9 things to do this weekend in Dallas-Fort Worth, October 4-6
Saturday, head to Big D for the State Fair, or little D (that's Denton) for a craft beer fest.
- Attend a free Dallas Mavericks scrimmage Friday at 4 p.m. Parking costs $5.
- Friday night at Three Links in Deep Ellum, quirky folk/rock duo The O's join comedian Paul Varghese and singer/songwriter Madison King for a homegrown variety show. If you go, stop into Glazed Donut Works afterward for a late-night grilled cheese doughnut sandwich.
- For one night only, the Omni in downtown Dallas becomes a makeshift drive-in movie theater, where local artists' multimedia art projects will be displayed on the giant neon walls. Stake out a spot anywhere; it's free.
