Need weekend plans? We have you covered!
Join the circus
The big top is up in Grand Prairie at Lone Star Park for Cirque du Soleil, which premieres on Friday. The name of this show is called Kurios and it's a steam punk-themed show featuring all the crazy acrobatics and mind-bending aerial tricks Cirque du Soleil is known for. I got a little preview of the set up yesterday and it looks nothing short of amazing.
Tickets start at $20 for the show, and it will be here through March 26.
A body-slamming good time
Fans of WWE will want to head to the American Airlines Center in Dallas on Friday. Wrestlers Brock Lesnar, Sasha Banks and many others will be in town for WWE Live: Road to Wrestlemania. Matches start at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are going for as little at $20. The best seats in the house will cost you about $105 before tax.
Sing the hits
Lots of amazing concerts are also coming through this weekend. One of the biggest parties will be Mardi Gras Texas Style at Fair Park on Saturday. Casey Donahew, Cody Johnson, Shooter Jennings and more artists will be there. Plus the event includes food, drinks and of course some Mardi Gras beads.
On Sunday, a unique event called Neil Fest comes to Granada Theater in Dallas. This is a tribute show to Neil Young featuring an all-star cast of musicians, including Norah Jones, Boz Scaggs, The Flatlanders and more. They'll be playing Neil Young tunes all night Tickets cost $50, but it is a fundraiser.
The last one to keep on your radar is Sting, who will be performing at Verizon Theatre in Grand Prairie on Monday. He has a new album out, so he's touring in support of that.
And beer, because, beer!
Lastly, if you're looking to throw back a couple of beers, there are two events you don't want to miss. The first is Community Beer Co.'s fourth anniversary party on Saturday. This is one of my favorite breweries in Dallas and they'll have more than 30 different special brews available.
Then on Sunday, LUCK restaurant at Trinity Groves is hosting beer-chili cook-off, which is exactly what it sounds like. Each chili is made with a beer from each respective brewery that's participating and attendees get to vote for their favorite, which will stay on the restaurant's menu for several months. I'll be judging that too, so come see me!
