Events Cooling Down

In case you haven’t noticed it’s hot outside, even by Texas standards. Because of the ridiculous heat we’re going to gear down a bit in August until things cool off. Thursdays will still feature performances from Dallas Black Dance Theatre, and Sunday we’ll still have our wonderful brunches and Urban Market kiosk. However, we’re clearing off the rest of the calendar. Not to worry, you can still come out and enjoy great Plaza dining any day of the week.

Jorge's Opening

Well, it has been revealed to me that Jorge's will not be opening July 31st after all. I'm snooping around trying to find out what the delay is because I'm certainly sad about it.

Will let you know as soon as I hear something.

Plaza Food Market

There has been a change to the monthly calendar at One Arts Plaza. Our natural foods market is the first Saturday of each month now from 11am to 2pm.

Stop by for some great veggies!

Blue about Batman?

Couldn't get tickets to the new Batman movie? Join the crowd. The temptation to skip work today was overwhelming, but the wife threatened legal action if I saw the movie without her.

So what to do on a Friday night now? Well here's an idea: come down to the Plaza for some blues music to sooth your sad heart. Tonight the Paul Harrington Blues Duo is playing from 7-9pm. Besides Texas BBQ, there's isn't anything better than Texas blues music.

Enjoy some drinks at Dali, or treat yourself to a meal at Screen Door. You can always skip a day of work and see Batman next week.

Thank Heaven!

It's summer and we all have one thing on our mind right? Slurpees! Well some of us are still enamored with the simple things in life I guess.

What better way to chill on a July afternoon in Texas than by enjoying a nice, cold ice drink. And what better drink is there than the one from our childhood right? Every suburbanite remembers the joy or riding his or her bicycle up to the local 7-11 and getting a cherry (my favorite) or root beer Slurpee.

Well the folks at 7-11, headquartered in One Arts Plaza, celebrate each July 11th by giving away free Slurpees as part of their Customer Appreciation Day ( July 11th...7-11...get it...yeah, OK good). This year it's to celebrate 7-11's 81st birthday. Feeling old yet? Well feel like a kid again by treating yourself to a free Slurpee, but bring the kids along too.

7-11 FREE Slurpee

Dali Wine Bar/Guide Live

As a blogger I find I spend a great deal of my time reading other people's blogs. I like to share when I find blogs that relate to Arts Plaza Events. Plus, Guidelive is always a good read.

Guidelive talks Dali

And of course I'm a loyal D Magazine reader: Dali Review.

Jorge's is coming to One Arts Plaza July 31st!

If you're like me and have lived in Texas all your life, then you know good Tex Mex, and you also know you can never have too many Tex Mex restaurants. For all of you imports from the North (and I know there are a bunch of you out there) then you need to introduce your taste buds to the wonderful world of chili, cheese and salsa at Jorge's. If it's too hot for your non-fortified system, douse it with a tall margarita. You'll be fine.

Tip: Tex Mex tastes best on a Saturday afternoon with a nice, tall cerveza.
