Dawn and Steve Moore, Zoo To Do Event Chairs 2019 (photo: Thomas Garza)

On Thursday, June 13, supporters of the Dallas Zoo gathered for a private party at the Dallas Zoo’s Simmons Safari Base Camp where the details for this year’s exciting Zoo To Do fundraising event were revealed. Servers wandered through the crowd with bites, while guests enjoyed watching the elephants stroll through the Giants of the Savanna habitat and got up-close and personal with several of the Zoo’s residents including a Eurasian eagle owl, African crested porcupine, radiated tortoise, and a friendly pair of flamingos. Kevin Hanrahan, President of the Dallas Zoo’s Board of Directors, welcomed everyone and announced Dawn and Steve Moore as this year’s Event Chairs and their three children, Brett Moore, Blair Raggio, and Brooke Moore as the ZTD2 Co-Chairs. Hanrahan then introduced Darryl Griffin, Executive Vice President Advancement at the Dallas Zoo, who informed attendees that this is the 28th year of Zoo To Do which, for the past four years, has raised over one million dollars to support the Zoo’s mission of Creating a Better World for Animals.

Slated for Saturday, November 2, 2019, and hosted at the Dallas Zoo, guests and patrons of Zoo To Do: Wild At Heart will stroll through the award-winning Giants of the Savanna habitat, sample exquisite dishes from more than 25 of Dallas’s premier chefs and restaurants, and enjoy interactive animal demonstrations and musical entertainment. Following dinner, guests will move to the Wilds of Africa plaza for a live auction featuring rare Zoo experiences, travel and more! Finally, partygoers will dance the night away to music from Emerald City All Stars. Another option is available, perfect for young professionals, called ZTD2 (Zoo To Do 2) and will begin at 9:00 p.m. with a separate ticket price of $150 per person. ZTD2 will feature exclusive chefs, along with an open bar and dancing until midnight to local favorites, the Emerald City All-Stars.

Zoo To Do is a major source of funding for the Dallas Zoo. Proceeds from the event help support the Zoo’s dedication to providing the best animal care, delivering unique education offerings, and furthering its wildlife conservation efforts. Sponsorships range from $7,500 to $150,000. Individual tickets are $750 each and a VIP ticket is $1,500.

Terry Black's BBQ, which is sometimes on one's bucket list for a sojourn to the Austin area.

This isn't Black's BBQ in Lockhart, Texas, like we originally thought, but Terry Black's BBQ. We assume they are related, but the Dallas expansion is based on the one located at:

1003 Barton Springs Road
Austin, TX 78704

A contractor, who will remain anonymous, associated with building out the restaurant couldn't help but gloat a bit. He posted this pic to a 20k member BBQ Facebook forum, of which we are apart. This tipster said,

“Terry Black[‘]s is coming to Deep Ellum. My crew is sawing and tearing out slabs and walls.”

This looks like the lot across from The Common Desk around 2919 Commerce Street [Update: It's not across from The Common Desk, it's the Dallas Comedy House building on Main Street]

Looks like Pecan Lodge may have some competition creeping in.

More updates to come as we learn more and/or details are confirmed.

Update: Here's a photo from the same angle showing more activity. Posted around 3:45pm - 5/21

More Dets: CentralTrack informed of us an article they wrote in April. It looks like this new BBQ spot is coming at expense of Dallas Comedy House' lease. This is bittersweet and we do hope both parties came to an understanding.

As Texans, we may want to keep Austin weird, but even we don’t hold a candle to what you could find in Dallas several weeks ago. Ripley’s Believe It or Not! partnered with Fan Expo Dallas, and the result led to some interesting sites to behold. The traveling museum displayed some of the most unique and strange items that DFW has ever seen.

It has been almost 100 years since the first Believe It or Not! cartoon was first introduced to the public, and Ripley’s still manages to leave viewers in awe today. The founder, Robert Ripley, began it all with his love of traveling. He would share unique things that he had seen on his journeys, but those wonders were often scoffed by disbelievers. So, rather than merely visiting these items, he began to collect and showcase them to audiences back home.

The humble beginnings have now sprouted into a wide array of cartoons, television shows, and museums. Many of us grew up watching the unique items, animals, and people on television. Luckily, a new generation will now be able to experience this as well. The Ripley’s Believe It or Not! series is scheduled to reboot in June. Bruce Campbell will host the show and expose viewers to some of the world’s greatest oddities. The series is expected to air June 9 on the Travel Channel.

Those at Fan Expo Dallas were able to peek into some of Ripley’s collection. Due to FXD being a convention mainly revolving around movies/shows, it was only fitting that Riplye’s brought some of their most notable cinema memorabilia. In fact, the most valuable item in their entire collection is Han Solo’s blaster from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, and lucky fans in at the convention were able to get a glimpse of it. Also, in the Harrison Ford themed display box, was a whip used during the climax of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Several other notable movie props were brought out of the Ripley’s vault for adoring fans. Moviegoers were quick to recognize Michael J Fox’s hoverboard from Back to the Future: Part II and Luke Skywalker’s lightsaber. The lightsaber shared a case with a picture camera from the 1930s. While it seemed to be a strange pairing considering the age difference between the two items, it couldn’t have been more fitting. If you inspected the camera closely, you would find that the flash looks exceptionally similar to the Jedi’s weapon of choice. Due to the film’s low budget, George Lucas had to get creative. However, people with a keen eye will notice that the lightsaber still looks very similar to the camera’s flash accessory and even maintained the same power button!

The opportunity to see these items was definitely unique, but what would Ripley’s be without also bringing along some serious oddities? Their selection was far from disappointing. From ancient torture devices to nature’s blunders, Ripley’s had it covered. The collection included a Vampire killing kit, one of about 30 that the company possesses. Eastern European countries would often sell these items to dimwitted tourists. Some of the kits included garlic, while others went so far as to include a silver bullet and gun in the off-chance that they might happen to encounter a werewolf. You can never be too careful.

The pinnacle of the exhibit stood in the middle of the Ripley’s popup museum area, a 125lb. wonder. A giant ball of hair, measuring over 4’ tall, was on display in its full glory to the amusement and disgust of the curious onlookers. The hairball was started by a barber that happened to be a huge Ripley’s fan. With the permission of his customers, he began to collect and assemble the clippings from his shop. Since the hairball’s humble beginnings, it has now grown into a massive interactive exhibit. That’s right, we said interactive. People who want to be a part of Ripley’s history have the opportunity to have their own hair added to the structure. There’s no reason to worry about a bad hair day when your beautiful locks become permanently enshrined in the Ripley’s collection.

For more Ripley’s Believe It or Not! news, facts, and items take a look at their site and be sure to follow them on twitter @Ripleys! Also, if you act fast, you can use the code "FANEXPO" to save up to 50% off Ripley's Believe It or Not! in Grand Prairie. Just enter the code when you are purchasing tickets before it expires on June 18th!
