20 Awesome Things to Do in Dallas This Weekend, May 30 to June 4

Bluto's right. Psychotic, but absolutely right. We can't give up. It's ... THE WEEKEND.

Texas Theatre screens Animal House on Friday night, followed by a toga party. Anthony Jeselnik brings his gelled hair and poisoned tongue to the House of Blues on Thursday. And if you're still hurting for action, there are Tracy Morgan, Ira Glass, an outdoor screening of Back to the Future, a massive pool party at Ku De Ta, an East Side Gallery walk, Margaret Atwood, an anime convention and more. So grab your children's hoverboard, call up your crew and click on the event titles for more information.

I'll see you out there. (I'll be the one toga-ing in Star Wars sheets.)

Thursday 5.30 Anthony Jeselnik -- He carved out his fame writing jokes for, and eventually slinging them on, Comedy Central's celebrity roasts. Now Jeselnik has his own show, a stand-up routine that's selling out national venues and an unflinchingly raw delivery we haven't seen since the Andrew Dice Clay days. Lovers of the politically correct, duck and cover.
