Weekend Wanderings – 9.16.16

friday, saturday, weekend, foodie, nomad, dallas, dfwIt’s Friday Eve people! Ready for the weekend? Here are my top picks for fun and food. So get out there, have some fun and…just eat it up!


Park(ing) Day Dallas
PARK(ing) Day Dallas is held annually on the third Friday in September. This worldwide movement’s goal is to promote social interaction and play by transforming parking spaces into mini-parks. This is event is two-fold: day and night. Visit Main Street between Harwood and Field from 11 AM – 6 PM and/or Main Street between Crowdus and Pryor from 6 PM – midnight. There will opportunities to network, eat, listen to music and just mingle! Here is a video from last year. Oh! It’s FREE.

Dallas Museum of Art Late Nights
From 6 PM to midnight tomorrow night at the DMA you will find something interesting for the entire family. This special late night is a block party to celebrate the State Fair of Texas and the fairs of the past. Click here is the schedule of events. Cost: $15

‘Til Midnight at the Nasher
Food, music and a movie in a beautiful setting. You would be a fool not to! Head down to the Nasher for your FREE night of fun. The 6 PM Acoustic Singer-Songwriter features The Walden Twins. Next up is Jack Kerowax at 7 PM. Then settle in on a blanket for the movie Pleasantville. Remember: no outside food or drinks are allowed so bring some cash for tacos.

Magnolia at the Modern
I live in Dallas but love me some Fort Worth. The Modern is an incredible museum. Tomorrow night they are showing Miss Sharon Jones at 6 PM (there is also a showing on Saturday at 5 PM). If you haven’t ever listened to Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings you need to treat yourself to an earful. Soulful and loud! This is a film documenting Sharon’s fight with pancreatic cancer and her struggle to maintain her career. Get ready for a roller coaster of feelings! Cost: $9


Deep Ellum Outdoor Market
The market is joining Reimagine Crowdus on Saturday, from 6pm – 10pm for shopping and music. The market is located on N. Crowdus St between Main and Elm Streets. The cost is free but bring money for grub and shopping.

Addison Oktoberfest
Have a hankering for some German food and fun? Head over to Addison for their annual Oktoberfest celebration. There will be food, live music, vendors, keg tapping, yodeling…and Dachshunds. Cost: $10 for each day and food and beverage coupons are available for purchase.

V Market at TUPPS Brewery
I am not vegan, but I try little by little to be more mindful of what I eat and use. That being said, there is some truly amazing vegan food out there. Truly amazing. From 11 AM – 3 PM TUPPS Brewery in McKinney you can learn more about the vegan culture, visit local businesses that offer vegan-friendly, sustainable and ethical products. You will be surprised and amazed at what these businesses and their passionate owners have to offer.

See you next week!
