The 20 best things to do in Dallas this week (3/14-3/20)


This week in Dallas, the sounds of the seminal era of Gang Of Four, ADOY’s first show in Dallas, more St. Patty’s Truck Yard celebrations and more.

Dallas, it’s been a crazy celebration of St. Patrick’s Day weekend and we’re still recovering just like you. Just before the weekend, we all saw something on our feeds that sent some of us into a frenzy or utter confusion.

Celebrities tend to do this.

On Friday, Kim Kardashian formalized her relationship with Pete Davidson on Instagram. We all know this has been going on for a while now, but seeing it on the Instagram feed takes it to a whole new level.

No beer in the world will ever explain a match… like that, but who cares, who are we to judge?

The pair first hit it big in October 2021 when they shared a kiss in a Saturday Night Live bit. Since then, talk has increased about the two as Kim continues to kick Kanye out of her life, and they were spotted holding hands at Knott’s Scary Farm in California shortly after the SNL episode.

After a few months of rumors and disturbing messages from Kanye, Kim Kardashian made the couple’s Instagram debut on Friday with a bird’s eye view of Pete’s head on her lap and a selfie of them together. This post sits at 6.1 million likes, just over four times the number of likes the previous post received.

Pete should anyway be gearing up for his latest movie which will debut this week at SXSW. If your celebrity gossip video queue is over about this duo and you need something else to pass your time, here are our top 20 things to do in Dallas over the next seven days.
