15 Awesome Things To Do in Dallas this Weekend, January 2 to 5

Welcome to a new year, Dallas! That means you've got a clean slate just waiting to be dirtied. Start strong this weekend with art openings, two visits by George Takei (Oh, myyy!), football ragers, classical music, films, burlesque shows, zine release parties and more. We've got it all in this weekend list, so alert your party squad, click the event titles for more information and make a plan. Then, go show 2014 that you're in charge. I'll see you out there. (I'll be the one following Takei around, disguised as a mountain of Tribbles.)

Thursday, 1.2 Being John Malkovich -- In Spike Jonze's latest, we see Joaquin Phoenix learn true intimacy through his advanced operating system in Her. But even his first full-length feature, Being John Malkovich played with odd mental inner workings. Revisit Jonze's early release in 35-mm goodness tonight when Texas Theatre airs out the eccentric cinematic classic.
