Eleven Awesome Things To Do In Dallas This Weekend, November 1 to 5
Grab that Visine and scrub out your eyeballs, because Dallas is ripe for ocular overload. We've got a photography slideshow and potluck dinner at The Power Station, the wonkiest burlesque in the US of A at Lakewood Theater, Richard Lewis looking concerned at the Addison Improv and yeah, the original Red Dawn in 35mm at Texas Theatre. WOLVERINES!
Be a doll and share this list with your adventure gang, make a plan and click those event titles for more information. Then, protect our native soil against Soviet invaders while wearing a letter jacket. I'll see you out there (I'll be the one awkwardly hovering over a radiator).

Richard Lewis -- He's the king of self-loathing and an example of enthusiasm, curbed. Catch him from Thursday through Sunday at the Addison Improv: He's on his Tracks of my Fears tour.
Busch-Whacked 2012 Mud Run -- This adventure run isn't your standard-issue race. It's a barbed wire slithering, sloppy mud pit crawling feat of endurance, and it goes on from 4 to 10 p.m. on Thursday at the Texas Motor Speedway. (All of your mire-rich sliding benefits the Armed Forces Foundation.)
AltCar Expo Texas -- Welcome to the future, dude. This assemblage of alternative fuel vehicles looks amazing. You'll see the newest innovations in renewable energy cars, and even get to test drive them. Do any run on Hot Cheetos and Takis? You'll have to go to find out. It's free.
It runs on unicorn tears.
Viva Dallas Burlesque! Presents Dirty Politics -- Those saucy dames are closing the curtain on the voting room and embracing those moments you've either loved or hated from elections past in this celebration of skin and wonk. You'll see Russia from your house! You'll respect Michelle Obama for her choice to purchase nipple tassels from J. Crew, rather than from a more expensive designer. And by the night's end, you'll wish you were in all of their oval offices -- high hat, please.
