Bridging Downtown Dallas

Posted by    |    February 29th, 2012 at 11:06 am

You know that beautiful arched bridge that we have been admiring from afar, looming 400 feet above the Trinity River in downtown Dallas? That is the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge designed by Santiago Calatrava, and you’re invited to the events and activities being held to celebrate its opening this weekend, March 2-4.

The festivities kick off Friday evening, beginning at 7 p.m. and winding down at 11. Enjoy music by Lyle Lovett, the Street Corner Symphony and DJ Lucy Wrubel, who will be spinning bridge music all night. There will also be pedicabs, food vendors, celebrity chefs, and fireworks for the grand finale. Tickets for this event are $200.

On Saturday, the Trinity Commons Foundation invites the community to come out bright and early to start their day with the Trinity River Levee Run. It’s only $30 if you take advantage of preregistration. The run starts on the West Dallas side of the bridge, navigates through the Design District, and loops back. Check-in is at 7 a.m. (more…)

Dallas Stars Host Ladies’ Night

I always take advantage of opportunities where my inner tomboy and flirty girlish sides get to come out to play together. There is one of such opportunities happening this month, Dallas Stars’ Ladies Night.

On February 23, round up all your gal-pals for a unique experience at the American Airlines Center. A $70 ticket gets you behind-the-scenes with a tour of the Dallas Stars’ locker room, then takes you out onto the ice for an unheard of Hockey 101 tutorial with former players. It wouldn’t be a true ladies’ night without some vino running through our veins, right? After cooling off on the ice, warm up with wine tasting and a fabulous fashion show. In addition to these perks, your ticket will also reserve two plaza tickets to the Stars vs. San Jose Sharks game on March 8.

While the festivities are taking place, crazy door prizes are being given away all night. Would you like to cruise around town all weekend in an Audi? Or have a lunch date with Adam Burish (sigh, yes please)? Count me in.

This exclusive event has limited space, so registration is encouraged. Check out www.DallasStars.com/HEELS or call 214-387-5646 for more information.
