Real chefs and maniacal cooks
We love us some Cowtown Diner and look forward to Scott Jones’ demonstrations at Taste of Dallas. But we can’t wait to see the Mavs ManiAACs Iron Chef Competition. We know they can eat, but can they cook? DV’s own Arnold Jones puts his judgment to the test deciding on which ManiAAC is a closeted culinary master.

DEETS: Fair Park, 1200 S. Second Ave. Through July 11. $5.

From film to stage, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast will likely be filled with elaborate costumes, fancy makeup and gorgeous sets. Disney spares no expense.

DEETS: Winspear Opera House, 2403 Flora St. Through July 25. $50–$150.

DEETS: The Round-Up Saloon, 3912 Cedar Springs Road. 9 p.m.
