Appreciate some art Saturday at Mighty Fine Arts, which is throwing an opening reception for a show from Chaitra Garrick Linehan and Jen Rose. The gallery’s Web site has samples of their work.

Target Zoofari Days at the Dallas Zoo starts Saturday with half-price admission and discounted food and drink items.

Dallas-based fashion designer Abi Ferrin is having her annual sample sale at Southside on Lamar starting Saturday. Deep discounts on designer dresses. See what I did there? Alliteration.

If sample sales are even too steep for your recessionary budget, get up super early Saturday and hit the House of Dang’s garage sale at their new digs on Tyler.

Bring the kids to the Hampton-Illinois Branch Library, where Dallas-based children’s author Dan Gremminger will be reading his book, Deep River Dark at 1 p.m. Saturday.
