What are your favorite venues in Dallas?

I love going to Third Fridays (at Dallas Museum of Art, the Nasher, and Crow Collection). You can visit all the museums, enjoy a glass of wine, hear music, see an outdoor movie, and run into your friends while strolling around. These are magical evenings! Also, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra (if they play Beethoven or anything from the 20th century, I drop everything and go), Dallas Children's Theater (I don't have kids, but I still love the humor and magic of the shows). I love going to Rangers games. I see lots of concerts at American Airlines Center, Verizon Theatre and other venues.
