2508 Maple Ave
Dallas, TX 75201

Texas’ Next Top Designer, Inc. has done great things for the Dallas fashion scene. The non-profit organization committed to fostering diverse entrepreneurs by supporting business development for the fashion and aligned industries.

The competition is conducted as a selection process for grant recipients, but the event and those leading up to it are a great way for Dallas fashion-files to show your support of Texas designers. With past winners like Abi Ferrin and Megan Summerville, this isn’t your average design competition.

If you’re looking for something a little less glitzy but no less entertaining, Hard Nights Day (a Beatles tribute band) play the first Friday of every month at Barley House.

15th Annual Bishop’s Gala featuring Comedian & Actor Steve Martin 

Where: Hilton Anatole Hotel, 2201 N. Stemmons Fwy, Dallas, TX, 75207

When: Saturday February 2 @ 6 p.m.

Price: $300

I don’t think I’ve ever heard anyone say, “Ugh. Steve Martin. I can’t stand that guy,” because everyone loves Steve Martin. You might even pay $300 to get a chance to see him live. When it includes a seated dinner and a live action with proceeds going to Catholic Charities of Dallas, it becomes a pretty great way to spend a Saturday night.
