Diablos drag you to Hell
Before the costumes and the candy hits the fan, there’s Hellfest 2011 to get through. The Dallas Diablos host the annual rugby tournament with men’s and women’s teams from all over the country competing for top honors. Teams be warned. The Diablos say “in Hellfest, no one can hear you scream.”

She can dance
Judith Jamison is kind of a big deal. She danced with Baryshnikov, won an Emmy and went from being the principal dancer of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater to being its artistic director. She appears for one night as part of the Brinker International Forum. The Kennedy Center honoree and National Medal of Arts winner likely has some great stories to tell. And we’re all ears.

DEETS: Winspear Opera House,
