Maybe it’s the recent Tony Bennett show that’s got me stuck on the Sirius Sinatra channel. (Or maybe I’m just channeling my grandfather—he loved cardigans and highballs. And Sinatra.) Whatever the reason, the Twilight Tuesdays concert at the Dallas Arboretum caught my eye today. The headliner is Paul Salos, and he does a Sinatra tribute act that got him into the Top 6 on America’s Got Talent, so that’s got to mean he’s pretty good, right? Here’s the thing about Twilight Tuesdays. It’s kind of a different scene from Cool Thursdays, which are great fun, but can get pretty crazy. They tell us that for some reason (Tuesday nights? Music type?), Tuesday nights have less kiddos running around than Thursdays. Great for people looking for a date sans-children, or just a more mature evening out. Also, it’s easy to bring a cooler of booze or whatever into the Arboretum, but if you don’t have time to stop beforehand, eating at the DeGolyer Cafe is a good idea (and they have wine). They are open from 6—7:30 pm.
Here’s the trick though—put down your blankets and chairs and things to mark your spot before heading up to eat. Otherwise you might be stuck with a less-than-ideal viewing spot, and we wouldn’t want that for you.
