[The half dozen]

Illustration by Cecilia Secaira

1. Will Clark takes the stage at Adair’s Saloon with bluesy songs and stellar covers. If only his opening act were a Meriwether. March 29. Adair’s Saloon. Free.

2. Art, music, food and a pet-parade. The Deep Ellum Arts Festival wants for nothing. Grab a burger or adult shake at Twisted Root while you’re there. Deep Ellum. April 1-3. Free.

3. Holy Week provides the perfect occasion to visit Titian’s Entombment of Christ at the Kimbell, a piece on loan from the Museo del Prado in Madrid. Kimbell Art Museum. On view until June 12. Free.

4. Witness real live TED talks (or at least incipient versions) for a mere fraction of the conference cost. At the very least, the TEDxSMU Live Auditions will beat the YouTube versions that distract you from Lit. Trad. essays with the latest research-backed life hacks. Granada Theater. March 30. $23.

5. You’re no ordinary, bluebonnet posing Texan. Go bigger, go better by posing amidst the 500,000 flowers of Dallas Blooms. The event also includes bronze sculptures of famous people like Claude Monet, Abe Lincoln and William Shakespeare. Dallas Arboretum. Through April 10. $15.

6. Make a prayerful Good Friday with either the Stations of the Cross or The Lord’s Passion with Bishop Kevin Farrell at the Cathedral. It’s easy to DART and the short walk makes for added penance. Cathedral Shrine of Our Lady of Gaudalupe. March 25. Free.
