FRIDAY: At the tender age of 12 he shared a stage with Bob Dylan. Since then, he’s graced the cover of Rolling Stone and Down Beat and been profiled in the New York Times and Wall Street Journal —  the now 29-year-old Derek Trucks takes the stage Friday at the Granada.

SATURDAY: The Lady of the Lake 18-mile relay and party is Saturday starting at 8 a.m. at Winfrey Point. I just received a note via e-mail that District 9 City Council candidate John Yourse will kick off his campaign by running the 9-mile White Rock Lake loop, the last leg for his relay team — I sure hope he’s in shape because it’s supposed to be a windy morning. (I’ll be running the Trinity River Levee Run 10K in Oak Cliff with the Dallas Running Club).

FRIDAY + SATURDAY: This week marks the 25th anniversary of Dallas Blooms at the Dallas Arboretum and while you’re there, don’t forget to visit the Storybook Playhouse exhibit — you can check out video of that here.
