Jam Out At Fortress Festival In Fort Worth, Break The Law With Judas Priest At The Bomb Factory And Eat All The Tacos At Taco Libre At The Dallas Farmers Market.

The adult film actress who is currently embroiled in a scandal with President Donald Trump is in town this weekend.

Stormy Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, will perform at Bucks Wild Fort Worth and Dallas. She’ll first take the stage tonight in Fort Worth and then close out her Make America Horny Again Tour in Dallas Saturday night.

Think of her tour what you will, but one industry expert we spoke to said Daniels could make upwards of $20,000 this weekend. He told us it’s pretty much the smartest thing she can be doing at this point in her career.

Still, the strip club isn’t for everyone. So after you head out to watch Infinity War, you should probably hit up one of the following weekend events. Be safe out there, Dallas. — Obed Manuel
