Only in Dallas would people drive 25 miles to hang out on a lawn.
But that's exactly the power of Klyde Warren Park, our fair city's answer to that Central one in NYC.
And this Thursday at Decks in the Park, join the in-crowd and plan a date night on the green that won't cost a lot of it.
That's because six DJs (A1, Feezy, Jeff Mitchell, DVDJ Washington, Waric Carmeron, and Paradise) will be spinning an eclectic mix of dub, reggae, hip-hop, house, and disco for throngs of barefoot-in-the-grass dancers. All for free.
Bring your dog and a blanket built for two. Grab liquor, beer and wine from one of the seven on-site food trucks, where you can, of course, purchase a meal if you're not the pack-a-picnic type.
Then kick back and watch the sun set over the city.
And maybe sneak a kiss somewhere between a samba and the Dougie.
