What’s Cookin’ In The Cliff This Weekend?
If you have kiddos, this weekend has activities to boot for them. The Dallas Police Department is hosting “Chief On The Beat,” a crime prevention safety and health fair at Grace Temple Baptist Church on Sat. from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Not only will your kids (and you) learn important crime- and fire-prevention tactics, there will be free health screenings, and, of course, plenty of games, activities, and sports.
Also for the tots … June is the perfect time to get that summer-reading plan started. Head to the North Oak Cliff Library for “Tailwagging Tutors” on Sat. at 11 a.m. Your kids will be pumped about reading when they realize they’re reciting their fave stories to oh-so-adorable pooches. Also at the North Oak Cliff Library at 11 a.m. on Saturday is Mayor Rawling’s Summer Reading Program Kick-Off Party. Kids who sign up for the program will receive a super-cool prize; plus, there will be arts and crafts, face painting, balloon animals, and games.
As for the adults? Not to worry. The Winnetka Heights Neighborhood Association is hosting a wine tasting soirée Sat. evening, beginning at 7:30 (at 322 S. Rosemont Ave.). The catch phrase? “Winnetka Heights Winos Are Back!” Sounds like my kind of shindig. Kings Highway Conservation District is hosting its First Friday party Fri. evening at 6 at Nova. And if you’re into the art scene, don’t miss Might Fine Arts’ last day of Glenn Downing’s “Showdown” on Sun. afternoon.
The music: Catch Nicholas Altobelli at 7 on Fri. night at Bar Belmont and City Folk at Eno’s at 9. The Kessler will host Unknown Hinson at 8:30 on Sat. night and Kat Edmonson at 8:30 on Sun. night.
And, a few weekend reminders: If you happen to see a “former” Adamson High School senior, give ’em a huge congrats. Adamson’s graduation ceremony is on Sat. at 7 p.m. at the Ellis Davis Field House. And don’t forget: If you’re applying for a neighborhood grant from the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League, all applications are due today!
