It's Almost the Weekend...

The Man in the Yellow Hat and his endearing little friend George are coming to Dallas to celebrate the DVD release of the little monkey’s big screen debut.

Valley View Mall is hosting a day of Curious George activities starting at noon on Sunday (9/24), and the first 60 kids to register can audition for a voiceover role in a future animated production by Universal Studios.

Billed as a “Curiosity and Creativity Day,” the event promises face painting, coloring and promotions galore. Check it out, if you’re curious…

Also this weekend, Desperados restaurant, a Greenville Avenue Tex-Mex favorite, is having a 30th anniversary fiesta. A nominal donation gets you in the fiesta tent this Saturday, where the food will be free and free-flowing all night.

The event benefits the Love for Kids organization, which helps to serve some 264 local organizations that assist children in need.

Special guests will include former Dallas Cowboy Tony Hill (and friends). Hill will also be stopping by our friend Tania Foster’s fundraiser for Dallas Is Love on October 3. (See below)

Finally, the Desperados have planned a taco-eating contest featuring local media personalities. Dallas Child wasn’t asked to participate, and I think we’re all ok with that. But go see which of your favorite news anchors, reporters and columnists take the challenge and which ones are left with guacamole on their faces. Do it for the kids.

Have a great weekend!
