Rainy Days in Dallas

As per the Dallas usual, weather is unpredictable–it was a warm 70 degrees on Christmas, and in May Dallas looks like the overcast Seattle. If the rain has you feeling restless, here’s a few suggestions to cure cabin fever this summer!

Thai Culture and Food Festival

If you’re looking to *spice* up your dreary summer days, go to the Buddhist Center of Dallas and enjoy an endless supply of delicious and authentic Thai food! The event is completely free and open to all who enjoy Thai culture; it includes Thai boxing, temple tours, and cultural dance performers. From chicken satay to Pad Thai, you will not be disappointed in this annual cultural experience!


Dallas Margarita Meltdown 

If you prefer to drink through the rain, look no further. Everyone knows that Texas makes the meanest margarita on this side of the border, so you do not want to miss this celebration of Dallas’ favorite beverage. D Magazine writes that over 30 restaurants and bars will compete to win the best title for “Best Margarita in Dallas” in the West End this coming weekend. Make sure you’re there to do some taste testing! Group tickets are $35 and individual tickets are $40–a small price to pay for the best margarita in Dallas.


Summer Movies 

Your kids have gotten out of school and the forecast calls for rain this entire week–now what? Not to fear, there are a few anticipated summer movies that have been released this week that are perfect for your children. The Angry Birds Movie came out May 20. Admit it–you’ve flung those birds at buildings as much as your kiddos have–so take your family to see this hilarious movie. If your kids are a little older and love some old fashioned superheroes, take them to see X-Men: Apocalypse! With theatre favorites like Jennifer Lawrence and Olivia Munn, you can’t go wrong. Get some popcorn and enjoy a summer evening with your family on these rainy days!
