In the House

When we were little, and sometimes even now, we fantasized about the house we would have when we were older. What color would it be? Would it have a basement, or possibly a Batcave? While we're bummed that our reality is about as far from the Batcave as it gets (although there was that one cave-like basement apartment), many folks would be happy if their reality included shelter at all. Enter Project Playhouse, a Home Aid/Home Builders endeavor that builds and auctions fanciful playhouses to benefit shelters for homeless individuals. Project Playhouse opens Saturday and runs through February 24 at Stonebriar Centre, 2601 Preston Road at Highway 121 in Frisco. Admission is free. For more information, call 972-931-4840 or visit
Jan. 13-Feb. 24
KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
