Three things to do this weekend: eat chili, celebrate St. Paddy’s Day or raise chickens

Dallas already celebrated St. Patrick’s Day this past weekend, but the Selkie Girls are bringing a bit of Ireland to Uncle Calvin’s this Friday, March 17.  The North Texas musicians showcase their Celtic-folk hybrid sound at 8 p.m. Tickets cost $15-$18. Get all the details here.

Interested in raising chickens? John Ramos, of Urban Chicken Inc., will offer tips and sell hens Saturday, March 18 at North Haven Gardens. More information is available here.
