What’s Cookin’ in The Cliff This Weekend?
If you’re like us and have the day off, you may want to head to the Bishop Arts Theatre Center this morning at 10 a.m. to see their Black History Month production – Audacity: A Celebration of American History. The program will highlight the contributions of many famous African-Americans, including Ella Fitzgerald, Maya Angelou, and Langston Hughes. If you can’t make it today, there’s another show at 3 p.m. on Saturday.
More weekend fun after the jump!
If you’d like to get a little gambling in but aren’t up for the drive to the border, head to Bishop Dunne Catholic School at 6 p.m. on Saturday for their Casino Night fundraiser. Even if you don’t win big, you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you helped support the education of our future leaders, so it sounds like you’ll still come out ahead.
Booker T. Washington Highschool for the Performing and Visual Arts, our managing editor’s alma mater, is hosting their “Art in the Heart of the City Gala” at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday at Eddie Deen’s Ranch.
If you’re like me and are fascinated by the world of burlesque, head to the Kessler Theater at 8 p.m. on Saturday for their “Pretty Things Peep Show,” an event that’s “part burlesque show, part carnival freak show, part psychotic circus, and a bawdy celebration of the bizarre.” With a contortionist, sword swallower, chainsaw juggler, and plenty of pretty ladies on the bill, how could you go wrong?
Join Bike Friendly Oak Cliff on Sunday at 1 p.m. for what sounds like a great (albeit potentially dangerous) pairing – bicycles and beers. The Bicycle Brewery Tasting Tour will kick off at Klyde Warren Park and head to the new Community Brewery and Four Corners Brewery.
