As promised, the Oak Cliff’s Spinster Records and El Chuy joined forces this year for their third annual Davis Street record shop-hosted celebration of February 14 — not as Valentine’s Day but rather as 214 Day.
It’s a cool tradition — one of the neater chest-thumping celebrations of Dallas around, we’d even go so far as to say — and this year’s offering once again proved to be an entertaining time. For the occasion, El Chuy sold some special pink items from its beloved Oak Cliff- and Dallas-themed streetwear line as Kings Tattoo‘s Lucky Abrego offered attendees the chance to get inked up with $25 flash tattoo that also centered around a Dallas focus.
Guests also indulged in beer from Four Corners Brewery and cocktails from Deep Eddy Vodka as DJ Teezy dropped a playlist that hopscotched from throwback R&B to Latin classics and enduring Dallas-sprung rap classics.
It was an event that literally could not happen in another city. May all your future 214 Days be so bright.
