Relive High School With All Time Low, Peek Into Your Future At A Psychic Fair And 30 Other Things To Do In And Around Dallas This Weekend.

Those of you who are about to have a four-day weekend? We salute you. As for the rest of you? Well, uh, we’re not really sure what to tell you.

Forbes brought up the idea of a midweek Fourth of July hurting business back in 2012 when our country’s birthday fell on a Wednesday and it found that consumers may be less likely to spend on party supplies since they can’t party that hard if they have to be at work the next day.

While there may be some truth to that, we’re not going to underestimate Dallas’ ability to party over these next few days. So, even if you have work Monday, we say it’s time to hang loose. To that end, as we always do, we’ve compiled a list of ongoings to get you through the weekend.

Just remember: Stay safe and smart out there. — Obed Manuel
