Double Features and Dancing in the Streets!

Hello wonderful people! I hope you are having a great week, and that the first week of school hasn’t been to rough on your, your family, or your morning drive to work. This week some great stage shows are opening, there’s a cat video festival, and Coyote Drive-In is making us all nostalgic with their amazing throwback double features.

As always, if you know about an event I’ve missed please share the info in the comments, and if you have a future event you’d like to see listed, PM me the details.  Also, check The Ongoing Events page and The Kid List page for more ideas on how to have fun this week in DFW!
