Labor Day Weekend Events: 3 Things To Do In Dallas

DALLAS, TX — Looking for a way to make the most of your Labor Day? We’ve got you covered. The Patch Calendar is chock full of awesome events happening around Dallas over the holiday weekend.

Crack up at a comedy show, decide whether wine or beer pairs better with cheese or feed a penguin at the Dallas World Aquarium!

After you’re done checking out these local Dallas events, learn how to post your own event to the Patch Calendar.

Laugh it up over Labor Day weekend with the whole family at Dallas Comedy House. The early show on Saturday evening has plenty of age-appropriate jokes (read: no bad language or overt sexual themes) that adults will enjoy as well. Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door.

Beer enthusiasts and amateur sommeliers will both enjoy this beverage showdown at Scardello Artisan Cheese. Attendees can sample different beers and wines in conjunction with cheese to determine which pairing is superior. Tickets are $40 per person and include five rounds of wine, beer and cheese to enjoy.

Bring the kids to the Dallas World Aquarium over the holiday weekend for an up-close-and-personal visit with their favorite aquatic creatures. The penguin feeding, which starts promptly at 4 p.m., is one of the most popular attractions at the aquarium. Why?

Former Texas A&M Coach Gene Stallings Suffers Stroke at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport

Former football coach and player Gene Stallings suffered a stroke Monday morning at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

Stallings, who was the head coach at Texas A&M University from 1965 to 1971, was going to his ‘Legendary Coaches Event’ with former Auburn coach Pat Dye.

According to Dye’s Twitter, Stallings will be rescheduling this event “as soon as doctors release him.”

Stallings was an assistant under legendary Cowboys head coach Tom Landry during Super Bowl VII; he also served as the head coach of the St. Louis/Phoenix Cardinals (1986-1989), and the University of Alabama (1990-1996).

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney is considered a part of Stallings’ coaching tree.

Stallings’ condition is unclear, though he is said to be in good spirits.

This story will be updated as more details are released.
