Krissy's Cheez-e Films: You won't find a better film value in town for your dollar than Club Dada's monthly Krissy's Cheez-e Film series, because it doesn't even cost a dollar; you can use that buck toward a beer. What Krissy and company do is compile some of the funniest of public-domain 16mm films and then screen them on the patio for your guffaws. October's selection includes The Monkey's Paw, Houdini Never Died, and There's Something in My Attic. The screenings happen at 9 p.m. at 2720 Elm. It's free. Call 744-3232.
Nice Jewish Girls: Growing Up in America The Jewish Community Center kicks off its Book Fair series with a conversation by a syndicated columnist who has made it something of a personal mission to document the inner lives of shiksas. Award winner Marlene Adler Marks comes to Dallas to talk about her book, Nice Jewish Girls: Growing Up in America, a collection of voices that features personal anecdotes by some very Jewish, not always nice literary powerhouses like Erica Jong, Grace Paley, and Leyy Cottin Pogrebin. The luncheon program kicks off at 11:30 a.m. Tickets are $20; directions to the event are provided with ticket purchase. For info call 739-2737.
