Broadway’s Guys & Dolls at Fair Park | Dallas Summer Musical of July

24 Jul

From July 19 – July 31 catch Guys & Dolls at Fair Park’s Music Hall! Guys and Dolls is presented by Dallas Summer Musicals and is appropriate for all ages! Guys and Dolls is based on two short stories by Damon Runyon- “The Idyll of Miss Sarah Brown” and “Blood Pressure” and a book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows.

Guys and Dolls is a romantic musical comedy set in New York City. The vivid cast of characters brings the story to life on stage with fun and catchy songs, lyrics by Frank Loesser, that bring the spirit of Broadway right into the heart of Dallas!

The organizer of the oldest permanent floating crap game, Nathan Detroit, makes an interesting bet with Sky Masterson who is traveling alone to Havana and believes he could get any woman he wants to company him. Nathan makes an interesting Bet with Sky that he’s sure he’ll win. Nathan proposes that Sky take a ‘doll’ chosen by Nathan to dinner in Havana. He bets that Sky can’t make the next girl he sees fall in love with him. Turns out the lucky contestant happens to be Miss Sarah Brown of the Save-a-Soul Mission. As soon as Nathan chooses virginal Sergeant Sarah Brown, Sky’s confidence fades. Meanwhile, Nate’s ‘doll’ (Miss Adelaide), who is the main attraction at the Hot Box nightclub, only has marriage on her mind after lying to her mother for about 14 years about being married with kids. She is suffering from a psychosomatic cold after dealing with the long overdue engagement. Nathan is in need of $1000 and relies on winning this bet to rent out Gilmore’s Garage in order to maintain the “Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game in New York”. Find out if Sky gets the girl or if Nathan gets the garage when you go see Guys and Dolls this week!

KRLD Restaurant Week 2011 Now Taking Reservations

24 Jul

In less than a month KRLD Restaurant Week returns to DFW!! The annual event gives you the opportunity to enjoy a three-course prix fixe dinner for only $35/person at some of the top most expensive restaurants around town. The package does not include tax, tip and drinks but just dinner. KRLD Restaurant Week will run from August 15 – August 21. You can select from about 125 restaurants. Over half of the restaurants will extend the deal for about two or three weeks, like through August 28th and some til September 4th. Some restaurants are even offering a Restaurant Week preview the weekend right before it officially starts, which will take place Fri. Aug. 12th through Sun. Aug. 14th.

Once you recognize some of the restaurants offering the deal you’ll understand that you can’t beat $35, especially if it’s a three-course meal!! Also the restaurants aren’t all in one particular city or area but stretch from Downtown and Uptown to Addison out to Ft. Worth!

KRLD Restaurant Week also benefits two of the metroplex’s major non-profits, the North Texas Food Bank of Dallas and Lena Pope Home of Fort Worth. For each prix fixe dinner purchased, the participating restaurants will make a $7 donation to either of the charities. From what I understand, some reservations can be made online while others you may have to call in. It’s not too early to make your reservations either! In fact, reservations began on Monday, July 18th! This may not be the Taste of Dallas but it can be your formal air conditioned version of it. For all you steak lovers and hardcore carnivores there are some pretty high ranked meaty restaurants participating in Restaurant Week 2011. Don’t miss out on this annual event coming up next month! Make your reservations soon and tell ‘em DFW Happenings sent ya!
