Week of / August 11-17, 2014 / Dallas - Highland Village

 The weekend is fast approaching. Let's all get out to a heavy metal concert and go absolutely crazy. 

J/K.  ;P

This weekend is a mixture of indoor and outdoor fun.


1. Friday night is all about the downtown Dallas scene. Midnight at the Nasher will get the kids engaged with live music that will keep them entertained and a great movie (Where the Wild things Are) will be shown later in the evening. Arrive early and grab a burger at Savor/relish Burger Stand at the Klyde Warren Park, or some other fine delicacy from the food trucks that will line the street at the park. 

Northpark Center/ Dallas

1. Have fun indoors on Saturday at Northpark Center. Start things off by taking the family to Bread Winners Cafe for a scrumptious brunch. This is by far the best place in the area for brunch. I recommend going out on the patio and let the kids play with life size connect four boards. 

2. Right across from the Bread Winners cafe is the Bookmarks Library. At 2pm "The Caribbean Show" will have an amazing reading time with the feel of calypso and reggae story time. At 2:30pm, Oil and Cotton, a creative education studio from the Bishop Art District, will be at the library with fun and creative crafts for kids of all ages to enjoy.

Highland Village

1. Saturday evening, take to the skies and look up. It's not a bird or a plane... It's Hot air balloons. Highland Village will be hosting the 27th annual Balloon Festival.

2. The carnival food at the Balloon Festival will be a treat. If you prefer a quick bite, head down to SuschiYAA for some delicious flavors of Japanese sushi. Or some good custard at Freddy's Frozen Custard

p.s.  If you are still excited about the concert idea, then you might want to check out Lee Harvey's in the Cedars for a date night. They are known for consistently showcasing great local talent.

- have fun
