Get Wild Thoughts With Bryson Tiller, Enlist In A Water Balloon War In Deep Ellum And Step Over Cables At QuakeCon 2017.

If you’re wondering where your weekend has disappeared, it’s probably best to retrace your steps and you’ll figure it out pretty soon and easily. (Hint: probably spent it having fun at one of the events we lined up for you on our calendar.)

But a tougher nut to crack is one that police in Germany are having to deal with after a truck full of 20 tons of Nutella was stolen a few days ago. Among the other products stolen were Kinder Surprise Eggs and some other candies. All in all, thieves stole about $80,000 worth of product.

Unlike the mystery of the missing hazelnut cocoa spread, however, you’ve still got some weekend left, which means plenty of time to relax before the start of the work week and to plan our your week with this handy list of things going on in Big D this week. — Obed Manuel
