Okay, so that post-Super Bowl parade everyone was hoping for isn’t going to happen, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of amazingness coming Dallas’ way this February. Specifically, these 11 things:

[box_dark]Jan 29 – Feb 7[/box_dark] Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo
Will Rogers Memorial Center

This is Texas. In Texas we like barnyard animals, beer, BBQ, carnivals, cotton candy, giant turkey legs, bull riding… and conveniently, all of these things are located in one spot, and that spot is the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo.

[box_dark]Feb 1, Sun[/box_dark] Super Bowl watch party
Henderson Tap House

Beer, pizza, drink specials, and the big game coming at you on a big ol’ flatscreen from every angle in full surround sound. What more do you need?

Granada Theatre

An even BIGGER screen, comfortable seating, and concert-like sound await you at the Granada Theatre for the Super Bowl. The screen is so big, you might be able to detect the deflation in the Patriots’ balls.

[box_dark]Feb 6, Fri[/box_dark] Katt Williams
Verizon Theatre

Katt Williams is bringing his… unique comedy stylings to the Verizon Theatre, and all you need to bring is your ability to laugh uproariously. Oh, and a ticket.

[box_dark]Feb 7, Sat[/box_dark] Hot Chocolate 15k/5k
Fair Park – Automobile Building

If you are going to run, you might as well run towards chocolate… a wise person probably should have once said. 14,000+ other crazies will be running with you, so make a new friend, drink some hot chocolate, and help benefit the Ronald McDonald House.

[box_dark]Feb 7 – 8[/box_dark] Dallas Comic Con Fan Days
Irving Convention Center

Comics, sci-fi, horror, anime, and gaming converge at the Irving Convention Center. A true geeky paradise will await all who enter. The special guest stars are plentiful, and will include folks from Arrow, Dr. Who, Star Trek, and The Princess Bride.

[box_dark]Feb 14, Sat[/box_dark] Dallas Blues Festival
Verizon Theatre

If you don’t have red hot plans for Valentine’s Day, then come on out for the 11th Annual Dallas Blues Festival and celebrate singles awareness day by singing the blues. Mel Waiters, Clarence Carter, Latimore and many more will be there awaiting you.

[box_dark]Feb 14, Sat[/box_dark] OCarnivale Masquerade Ball
The Kessler

There will be a well-stocked Cajun buffet, live music by Club Wood and Icehouse, and plenty of good times, whether you’re bringing a date or looking for one.

[box_dark]Feb 16, Mon[/box_dark] FT33 Guest Chef Series

Once a month, culinary genius Matt McCallister brings in a different genius to helm his kitchen. This month, it happens to be Evan and Sarah Rich from Rich Table in San Francisco. You don’t want to miss it.

[box_dark]Feb 20, Fri[/box_dark] Nine Band Brewing opening
9 Prestige Circle

There aren’t a ton of reasons to go up to Allen, but there’s at least one now. Nine Band Brewing is officially opening its doors and will be pouring some great brews. A pale ale, summer wheat, Kölsch, Hefeweizen, and barley wine await you. Head brewer Jack Sparks is Texas-born-and-raised and works his southern roots into some of the brews.

[box_dark]Feb 27-28[/box_dark] The Avett Brothers
Southside Ballroom

The Avett Brothers are so nice, you get to see them twice. They will be playing on consecutive nights at The Southside Ballroom, showing off their album, Magpie and the Dandelion.
