Lang Lang
Lang Lang plays only one night with FWSO.

WED • 25 – Thistle Hill’s last needlepoint exhibit was successful enough for them to bring it back. More than 60 craftspeople created the pieces in A Needlepoint Love Story Chapter II for every occasion imaginable. There’s a champagne reception for the stitchers on opening night tonight, but you can go during the rest of the run and save yourself some cash. The exhibit runs today thru Sun at 1509 Pennsylvania Av, FW. Reservations are $75 for the champagne reception, $10 for regular admission. Call 817-336-2344.


THURS • 26 – Fort Worth Weekly continues to sponsor an ever-expanding roster of events in the community. The latest is Stir, the first of what looks to be a monthly cocktail competition among bartenders. Barkeeps from Bird Café, The Republic Street Bar, Thirteen Pies, and The Usual will try to mix the most delicious concoctions with Double Cross Vodka. The event is at 6pm at Bar Louie, 2973 W 7th St, FW. Cover charge is $10. Call 817-321-9700.



FRI • 27 – A creative director at Marvel Comics, Bill Rosemann comes to UNT to lecture on what superheroes can teach us. While he’s here, you may want to ask whether it might not be just a tad ridiculous for Marvel to have its future movie releases scheduled all the way into 2019. The talk is at 7pm at UNT Auditorium, 1401 W Hickory St, Denton. Admission is $5-10.


SAT • 28 – Love them or hate them, recitals by the pianist Lang Lang are always an event. He’s stopping in with Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra for only one night to play one of his signature pieces, Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto. It’s part of a Russian-themed gala concert with music by Glinka and Rachmaninov on the bill as well. The concert is at 7pm at Bass Performance Hall, 555 Commerce St, FW. Tickets are $20-85. Call 817-665-6000.


SUN • 1 – There are so many races connected with the Cowtown Marathon that three days are needed to run them all. However, that just leaves more chances for you to participate as a runner, whether you want to try only the 5K or feel ready to tackle the 50K ultramarathon. The race is sponsored by Miller Lite, though we wouldn’t recommend you using the beverage to rehydrate mid-race. The event runs Fri-Sun at Will Rogers Memorial Center, 3401 W Lancaster Av, FW. Registration is $25-140. Call 817-207-0224.


SAT • 2 – A physician by trade, Arthur Conan Doyle was committed to getting the science right in his Sherlock Holmes stories, but he made errors anyway because of a helter-skelter creative process that sometimes had him finishing the stories on the train to his publisher to drop off manuscripts. The Perot Museum looks at the science behind these stories in The International Exhibit of Sherlock Holmes, which runs thru May 21 at 2201 N Field St, Dallas. Admission is $ 10-15. Call 214-428-5555.


TUES • 3 – March is National Youth Art Month, and as it does each year, Arlington Museum of Art is holding its Youth Art Month exhibit, with works in various media on display by students from Arlington Independent School District. The show runs thru Mar 29 at 201 W Main St, Arlington. Admission is free. Call 817-275-4600.
