Happy weekend wooden sign

If you enjoy Shakespeare, Fantasy Football, Texas Motor Speedway drag racing, fireworks, outdoor entertainment, fresh peaches, roller derby, vinyl records, the Dallas Zoo, the Trinity River, vintage and repurposed items or Panther Island Pavilion, here are your 98.7K-LUV #WeekendThangsToDoInDFW!


  • Shakespeare in the Park: The Taming of the Shrew at Samuell-Grand Park - per their website, "The wealthy Baptista wants to find matches for his daughters. Suitors swarm around sweet Bianca, but temperamental older sister Katherina spurns any man who darkens her door. Enter the dashing Petruchio, whose wits and determination ignite a comedic battle of the sexes. A hilarious, delirious tangle of masquerades and misdirection plays out against a backdrop of the affluent society of the Hamptons during the American suffragette movement in 1910. And in the end, the surprising love story dares to ask what roles we play . . . and, underneath, who we really are."

With transfer skaters entering the league from across the country, and veteran skaters switching teams, this season will have new team lineups, which of course will shake things for exciting games this year! Not only are these ladies strong skaters on the track, but they also empower themselves off the track by giving back to the DFW community. This game we are giving back to @WingsofHopeEquitherapy and can't wait to work with them during the year. The Dallas Derby Devils is a non-profit league who relies on the time and effort from their skaters and volunteers to help run the league. The third game of the season is on July 14th, 2018 at the NYTEX Sports Centre in North Richland Hills. Doors open at 6pm and the first whistle at 6:30pm.
