Tasha’s To Do List: August 9
If you thought grackles were freaky…check these birds out. Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” will be scaring north Texans tonight at the Palace Theatre in Grapevine. The 1963 movie is about some chick who followed a guy she liked to a small north California town that had an issue with rabid birds. The lesson in all this? Don’t go to California and don’t stalk guys, ladies! Get more info by clicking on the link below.
If you want more old school entertainment…check out Retro Media Fridays tonight at Half Priced Books in Arlington. By retro, I mean LPs (that’s long playing records or albums kiddos), cassette tapes, 8 tracks, VHS tapes and Laser Discs. Get more details by clicking on the link above.
SEA LIFE Aquarium Grapevine is celebrating Discovery Channel’s Shark Week with Sharks After Dark: Shark Week Edition. You’ll see over 5,000 sea creatures at SEA LIFE Aquarium. Get more details by clicking on the link above.
You’re in Texas…so you need to get that whole Wild West thing down when you whip up a pot of grub. Western Inspiration at the Central Market Cooking School this evening won’t involve grub, per se…but it will involve Tomato, Avocado & Roasted Corn Salad; Savory Stuffed Flank Steak; Squash Medley with Herbs;…you get the idea. Get more details by clicking on the link above.
Tomorrow night at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History in Fort Worth….you can take part in a Star Party! There will be plenty of telescopes for viewing and even more astronomy buffs to help you navigate your way through the skies. Star Parties are held once a month and in the Museum’s South Parking Lot…and it is free….which makes me love it even more. Get more details by clicking on the link above.
If you are tired of going to Walmart every weekend to buy ammo and finding that they are all out…again…check out this weekend’s Burleson Gun Show. Guns, knives, sporting supplies…you do know that dove season will be here before you know it. Get more details by clicking on the link above.
If you wanna be a cowboy…it is as easy as getting into the SUV and driving over to Lake Mineral Wells State Park tomorrow night for the Cowboy Campfire. They say it is a peaceful evening of cowboy music so my guess is that you won’t be hearing any of Trace Adkins “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” or any Big and Rich “Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy”. You will hear acoustic guitar, poetry and stories while sitting in your authentic cowboy lawn chair. Get more info by clicking on the link above.
Tomorrow night’s “Palette to Palate” event at the Frontiers of Flight Museum in Dallas is an annual fundraising event to benefit disadvantaged children in the Dallas/Fort Worth area through Love for Kids. Tonight will involve fine art, hors d’oeuvres, desserts, and other amazing culinary treats from some of your favorite local restaurants. Get more info by clicking on the link above.
In celebration of the birthday of the Master of Suspense, Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub & Grill presents Hitchcock Sundays throughout August. You’ll enjoy Hitchcock’s greatest… The Birds, Psycho, Rear Window and The Man Who Knew Too Much. It’s all good and it’s all free including the popcorn. Get more info by clicking on the link above.
There is a festival going on this weekend in downtown Dallas and I don’t want you to be scared away by the list of festivities. You know, toss the sausage, sausage race, bobbing for sausage. It can be a little frightening to be perfectly honest. But you are a dude and you can handle it. This weekend’s Sausage Fest promises to be a Celebration of summer, BBQ-ing & things dudes dig. Like the crowning of Ms. Sausage Fest 2013. In this pageant, nobody cares what the chicks think about current events. All they care about is how the babes “currently” look in that bikini. Get more info by clicking on the link above.
If chocolate and cheese are the staples of your diet…I commend you. And I’ll be joining you for the Urge for Chocolate and Cheese Tour tomorrow evening with Dallas by Chocolate. Satisfy your passion for all things chocolate and cheese on this irresistible tour, featuring some of the top local chocolate finds: Scardello Artisan Cheese, Great One Cookie Company, CocoAndre, Trailercakes and Dude, Sweet Chocolate. Get more info by clicking on the link above.
Don’t lie. When the tunes “Love is Like Oxygen” and “The Things We Do for Love” come on the radio…you blare that thing. Tomorrow night, you can get your 70’s fill with Smooth Seventies Night at Opening Bell Coffee in Dallas. Pay tribute to some of the most beloved, yet relatively forgotten artists of the 1970’s…all performed by some of Dallas’ finest musicians. Check it…you’ll hear stuff from Firefall, Bread, Christopher Cross, Jim Croce. Just hearing those names makes me want to macramé a pot plant holder. Get more info by clicking on the link above.
