Show Your Bones

The undead walk among us. From Joan Rivers to Michael Jackson, they're everywhere. And the only way we're getting rid of them is by bludgeoning their skulls or burning their corpses—but don't do it. Farrah Fawcett will go ape-shit on you if you come at her with a lighter. She may look like a skeleton crapped on her face, but she's still got all of those old-school Charlie's Angels moves. Instead, you should go see a stage adaptation of Night of the Living Dead this weekend at Rosewood Center for Family Arts, 5938 Skillman St. Since it's targeted at young adults, maybe Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie will be there, showing off their backbones and ribcages. Ooh. And their face dents. Nicole is rocking some really good face dents right now. Night of the Living Dead runs 7:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Or, check out the special Halloween performance at 7:30 p.m. October 31. The show is recommended for ages 13 and up. Tickets cost $16 for adults and $14 for youth and seniors.

Fridays-Sundays. Starts: Oct. 13. Continues through Nov. 4

Alice Laussade writes about food, kids, music, and anything else she finds to be completely ridiculous. She created and hosts the Dallas event, Meat Fight, which is a barbecue competition and fundraiser that benefits the National MS Society. Last year, the event raised $100,000 for people living with MS, and 750 people could be seen shoving sausage links into their faces. And one time, she won a James Beard Award for Humor in Writing. That was pretty cool.
