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!

Hawaiian Falls Splash Out Hunger Food Drive

2 Aug

August 1st kicks off the “Help Hawaiian Falls Splash Out Hunger” Food Drive that will benefit the North Texas Food Bank and the Tarrant Area Food Bank. This food drive will be running from August 1st thru Labor Day Weekend, September 5th. North Texans are encouraged to bring a can of food or nonperishable food item and you’ll receive $5 off a Big Kahuna ticket! A regular Big Kahuna ticket it basically just a ticket for people above 48 inches in height costing $23.99. Lil Kahuna’s (under 48 inches) are only $16.99 for admission and Keiki’s (kids years old and under) are free! The discount on your ticket will be applied at the ticket window.

It’s one thing for low-income families, unemployed workers, senior citizens, victims of domestic abuse or family violence and people with chronic illnesses or disabilities to get by during the school year or regular months, but it can be even worse during the summer time when school-aged kids to not have access to free or reduced-cost school lunch programs. Imagine how you can affect a person’s life right here in our own area by donating food items to a great cause. It’s not just about your Hawaiian Falls discounted pass, but that’s just an added bonus.

While we all may be familiar with North Texas Food Bank, but if you weren’t aware TAFB (Tarrant Area Food Bank) covers Tarrant county as well as 12 neighboring counties on the west side of DFW. TAFB distributes donated foods from their Ft. Worth warehouse to 300 partner agencies that serve Texans in need. A $1 donation helps TAFB provide enough for 3 donated meals so imagine what you’re doing for a small $5.00!

Remember, Hawaiian Falls Splash Out Hunger is going on now through September 5th!! The $5.00 discount on Big Kahuna ticket will only be available during this time period also but there are always deals going on. Hawaiian Falls has water parks in Garland, The Colony, Mansfield and Roanoke. For more information on Splash Out Hunger and other Hawaiian Falls events or discounts click here.

KRLD Restaurant Week 2011 Now Taking Reservations

24 Jul

In less than a month KRLD Restaurant Week returns to DFW!! The annual event gives you the opportunity to enjoy a three-course prix fixe dinner for only $35/person at some of the top most expensive restaurants around town. The package does not include tax, tip and drinks but just dinner. KRLD Restaurant Week will run from August 15 – August 21. You can select from about 125 restaurants. Over half of the restaurants will extend the deal for about two or three weeks, like through August 28th and some til September 4th. Some restaurants are even offering a Restaurant Week preview the weekend right before it officially starts, which will take place Fri. Aug. 12th through Sun. Aug. 14th.

Once you recognize some of the restaurants offering the deal you’ll understand that you can’t beat $35, especially if it’s a three-course meal!! Also the restaurants aren’t all in one particular city or area but stretch from Downtown and Uptown to Addison out to Ft. Worth!

KRLD Restaurant Week also benefits two of the metroplex’s major non-profits, the North Texas Food Bank of Dallas and Lena Pope Home of Fort Worth. For each prix fixe dinner purchased, the participating restaurants will make a $7 donation to either of the charities. From what I understand, some reservations can be made online while others you may have to call in. It’s not too early to make your reservations either! In fact, reservations began on Monday, July 18th! This may not be the Taste of Dallas but it can be your formal air conditioned version of it. For all you steak lovers and hardcore carnivores there are some pretty high ranked meaty restaurants participating in Restaurant Week 2011. Don’t miss out on this annual event coming up next month! Make your reservations soon and tell ‘em DFW Happenings sent ya!
