As the name suggests, Premier Gun Show produces some of the most popular gun shows across the state of Texas. At the shows, which include The Original Fort Worth Gun Show, DFW Premier Gun Shows at Big Town, and others in Houston, Waco, and San Antonio, dealers showcase firearms, including collectables, used firearms, and new guns right from their manufacturers. But the ample space of the convention halls also fill with other collectables. Depending on the show, visitors might find Western-style clothing, militaria, camouflage, knives, and firearms accessories.

Glowing boundary rails line the pitch-black corridors of Lunar Mini Golf's putting surfaces, guiding mini golfers and their orbs across a black-lit dreamscape surrounded by neon flourishes. As players attempt to sink hole-in-ones, the vibrant course thwarts their efforts with topsy-turvy surfaces, jutting ridges, and a gallery of luminous animals and bug-eyed aliens whispering commentary from inside the walls. Guests can become mobile accoutrements in the phosphorescent scenery by snagging necklaces and other glow-in-the-dark knickknacks available for sale, helping players identify opponents' movements and accentuate celebratory dances with glow-stick flair. The course's darkened alleys provide fun, casual outings for players of all abilities, as well as an eclectic venue for the birthday parties of future adults.

At Sip-n-Doodle, colors swirl, spread, and mix over canvases while lively conversations crackle.

Participants are encouraged to bring snacks and a beverage of their choice, the better to sip as they daringly work outside the lines. The studio provides all the necessary painting supplies, cups, and bottle openers, as well as blow dryers should works not be completely dry by the end of the night.

Multitalented country-music artist Sara Evans draws from her arsenal of chart-topping hits at the 6th Annual Fundraising Gala for the Mesquite Education Foundation. Sara has specialized in old-fashioned country music since 1997, when her debut album started a snowball of multiplatinum successes and fans piled up like breaking-and-entering charges against Santa. After a sabbatical of scribing faith-based novels such as Love Lifted Me and hoofing it on Dancing with the Stars, Sara returned to her chart-topping perch with her latest album, Stronger, featuring the hit “A Little Bit Stronger.” Although striking enough to be voted one of People’s 50 Most Beautiful People in 2005, it’s Sara’s buoyant croon that breaks and mends hearts as she bellows anthems such as “No Place That Far” and “Born to Fly.”
