I Heart History
Some people have a mind for physics. Others have the stomach for the study of human anatomy and all the blood and unpleasantness that entails. I, however, have a heart for history, which is why the Dallas Historical Society's Have a Heart for History Day sounds right up my alley. The day's theme is the art of collecting, so there will certainly be plenty of opportunities to bone up on your antiquing skills, but you can also mingle with other Texas history buffs, sign up to retrace the steps of Bonnie and Clyde on a historical tour and enjoy the entertaining performance of actor and historian Jack Edmonson, who will present his impressive portrayal of Sam Houston. Events run from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Hall of State in Fair Park. Call 214-421-4500 or visit dallashistory.org.
Sat., Feb. 11, 2-5 p.m.
