Look Up and Learn to Appreciate The Architecture of the Dallas Arts District.
Tonight, we admit, is not the busiest night we've ever seen. But it's not the slowest, either. It's somewhere in the middle. Fitting that it's a Wednesday night, too, isn't it?
We think so. And we also think that, if nothing else, a night like this provides us all with the chance to do something new.
Like maybe watching a play. or playing competitive Rock-Paper-Scissors. Or just staying in and going to sleep early for once.
Hey, it could happen.
