It’s May, and it’s not sweat-through-your-shirt hot quite yet. This is a great time to go to the Dallas Arborteum. If you’ve got kids, bring a picnic, and don’t forget the camera. Peter Rabbit (that’s him) just got into town, and he’ll be hanging out at the Peter Rabbit Flower Village every day from 10 am—1 pm. He’s only here til May 9 though, so…hop to it. (So obvious. Sorry.)
We also like the sound of this: Dance lessons are free on Monday nights at the Round-Up Saloon. Tonight’s lessons: “couples dance” at 8:30 and line dancing at 9:30. There’s no cover, but if you’re like me, you’ll need a drink or two before scooting a boot or whatever. The man I spoke to assured me that I would feel comfortable even as a beginner, and that Juanita (the instructor) could pay some “special attention” to me if I need it. He also said it’s a popular night for all kinds of people, from engaged couples practicing for their first dance at their wedding to older people on the town.
One more good deal: the people at Cru are throwing a Rodney Strong Reserve Tier tasting tonight. $15 gets you five samples and free food.
