Neiman Marcus Adult Crawl 2012

2 Dec

NeimanMarcus_Logo_SquaredDespite some of his unpopular actions, rapper Kanye West suggest in one of his songs that “you gotta crawl before you ball”, But what if you could switch it up and do them both simultaneously?! This holiday season you can both crawl AND have a ball (or perpetrate inside one of the fancier department stores like you’re Ballin’) when attending the first ever Neiman Marcus Adult Crawl! Throughout the month of December North Texas Food Bank and Neiman’s are putting on a Holiday Window Display and Adult Crawl December 6, 13 and 20! Every Thursday before Christmas the Neiman Marcus Window Tube will transform into a playground for grown folks – yep, that even means you!

Crawl Nights are every Thursday before Xmas

To be a part of NTFB’s Adult Crawl Night at Neiman Marcus one just has to donate $20 and be over the age of 18. After that the fun begins and you return to your childhood but right among one of the ritziest downtown retailers. You’ll even get a complimentary beverage from the NM Espresso Bar. Plus it’s all going towards a great cause – the North Texas Food Bank, who’s pretty FED UP with Hunger! NTFB is ecstatic to be Neiman Marcus’ holiday charity of choice this year. Not only will you get a little exercise this holiday season, but your $20 donation to the food bank will go mighty far so you’ll feel good to have helped out other fellow North Texans in need! The NTFB Adult Crawl will be from 5pm to 7pm every Thursday before Christmas, so make sure your knees are in good shape and that back is too!

City Lights 2011

9 Nov

CityLights 2011 from Downtown Dallas, Inc. on Vimeo.

Get your sunglasses ready because Downtown Dallas is about to be brighter than ever! Hundreds of other North Texans will be showered by lights on November 19th right in the heart of the city. This is a holiday spectacle you and Santa won’t want to miss. Every year they come out with some sort of new element or surprise and a unique way of Santa making his appearance in Dallas. This year will be no different at City Lights 2011! The party begins at 6:00pm as all of downtown Dallas will be laced with Christmas lights and eye popping displays.

From 6 to 10pm the Holiday Festival at Main Street Garden starts things off with the Outdoor Market, face painting, ornament making, music and food. These activities will be going on throughout the night.

At 7:00pm the Holiday Light Show at Main street Garden begins with a lighting ceremony of Downtown’s holiday tree. Standing 65 feet tall, it will be adorned with over 10,000 feet of lights. Watch how they lit the tree last year!

Neiman Marcus all Lit Up

The Promenade of Lights begins at 7:30pm from Main Street Garden all the way to AT&T Plaza. You get to roll through this promenade with Santa and the Hardin Simmons Cowboy Band right in the heart of downtown. Street vending, holiday activities, a Neiman Marcus crawl tube and other forms of entertainment will be going on along the way.

By 7:45pm the AT&T Holiday Spectacular will start at AT&T Plaza. (This night just gets better and better!) Get to where you can view the Comerce side of AT&T’s global headquarters so you won’t miss the Spectacular Light Show. Don’t forget to visit the Salvation Army Angel tree found in the lobby of the AT&T Whitacre Tower adjacent to the AT&T building.

One North Texas resident captured all the highlights of the evening last year! Take a look to get an idea of what you’ll experience at City Lights. This year is sure to be EVEN BETTER…

Just when you thought you had to wait another 6 months for crazy Fireworks, Downtown comes out with this. It’s like a preparation for New Year’s Eve! City Life’s not so bad when you’ve got so many City Lights to gaze at. Be a witness of the jaw-dropping displays that’ll have your heart pumping with excitement for the holiday season!

Don’t be afraid of taking public transportation downtown for City Lights 2011. I’m not saying do it alone by any means, but you may be able to avoid some traffic and get to where you want to be quicker if you have a group of friends or are traveling with the family. If I can do it for the Mavs parade, I’m sure you can too. Check out this nifty map of Downtown with the various modes of transportation to help ya out. Next time you see Santa he will probably be BLINGED out! Especially if he’s stopping by Neiman’s Saturday night!
