- OMG, y'all, Ommegang is tapping its beer, Take the Black Stout, at Holy Grail Pub in Plano. The beer was brewed in honor of HBO show Game of Thrones.
- The musical Urinetown is a satire about "the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement and municipal politics." Whew.

- Take the whole family to downtown Dallas Saturday for the yearly tree lighting on Main Street. The same night, Neiman Marcus will unveil its holiday windows, which will have the crawling tubes for your kids to explore. Free.
