What To Do in Dallas Tonight : April 29, 2010

caricatureThis weekend’s weather forecast looks great if you like rain. If you don’t, I recommend going to Mayfest in Fort Worth today. This annual festival has it all: art, music, face painting, dogs catching frisbees, and a totally-out-of-season haunted house. However, I think the coolest part of the festival is the wakeboarding. The Cowtown Wakepark is set to open up next year, but they are making their debut this weekend at Mayfest. Owner Tommy Fambrough tells us how it works: a cable system is used to pull boarders up and down the river, making it easy to wakeboard without the use of a boat. He says anyone of any age can do it, and best of all, the public is able to give it a try all weekend for free.

(Also, did you know they sell Fletcher’s Corny Dogs at the Fest? It’s one of the only places you can get one besides the State Fair. That’s enough to get me on I-30.)

Here’s another idea: Endgame is playing at the Undermain Theatre, and it is apparently the story of the end of the world…or is it? The players consist of a blind tyrant, his assistant, and his parents (who live in trashcans). Figuring out what the heck is going on is part of the fun: FrontRow critic David Novinski says “Undermain’s fantastic Endgame is the production that others will be judged by.” Don’t take our word, take his. Please.
