Mama Tried

Named for one of the greatest honky-tonk songs ever composed in country history, this Texas bar is an essential destination for fans of real cowboy music. Situated in Dallas, the music venue offers true-blue country and outlaw country tunes as well as yard games like cornhole, washers and Jenga for guests to play while relaxing with a cold beer while having a good time dancing at dance contests hosted regularly here.

Mama Tried is one of those unforgettable songs that define an entire genre, instantly emblematizing country music with its fingerpicked guitar intro and bend electric twang. Although many artists have covered this track over the years (including Porter Wagoner’s rendition of Green, Green Grass of Home and Johnny Cash’s Folsom Prison Blues), its message and delivery remain unparalleled.


Lullaby could have the makings of an enjoyable horror flick, yet is marred by subpar performances and an unremarkable storyline. After an unnerving history lesson and unnerving birth scene ensues. Rachel (the mother in question), reads her son a lullaby from an unknown book which initially works well until it becomes evident that this book contains demons, mutations and other supernatural threats hidden inside it – something Rachel soon discovers for herself!

Oona Chaplin makes an evocative distraught new mom in this film; however, her choices don’t quite ring true and at times her performances don’t resonate as an understandably terrified and sleep-deprived husk. Still, the other cast members hold up well and the film stands up better than your average direct-to-video horror flick.

Lullaby is an intimate cocktail bar located on the Lower East Side that promises delicious drinks without fuss. Established by Harrison Snow and Jake Hodas, its atmosphere draws inspiration from Boston bartending legend Brother Cleve’s passion for high-quality cocktails; guests can indulge in drinks such as The Gin Drink and Whiskey Drink along with wine and beer available on tap at this minimalist space with flame-finished black granite bar, custom furniture pieces from custom makers, pleated lamps from local artists as well as furnishings made by hand from its subterranean space.
