The Weekender

The Longest Catwalk in North America and Other Weekend Musts

The weekend is fielding offers from the SEC, the Pac-12 and the Ivy League.

Thursday
The Longest Runway in North America
ON THE CATWALK

The Longest Runway in North America

The problem with fashion shows: the runways are way too short. So the Galleria is breaking out the longest runway in North America: approximately a quarter-mile long. We recommend grabbing a vodka martini at the FGI shoppers’ lounge as the models pass by. All that walking will make you thirsty.

Sipping Prosecco in the Name of Fashion
MODEL MAYHEM

Sipping Prosecco in the Name of Fashion

Speaking of models, Highland Park Village is celebrating Fashion’s Night Out with two fashion shows. The more important info: Hadleigh’s will have gratis prosecco, and there’s bubbly at the Hermès scarf-tying class. They couldn’t afford your pocket-square-folding seminar.

Saturday
A Farm Filled with Ducatis and Wine
LITTLE ITALY

A Farm Filled with Ducatis and Wine

Ah, the Texas countryside. The farms. The open fields. The endless rows of Italian cars. This Saturday, the 150-year-old Nash Farm will be passing out gratis wine and showcasing over 50 vintage Ferraris, Ducatis and Lamborghini Diablos. We hear the Ferrari makes a terrible tractor.

Sep 10, 10am-4pm, no cost, Nash Farm, 626 Ball St, Grapevine, 817-410-3185

Playing Dodgeball with Water Balloons
AVERAGE JOES

Playing Dodgeball with Water Balloons

Dodgeball: a battle of speed, power and clever team names. But this Saturday your skills will be put to the test at a massive dodgeball tournament, where they’re using water balloons instead of rubber balls. Maybe grab the team’s Dri-Fit uniforms to be safe.

Sep 10, 1pm, $125-$150 per five-person team, parking lot behind Station 4, 3911 Cedar Springs Rd, register here

A Pub Crawl Worthy of Ridgemont High
FAST TIMES

A Pub Crawl Worthy of Ridgemont High

This Saturday, if you find yourself wearing a jean jacket and holding a Gordon Gekko phone, you were either hot-tubbing with Cusack, or you’re on an ’80s-themed pub crawl, where five buses are shuttling you to five bars all over Dallas. Don’t forget an extra slap bracelet for your date.
