What’s Cookin’ in The Cliff This Weekend?
Although the weather has not quite gotten the memo yet, we are officially in the holiday season. It’s probably safe to say that most of the events we post from now till the end of the year will be holiday related, so we hope you’re as fine with that as we are.
If you’d like to attend a fancy party that celebrates the very best of Oak Cliff, head to the Bishop Arts Theatre Center tonight at 5 p.m. for their annual awards presentation. State representative Rafael Anchia is the master of ceremony, and many of Oak Cliff’s finest will be in attendance.
If you like rockabilly music, you may want to check out Fort Worth’s very own, Devin Leigh, He’s performing at 7 p.m. tonight at Bar Belmont, so head there for drinks and some of the liveliest guitar music around.
A Texas legend, Joe Ely has been called “a pioneer of alternative country music.” With a career that’s spanned four decades, he’s one solid performer. Head to the Kessler Theater to hear him perform at 8 p.m. tonight. Dan Dyer opens the show.
You’ve probably seen Scarface a few hundred (thousand) times, but have you ever seen it on 35MM film? Didn’t think so. In honor of it’s 29th birthday, the Texas Theatre is showing it tonight at 8 p.m., Saturday at 4:30 p.m., and Sunday at 5 p.m.

Join the Kessler Neighbor’s United on Saturday for their annual “Holiday Lights in Kessler Park” event and tree lighting. Meet them at 5:30 p.m. on the street island at 1415 W. Colorado Boulevard at Lausanne Avenue.
You may have already read my cover story on today’s paper about Ray Switzer and the Winnetka Heights Neighborhood Association’s holiday home tour. If you haven’t yet, you should.

Join them for the tour at noon on Saturday, followed by their holiday party at 7 p.m.
