Thanks to all military servicemen and women on this Veterans Day. The Washington Post has this story of mothers who have made a trip to Section 60 of the Arlington National Cemetery every week since their sons died.
Tonight, there are a few options. Rihanna makes it back around to the American Airlines Center after canceling her last Dallas tour stop due to illness. (This is the rescheduled date from April.) She’s joined by Miami duo GTA and rapper 2 Chainz, who spent the weekend infringing on a dumb copyright law at Leonardo DiCaprio’s 39th birthday party in New York. I can’t believe Leo is 39. Anyway, you can still get tickets to the Rihanna show online. Drop by the bar at Stampede 66 for tacos and drinks before the show.
Elsewhere, support your local theater artists with a staged reading of two new plays-in-progress at the Margo Jones Theatre in Fair Park. Workshops and feedback are helpful (understatement) before mounting any sort of full production. Theatre Three’s Bruce Coleman, who also happened to teach me theater in high school, will present the first act of his play Mythical Beastie, while Ben Schroth presents Coin in Tongue. After, you’re going to the Amsterdam for Monday night jazz. Of course.
For more do with your night, go here.
