Feel An Unlikely Force With BNQT At The Granada, Try Some Practical Magic At Alamo Drafthouse Cedars And Get Internet Famous With Maxo Kream And Trill Sammy.

And so the weekend comes to its conclusion…

You know what else came to a conclusion? Our series about why the State Fair of Texas sucks! That’s right. You won’t have to suffer through boring facts and statistics and truth anymore — well, not so many State Fair facts for now at least. We’ll still bring you all the truth you can handle.

In our last post of the series, we tackled the State Fair’s unwillingness change and the support it gets from Fair traditionalists who are somehow able to overlook the aforementioned stats and facts about the State Fair’s tight-lipped nature and potentially overstated value to the City of Dallas. It was fun to write all that and we hope you learned something along the way.

But now that the Fair has closed, you can head back out on the town without having to worry about State Fair crowds clogging up the streets or DART system or Deep Ellum and whatnot. Might we suggest heading out to one of these cool happenings to celebrate the end of the State Fair? — Obed Manuel
