If You Don’t Like It, Leave.
If you’ve got a green screen, some paper clips and a bed sheet, you can be like this awesome granny and make a kickass home vid that looks like you’re flying through the mountains in a cool wingsuit.
But where are you going to find paper clips at this hour?
Which means you’ll have to settle for Plan B – leaving the house. Lucky for you we’ve got many suggestions on that front, none of which involves crafts. — Cory Graves
American Freedom Tour at Sheraton Dallas Hotel
The American Freedom Tour will provide locals a chance to hear from conservative media personalities Tomi Lahren and Duck Dynasty star Willie Robertson, along with Dave Martin (listed as “your success coach” on the event page), and author/TV host April Osteen Simons. You’ll also see “Presidential Tribute Artist” John Morgan, who impersonates George W. Bush. (Seriously. Someone still does that.)

Commerce Street Bike Lane Meeting at The Bomb Factory
In 2011, a survey conducted by the City of Dallas found that close to 80 percent of its citizens said they would bike more if Dallas had more off-street bike trails. And while the city has been busy adding to its trail system these last three years — and plans to keep doing so, to the tune of even opening a bike trail system that will make it possible to bike all the way to Fort Worth on an off-street trail within the next few years — there’s still quite a ways for the region to go when it comes to bike safety. In the roughly 386 square miles that make up the Dallas city limits, there are still fewer than 150 miles of buffered bike lanes, cycle tracks and multi-use pathways to be found. If you’d like to see that change, here’s a spot to make your voice heard. — CG
