If you’re looking for something to do this weekend and you live in Dallas, or you’re staying at Bailey’s Uptown Inn, take a look at our suggestions.
The Fatal West End Haunted House
If you’re in the mood for a Halloween-y outing, and aren’t too much of a scaredy-cat, head over to the West End for Dallas’s most terrifying haunted house. The House is laid out over two subterranean floors of one of Dallas’s oldest buildings, and one that many locals claim is haunted, to boot. There’s no phony plywood here: all the creaking floorboards are real. The Fatal End also boasts some of the best-trained actors of any haunted house in the country. Tickets are $25 at the door.
The Angelika Film Center will be showing the classic Hitchcock thriller “Psycho” this Thursday, October 27, for free. The movie will be shown on the theater’s patio, so you’ll also get to enjoy the fresh fall weather. The event’s organizers suggest bringing blankets for picnic-style seating. The Film Center itself, which is located in Mockingbird Station, also features a full bar, so enjoy a drink while you watch this suspenseful classic.
Paul Simon is playing at the Verizon Theater at Grand Prairie on Friday, October 28, at 8:00 P.M. Simon is a world-renowned musician who has won twelve Grammy awards in his lifetime. Originally part of a duo with Art Garfunkel, Simon now tours solo, but still plays many of the hits from him Simon & Garfunkel days. Some of Simon’s most famous tunes are “The Sound of Silence,” “Kodachrome,” and my personal favorite, “You Can Call Me Al.” Ticket prices vary, but they usually begin around $20 for decent seats and max out at around $100 for front-row. The theater isn’t close to Uptown, but for Paul Simon I will rive 20 minutes.
