14 Awesome Things to Do in Dallas This Weekend, January 10 to 13
Mike Birbiglia at the Winspear -- Comedian Mike Birbiglia has conquered nearly every available form of media from repeat segments on "This American Life" to stand-up. Books (His effort made it to the bestseller list), to stage and even film as his one-man show Sleepwalk with Me was converted into a hit cinema release. He's touring with his new off-Broadway one-man production My Girlfriend's Boyfriend and you only have one chance to see it. WARNING: Reviews have mentioned it's caused spontaneous wedding proposals.
The Outsiders Inn -- Everything about this party is amazing: You can explore the retrofitted Warby Parker road trip school bus (its interior has been designed to resemble a sexy professor's office, wood paneling and all) at The Old Bike Shop, a fully operational motorcycle repair shop in the warehouse district. It's an Outsider's themed House of Plates project, so there's boot shining onsite, food and drinks by Bolsa, a bunch of folks in letterman's jackets telling each other to "stay gold," a performance by Smile Smile and a DJ set by JT Donaldson. This bash runs from 7 to 10 and will be off many chains, as the kids (don't) say.
OLD at Ochre House -- Our favorite outsider playwright has put together another production for his tiny, Fair Park space. This one, titled OLD, is a vaudeville tragedy in two acts, centered around an old pair of scoundrels. Their adventures involve exploring a seedy cultural underbelly -- a group that the show's author Matthew Posey is already pleasantly versed in.
ART! So Much ART! -- It's a big night for season openers around the city. Check back with Mixmaster for a more comprehensive guide. It'll be up by Friday morning. For now, click this here title and read about four of our favorites happening over in the Design District.
Soiree Boutique Bridal Show -- I'm not a "wedding girl" by any means. Elvis in Vegas sounds great to me. But that's exactly why a show as massive as this one is appealing -- if you're someone's Maid of Honor in 2013, take that lady here. You can whittle down those planning hours by seeing everything in one place on one day. It's efficient and free.
Naked DART Ride -- Naked subway rides were started by the New York-based troupe, Improv Everywhere. Then, people across the country demanded their own opportunity to drop drawer and hop aboard public transport. So, you know: that's happening now. Dallas gets in the mix on Sunday for a pantless tour of Dallas on DART. Join them, or just find out where they'll be so you can avoid looking at all that leg cheese.
