All eyes on Dallas for Conan, Arts Week, Final Four festivities

All eyes on Dallas. It's set to be an exciting week.

The city is on the brink of its second-annual Dallas Arts Week and Dallas' neighboring city of Arlington is gearing up to host the NCAA Men's Final Four at AT&T Stadium this weekend.

The fun has already started nearby Museum Tower Dallas.

At Main Street Garden, exactly one mile from Museum Tower, Conan O'Brien has set his stake in the Texas soil with the Cone Zone.

The Team CoCo playground rallies the iconic comedian's presence in Dallas for live tapings of his TBS show at The Majestic Theatre through Thursday, April 3. The Cone Zone is family-friendly, featuring a Conan-ized Airstream trailer, Texas-inspired Conan fan art, video games, live music and surprise appearances from the Team CoCo personalities. You'll even notice that the famous Dallas B&G sign got restyled for the occasion.
