Let's Talk About Sax, Baby.
According to so-called experts, there are tens of millions of dollars worth of gold and other precious metals in the feces of human Americans.
A panel of scientists recently found over $13 million worth of gold, silver and platinum after sifting through the waste of just one million Americans. Just think: 353 times that many people live in this country! Of course, while it sounds like a lot, it would also stand to reason that there's probably about $13 worth of valuables in your own stool — perhaps not worth the effort in extracting.
Oh well, there's plenty of better ways to spend your time tonight, some of which also happen to be free — y'know, no poop gold required. — Cory Graves
Oral Fixation: “Writing on the Wall” at Texas Theatre
For the encore performance of this month's edition of Dallas' favorite storytelling series, a few brave souls will share tales about those times in their lives when disaster seemed all but unavoidable. Expect the poop-filled stories of a mother learning to handle her autistic child, a wife coming to grips with her husband's mental illness, an elementary school bullying incident that led one man to discover his future career, and plenty more. — CG
Moon Hooch at Dada
Moon Hooch is a pretty simple setup, just two saxophones and a drummer. Still the self-proclaimed “cave music” the trio manages to churn out is pretty incredible. Or to quote NPR's Bob Boilen, “People ask me all the time to name my favorite Tiny Desk Concert. It's my desk and I've seen almost all of the nearly 400 concerts up close. So you'd think this would be easy. Moon Hooch have made it a lot easier.” See that performance here, then catch a free set tonight at Good Records followed by a not-free set at Dada. — CG
Frozen on Ice at American Airlines Center
Frozen is back, but this time not on the screen. Here, the favorite 2013 Disney animation is live on from the Dallas Stars' home ice at the AAC. Sure, Frozen on Ice sounds a bit redundant, but it should make for fun, family-friendly evening just the same. — Lauren Rushing
Reservoir Dogs at Sundown (Free)
Four Perfect Killers. One Perfect Crime. Quentin Tarantino's breakthrough, now-classic blood-filled gangster flick returns to the big screen on Sundown's rooftop patio. — LR
Rihanna Sing-a-Long at Alamo Drafthouse
The normal Alamo rules are completely thrown out the window at these Action Pack, sing-a-long affairs.Whereas the Alamo has earned its fair share of headlines over the years for kicking out patrons for speaking during screenings, singing and dancing are not only allowed in these events, but encouraged. Fake microphones are even handed out to make patrons feel like they're truly performing their favorite songs. In short: They're kind of awesome. And the catalog of Rihanna will be celebrated this evening. — Angela Jones
Local Beer Dinner at The Libertine
You thought wine was the drink-of-choice for fancy dinners? Think again. At this five-course meal — where each dish is accompanied by a different beer from a different local Dallas brewery — The Libertine proves that beer can be just as nice. The beers will come from the following breweries: Rahr and Sons Brewing Company, Community Beer Company, Martin House Brewing Company, Lakewood Brewing Company and Audacity Brew House. In order to help you make a more informed decision before throwing down $60 on dinner, here are some reviews we did for three out of the five beers to be served: Martin House Cellarman's Reserve Single Hop IPA (score: 7/10), Lakewood Till & Toil (score: 7/10) and Community Trinity Tripel (score: 9/10). — Carly Seitz
Gloriana at Henderson Tap House
While this show doesn't actually start at 4 p.m. — the Nashville-based country outfit won't take the stage until 9 p.m. — the people over at Henderson Tap House recommend getting there right when the bar opens, as they say they're expecting a line around the block by the time of the performance. And considering Gloriana has over 423k likes on Facebook, they may be right, even if arriving five hours early does seem a bit excessive. — CS
