10 Awesome Things To Do in Dallas This Weekend: August 22 to 25
Usually Dallas contracts a case of the sleepies before Labor Day weekend, but not this year. No way. Unh uh.
We've got Flight of the Conchords, Dave Chappelle, Hannibal Buress and more rolling in for Sunday's Oddball Comedy Fest. The Observer makes you remember why you grew up at Brew Fest, Saturday's sampling party for folks who love beer (that's you!). And Book of Mormon spreads its twisted gospel for the next two weekends. (It's even holding a cheap ticket lottery before each show.)
There's also art, film, boobies and plenty of other ways to enjoy this perfect weekend, so let's get to it.
Click the event titles for more information and share this list with your adventure squad. I'll see you out there. (I'll be the one wearing 57 pretzel necklaces at Brew Fest.)
Book of Mormon -- The year's hottest ticket has arrived! Written by the Avenue Q/South Park team, seats at the Broadway production are still ungettable. Here in Dallas it hasn't fully sold out, so you can find last minute spots at select shows. Also, they're offering a cheap ticket lottery before each curtain. Details on that here.
Nerdlesque Strikes Back -- Watch your fanboy fantasies unfold as PacWomen, stormtroopers, Hogwarts honor roll students and more strip down to their 8-bits, just for you.
Saturday Morning Massacre -- Texas Theatre shows this Evil Dead-meets-Scooby-Doo horrorspoof for one-night only. Watch those meddling kids get theirs as they spend a night investigating a house dipped in paranormal activity.
Lollie Bombs Breast Cancer Awareness Burlesque Show -- The best way to remind the world that boobies are wonderful and need protecting is to shake them in the faces of all you meet. Or that's the gist of the Lollie Bombs method, performed at their annual ode to titty cancer research. Ladies, we salute you!
Ain't Them Bodies Saints -- Steinbeck said Montana's what a boy would think Texas was like from hearing Texans. David Lowery's new western love story redirects that thought, showing a Lone Star state that lives up to its fables. It features a romance lit for a slow burn; a botched robbery; a child; and a prison break, all in the vacant dustbowl of mid-'70s Meridian, TX.
