5 things to do in Oak Cliff this December

Dec. 1

Roaring ’20s party

Celebrate flapper style and be among the first to see inside (and party at) the newly renovated Eagle Ford School at The Well Community’s annual fundraiser, Recovery Live. Famous as the elementary that the outlaw Bonnie Parker attended, the 1923 school is due to become a historic landmark because of its significance as part of the Eagle Ford, Cement City and Ledbetter communities. The 7:30 p.m. event supports the faith-based nonprofit’s mission to serve those who face challenges from severe mental illnesses. Cost: $75.
