15 Awesome Things To Do In Dallas This Weekend, January 17 to 19

I think by now we've reached an understanding. A cultural trust fall, of sorts.

This Saturday is Artopia, the Observer's annual art-dance-music-fashion party, and you should go. I say that with bias aside, because the lineup is crazy good. VIP is sold out. A few general admission tickets are still available.

C'mon, loves. Let's get together.

There's more. Lots more, so step away from the Netflix. It's a huge weekend for local theater. The DMA's flexing another Late Night. There are comedy, resurrected cinema, MLK Jr. celebrations and even a birthday party for a brewery. (They grow up so fast.)

I'll see you out there. (I'll be the one handing out GIANT checks out to local artists at Artopia.)

Friday, 1.17 Late Night at the DMA -- Running until the witching hour, tonight's artful rager celebrates the museum's 111th birthday with music by Brave Combo (8 p.m.), digital video experimentation (9:30 p.m.), films and another set of live music by Denton's Two Knights (10 p.m.). It's free, people.
