What we're about

Once restrictions are lifted events will be posted, always in accordance to health guidelines.)

DFW Explorers is an active group for anyone between the ages of 21 – 45 who embrace new cultures, ideas, and adventures. We're not afraid to step of our comfort zone, but we also love kicking back with a good beer and some good food.

Our events focus on building a community, meeting new friends and challenging ourselves to just do something in the huge metroplex that is DFW.

Explore: Takeout from Cosmic Cafe and Picnic

Turtle Creek Park

Join us for some takeout, fun and friends on Sunday September 27 Cosmic Cafe was the very first vegetarian restaurant I ever tried in Dallas, and since then it has been a place I try to visit often. I haven't gotten a chance to do it since the start of quarantine, so I thought it was time to change that. Since we can't do indoor dinning safely with a large group, I thought we could all get takeout from there and meet up at the nearby park for some diner and company. You can find the menu here and you can call in orders for takeout. http://www.cosmiccafedallas.com/

Explore: Social (distanced) run at Peticolas!

Peticolas Brewing Company Taproom

Come join us for a run, drinks and fun on October 10th, 2020 (You don't need to purchase Peticolas To Go Packet (info below) to join, but if you want to support a local business and get some beers/swag I def encourage it!) In the BEFORE times, one of my favorite activities was Peticolas Social Runs, and so I was glad to see they adapted to the current times. For $30 you get a package that includes:Race bib (with a coupon to return to the brewery for a draft sample once the Taproom opens), a three pack sampler of CASA MASA tamales with salsa, a mixed four pack of Peticolas beer which for October includes a Velvet Hammer, Golden Opportunity, Sit Down and a Come & Take It and a themed glass. https://runsignup.com/Race/TX/Dallas/VelvetHammer5KSocialRunWalkOctober?remMeAttempt= I'll bring my cooler with ice where we can hold our beer, and we'll run in the trail adjacent to the brewery (which Peticolas will be lining up with mile markers and bottled water) and then we can either hang out at the parking lot on an impromptu "tail gate" style or head to a nearby park for some social distanced social time. So make sure to bring some camp chairs!
