13 Awesome Things To Do in Dallas this Weekend, Feb 27 - March 2
Have you ever been to an art show and asked yourself, is this guy shitting me? At Joshua Goode's exhibit that opens at RO2 Art this weekend, the answer is yes. Ostensibly, Artifacts from the Burial Site of the Unicorn T-Rex contains Goode's findings from a dig in Germany, where he discovered an ancient civilization of pygmies and domesticated dinosaurs. But you don't really believe that ... do you?
The Quake at Three Links
Start your weekend early with the ladies of The Quake. This burlesque and variety show promises "earth shaking shimmies, mind blowing illusions and tunes to make you quiver and quake." Think Golden Era Vegas.
For your second throwback event of Thursday night, put on your dancing shoes and head to The Kessler for an evening of two-steps, one-steps, fox trots and waltzes. The Singapore Slingers are a band that pays tribute to the early 20th century. And boy, they've got that swing.
Dirty, Filthy Diamonds
If you attended Artopia, you already know what's up. Danielle Georgiou Dance Group's newest show opens this weekend at the Margo Jones Theatre. If immersive performance art makes you nervous, that's not an excuse to miss this one. We can throw back a few shots at Amsterdam Bar first.
Love, Death + the Desert
In the fabric of Deep Ellum, Kettle Art Gallery is spot you need to know. Thursday night, swing by the opening reception for the newest exhibition featuring new works by Brad Albright, Brian Crawford, and Justin Clumpner. The show explores the artists' understanding of conflict, loss and spirituality.
Mardi Gras in Denton
Fat Tuesday might be the best holiday around. You eat too much, you drink too much, you do whatever else you want and you do it too much. And Denton knows how to party. The city is closing Walnut Street and letting people dance in the streets, NOLA style. The party starts at 5 p.m. and officially ends at 11 p.m. but we'll just find somewhere else to keep drinking. After all, nothing exceeds like excess.
He doesn't throw a magic show often, but when he does you don't want to miss it. The most interesting man in Expo Park, Confetti Eddie, opens his doors this Friday for a seductive night of illusions and magic. If you're one of the few lucky ticket holders, you're in for an evening you won't soon forget.
For the first time ever, the North Texas Irish Festival is allowing dogs through the gates of Fair Park. Just make sure you don't lose your pooch after you've had too much hooch. Also, Celtic dancing, music, and did we mention beer? Get in for free from 6-7 p.m. on Friday and $10 after that. Saturday it's $20; Sunday it's $15.
