Behold The Show Of Shows.
Feeling stressed after the SXSW/St. Patty's/Easter trifecta? Why not try out Neko Atsume, a Japanese smartphone game about collecting cats. Really, that's the whole point of the game, to feed 40 virtual strays that wander into your digital yard. It's supposed to be oddly therapeutic.
Of course, if figuring out to do with yourself for the next seven days is the underlying cause for all that stress, there's a more clear-cut path to relief. The following list of ways to spend your week in North Texas should provide that sweet relief.
