Free Giveaway: Five Tickets (With Guest Passes) to D‘s World Bazaar on July 17

D is hosting a fancy schmancy party with Bombay Sapphire called the World Bazaar on Tuesday, July 17 at 6 p.m. Executive Chef Tre Wilcox from Marquee Grill Village Marquee – Texas Grill & Bar is preparing international dishes and cocktails for this festive food pairing event. Do you want to go? Would you like to see Mr. Wilcox in person instead of through photographs all the time? (Update: Wilcox will be in Italy. You’ll have to cross the Atlantic to see him.) It’s your lucky day, amigos y amigas. We’re giving away five tickets (each ticket includes a guest pass) to the World Bazaar. Since it’s a bazaar, all you have to do is write a nice comment down below on the most bizarre thing you’ve ever seen in order to be in the running. (Keep it clean! And use a real email address if you want to win.) We’ll pick random winners on Wednesday, July 11, at 3 p.m. and send you an email with instructions if you’re one of the lucky five.

    I use to live in boulder, Colorado and I was running on a trail and saw a woman rollerblading with her pet parrot. The parrot was on a leash and it was flying alongside of her. I guess that’s a good way to get exercise for your parrot!

    The movie yellow submarine…. gives me a headache just thinking about it!

    In Cartegena, Colombia, many years ago while on a summer school trip, I found the traffic lights to be bizarre. The lights would change from red to yellow to green instead of the usual way of green to yellow to red. The stopped cars, upon seeing the yellow light, would start revving their engines in anticipation of the green light and jump into the intersection as quickly as possible. It was bizarre.

    On my last trip to Asia, a family of 5 riding along in a 2-wheel “scooter” – Dad driving, 5-6 year old boy standing in front of him. Mom behind Dad carrying a 1 year old baby, and sandwiched between Mom and Dad was another kid. Makes our “need” to have trucks and SUVs seem extravagant.

    Birds nesting in the wreath at my front door…however the neighbors cat.. well need i say more…BAD KITTY!!!!

    I once looked in the mirror while I was smiling. Only half of my face smiled. It was bizarre. The doctor told me it was temporary facial paralysis from airborne bacteria.

    My friends and family used my temporary facial paralysis as a source of their entertainment. Everyone wanted to see the girl with a half-working face spill water all over herself while struggling to drink. Friends I hadn’t seen all summer met me out for dinner, made sure we had a lot to laugh about, and paid extra, close attention to me whenever anyone would say something funny–just so they could see my half smile. It was bizarre.

    I heard of this civilization where animals do nothing but sleep, eat, and poop, and humans feed them on command and clean up after them like kings. I believe the animals were called “dogs”. How bizarre, how bizarre.

    The most bizarre and awesome thing I have ever seen was at a bar when a approximately 6’2″ drunk guy was making fun and bullying a maybe around 3’10” dwarf. The little guy, all in a split second, jumped onto a chair next to the big guy, jumped up off it and in mid-air punched the big guy on the chin knocking him out cold. Everyone cheered.

    The rain in July!

    When I was driving to school today, I stopped at a red light. The driver in the car next to me lifted a trumpet from his lap and started playing something during the wait! And then when the light turned green, he put it down to start driving again…BIZARRE!

    Chunks of snake in a dish for dinner

    I lived in pre-Katrina New Orleans for 6 years so i have lots of strange and bizarre stories too racey for this post. However, i found this next very weird at the time. I love to play golf, so when i first moved there, i had lots of fun locating and playing at all the local golf courses, no how obscure and out of the way the course was. So, one morning, i teed off for the round behind a group of five players. On a dog-leg right hole, the five guys all hit their ball down the right side if the fairway, drive up to their ball hit again and go on with no excitement. Not being familiar with the course, I followed those guys example down the right side and hit my ball within a few feet if where most of their ball’s landed. When i walked up to my ball, there was an 8 FOOT ALLIGATOR less than five feet away. I wasmore than a little freaked out but those guys in front of me didn’t even react to it. It even phase them

    I work at a hospital near downtown Dallas, so I get to see bazaar things on a daily basis. Would love to go to this event!

  • Bex

    Sorry the 1st comment by me the email address was wrong. How bazaar!! :) this one should have the right one.

  • michelle troutt

    I saw a guy that took his dead cat and had it stuffed and turned it into a remote control for his tv….grossness!!!

  • Shab

    At a nice restaurant in Danga Bay in Johor Bahru, Malayasia, after several courses were served from what we had picked out from the fresh tanks, the lobster sashimi course came. It was so fresh it was served in the scooped out middle of the lobster, whose carcass was still moving and twitching…presumably for our entertainment! The still wriggling octopi were slimier and by far harder to get down, but the lobster course won for being the most bizarre.

  • Aminah

    The most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen is a a homeless man trying to take someone’s purse and then getting chased with a large stick. Crazy….

  • Teresa Vaquera

    In our neighborhood, there was a PEACOCK roaming around and I looked out the window and people were across the street pointing to my house and my dogs were barking and I was wondering what was going on. I went outside and there was a PEACOCK on our ROOF.. LOL! Beautiful Peacock..

  • Lindsey

    Tranny prostitute at the Walgreens on Oak Lawn and Cedar Springs buying panty hose.

  • Lauren B

    A 5-piece mariachi band serenaded me on the NYC subway once. It was AWESOME, but totally bizarre and unexpected outside of a crappy chain tex-mex restaurant.

  • Crystal

    A guy with a machette burning trash in an abandoned homes driveway. Later he was drinking a 40 on that homes front porch.

  • Monica

    Midget wrestling was pretty bizarre

  • Kelly Hunter

    The most bizarre thing I’ve ever seen is a group of middle aged men playing NAKED FRISBEE in the Englischer Garten in Munich. Not one I hope to see again.

  • Corey

    Algiers, Algeria. Walking down the street after prayers and dinner during Ramadan, the door of a bar was open. Peering in (can’t go in since I’m a female), I see all the men smoking like chimneys which is not bizarre. But the old man who had a headless, nude female mannequin on his lap was weird. And seeing him stroke “her” thigh and leer at me was downright freaky!

  • Bev Garvin

    This may possibly be THE most bizarre thing I’ve seen in a while, it’s a weird pinkish sea creature found along the coast in Japan. A bunch of them were on a dune and scattered at an unexpectedly fast pace (even though they don’t have legs). Then they found another one and flipped it over…

    I don’t want to spoil it, watch it for yourself and tell me what you think! Maybe Teiich Sakurai can tell us what it is? The video has over 4 million views

    I once saw a chicken play the piano at the I.Q. Zoo in Hot Springs, Arkansas. It was wearing a purple glittery outfit.
