Beasts and Bunnies
What: McKinney Avenue Contemporary showcases the work of four artists who use animals — each in a way that is different from the others — to explore nature, culture, and behavior.
Why: We could stare at Helen Altman’s “Goldfish” all day.
When: Thru Feb 12. Wed.-Sat., 11 a.m.-9 p.m.
Where: 3120 McKinney Ave. (214-953-1212). Suggested donation, $5.
What: Short for “best enchiladas ever,” the new quick-bite spot serves simple Tex-Mex faves (burritos, tacos) with dozens of fresh and organic toppings, fillings, cheeses, and sauces.
Why: Not-so-fast-food sips, including margaritas, beer, and sangria.
When: Daily, 11 a.m.-10 p.m.
Where: 202 W. Davis St., Oak Cliff (214-941-1233).
Leading Ladies Spectacular
What: Grab a player’s card at Ralph Lauren in Highland Park Village, score stamps from participating boutiques (DVF, Scoop, Tory Burch, Vince, etc.), and turn it in at Chanel for a free luxury gift bag, cocktails, and bites by local foodie star Lisa Garza.
Why: Ten percent of sales benefits various charities; Genesis Women’s Shelter is accepting gently worn accessories, shoes, and handbags at the complimentary valet.
When: Tues., 6:30-9 p.m.
Where: Highland Park Village, Preston Rd., at Mockingbird Ln.
Super Bowl Spa Specials
What: Lose your Ritz-Carlton Spa rookie status and take 20 percent off any service Monday through Thursday, including the limited-time tight end body treatment (increases blood flow to make skin taut), first down facial, and quarterback sack sports wrap.
