It’s shaping up into a very DARTable weekend. We’ve got crafts than can float, a boy who can fly, and a bona fide Eagle. Are we missing anything? Let’s jump in:
Friday, July 21
It’s the third Friday of the month, so that means ’til Midnight at the Nasher is happening tonight. As always, there will be a live outdoor concert with great local talent and a film screening. There are also social media scavenger hunts, progressive tours, and, of course, the greatness of the Nasher collection. Wolfgang Puck Catering offers bar services, snacks and tacos, which are pretty great, too. Bryce takes the stage at 7 p.m., and the film – 2016’s Sing Street – starts at 9 p.m. It’s free! Take DART Rail to St. Paul Station or catch the D-Link to get there.

The DFW Boat Expo features the latest deals on the newest models and brands of boats and boating equipment. It’s a great event if you’d like to own a boat, but don’t have a fortune just laying around. The expo is at Dallas Market Hall, a short walk from Market Center Station or right on Bus Route 749.
Former Eagle and Grammy-winning solo artist Don Henley will celebrate his 70th birthday tonight at the American Airlines Center. The one-of-a-kind event will span the living legend’s entire catalog, ranging from his stellar output with the Eagles to his long solo career. Henley will be joined by several “very special guests” – which promises some unexpected delights. The AAC is served by Victory Station.
There will be a gardening demo at the Farmers Branch Market this weekend, along with the walkway of nearly 40 vendors in the market, selling everything from produce and meats to eggs, artisan foods and crafts. The demo will feature Dallas County Master Gardeners Lee Alexander taking the stage at 11:30 a.m. The Market will be open from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at The Grove @ Mustang Crossing this, and every, Saturday, through the end of October.
Sunday, July 23
It’s the last performance of Finding Neverland – an incredible musical that details the creation of Peter Pan. It begins with playwright J.M. Barrie struggling for inspiration. When he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother, he is spellbound by the boys’ make-believe adventures. Note: no children under age 4 are permitted. The performance takes place at Winspear Opera House, a short walk from Peal/Arts District Station or the D-Link.
