Upcoming Events (things I've done before and enjoyed!)

March 26: Spring Gallery Night
Get to know a few local artists while gallery hopping. It is a great way to get to know the art side of Fort Worth a little better and knock it out in one night ... like speed dating but with galleries. Ugh. Most places even provide free wine and cheese! (PDF booklet of events that night)

April 3: Big Taste of Fort Worth 2011 
A great way to find out where you should eat next. With all of Fort Worth's growth and development, there are so many new places to try.

April 3-23: Jubilee Theatre — The African Company presents Richard III
The one time I went to see a production at this theatre I absolutely loved it. I get antsy quick, but this show kept my attention until the very end. I laughed, I cried and even better, I got to peek into another world. I was still in Fort Worth, but it was such a unique experience I felt I got to leave the bubble for a bit. After the show we went to the Reata rooftop for a snack and drink. It was a fantastic night.

April 16: Modern 'Till Midnight
This makes for a great evening of art and live music. Tickets are $15 for nonmembers and free for members. What I remember loving about this night was being outside on the second floor of the Modern Art Museum with a phenomenal view of Fort Worth. The music always seems to be good, too.

April 16: Fort Worth Zoo Run
Although I've never run in this event, I absolutely love running FW races every chance I get. A bad shin splint from the Cowtown is keeping me out of this one. Races are fun for the whole family and promote health and fitness. The money to register usually goes to a great cause in Fort Worth. Proceeds from this run will go to conservation efforts around the world ... and you usually land a cool shirt.

April 14-17: MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival
I've purchased some great items here. The food is pretty good as well; I'm partial to the turkey leg. Click here for a list of artists that will be attending. If you don't like crowds, this is not the place for you.

I also love going to almost anything at the Bass Hall. There is always something going on there. Click here for their calendar of events.

I'll add more events as I think of them. Have any ideas? Post them in the comment section of this blog.
