From virtual film festivals to tea pairings and wine tastings, these are the best things to do in Dallas this weekend.
Sundance at Texas Theatre
Sundance Film Festival has gone virtual this year, but Dallas’ iconic Texas Theatre will also be hosting some indoor and drive-in screenings this weekend. From headliner Judas and the Black Messiah (starring Daniel Kaluuya) to The Blazing World from Fort Worth-native Carlson Young, you’ll still be able to enjoy some in-person aspects of the acclaimed festival right in Dallas.
Virtual Denton Black Film Festival
From January 27 to February 1, the Denton Black Film Festival is also taking place virtually this year. Narrative features, documentaries, and shorts will all be screened online throughout the week. You can purchase a festival pass or tickets for individual screenings here.
A Celebration of Tea at The French Room
It’s National Tea Month and The French Room is celebrating with a tea pairing on Thursday at noon. In collaboration with Pamela Miller (owner of Zakti Tea), the event will feature a four-course curated menu from executive pastry chef Ruben Torano. Tea sandwiches, sweets, and scones will each be paired with four kinds of teas. Tickets cost $75, and also include a glass of champagne.
Judgement of Texas Wine Tasting Social
Head to The Ranch at Las Colinas this Thursday at 6 pm for the Judgement of Texas Wine Tasting Social. For $70 per person, you’ll try and take notes at 16 wine tasting stations and cast your vote for your favorite at the end of the night. There will appetizers and palate cleansers between tastings at the outdoor pavilion as well. At the end, the top wines will be announced and attendees will receive a certificate from Texas Agricultural Commissioner Sid Miller and Texas Governor Greg Abbott. Reserve a spot by calling 972-506-7262.
