Things To Do In Dallas This Labor Day Weekend

Gramercy on the Park Apartments in North Dallas

The weather forecast predicts the 100 degree heat to continue through Monday, so being close to water is a must this labor day weekend. You can always keep cool at our refreshing West End Pool, but if you want to venture outdoors, here are a few things to do around Dallas:

Hit the Lake – Did you know Dallas has 63 lakes within a 100-mile radius? That’s a lot of water! You can keep cool in any one of them, including Lake Lewisville, which is just 10 miles from Gramercy on the Park. Rent a boat or jet ski at the marina or if you’re more of a landman, sit on the shore & play a game of sand volleyball at Sneaky Pete’s Bar & Grill. There is also a Fireworks show over Lake Grapevine this Friday night, just a 20 minute drive from Austin Ranch.

Hit the Malls – Beat the heat & shop in the air conditioning. According to Wikipedia, Dallas has more shopping centers per capita than any other city in the U.S. Lucky for you, some of the best shopping is right down the street from Gramercy – Stonebriar Centre, Willow Bend Mall and The Galleria are all within a few short miles of our community.

Hit a Concert – Whether you want a big concert or small, intimate show, there is a music venue to fit every taste in Dallas. Labor Day concerts include – Kid Rock & Cheryl Crow at Gexa Pavilion, Better Than Ezra at the House of Blues, Drive By Truckers at the Granada Theatre, Marvin Hamlisch at the Dallas Symphony, Asleep at the Wheel at the Dallas Arboretum (includes an outdoor picnic)….and the list goes on and on. Catch more details at Guidelive.com.

Hit the Spot – KRLD Restaurant Week is still in full swing, with select restaurants extending reservations through September 4th. $35 gets you a gourmet prix-fixe dinner at some of Dallas’ top restaurants and $7 of each dinner sold will go to the North Texas Food Bank. Be sure to book in advance at Open Table to secure a spot!  If you can’t book a table, try one of the on-site restaurants at our sister property, Austin Ranch! They have plenty of great food & drink specials at Cafe Gecko, Zen Bar, McSwiggan’s Irish Pub, Centro Tex Mex and Lone Star Coffee Bar.

As always, play it safe, stay hydrated and enjoy your 3-day weekend!

Dog Park Update

Dog lovers rejoice!   The City of Dallas Parks & Recreation Department has begun construction on a new dog park next door to Gramercy on the Park.

The Dog Park plans include spaces for large & small dogs as well as a wet dog area near the pond and an area for agility training.

They haven’t forgotten about pet owners either – there will be a shaded pavilion with seating areas and adventure trails with access to White Rock Creek.

If all goes as planned, the city hopes to complete the park by the Spring of 2012 (parts of it could be open as early as November 2011 – fingers crossed!!).

St Patrick’s Day Parties in Dallas

Despite not having deeply Irish roots, Dallas is known nationwide for its St Patrick’s Day celebrations. Whether you’re new in town or just wondering where everyone is each year on this day, here are a few things to do in town during the Ides of March:

GREENVILLE AVENUE ST PATRICK’S DAY PARADE – a tradition since 1979, the St Patty’s parade grows bigger & more outlandish each year. Parade-goers line Greenville Ave from SMU Blvd to Lovers Lane watching the outrageous floats & costumes. The parade starts at 11am, but people start getting there to grab a spot around 8am.

For those of you who are fans of the Dallas band The Toadies, there will be an outdoor concert hosted by the Dallas Observer in Energy Square – a parking lot on the corner of Greenville & University. Gates open at Noon. Tickets are $12. For more info, visit http://microapp.dallasobserver.com/stpatricksday/2011/

GREENVILLE AVE. STREET PARTY – becoming even more popular than the parade, is the annual street party on Lower Greenville. The street is blocked off between Vanderbilt & Vickery to allow revelers to literally party in the streets. People arrive at 6 or 7 am to stake their claim on the patio seats at Stan’s and The Dubliner, but the party really gets started around 10am (and by 2pm, its usually too full to get in). There is a $5 charge to get in, so bring cash.

DASH DOWN GREENVILLE 5K – for those who want to “try” to start the day off right, there is a 5k walk/run down Greenville Ave before the parade starts. Thousands of people dressed in anything from running clothes to leprechan costumes meet at Central Market (corner of Greenville & Lovers) at 8:30am. It’s more of a party than a run, with live music, food and beverages (yes, even beer). For more information, visit http://www.dashdowngreenville.com/

MCSWIGGAN’S IRISH PUB – IRISH BREAKFAST
McSwiggan’s Pub (located in our sister property Austin Ranch) serves Irish breakfast every Saturday & Sunday, but they will be opening early on March 12 so that parade & party-goers can get the hearty breakfast before making their way to the festivities.

No matter what you do, the best piece of advice I can give you is leave your car at home – between the crowds and street closures, you won’t be able to park it anywhere anyway. If you live close to the DART rail, try taking the train to Mockingbird Station & walking to the festivities.

Stay safe & may the luck of the Irish be with you this St Patrick’s Day!!
