’s not clear how the two outfits linked up, but it should be a pretty good show, in any case. Bon Jovi is the more mainstream of the two acts, having reached superstar status way back in the ’80s, when the band just started out. They had plenty of hits littering the Billboard charts, but became especially well known for one hit song in particular: “Livin’ on a Prayer,” which you know fans will be eager to hear when they show up at the BOK Center.

Dashboard Confessional, on the other hand, still has more of an alternative status. The band’s frontman, Chris Carrabba, started Dashboard as a side project back in 1999. The group’s formation was a way to break off from the trend of rock music and focus on emotional, often acoustic music. And it certainly earned Carrabba a lot of notice. The band’s third record—A Mark, A Mission, A Brand, A Scar—hit number two on the Billboard charts upon release. Dashboard Confessional was immediately big news on the music scene, and the band’s records were flying off shelves. The alternative music of Dashboard is perhaps more heart-on-the-sleeve than Bon Jovi’s hits, but audiences heading to see one of two outfits when they play a concert together will be sure to enjoy both bands.

On April 13, the BOK Center flips the switch from rock to country. Tim McGraw is the big draw here, being a superstar on the country scene who came up in the industry through the ’80s and ’90s to swipe the country-pop throne from Garth Brooks. Today, he’s still a highly respected artist in the genre, and McGraw continues to put out records that rocket to the top of the charts. His last album was 2009’s Southern Voice, the title track of which recently hit the top of the Hot Country Singles chart on Billboard.

Accompanying McGraw on this tour will be the country-pop trio Lady Antebellum. The band formed in 2006, and wasted no time in earning a reputation for energetic live shows. Their debut album turned them into a major hit on the country scene, and by 2008 Lady A was being called the New Artist of the Year by the Country Music Association. They’ve been nominated for four Grammy Awards so far in their career, winning one for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group for “I Run to You.”
