Celebrate 100 years of South Side on Lamar


Time for a little Rundown Jeopardy.

Answer: A Caribbean cruise, a
glow-in-the-dark bike for you and all your friends, and a case of Dom Perignon per month.

Question: What are three things you could purchase if you didn't have to pay rent for a year?

It's all possible this Saturday at the Lamar Street Festival.

The day-long event features live music (Erykah Badu), beer (Four Corners Brewery), food (Jack Daniel's Saloon), and artists (who are good but you've never heard of them) all celebrating the 100-year anniversary of the South Side on Lamar building, a historic landmark and former home to Sears, Roebuck & Co.’s Catalog Merchandise Center.

Today, the building and surrounding neighborhood is where much of TNT's Dallas series is filmed.

And it could be your new home address. Not only will you have the chance to be an extra in a short film being produced during the festival, but you will also get the details on how to produce your own 60-90 second film that could earn you a rent-free pad for an entire year.

You'll have until October 27 to film your masterpiece, but there's plenty of creative inspiration to be had at the fest. Maybe it'll be during
Home by Hovercraft's performance. Perhaps you'll find your muse in the view from the building's rooftop deck.

Or at the
Musical Petting Zoo.

Whatever that is.
