Don't You Mess Around.
If you are, say, a doe-eyed little chameleon named Laura, there's probably nothing you'd love more than to stay in this evening popping bubbles.
And there'd be absolutely nothing wrong with that.
But we have it on good authority that you are not, in fact, a member of the lizard family. And if you're any kind of human being at all, you'll probably need a bit more excitement in your life than poking aimlessly at a few orbs of floating soap tends to provide.
Well, you're in luck. The following is a list of human-friendly activities to occupy your person time this evening. — Cory Graves
Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo at House of Blues
Be you a heartbreaker, a dream-maker or a love-taker, you'll want to be at the Verizon tonight. Not only is rock legend Pat Benatar celebrating the 36th anniversary of the song from whence that bit of lyrics came, but also her marriage to guitarist Neil Giraldo, who has written and produced much of Benatar's catalog over the years. You, um, better run. — CG
Ignite DFW at Texas Theatre
Ever wanted to pitch ideas that could positively affect the environment, the country or just a specific industry but haven't been able to find anyone to listen? Texas Theatre is hosting Ignite DFW tonight, a kind of local version of a TED Talk. Ignite DFW is a public forum that brings together people wanting to make a change or just personal stories that make a point and an audience willing to listen and give feedback. Even if you don't have any ideas of your own, you may find yourself inspired by others. — Diamond Victoria
Hopped Up Cinema at Alamo Drafthouse
Each month, Alamo Drafthouse combines cinema and craft brews with its Hopped Up Cinema series. This month, they're reliving the '80s, pairing Tom Hanks classic The Burbs with a flight of beers from No Label Brewing Co., including a special edition firkin. — Lauren Rushing
CoLab, Friday's Foolery at Three Links (Free)
Filling the early week void at Deep Ellum's most punk bar is a weekly experiment of R&B and hip-hop brought on by locals Colab and Friday's Foolery. There's no cover, and drink specials last all night. — Evan Henry
