Flying on a jetplane to Dallas. What can I do at night?

I will be arriving around 5 PM, might take me until 6 PM to get to the hotel on Sunday. It's a business related trip, but since I'll be working normal office hours, I can work around it and still try to have some kind of fun. I've never been to Dallas. What can you suggest to me that might be fun?

I love traveling and have always wanted to go to Dallas. The only tricky part is that museums and any normal businesses are pretty much out of the question given my 8-5 hours. Also, I need to stay within Dallas, business expenses are refusing to cover a rental car since my hotel is right next to the company's building. By the way, technically the hotel is in Irving, the map indicates it's pretty close to the hotel and also relatively close to some clubs, but I don't know which to choose.
I do like clubs (dance clubs) and I am a bit of a night owl. That said, I feel I'm going to be pigeonholed into just checking out night clubs. I will be by myself so please give me more safe, more public areas where I'm likely to be able to cab it back to my hotel. I also like stand-up comedy (for the record). I am also female, single and 28, hence the safety concern. For the record, I have no qualms about going to gay clubs. I just need to find some nice people so I won't feel so weird about going clubbing alone.
At any rate, I'm open to any and every suggestion you throw my way. Thanks in advance -- you'll be saving me a ton of research time and it's always best to hear it straight from the horses' mouth! (Ha, see that? A little Southern humor for you). My trip is from Sunday evening until Friday evening -- I'll be flying back to the city I live in around 8 PM on Friday.
