Texas Independent Film Network: America's Parking Lot

The Texas Stadium parking lot, which used to be home to the Dallas Cowboys' legions of tailgaters prior to the team's move to Arlington, Texas, is what's referenced in this documentary's title. The film, which premiered at SXSW Film 2012, looks at the close-knit bonds among the tailgater community.

  • Salon Vanguard

    Ah, the perfect date! It's Salvage Vanguard Theatre's posh fundraiser, with intimate performances by the Golden Arm Trio's Graham Reynolds, world-class violinist Roberto Paolo Riggio, author Spike Gillespie, and a string trio from Church of the Friendly Ghost; with hosts in period costume (think: Marie Antoinette) conducting parlor games; with a specialty cocktail from the spirited laboratory of Hank Cathey; with the tastiest noms you can imagine; and all of it in that venerable manse known as Eponymous Garden. Tue., Nov. 13, 8pm. 1202 Garden. $45 ($60 for two)

  • Women & Their Work: Violent Delights

    Ann Wood's fantastic art incorporates two- and three-dimensional pieces – entire taxidermied deer, for instance – into a rococo outcropping of landscape that references topiaries, floral bouquets, and pastry decorating. But, note: The death and decay lurking below the surface or hovering nearby is, you might say, more than just the icing on this complex cake. Recommended. Through Nov. 17.
