February 1st: Viva Dallas Presents Mardi Gras! – Lakewood Theater, 8pm. If you can’t make it to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, Viva Dallas is bringing it to you this weekend! The largest burlesque show in Texas performs the first Friday of every month at Lakewood Theater. So bring plenty of beads and enjoy a little piece of the French Quarter right in your backyard.
February 1st: Drinks and Inks 2013 – Southside Music Hall, 8pm. Don’t let the name fool you. This isn’t a night of boozed filled bad decisions with a permanent reminder staring you in the face the next morning. Instead come and mingle, compare ink, brainstorm ideas for that sleeve you’ve been saving up for and enter to win some quality, and clear headed, tattoo time with ink legend Corey Miller.
February 2nd: Hedwig and The Angry Inch Party and Singalong – The Texas Theater, 9pm. Adapted from the hit off-Broadway musical of the same name, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is the tale of an ‘internationally ignored’ rock & roll singer who hails from Communist Berlin and who dreams of becoming an American sensation. Join the gang at the Texas Theater for a costume party & sing along with glam rock afterparty in the lobby.
February 2nd: The Graffiti Run – La Grave Field, 8pm. The Graffiti Run will be the most colorful day of your life. The term “run” is used loosely at the Graffiti Run. The 5K course is more about having a blast with friends and family than it is about busting out four-minute miles. So feel free to run, walk, dance, crawl, roll, piggy-back ride, or summersault your way through the color madness.
February 3rd: Super Bowl Watch Party – Granada Theater, 5:30pm. We all know why people are really tuning in for the big game this year right? No it’s not to see which brother/coach comes out on top. Or to see which commercial will fuel your product craving. Only one word can describe why a theater full of music lovers will be packing it in on Sunday…Beyonce!
February 9th: Phenomenon 2013 – Dallas Contemporary, 9pm. A fabulous, souped-up House Party celebrating DZINE’S “excessive and exuberant” Kustom Kulture aesthetic. Featuring world-renowned House Music DJ Derrick Carter and an over-the-top lowrider car display.

February 23rd: Dallas Brew Bus Tour – Community Beer Company, 11:15am. Join the Community Beer Company for the first ever Dallas Brew Bus! Get an inside look at the area’s booming craft beer scene!
