Serious Pizza's Grand Reopening!

Serious Pizza
2807 Elm Street
Friday, February 26, 2021

It’s seriously happening! Serious Pizza is set to start offering guests a bigger, better experience with giant pies, killer merch, weekend DJs and more, when they reopen this Friday!

If you know Serious Pizza, you know they go BIG. Fans will notice the difference as soon as they walk through the door. Not in the Seriously Large 30” New York-style pizza that guests obsess over, but in the overall experience. The popular pizzeria will also host a live DJ on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, appealing to their late-night crowds. It would be a serious mistake to miss this reopening!

Undermain Theatre from the Archives

Undermain Theatre
3200 Main Street
Stream Virtually
Undermain Theatre presents from their archives a 2010 solo performance: The Be(a)st of Taylor Mac. A flamboyant chameleon of words, music, and sociopolitical tirades, visual and vocal phenomenon, Mac employs gender-bending surrealism to explore the human condition and challenge the contemporary culture of fear. This performance is available only to Season Subscribers and it runs from February 24 – March 14, 2021.

Purchase a season pass so you can be eligible to view this streaming show by the artist that Time Out Magazine called “One of the most exciting Theater Artists of our time,”  and who now has become a star of Broadway and Off-Broadway both as a performer and playwright!

Celebrating a Life-Long Legacy of Service in Deep Ellum

It is with sadness and a deep sense of gratitude that the Deep Ellum Community Association (DECA) shares the passing of its president, longtime board member, and fierce volunteer Jim Rogers. Jim embodied the spirit of the Deep Ellum community—advocating for the district with selfless gifts of time, craft, and service to others. Warmly referred to as the Mr. Rogers of the neighborhood, Jim coalesced a new era of governance at DECA, building on a strong history of community support from past leaders.

Jim was immensely proud to work on and lead a variety of DECA projects. He was an early champion, uber-volunteer, and green-thumb guru at the popular Deep Ellum Urban Gardens (DUG). He cared deeply for neighborhood infrastructure and how it impacted residents, businesses, and visitors. From repairing twinkle lights and removing unsafe tree limbs to filling sidewalk holes and fixing broken water meter covers, Jim stepped in simply because there were problems that needed fixing.

He was instrumental in expanding and growing the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market, fueling business for craftspeople and artists, and engendering community and commerce. Jim coordinated and organized DECA’s presence at the annual Deep Ellum Arts Festival. More recently, he was instrumental in advocating for Deep Ellum’s free COVID-19 testing. He was immensely proud of the Deep Ellum community and his impact will last forever.
