The works of William Shakespeare are timeless, and since 1971, Shakespeare Dallas has been a part of their rich theatrical tradition. From their roots as a summer company and their first, somewhat modest production—a one-man take on Hamlet —the organization has evolved to produce cultural events year-round. During the summer, skilled actors perform the Bard’s plays in the open air. When autumn arrives, Shakespeare on the Go! brings artists to schools to share age-specific, interactive programs. And through all seasons, Shakespeare Unplugged meets the community’s recommended iambic pentameter intake with staged readings and insightful lectures.

Like the finale of a long-running sitcom where the leads finally kiss, Brew-HaHa marries two things that should have been together from the start: standup comedy and craft beer. Armed with a refillable pint glass, guests start the night with a brief tour of local craft breweries, including Dallas's Community Beer Company, the Lakewood Brewing Co. in Garland, and Ft. Worth's Panther Island Brewing. After getting a good fill of local nectar, everyone settles in for a set that mixes headliners seen on Comedy Central, HBO, and Showtime with some of North Texas' top jokesters. Although the lineup constantly changes, the night is always hosted by Tyson Faifer, who may or may not hang from the ceiling by his knuckles like he did on NBC's American Ninja Warrior.
Whether grounded or airborne, balloons dominate the festivities at Old Celina Park. On the ground, the vibrantly patterned balloons glow and undulate as propane burners pump them with hot air.
With this canopy of colored dots overhead, the festival’s entertainment comes alive as musical acts such as Jason Boland & the Stragglers along with Dale Watson performing on Saturday take the stage. The Steak Cook-off Association will host a sanctioned steak cook-off to qualify for the championship that will take place in Fort Worth. Inflatables promote adrenaline rushes along with human hamster balls, and a Home Depot Activity Zone.
Sudsy brews slosh in clink-ready cups at the third annual North Texas Beer and Wine Festival, which takes up residence at the new Irving Convention Center on Saturday, May 12. Once the doors open to the general public at 2 p.m., imbibers can snack on high-end eats from the likes of Velvet Taco and The Ranch in Las Colinas, and sample the wares of local and international brewers from Imperial and Franconia. These brewmasters sling samples of hundreds of different beers, from classic signature brews to new, experimental creations. Just one of several enriching presentations on the schedule, Kelly Harris of Homebrew Headquarters edifies entrepreneurs and enthusiasts at 2:45 p.m. with an introductory course to home brewing. In a sprawling beer garden, live music from The Superkings and Dallas All Stars Blues Jam serenades sippers in the afternoon hours, easing eardrums into the VIP-only event featuring Band of Brothers and Zionaura.
The Dallas Tattoo Expo gathers tattoo artists and enthusiasts from across the region for a weekend-long celebration of body art. More than 50 vendors and artists, including Zack Singer, Scotty Munster, and Gold Dust Studio, are scheduled to attend, and guests can watch them do live work throughout the weekend. The real highlight of the convention, however, is the long list of tattoo contests being held throughout the event, with categories including Best Neo Traditional, Best Black and White, and Best Creative Spelling of "Mom." In addition to the prizes awarded to contest winners, attendees will have the opportunity to win prizes and free gear.
