Balls to the Mall 

It's been about 40 years since the Cowtown Ballroom, at 3101 Gillham Plaza, hosted the Flying Burrito Brothers, Alice Cooper and Frank Zappa. Today, it's the site of the Cowtown Mallroom, where shoppers and looky-loos alike can find vintage clothing, antiques, records, furniture and art. Vendor liaisons Darrin and Kathi Welch occupy the first-floor space and hope to make it a weekly community event that doesn't necessarily revolve around spending money. "We are working on having nonprofit organizations and food vendors each week," Kathi Welch says. "There is also going to be live music between 2 and 3 p.m." As this blurb went to press, still available were a pack of Hank Williams Jr. playing cards, a black-light Tweety Bird poster and a disco ball. Interested vendors should e-mail cowtownmallroom@gmail.com. The Cowtown Mallroom is open to the public only on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. — Berry Anderson
