As usual, there are a lot of fun things going on around Grapevine this coming weekend – and bonus, many of them are indoors where we can escape the heat!
ET at Palace Arts Center – What child of the 80’s doesn’t love that adorable alien and the kid whose heart he stole? I don’t think I will get tired of this movie ever. We went to see it when it was re-released on its 20th anniversary (which has been a few years ago). Now, the PAC gives us another walk down memory lane.
Grapevine Vintage Railroad – This isn’t unique to this weekend, but definitely worth considering. Take a trip to the stockyards, have a late lunch in Ft. Worth and then come back home.
Live music – As usual, there is plenty going on with live music around town. My picks:
- Tolbert’s – On Friday it’s the Beatles’ tribute band A Hard Day’s Night, and on Saturday it’s the Eagles tribute band Fastlane. Music starts at 9 p.m. and $5 cover begins at 8. Would not be a bad idea to have dinner there before.
- Rockfish (Southlake) – This is not Grapevine, but close enough, and I highly recommend the night’s act, Robert Gotcher.
- Tap-In – On Friday, Back to Blue (Rock/Blues), and on Saturday, Featherhead (Rock/Alt Rock)
SummerBlast fireworks over Lake Grapevine – Watch from any number of lakeside locations. My favorite – Glass Cactus at the Gaylord.
Summer Nights in historic downtown – Head to Main Street for food and fun.
What else is going on? What do you have planned?
