The Drop Everything List
The Art of Recycling tour stops in Orange this weekend. 

Throw your plans out the window. We scoured the state in search of the top events and offerings, from learning the art (and importance) of recycling and hearing Darrel K Royal talk in Dallas to biting into a Texas 1015 at the Onion Fest in Weslaco. Here’s our super select guide to the things you absolutely can’t afford to miss.

Dan Phillips is developing his utopia in the woods surrounding his hometown of Huntsville, where the former Sam Houston State University dance professor and intelligence agent builds houses entirely out of recycled materials for low-income families and artists. His mission is to keep stuff out of the landfill, he said, but perhaps that is just his shtick for getting cheap and interesting materials, often with free delivery, like when he got an 18-wheeler of wine corks that he used for siding and flooring. “As a child, I visited the dump and everything was free,” Phillips said.
