14 Awesome Things to Do in Dallas this Weekend, June 6 to 11

On Tuesday, June 11, we're having a night of storytelling on the Sundown at Granada's gorgeous rooftop. We've partnered with them, Oral Fixation and some local musicians to make it happen, and we'll be giving away prizes. All of the stories will be ripped from real life, so grab some drinks and cozy up for an evening of true confessions. (Oh, it's free.)

This weekend you'll want to hunker down in Oak Cliff, where a certain film festival has taken over. There's also amazingly weird theater over at the Ochre House, Dead White Zombies have occupied a crack house, taxidermy art gets auctioned off by Art Conspiracy, Jerry Seinfeld passes through, and there's even a party for your dog. Click on the event titles for more information, and I'll see you out there. (I'll be the one heckling Seinfeld.)

Thursday 6.6 Oak Cliff Film Festival -- It's the biggest little fest in town, and we're completely enamored. The OCFF takes over a dozen historic sites this weekend, uniting casual and insatiable film lovers. There's a Pussy Riot documentary, a throwback film about computer chess and a croquet match. Oh, and Bobcat Goldthwait will be there, so you can finally get that copy of Hot to Trot autographed.
