Terribly terrorizing (and terrific) tales
Oct. 31 and Nov. 1, 7 p.m. All our neighborhood’s most glorious ghouls and ghosts are sure to make an appearance at this spook-studded event — The Bath House Cultural Center at White Rock Lake plays host to this annual reading of eerie holiday tales in honor of Halloween and Day of the Dead. This year the folks from the Dallas Storytelling Guild share their stories, which hail from many cultures and include traditional folktales, family and personal stories, cowboy poetry, tall tales, and outright lies so intriguing the Lady of the Lake might just emerge from her pond for a listen. Bath House is located at 521 E. Lawther.
BOO Who? Don’t cry! Halloween’s not over yet.
Oct. 31, 8 p.m.-1 a.m. Last week they had a party for the kids. Now it’s time for the all-adult Halloween Party at the East Dallas Fraternal Order of Eagles #3108. It’s just $10 at the door and proceeds benefit the Cancer Fund in support of the Lance Armstrong Cancer Foundation. FOE is located at 8500 Arturo. For more info, send the hosts an e-mail.
Nov. 1-end of month. It's always a good time to shoe shop, right? This time, pick up a pair for a child in need (you really should get yourself a pair while you're at it, in the name of convenience, of course). This month marks Chacon Auto's first annual shoe-drive benefiting Shoes for Orphan Souls. Help Chacon make a difference in the lives of at-risk and orphan children throughout the world by dropping off a pair of new shoes at any of their eight locations. In our neighborhood, there is a drop off point at 11800 E. Northwest Highway.
DON'T FORGET DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME: Fall back Sunday morning!
