Do we smell ‘Tuna’ in Dallas? Yup, at Theatre 3

It’s Texas’ most iconic comedy (if you don’t count the “dream” seasons on Dallas). Greater Tuna, a delight with two actors playing all the residents of a sleepy West Texas town, deserves its place in the pantheon on regional humor. Terry Dobson (usually behind the scene playing music) and Dwight Sandell take on the roles made famous by Joe Sears and Jaston Williams.

Theatre 3’s downstairs space
2900 Routh St. in the Quadrangle.
Through April 27.

Big Texas Beer Fest returns to Fair Park

We’ve been hot on craft breweries for a while now, especially since the boom in local beers in the last two years. So the return of the Big Texas Beer Fest to Fair Park this Saturday is reason to lift a glass. More than 85 breweries will pour hundreds of beers, including specialties from local favorites like Lakewood (its Till & Toil is excellent!), Peticolas, Community and more, as well as national and international brands like Stella Artois and Corona. You can’t buy tickets at the door, so order online now. And let the suds flow!

DEETS: Fair Park Automotive Building,
1010 First Ave. 2–6:30 p.m.
(VIP admission at 1 p.m.).
