Spring in the air, so home & garden shows bloom

The weather has been gorgeous, which means two things: 1. Time to start working on your Speedo body; and 2. time to do a little spring cleaning, from planting new flowers to refreshing that tired furniture. Two events this weekend — one in Cowtown, one in Big D — provide ample opportunity for you to discover lovely new works of art to enliven your decor, as well as gardening tips, antique to invest in and more. Take your pick!

Fort Worth Show of Antiques and Art, Will Rogers Memorial Center, 3400 Burnett-Tandy, Fort Worth
Friday–Saturday. $8.

37th Annual Texas Home and Garden Show, Dallas Market Hall, 2200 N. Stemmons Freeway.

Texas Bear Round Up returns for 21st annual celebration of men

If you’re out and about starting Thursday and notice a lot more beefy, furry, friendly guys than normal around the gayborhood, don’t worry that hibernation has ended … or that The Revenant is filming a sequel. Nope, it’s just the 21th annual Texas Bear Round Up. The Dallas Bears’ TBRU gathers thousands of bears, otters, wolves, polar bears and their admirers (aka “chasers”) for four days of fun, fur and frolic. Among the attractions are parties at the two host hotels, the BearDance and Mr. TBRU Contest, but there’s a little something for everyone. So be nice and say hello — they won’t bite … hard.
