Weekend Guide: Women's March Edition
The Weekend Guide is generally an opportunity to highlight silly events centered around drinking and food. Maybe there’s some music or art as well (though typically at least wine comes into play there, too.) But the big event this weekend is the third annual Dallas Women’s March through downtown on Sunday. Maybe not the lightest event going on — that would be the cat rock concert on Thursday — but it’s certainly the most important. So, if you can, check it out.
Thousands of North Texans have turned out the past two years for the Dallas Women’s March. They’ll once again head through downtown Dallas to city hall where public speakers will lead the crowd in finding “common ground from which to organize, advocate and respond to the most pressing issues of the day” like immigration, reproductive rights and gun violence. It’s going to be bitterly cold, so dress heavy and get ready to march.
Community turns six this Saturday and to celebrate, the brewery is unleashing more than 60 beers. With multiple beer stations around the brewery plus live music, food trucks and more, this party is craft beer heaven. Grab a VIP ticket and get in early (and get a shirt that’ll show your beer nerdiness off in proper style).
We don’t cover Fort Worth very often, but when the rodeo comes to town, we’d be remiss to ignore it. The “All Western Parade” on Saturday offers a great introduction to three weeks of roping, riding and rodeo out west. Get your tickets and head to Cowtown.
Here’s an event to make you feel old: a six-hour bar crawl through Uptown. Oh, and you have to wear a onesie. This one kicks off at Clutch at 4 PM and has nine stops including Renfields, BBC and Playground. If you can make it to 10 PM, there’s an official afterparty at Concrete Cowboy and your prize is a free shot. No way that could go wrong! (Last week, this spot was occupied by a Dave Eggers appearance at the DMA. Really something for everybody on the Weekend Guide.)
If you’re a cat person, boy, is this the event for you. ““The Amazing Acro-cats Featuring Tuna and the Rock Cats are a troupe of touring performing house cats. This one-of-a-kind, two-hour-long purrformance features talented domesticated house cats roll on balls, ride skateboards, jump through hoops, and more!” It wraps up with a performance by Tuna and the Rock Cats. Let’s see dogs keep rhythm on the drums. They can’t!
