Treasure map
GuideLive and MapQuest - Two helpful resources for those in Dallas or those who plan to visit: GuideLive is a huge directory of metroplex restaurants and clubs (with reviews of most) plus a calendar of upcoming concerts and other events. And, if you need to know how to get to your evening's destination, MapQuest can provide you with detailed driving directions so you won't get lost.

Premiere Video - My fave local video store at 5400 East Mockingbird Lane (one block east of Central Expressway), they have a large selection of unrated films, foreign films, old movies, plus things from every other genre. Open 'til 10 p.m.
Roller coaster
Six Flags Over Texas - Huge amusement park in Arlington, Texas (20 minutes' drive west of Dallas) with terrific roller coasters, tons of other rides, musical shows, tacky knickknacks, and food. They also own a water park next door called Hurricane Harbor.
