16th Annual Blue Yule Holiday Party and Fundraiser

The Mac : Sat., December 3, 5:30pm-7:30pm

If you haven’t already, it’s about time you make the yearly visit to the attic, lug all of those boxes marked “Christmas” down the stairs, and get to decorating for the holidays.

Dear Santa, Well, once again I’ve been a fairly rotten boy, but I hope you can overlook that and make with a gift that will help improve my soiled moral character. You see, Nick — Can I call you Nick? — I need a new brain, one never exposed to the Internet or Beavis and Butt-Head. I want a… More >>

Scrooge the Musical

Artisan Center Theater : Every week Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday from Fri., November 18 until Fri., December 23, 7:30pm

A Christmas Carol — yeah, that again — was penned in the 19th century, but its themes are still pretty relatable.

Good Luck Karaoke

Double-Wide : Every week Thursday, 10:30pm-2:00am

Do you really need us to explain this one? Good Luck Karaoke? It’s so obvious, but we’ll do it anyway: First of all, there’s the whole luck o’ the Irish thing — that ties in with the name. Then there’s the ancient Irish tradition of karaoke. The word “karaoke” roughly translates, in Gaelic, to… More >>

The sucky thing about Snowpocalypse 2011 was that all of the Dallas area screeched to a halt for a few days.
