14 Awesome Things to Do in Dallas this Weekend, May 16 to 19

This could be you at Strokers on Saturday!

William Shatner is back as a special Dallas Comic Con guest -- just another excuse for you to dive into three days comic book digging, celebrity appearances and costume one-upmanship. There's also a fundraiser at a biker bar, a beer pong battle suitable for straight-edgers, and one downright exciting day of art. Brace yourself, and set your phasers to stunning, because it's The Weekend.

Share this list with your gang and click on event titles for more information. I'll see you out there. (I'll be the one serenading Shatner.)

Experimental Live Couch Session Art Discussion at CentralTrak -- This is one of the oddest and most intriguing art projects of ...ever, maybe? Photographer Denise Prince spent several years putting together her "Missoni" collection, currently on display at CentralTrak. It's intriguing work that deconstructs a fashion campaign through unconventional muses, including one dressed up human corpse. A-aa-a-nd here's where things get weird: Rather than presenting her own artist talk, she's flying in her analyst, Charles Merward, from Los Angeles to give a live couch session regarding the work. She'll sit silently as it occurs.

A Way With Words -- You know 'em. You love 'em. You're scared to speak slang around 'em. It's Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett, live at the Lakewood Theatre! Get your geek on, word nerds. All ticket sales benefit Aberg Center for Literacy.

THRWD Issue 3 Release Party -- If you aren't hip to THRWD Magazine yet, Dallas' newest underground art/fashion/music publication, tonight is your chance for reputation redemption. Pick up a copy of Issue Three, knock back a few drinks, and drop it all the way down at the Gin Mill. There's no cover, so buy a thing.
