What’s Cookin’ in The Cliff This Weekend?
Zang! (That’s the Oak Cliff version of “Dang!”) There is a ton of fun going on this weekend. Let’s take these chronologically.
Tonight, you have the rare opportunity to hear the Dallas Symphony Orchestra without crossing the Trinity River. As part of its “DSO on the Go” series, the heralded group will perform at 7:30 this evening at Cliff Temple Baptist Church.
The Bishop Arts Theatre Center will host three performances of Ain’t This Some Sh*t. This “timely new comedy about nuns and chicken sandwiches with lots of dance music” was written and directed by my fellow Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts graduate Jonathan Norton.
On Saturday morning, your kids can bounce in a bounce house, check out a police helicopter, and meet McGruff the Crime Dog at Mountain View College’s Public Safety and Recycling Fair.
If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to build a Dutch-style cargo bike, Bike Friendly Oak Cliff has arranged for Adamson High School to host a two-day workshop this weekend.
Speaking of two-day events, the craftiest creatures in all the land will fill the Bishop Arts District on Saturday and Sunday for the Urban Street Bazaar.
For even more artisans and designers — not to mention musicians, food trucks, and a pop-up dog park — check out the Elmwood Street Fair.
And we wrap up with the biggest event of the weekend, the Old Oak Cliff Conservation League Fall Home Tour. This is the league’s big fundraiser, the one that makes all of those grants to various neighborhoods possible. So rest assured that your voyeuristic trips through strangers’ houses will be for a worthy cause.
