Slide the City is back - and this time it's taking over the Clearfork Bridge between Hulen Street and Bryant Irvin Road.

7. Book of Moron: Opening Night
No, that's not a typo. Performing Arts Fort Worth presents this off-Broadway one-man show. Robert Dubac's show, a follow up to The Male Intellect: An Oxymoron?, which played at McDavid Studio in 2015, blends satire with intelligence. The New York Times says The Book of Moron "crashes head first into the barriers of sex, race, religion, politics and the media. It may be offensive to some but there's laughter for all."
