You only have about an hour to decide, so just take my word for it, OK?
Start the weekend out by saying goodbye to Rabbi Oren Hayon of Temple Emanu-El fame. Hayon has been on staff for seven years at the temple and endeared himself to me by promptly returning a phone call a couple of months ago. It doesn’t take much, people, really. The farewell Shabbat starts at 6:15 p.m.
Sure, X-men might be debuting its critically acclaimed prequel this weekend, but don’t let that stop you from hitting up the Preston Royal Library for a free screening of Tron 2: Legacy at 2:30 p.m. For all those life-long Dallasites, the Forest Lane cruise scene is a picking up again — for one night at least. Get a full serving of nostalgia with Forest Lane Cruise-In, which kicks off at 7 p.m. and runs until the wee hours of the morning, just like the good ol’ days. The event promises ice-cold Lone Star beer, local music, and around 500 cars for only $5. And who can put a price on time-travel? RSVP on Facebook.
Although I readily partake in athletic competition, I’ve always enjoyed the fine art of lounging as well. If you’re looking to achieve this delicate balance for your child on Sunday, then look no further. The JCC is hosting a kid’s triathlon at 7 a.m. with plenty of activity to get that pint-sized heart racing. Settle things down in the evening with a combination concert/ice-cream social event at Preston Hollow Presbyterian Church, 6 p.m. in Jubilee Hall.
