In support of her high-decibel new album, Rihanna kicks off her hotly anticipated LOUD tour with emphatic gusto and a sizzling roster of special guests. Like an art show at a sundae bar, the LOUD tour floods the senses, enchanting audiences with lavishly designed sets, myriad costume changes, move-busting dancers, and Rihanna's songbook of Grammy magnets. Crooner Cee Lo Green augments the songful offerings with his own vocal talents, and Roc Nation rapper and rhythm scientist J. Cole further helps resuscitate ear drums traumatized by the outside world's blaring car horns and shrill howler monkeys.

At each of several one-day festivals held throughout the country, thousands of revelers unite in an epic clash of pulp, beer, and live music. Armed with a cache of 300,000 tomatoes, participants don protective bathing suits and goggles and hurl the fruit at one another during a two-hour battle. Throughout the afternoon, live music and costume contests offer an entertaining respite from the front lines, as bartenders dispense drafts of beer to attendees older than 21, refueling soldiers' morale before they resign to writing goodbye letters to their produce vendors back home. All tomatoes used during the event are past ripe and already fated for disposal, making the battle an efficient means of tossing them before their cursed transformation into singing Muppets.

Brought to Dallas by the same owners as La Popular Tamale House, Peak & Elm Cocina Y Bar offers fresh, authentic Mexican fare made from locally sourced ingredients. The casual BYOB eatery is situated, naturally, at the corner of Peak and Elm, and represents what Thrillist?s Aaron Miller calls ?an homage to old East Dallas.? The writer notes the bar's collection of local artwork, wooden fixtures straight from area houses, and knob-adorned bar as proof to his claim. Old Dallas or not, Peak & Elm?s food is a twist on classic Mexican cuisine, thanks to items such as tamale pies, fresh ceviche, and tacos tapatios?taquitos filled with Prime beef and served with sides of pickled cabbage-and-carrot slaw.
