Be One Of The Cool Kids With Echosmith At Granada Theater, Raise Your Glass With P!nk At American Airlines Center And Kick Off The 2018 Dallas International Film Festival.

As we prepare to start another week, some of you out there might be considering a career switch.

No, we’re not talking about that illegal kind of stuff. We’re talking about — wait for it — snakes! That’s what 21-year-old Cameron DeFrances thought would be a good product to sell. He was found out by the U.S. Fish and Wild Life Service after the agency found posts of his on social media in which he was selling venomous snakes.

DeFrances was reported, arrested and charged with multiple counts of illegal possession of wild animals and reckless endangerment. After posting $1,000 bail, he was freed but has a court date in May.

So if you’re not sure what switch you want to make, maybe take this week to think about it some more. And if your brainstorming sessions get a bit too intense and you find yourself needing to blow off some steam, then consider heading out to one of the events listed below.
