This Easter weekend has something for everyone in Dallas
Pack of dogs, a group of bears, a Christian pop star, several hundred lesbians and the Easter Bunny.
A pack of dogs, a group of bears, a Christian pop star, several hundred lesbians and the Easter Bunny walk into a bar. Believe it or not, that’s not a joke setup. It’s what’s in store over the next seven days of springtime fun.

It’s the 23rd anniversary of one of the city’s most festive celebrations. Register for the Pooch Parade at 11:00 a.m., watch the parade of adoptable dogs at 12:45 p.m., followed by the pooch costume parade at 1:00 p.m. Then relax until 3:00 p.m. when the Dallas Symphony Orchestra loosens up and has some fun with their instruments. Wear your Easter bonnets, pack a picnic and make sure to bring plenty of hand sanitizer for the port-a-potties.
Ya!Ya, Anton Shaw, Fishing for Comets and Ciao Bella: Girl Power Weekend - Sue Ellen’s
Tonight – Sunday, March 23. Cover: 0-$4
This weekend has nothing to do with Wonder Woman, Batgirl or that really strong chick who fixes the office copier, but everything to do with rockin’ out with the gals at Sue Ellen’s for the next four nights. Ya!Ya, Anton Shaw, Fishing for Comets and Ciao Bella jam pack the lineup with some serious indie cred and tunes for days. Literally.
Texas Bear Round Up 13
Tonight – Sunday, March 23. Prices, times and venues vary, but go to www.dallasbears.com for a schedule.
Grrrrr. Grrrrrrrr. Who’s that knockin’ at my door? A bear! A bear! A great big bear (or several hundred). From midnight swimming parties and underwear auctions to lip-smackin’ barbecue and bingo, it’s all about the bears this weekend. Goldilocks, rest easy. Ain’t nobody sleepin’ in your bed tonight.
Friday, March 21 & Saturday, March 22, 8:00 p.m. Tickets: $26 to $101.
Remember that great dream where Amy Grant invites you to a party and you become her new best friend? Just us? Hmmm. Well, create new dreams as the ever-likable Christian pop queen joins the Dallas Symphony Orchestra for a little wholesome entertainment. Believe us, you need it.
