1) Fort Worth Burger Week Kick-Off Party at Rahr & Sons Brewery

The wait is over! Fort Worth Burger Week kicks into gear this Saturday with the Burger Week Kick-Off Party at Rahr & Sons Brewery, 1pm-3pm. Bring a bunch of friends to this fun kick-off, concert, and party…all for the Tarrant County Meals on Wheels. Score a commemorative Burger Week pint glass, pick out your favorite Fort Worth branded gear, and enjoy the Bluegrass sounds of Salt Creek Band on stage.  It’s the best way to get ready for $5 burgers and next week’s Fort Worth Burger Week!

2) Gutenberg, The Musical at Amphibian

Get out of the summer heat and into the coolness of Amphibian Stage Productions. This is not the story of Gutenberg. This is the story of Bud and Doug.   Gutenberg! The Musical! is going to propel these two into the canon of great American musical writing teams. George and Ira, Rogers and Hammerstein, Bud and Doug.  That’s if the staged reading of their genius new musical touches the hearts and hopes of the Broadway producers in the audience. One accompanist, a ton of trucker hats, and an unlimited amount of enthusiasm are the tools the committed duo will use to convince anyone watching to join them in seeing their dream come true, a Broadway contract. Wanna be a part of the dream? Get on down to the Near Southside and Amphibian Stage!

3) Mimir Festival at TCU’s Pepsico Recital Hall

5) Texas Rangers host Houston Astros

Now that the All-Star break is over, your Texas Rangers jump right back in the hunt with a home series against Western Conference leaders, Houston Astros. It’s a weekend of fun and great baseball. T-Mobile Fireworks on Friday, Juan Gonzalez Bobble Head Night on Saturday, and then the home stand concludes with family favorite, Blue Bell Ice Cream Sunday.

6) WNBA Dallas Wings host Chicago Sky at College Park Center

It’s Christmas in July with WNBA Dallas Wings as they take on the Chicago Sky. 3pm tip-off but get there early for the Coffee Mug giveaway.

7) Live Music Under the Stars

Every weekend is an awesome experience at Levitt Pavilion in Arlington. This weekend is no exception. On Friday, it’s the Queen of Austin Soul, Tameca Jones. The spirit of the singer and story teller is kept alive on Saturday with Dalton Domino on the Levitt stage. The stage is really humming on Sunday when Walt Wilkins & The Mystiqueros hit the stage. His story-telling songs, hard-edged vocals and plaintive guitar have made him a fixture of the Texas music scene. Together since 2007, their sound has been called “highly reminiscent of 1970s country/rock” with quality songwriting and vocal arrangements. Another “Don’t Miss” weekend at The Levitt!
