Tim Burton's 'Alice' inspires a wonderland of family-friendly options in the Dallas Arts District tonight.
PAST AND FUTURE ALICE: It's an Extra-Mad Hatter party at the Dallas Museum of Art for Late Nights tonight as Lewis Carroll and Tim Burton have their magic hands in all the fun. Multiple works inspired by Carroll's Alice will be performed, Alice in Wonderland (1933) will screen and tech-smart artists will expose their secrets. Appearances by a Zound Sounds teen choir, actress Lydia Mackay, DJ G and others seal the night in honor of Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland update. You've got to scour the full schedule. 6PM-12AM. $10 or less.
EASTERN-MOST TABLE: Tonight is possibly the only night ever to tea party-hop in the Arts District. The Crow Collection offers snacks and sips from all across Asia, pairing Oolong tea with Chinese music on live harp and green tea with a Japanese tea ceremony. Oh, and you'll be able to sample the awe-inspiring Red Flower teas. Kids can make origami teacups; adults can stick around for bubble tea and karaoke. Check out the list of activities here. It's all free. 6PM-12AM.
AFTER PARTY: If you won't plan to stay at the above shindigs until midnight or need to grab a more substantial dinner nearby, read on. Our Annie Potasznik has a story on Geisha House in Uptown, a new sushi joint that boasts 42 fancy Japanese sakes (and a sake sommelier to help naviagate) on the drink menu. Late-night food options run until 12AM.
