12 fall events for your weekend in DFW October 10-13
You don't have to be a college football fan to have fun this weekend. (Though there's plenty if you are.)
- The Old Monk on Henderson in Dallas is engraving people's names on pints of Guinness. All you've got to do is pay for the full glass of beer.
- A new exhibit at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth tours visitors through about 100 works of art by Picasso and Matisse. (Protip: If you don't go today, go on Tuesdays, when admission is half-price.)
- The Chinese Lantern Festival at the State Fair of Texas is open and ready for visitors. There's a 300-foot dragon, a 52-foot-tall pagoda and 25 lantern displays. Go at night.

5 very pink events in DFW for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
- Before the Red River Shootout on Saturday (that's Texas vs OU), singers from each school will break out in song Friday at noon at the Galleria.
- In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, get checked out during a "mammogramathon" in Sunnyvale. See 5 "very pink" events happening in honor of this special month here.
- The Eagles perform Friday and Saturday night at the AAC in Dallas. It's going to be tough to get tickets, but those who do will have a "Peaceful Easy Feeling" in "The Long Run." (Sorry.)
- Jury's still out on whether Texas/OU weekend in Dallas is about sports or socializing. If you aren't going to the game, watch it at the Granada, party on the plaza, or see a Pat Green show. If you aren't looking to party, steer clear of the State Fair.
- The annual BeerFeast is Saturday at Flying Saucer in Fort Worth. A $30 ticket gets you into the fest, with free tastes for up to 12 samples.
- The National and Tame Impala play in a huge, sold-out show at South Side Ballroom Saturday night.
- Fright Fest continues at Six Flags Over Texas. Check out plenty of other haunted frights in our best-of list here.
- Last weekend's Dallas Cowboys game was pretty exciting, right? The 'Boys play the Washington Redskins, who are getting ready after Tony Romo's 500+-yard, five-touchdown passes from last week.
- The Dia de los Muertos celebration kicks off at 5 p.m. Sunday at the Bath House Cultural Center. In addition to the art exhibition, patrons are encouraged to come in costume.
