This weekend: book drive, workouts, gallery openings, bachelors

Artwork by Adriana Martinez

Want to try this fitness boot camp we wrote about in the January Advocate? There’s a free one this weekend. Bring gently used books to Lake Cliff Park at noon Saturday in exchange for a workout with Jacob Waters. He will donate the books to the Dallas Public Library, which uses them in fund-raising book sales.

Speaking of workouts, an All-Tri informational meeting is at 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

Artist Adriana Martinez opens an exhibit, “Available Insights”, at Mighty Fine Arts Saturday from 7-9 p.m. The show “offers a compelling respite from the chronic assault of media saturated life.”

Those arty brothers, Daniel and Manuel Padilla, have consolidated their galleries, and they’re throwing a party from 7-11 p.m. Saturday to celebrate. Their new 1,800-square-foot gallery is at 829 W. Davis.

All the single ladies: the Bishop Arts Theater Center is auctioning off bachelors in a fundraiser Saturday.

Spiral Diner’s soup-cooking class is Monday.

Also on Monday, Smoke chef Tim Byres is cooking at the Cedars Social. This vodka supper kicks off a week of Super Bowl dinner parties at the hip new joint near the Dallas police HQ. Tickets are $125 and include Russian Standard Vodka cocktails paired with small plates. To make reservations, contact 214-928-7700 supperbowl@thecedarssocial.com. Also cooking Feb. 1-4 are Bradley Ogden, Matt Macallister, John Tesar and Tiffany Derry.
