I hate to tell you this, but it’s the middle of summer and dating is getting boring. I do not care how into the relationship you are, how long you’ve been together-whatever. It’s July, and it’s been-there, done-that. So this weekend, why don’t you take that special lady in your life and do something she (and yes, you too) will enjoy. There’s no point in suffering through anymore sushi or blasé nights watching B-horror movies and falling asleep on the sofa.
It’s time for a ladies weekend. It’s time you took the reins in your relationship and showed your woman that you know how to have a good time, and you know how to plan things and be responsible and fun because you are a fun -loving person who plans out their romantic dates and always offers to hold the door. So get on out there, and spoil the queen of your heart!
July 8 – Friday – 11 p.m. – 4 a.m. – Drakefest Dallas – Every woman loves Drake. I love Drake, my mom would probably love Drake if she met him, and I’m willing to bet so would your mom. Drake is the ultimate ladies’ man. So celebrate your lady by taking her to a party dedicated to the one and only Champagne Papi. Check out the Facebook Event page for more details, including updates on the venue and how to get on the guest list. https://www.facebook.com/events/1163023020409225/
July 8 – Friday – 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. – 1st Friday Block Party – Pegasus Plaza – Perhaps you’re looking for something a little more tame -but still fun- before a night out on the town, why not start with some music, fun and games in the heart of the city? This Friday will be the first Block Party at Pegasus Plaza. It’s the perfect opportunity to take your lady out, show her how good (or adorably awful) you are at dominoes, and be all cute and stuff. https://www.facebook.com/events/245776465814673/
July 9 – Saturday – 9:30 a.m. – 5 p.m. – North Dallas Comic Book Show – Double Tree Hotel Dallas, Market Center – What’s more a-dork-able than a comic book fan? You, when you take your girl to this year’s North Dallas Comic Show. Come for cosplay, music, special guests and -duh- comic books. Tickets are required, so be sure to snag a pair in advance. You’ll be granted admission to some wicked artists, out of this world outfits, and overall a Saturday you’ll remember for years to come. Not to mention, you’ll both get to geek out over your favorite comic book heroes for the day, which is really what love is all about. More ticket and event info at: http://www.comicbooksdallas.com/
July 9 – Saturday – 6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. – 2nd Annual Watergun Party – Klyde Warren Park
– If you’re more into the “you make me feel so young” kind of romance, than this event if definitely for you. Make sure you dress to get soaking wet at this fun-filled (and family friendly) event! This would be a great opportunity to show how gleefully in-touch with your inner child you are, and a nice was to beat that lovely Dallas summer heat. Make sure you’re following the rules though, and leave your water balloons at home! Find more info at https://www.facebook.com/events/195104470885576/
