This morning, as I returned to the office after a weeklong vacation and searched for some Things To Do in Dallas this week, I came to a disturbing realization: Summer is drawing to a close. There’s really nothing we can do about it besides enjoying the last of it. In fact, I think you should go out tonight.
Parliament, the excellent cocktail bar in Uptown, celebrates another anniversary with The Five Year Voyage tonight at 8 p.m. Stop by for a gimlet and some funkadelic music. It’s free to attend with an RSVP.
Before that shindig begins, there’s an EarthxFilm screening at the Magnolia Theatre at 7 p.m. The movie is Kifaru, a documentary about the last male white rhino, and director David Hambridge will be there. There’s also a virtual reality experience in the lobby ahead of the film. Tickets are free with registration.
Meanwhile at Trinity Cider, Dallasites101 continues its trivia series with a night of Gilmore Girls on Monday. The questions begin at 7 p.m. and tickets are $15 online, including one cider.
There’s more trivia fun on Tuesday at Geeks Who Drink’s Quiz for a Cause benefiting Dallas Afterschool. The event is at 7:30 p.m. at Deep Ellum Brewing Company.
Wednesday offers a range of options for evening activities.
There’s an advance screening of Raise Hell: The Life & Times of Molly Ivins, at Alamo Drafthouse locations across DFW. The film will be followed by a livestream panel discussions. Read more about the new documentary here.
The Adolphus finishes out its Summer Cinema Series with a showing of Jaws at 8:30 p.m. on its seventh floor pool deck. It’s supposed to rain, so the movie may be moved inside. In any case, it’s free to attend.
Finally, Grammy-winning artist Common brings the Let Love Tour to The Bomb Factory on Wednesday at 8 p.m. Special guest Maimouna Youssef (Mumu Fresh) will open the show. Tickets start at $40.
