Kimbell Art Museum & Lunch in Ft. Worth

***** There is a large event on this weekend in Fort Worth. We want to warn you that car pooling is the best option to avoid parking complications.*****

We will meet before leaving The Dallas area. Write a comment if you can drive people or you need a lift. Once a month, we are scheduling outings to various cultural places/events in the DFW area.

This month we will be going to the Kimbell Art Museum in Ft. Worth! The Kimbell is famous, both as a nationally-recognized art museum and an architecturally-significant building in DFW. After visiting the museum, we will head to downtown Ft. Worth and get lunch there.

Some details:
- admission is FREE, yay!
- for lunch, I'm thinking Cabo Grande in downtown Ft. Worth. It's a moderately-priced tex-mex place.
- please reply to my thread about carpooling. It's nearly an hour to the Kimbell from Dallas, and I don't want to drive there by myself

    I really enjoyed getting to meet with the group for the first time! Looking forward to attending when I can manage to get over from Fort Worth, and especially any meet-ups actually in Fort Worth.

    I am popping airborne tablets like they're candy. Hopefully I'll feel better by tomorrow though.

    Hey everyone! Just wanted to bring to your attention that tomorrow is the 5k/10k Cowtown Marathon in Fort Worth. If you go here: http://cowtownmarathon.org/adults-5k/ and scroll to the bottom of the page, it will show you the route of the runners. Kimbell is in the middle of it all. The races start at 8:30 or so, so hopefully it will be cleared out by the time we meet.

    Carpooling! We are probably spread out, but let's get a couple of meeting points to carpool out to Ft. Worth. Please reply with your general area so we can figure this out.

    I'm in Uptown btw.

      Hi Shon, Let me know if you need a lift tomorrow.

    I will already be in Fort Worth that morning. Is there any way for me to hook up with the group at the Kimball? This is my first time meeting with this group.

    February 21

    • Brian K.

      Yeah, we'll be going to the general exhibition. My phone number is on the other comment if you want to call when you get there

    • Andrea

      You can catch us by phone if you need. We also plan to arrive at 11am outside the Kimbell and will post our location in comments when we arrive.

    This will be my first time to attend. I live in Fort Worth and never seem to make it to the Dallas meetups. Also, I had planned to brush up/see if I could remember a bit of my language studies, but have been overwhelmed with other things this week. Hope I won't be too much of a drag. I will enjoy meeting everyone and will at least hope to get some listening & visiting in!

    We have lots of new attendees - looking forward to meeting you all. Please let us know if you'd like to carpool. There could be limited space due to a FW event this weekend.

  • Brian K.

    Ok, based on the feedback I've gotten, I think uptown is the best place to meet up.

    Let's count on meeting in the Albertson's parking lot (on the side near McKinney) at 9:45. Here's the address:

    3524 McKinney Ave.
    Dallas, TX 75204
