A Green-Free Weekend in Dallas

If celebrating St. Patrick’s Day isn’t your cup of (green) tea, the Modtown Blogger has some other Dallas happenings for you instead!

If you want to relive your childhood or if you still maintain a healthy love for antiquated fun, check out the Texas Pinball Festival, a quirky event held at the Embassy Suites Hotel and Convention Center in Dallas this Friday-Sunday. Pinball collectors and vendors are bringing more than 400 new and classical pinball machines for you to play and admire at your pleasure! There will also be tournaments and pinball designers, which I didn’t know existed. What a job title. Attendees can purchase passes at the door for $25 on Friday, $35 on Saturday and $20 on Sunday or $60 for a weekend pass. Don’t miss this endearingly peculiar festival!

If you’re a good Southerner and love crawfish as much as the next Texan, mark your calendars for the Mudbug Bash celebrating its fourth annual event that has 4,000 pounds of your beloved crawdads. It’s happening this Saturday, March 19, 4pm-10pm and admission is $15 a person! There will also be live music and cold beer to pair with some delicious food. Don’t miss it!

The second season of Knife’s Sunday Cinema Series will kick off this Sunday with a screening of Bottle Rocket, directed by Wes Anderson! Gourmet snacks and beers will be provided by Four Corners Brewing Company on Commerce Street at 7:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $35, with $10 of each ticket sold going to support the Dallas Film Society!

At 7:30pm on Saturday, the Dallas Museum of Art is presenting Rainn Wilson: Quirks, Comedy and Creativity this weekend only! Take a chance to see your favorite paper salesman from The Office in Dallas and hear about his post-television projects, like soulpancake.com among others. Who wouldn’t love a run-in with Dwight Schrute?

You have your pick of the litter this weekend, Dallas! Make the most of it.
