Things To Do In Dallas Tonight: Dec. 8

I was a pretty horrendous artist as a kid. The only thing recognizable from my oeuvre were trees and the occasional flower, which is possibly why I find the Monster Engine so fascinating. It’s old, but I just stumbled across it last night. A comic book artist realizes the fantastic work of kids. Clicking through the monsters was such a nice way to start the day.

The NasherSALON with Olive on Pushing Daisies Glinda the Good Witch Kristin Chenoweth is very, very sold out. Sad. No matter. You can listen to “Taylor, The Latte Boy” on your way to the Texas Theatre to see a 35 mm print of Run Lola Run in advance of director Tom Tykwer’s latest feature, 3, released tomorrow. This movie is just awesome. Three scenarios; three ways life could be different if you were faster or slower or somehow changed. Highly recommended, but if you can’t make it tonight, they’ll show Lola all weekend.

Also kicking off tonight is the Dallas Black Dance Theatre’s Winter Series performance, the company’s 35th season opener. It’s very battle of the sexes, with a program that includes Camouflage, an all-male ballet choreographed by Ben Stevenson, artistic director of the Texas Ballet Theater, the DBDT premiere of Vespers, an intense all-female piece choreographed by Ulysses Dove, and Elisa Monte’s Pigs and Fishes. Might I suggest finishing your evening with a season cocktail? Raya rounds up the best over on SideDish. Drinking has never looked so pretty.
