The teams?composed of at least two people?vie for a $300 first-place prize. The Amazing Race?style competition rewards quick wits and wise planning over physical fitness, so the best way to prepare is by doing logic puzzles while eating Funyuns and lounging in a La-Z-Boy.

  • Charli XCX & Bleachers
    To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Dallas keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage. Summoning the spirit and raw grit contained therein, local and national performers enliven the venue’s wood-laden auditorium, lined with art such as Alan Sainte James Boudrot’s A Dream Come True. The historic White Swan building, a remnant of the 1920s coffee-processing plant, hosts this mix of traditional and contemporary, adding its open architecture to every show.

    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Dallas Greek Picnic facet_type_id: d62bc930-9532-1032-9f7f-6bee92475c52 html_text: |- Serving as a festive reunion for alumni and undergrads from across the Southwest, Dallas Greek Picnic gathers together members of the National Pan-Hellenic Council—the series of traditionally African American fraternities and sororities also known as the Noble Nine. At this annual three-day event, more than 5,000 attendees showcase their talents—and defend their chapter's pride—in activities such as basketball games, a DJ showcase, and a massive step-team competition hosted by R&B artist Keith Jacobs. Despite the competition, the weekend is an opportunity to rekindle old friendships and spark new ones. An afterparty and picnic gives everyone a chance to recuperate from the competitions and network with their fellow Greeks. Along with a large group service project, the event also helps support two local causes: revitalizing the southern sector of Dallas and donating gifts to the nearby Children's Medical Center.

  • Color Fun Fest Dallas
    As the sun sets, the lagoon within Fair Park in Dallas, Texas, transforms into a magnificent spectacle where 24 lantern sets weave a rainbow of light around the fairgrounds. Visitors enter through an illuminated red tunnel to explore the festival, where each area has a distinct offering. At the center lagoon, a 130-foot-long imperial dragon boat radiantly navigates amid other twinkling showcases, such as the vibrant Castle of Dreams, cloisonné-decorated vases, and palace lanterns. Elsewhere, the shimmering Porcelain Pagoda made up of more than 70,000 hand-tied bowls, spoons, and wine cups stretches 52 feet high. The story of these illuminated marvels begins in Sichuan, China, where nearly 50 artisans and technicians craft small pieces and raw materials before shipping them to Dallas. There, the exported cloth, glass, and porcelain is transformed over the course of several months into the lanterns that paint the night atmosphere of the festival.

Luckily, at the Dallas Observer BrewFest, visitors are encouraged to sample 2-ounce pours, though choosing just 12 from the selection of more than 300 types of beers might prove to be tricky. For one day, brewers from around the globe converge at the Dallas Farmers Market to show off the barley pops of their labor and chat with beer enthusiasts of all stripes. Live music keeps the environment lively throughout the evening, and a handful of local restaurants will also be onsite to sling sandwiches, hot dogs, and burgers to hungry fest-goers and to test if you can make beer using the grains in a hamburger bun.
