The Shorthorn is back with our weekly virtual To-Do List, now solely featuring stay-at-home events.
This week’s list includes working out for puppies, a Cinco de Mayo happy hour and a digital drag fest.
Here is your virtual To-Do List.
America’s Official Cinco de Mayo Happy Hour
Despite social distancing, Cinco de Mayo must go on. To celebrate, Dallas will virtually host “America’s Official Cinco de Mayo Happy Hour,” presented by Margarita Mile.
Chefs Dean Fearing and Julian Rodarte will host the live special via Visit Dallas’ YouTube channel and bring in some of their restaurant friends from the Margarita Mile, a collection of the best and brightest margaritas in Dallas.
All you need to do to participate is tune in with a beverage in hand 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday.
Dallas Arboretum virtual display
Throughout the month of May, the Dallas Arboretum will offer a virtual display of its gardens on its website.
You can enjoy weekly updated images from the arboretum and virtually stroll through the gardens by watching the video “Experience The Beauty of the Dallas Arboretum in Full Summer Bloom.”
The arboretum website also offers monthly gardening Tips and Tricks via its Gardening Resources and Tips page.
Digital Drag Fest
Producer Entertainment Group has extended the Digital Drag Fest 2020 to May 15 due to popular demand.
The 30-minute shows will feature singing, cooking, comedy, lip-syncing and other dramatic entertainment from various drag queens and LGBTQ entertainers including Miz Cracker and Latrice Royale.
Each show is limited to 100 households, and tickets run $10 per house. Tickets can be purchased here.
Pump it up for pups
Every Saturday in May, Home at Last Dog Rescue will be hosting a virtual workout session to benefit dogs in need.
After purchasing a $10 ticket, you’ll receive a link to join the private Facebook group where the workout session will be held live at 10 a.m. Saturday’s workout will be led by instructors from Orangetheory Fitness, and each week will bring a new instructor.
If you can’t make it live, no worries. Each workout will be available until the next week’s session.
Tickets can be purchased here.
