Here's a quick take on your 10 best entertainment bets in the next 10 days.
1. Restaurant Roundup
2. Steel Magnolias
An additional 2:30 p.m. March 9 performance has been added to this otherwise sold-out Amarillo Little Theatre Mainstage production. Clearly, people love this show more than their luggage.
3. South by San Jac
The annual concert series at The 806 Coffee + Lounge, Golden Light Cantina and Leftwood's will run from March 8 to 23, kicking off with Vanessa Silberman and Carissa Johnson, Bradley Sherrer, Magic Focus and Like Red Giants on March 8; and Fawkes & Hownd, Gaelynn Lea and The AM on March 9. Then, stay tuned for the Onward Indian showcase with Thelma & The Sleaze and Egg Drop Soup on March 10; The Velveteers and Stone Deaf on March 11; Whole Milk on March 12; Tejon Street Corner Thieves with Rock Bottom String Band on March 14; Hubba Hubba, Dillon Cassidy & The Rhythm and J Trial Band on March 15; and Amarugia Ridge Runners on March 16. A $10 special pass is good for discounts and specials at each official show.
4. The Annie Oakley
5. An Evening of Parlor Music
6. Kennedy Davenport
The RuPaul's Drag Race alum will come to slay the game with shows (also featuring Amarillo's top queens) on March 9 and 10 at 212 Club. Even if you've seen the Dancing Diva of Texas on TV, you won't believe the energy in her live shows.
7. Spring Break
Amarillo and Canyon ISDs (and others around the area) will give the kiddos some time off between March 11 and 15. Parents can get a break, too, by taking advantage of a slew of activities at Amarillo Public Library, Amarillo Zoo, Caprock Canyon State Park, Don Harrington Discovery Center and more.
7. The Harlem Globetrotters
8. Doctor Who: Logopolis
Tom Baker goes on his final adventure as the Fourth Doctor in this remastered installment of the classic series, in a one-night-only screening March 13. Opening March 7 is Captain Marvel, with sci-fi thriller Captive State, teen romantic drama Five Feet Apart, Spanish-language comedy sequel No Manches Frida 2 and animated feature Wonder Park scheduled to open March 15.
10. Cowgirls and Cowboys Chuckwagon Dinners
From March 13 to Sept. 15 at Doves Rest Resorts, enjoy Wednesday dinners of brisket, beans, potato salad, fruit, dessert, biscuits and tea, plus cowboy entertainment and history, on the rim of Palo Duro Canyon State Park.
