Weekend whirlwind

I remember when I first heard about Shark Week, I thought it was the “show about the investors.” But it’s been around for 30 years! Okay… Why do sharks only get a week? Are they all named Bruce? Regardless, let’s say mako don’t “mako” you happy. You have a few other events to choose from around the area. We hand-pick a few of what looks good (or the ones people pay us to tell you about, but we’ll say so when that happens). Enjoy the fun stuff!  ~Andi

​$5 Movie Tickets to JAWS in Fort Worth

There are a couple more showings of the 1975 thrill-ride JAWS to celebrate Shark Week! Just $5 per ticket, plus they are offering Shark Attack cocktails and margaritas for just 5 bucks too. At the Omni theater in the Fort Worth Science and History Museum.

A New-Fashioned Ice Cream Social


fwFLAVOR looks like it will feature some of the frozen treats, light bites and cocktails of the Shops at Clearfork with activities for the whole family. It’s FREE, too, which is a fun way to start the weekend! The shops will close at 8pm, FYI. Saturday, July 28 at 5 PM – 8 PM

National Day of the American Cowboy

Stick ’em up!

Hands down, The Fort Worth Stockyards is surely the best place in the metroplex to celebrate such a day. It’s where we all send those visitors who say “This is Texas! Where can I find a real cowboy??” You roll your eyes and tap the address into their phone so they can go rodeo it up. Well, there’s a ton of activities Saturday, from a mustache contest, chuck wagon poetry (?), quick draw contest, Youth Fiddling Contest, couple of cattle drives, and a lot more. The people-watching alone must be spectacular. Starts at 10am Saturday and runs into the night. Riscky’s Rib-Eating Contest looks to be the star of the show.

KNON Annual Harmonica Blowout!

Harmonica is not necessarily the instrument I think of when I hear the words “benefit concert” but this is like the 9th annual fundraiser for the public radio station KNON. Headlining is Paul Oscher! Raise the roof! At Pour David’s Pub Sunday, July 29 at 4 PM – 10 PM

West Coast Swing Party

Swing party, not swingers party. Ahem.

Saturday, July 28 at 8 PM – 1 AM at Studio 22: A Ballroom & Social Dance Club

 Open Mic in Denton
