Hi folks!  Here is your slightly belated list, but don’t worry, there’s plenty still to do!  And as of this moment it looks like there are still tickets for the Perot Museum’s Social Science next week, which usually sells out well in advance, so get on those quick!

As always, if you know about an event I’ve missed, please feel free to share it in the comments below! Don’t forget to check the Ongoing Events listings as well, plus The Kid List for child-centric fun!
