Sunday, March 23
Dallas Rock 'n' Roll Marathon
I'll just assume you're a better person than me. You're probably nicer. You're probably in better shape. You're probably running the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon on Sunday. I'll be trapped in my apartment drinking bloody marys, waving to you as you run by. You look good in those short shorts, Dallas. Last minute registration is $175 and the race starts at City Hall Plaza at 8 a.m. Drinking starts at my apartment shortly thereafter.
Alessio Bax Recital
One of the great musicians living among you is Alessio Bax. A world-renowned pianist, he's a visiting professor at Southern Methodist University, which is where he will tickle the keys Sunday. It's the same program he'll play at Lincoln Center next week, so your ears will be lucky to hear it. Tickets start at $7 and are available by calling 214-768-2787.
