Things To Do In Dallas Tonight: May 13

An excuse to drink every night this week, if you really needed one besides, you know, “life.”

In case you hadn’t heard, AT&T Performing Arts Center is opening the doors to its new box office/info center today. It has a Pearl Cup, which should be nice, since it’ll stay open until 9 p.m. I like the idea of getting coffee before a show.

It’s also American Craft Beer Week, so let the celebrations commence. The Libertine has been stirring up competition all month between local breweries Community and Lakewood, and the finale is tonight. It’s lager versus lager, and the winning beer is the one that gets tapped. Meanwhile, the Flying Saucer in Addison puts Lakewood Brewing Company in the solo spotlight. They’ll have Rock Ryder Cask, a special version of their regular American rye/wheat with lychee and citra hops, Till and Toil, a saison, and the original Rock Ryder on tap, and Temptress, a milk stout, in bottles.

Other goings-on this evening include a studio class at Oil & Cotton. It’s about time we had some May flowers, so Shannon Driscoll will teach you how to make your own everlasting blooms with folding techniques that can be used on a variety of papers, from book pages to tissue paper. It’s all very pretty, and I keep killing my plants. I need something decorative that’s a bit more resilient, but there’s a fine line between “hardy” and “tacky.”
