Friday’s Best Bets
Family Fun- Cirque Du Horror- Halloween Horor musical at the Texas theater Friday October 31st at 7:30 pm TEXAS THEATER : DALLAS TX
“A night of ghoulies, ghastlies, goblins and ghosties! Come out to the historic Texas Theater located in the Bishop Arts district of Dallas, TX. Ready yourselves for a wickedly wonderful night of music, dance and theatrical merriment. Fun for the entire family, so come in costume and prepare for a truly delightful descent into the macabre! $15 adults, $7 children and 65+, kids free under 3.”

Family fun- Spell Binding Saturdays at Reunion Tower.
One Day of Halloween is just not enough! This is Dallas we do everything bigger and better and that’s exactly how we do trick or treating. So after you hit all the neighbors bring your ninja turtles, Elsa and Doc Mcstuffins to Reunion Tower from 11-7pm with free admission to the Geo- Deck for trick or treating costumes re required for free admission.
Music For Everyone-
This Saturday Music fans get two artist form opposite ends of the musical spectrum turn up for Head banging hip hop as Yela Wolf headlines Tree’s in Deep Ellum. Then a few miles north Check out Matisyahu at the House of Blues. Known for his hasidic faith and reggae vibes Matisyahu was the one to watch in the mid 200’s and is shaping up to make a big come back.
Brunch Brunch Brunchy Brunch- I know you were expecting a more clever headline but I’m far too focused on mimosas right now to think straight. It’s officially fall and finally feels like it take advantage and try a spiked hot chocolate at your next brunch spot. My favorite would be Oddfellows in Oak Cliff and the Legendary Chicken and Waffles at Max’s Wine and Dive in uptown.
Kids Time –
Once you get your little hellions off there sugar high why not take them out to a great exhibit that will teach them the value of math and make school a little more interesting. Check out the Perot Museum of Nature and Science at Victory Park, 2201 N. Field St. Dallas,TX 75201. Now through January 4th you can visit this exhibit. Sunday’s you can pop in from 12-5pm $15 for kids $21 for adults. Perotmuseum.org.
“The exhibition brings to life the real math behind what kids love most: video games, sports, fashion, music and robotics. Through nearly 40 unique, interactive experiences, the bilingual exhibition takes math from its native form into the applied worlds of design, engineering, technology and science.”
