17 Awesome Things to Do in Dallas This Weekend, April 4 to 7

DIFF begins this weekend (see our guide here), and it takes over Klyde Warren Park on Saturday for Family Day, a too-cute community event and baseball season kick-off pairing that features a free screening of The Sandlot.

Whether you're hungry, excited about Rangers Opening Day, feeling adventurous, or craving art, comedy or opera, this list is packed with satisfaction. It's what we call a BIG DALLAS WEEKEND. So make a plan, share this with your crew, and click on the event titles for more information. I'll see you out there. (I'll be the one throwing like a girl.)

Thursday 4.4 Bobcat Goldthwait -- Surprise career resurgence alert: Bobcat has outgrown the wheezy, twisted vocal shtick and turned into quite a respected filmmaker. According to his website, he's here to do stand-up at Hyena's for a two-night run. I like to imagine he's a last minute add on to all of the DIFF panels.
