OK, so you survived Thanksgiving and Black Friday. While many would like to relax and recover this weekend, there are still plenty of things to do for those wanting to go out.
Dallas troupe Ruby Revue celebrates the history of burlesque with nods to the past and a wink-nudge to the future. The lineup includes Burlesque Hall of Famer Tammi True along with Queens of Burlesque 2012 Angi B. Lovely and 2011 Ginger Valentine. Expect lots of fringe and sequins at 9 p.m. on Saturday at the House of Blues.
High times coming to Texas
Rapper Wiz Khalifa will hit up town at 7:30 p.m. on Friday at Reliant Arena while country legend Willie Nelson will be in Galveston on Monday and Tuesday at The Grand. Khalifa found his voice fusing rapping with a melodic sing-songy approach with lyrics that often speak to the enjoyment of high times. Nelson's voice is still a thing of creaky wonder, and he has thousands of great tunes at his calloused fingertips.
Have a conservative weekend
Get a conservative double-punch as Bill O’Reilly and Dennis Miller perform at 3 and 8 p.m. on Saturday at the Hobby Center. We’d expect nothing less than jokes aimed at President Barack Obama from the Fox News star and former “Saturday Night Live” funny man.
Relax at the movies
After being stuffed from Turkey and stressed from shopping, the movies may be a nice option. "Hitchcock", "Life of Pie" and "Rise of the Guardians" are all in theaters.

Last chance for Ren Fest
