Let City And Colour Soothe Your Soul, Jam With Vandoliers In Fort Worth, Set It Off With Bryson Tiller And 50 Other Things To Do This Weekend.

There’s plenty to do this weekend, but one event in particular will have the eyes of the nation and all of the sports world.

Millions will tune in Saturday night when the undefeated Floyd Mayweather Jr. takes on UFC’s Conor McGregor. The two fighters will make millions and we mean millions of dollars that night.

But we’ve put together a handy list of places in Dallas that will be showing the fight without a cover charge. Sure, you’ll probably spend a bit more on food and drinks here, but at least you’ll be spending money on yourself and having a good time instead of putting more money in the pockets of these two already-rich hombres.

Waiting for that fight is one way to spend the weekend, but there’s still Friday, most of Saturday and Sunday to figure out. Worry not, however, as we’ve got you covered on how to kill time waiting for the big fight or, if that’s not your thing at all, there are plenty of things on this list to keep you busy through the weekend. — Obed Manuel


Bryson Tiller at The Bomb Factory
Bryson Tiller’s ascent to stardom happened pretty quick. The R&B singer-songwriter from Kentucky’s debut Trapsoul album debuted at No. 11 on the Billboard charts and helped him garner a large and rabid fan base. Tiller’s music is reminiscent of other contemporary singers that mix elements of rap music, but opt to sing it instead, like PartyNextDoor and Ty Dolla $ign. — H. Drew Blackburn
