Things To Do In Dallas Tonight: June 26


Well, tickets to Louis C.K.’s October 20 gig at the Majestic Theatre came and went. The truly heinous stench of Ross Avenue from Olive to St. Paul has, unfortunately, lingered. Seriously, Dallas, you smell. You’re basically forcing me into the arms of Fort Worth.

I have no special attachment to the Blue Man Group, since the guy I dated in college was a huge fan and I was not.  This guy was also a huge fan of making weekly pilgrimages to every comedy club where Jerry Seinfeld had ever performed and sitting at the table closest to the stage. Obviously, that relationship worked out well. The silver lining: Arrested Development altered my feelings just enough to allow me to smile benevolently upon these painted PVC pipe percussionists. No such luck for Jerry Seinfeld.

Anyway, the Blue Man Group performs at Bass Hall tonight, sans Tobias “I Just Blue Myself” Fünke but still cool in every other way. My brilliant marketing scheme for AD‘s upcoming Netflix revival is for David Cross to join the real dudes on tour. Nobody has to pay me for this genius idea (though I like money). Just make it happen, and invite me.

Also this evening, Shakespeare Dallas’ very charming production of Twelfth Night continues at the Samuel Grand amphitheater. Bring your picnic, your battery-powered fan, and your chilled bottles of booze.

If you prefer an indoor activity, check out the Round Table, a new philanthropic organization for young professionals spearheaded by the North Texas Food Bank. The Round Table hosts a charitable happy hour this evening at The Owner’s Box in the Omni Hotel. SideDish says, “Orange is the color of hunger and The Owner’s box will donate $1 to NTFB for every Mandarin Orange Martini sold from June 26 through July 26 to NTFB.” Sold.

Update: I’m not telling you guys anything you don’t already know, but a second show for Louis C.K.’s Dallas stop on October 20 has been added. It’s a late one, but you can still get tickets.
