Keep Calm. Go Stars.
Nary a day goes by that we don't pick up a paper and learn that Florida Man has managed to get himself into yet another wild predicament. You can always count on him to be making all kinds of bad decisions.
Like just the other day when he decided to keep an endangered hawk for a pet, or when he decided to try and give it a goodbye kiss on the beak before being made to set it free. At least he's got that nice chunk of missing lip by which to remember his former feathered friend.
Speaking of things you can count on, you can always be sure there's something worth doing in Dallas on any given night. You can also count on the fact that we'll be here every morning telling you about it. — Cory Graves
Chive Night at American Airlines Center
Cowtown Chive is a local group of people that all share a similar interest in The Chive, the popular humor/photo website. They're meeting up to cheer on the Dallas Stars as they take on the Calgary Flames. A portion of the ticket sales will be donated to Chive charities and the ticket purchase includes domestic wine and beer pregame. Regardless, you should try to go anyway, because the Stars are actually doing really well this season. — Paul Wedding
SSTD, Sleep Colony, Seres, Bruiser at Pariah Arts
SSTD and Seres are two bands that wouldn't sound out of place at the Battle of the Bands in Scott Pilgrim: very grungy, very garage-y, pretty geeky. It's only $5 and it's BYOB. — PW
Kale and Ale at Sundown
Sundown is celebrating its fourth anniversary by giving away half-price salads and $1 bottled beers. Something healthy and something healthily sinful. The celebration goes on for three days, which give you plenty of opportunities to swing by and congratulate the awesomeness that is the Granada's little sibling. — Roberto Aguilar
Group Ride to Out of Deepwood Screening at Katy Trail
Out of Deepwood is a short film documenting the history of environmental terrorism that has plagued the Trinity River Audubon Center. Earth Day Texas and TEDxSMU are hosting a free screening at Angelika Film Center at 6:30 p.m. and there is a group planning a bike ride to the screening through Katy Trail. There will also be a panel discussion after the screening. Dallas traffic during rush hour is infuriating anyway, so go get in touch with nature before learning about a piece of Dallas history. — PW
