13 Awesome Things To Do This Weekend, October 25 to 28
Dallas could explode this weekend, there's that much going on. Crazy Halloween parties are cropping up at all of your favorite bars, there's a theater performance in a wrestling ring, poster art in a movie theater and auditions for MasterChef.
It's the final weekend of Lucian Freud: Portraits.
To help you with your highly refined party strategizing, I've whipped up two lists. This one focuses on all of the great stuff happening around town that isn't Halloween related, and THIS ONE is a list of 20 Great Halloween Parties. Use 'em to assemble the Best Weekend Ever.
Go ahead and click on the event titles for more information and share these lists with your adventure gang. I'll see you out there. (I'll be the one in a figure-four leg lock.)
Sarah Jaffe and DJ Empty Cylinder at Patio Sessions -- The Arts District is a full-frontal assault of freebie fun this weekend, and this Jaffe performance is the icing on the cake.
NYLO Plano at Legacy Shows Pretty in Pink -- In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the NYLO Plano has been doing Thursday night outdoor screenings. This week you get a dose of nostalgia and a whole lotta Ducky when they show Pretty in Pink at sunset. The movie is free, and $2 from each pink cocktail purchased goes to the Bridge Breast Network.
Elegant Ghost and The Scar Opening Night -- As you age, your perception of Halloween shifts. You see things more philosophically, and it's in that exploration of death's abyss that your fears are triggered. What if you couldn't cross over? It's a terrifying concept being explored in two, back-to-back stage performances at Teatro Dallas. The first is Elegant Ghost, a dance production by the Danielle Georgiou Dance Group which focuses on a handful of tortured spirits, roughed up in their transition to the next realm. The next is The Scar, which weaves a surface tale of friendship and deceit under the Pinochet regime.
Found Magazine Event at UT Arlington -- While it's rad that this is going on at UT Arlington on Friday, if you can't make it due to last minute costume designing, work and/or general laziness, don't worry. Davy and Peter Rothbart are scheduled to do a much bigger show at Texas Theatre next month, and we'll keep you posted on that.
