Join us for a Dallas Crawl! We will get in some miles and see great views of the skyline as we walk 4.4 miles from Bishop Arts District to the Art District and cross the pedestrian bridge into the city! Its a great way to hit some of the city's trendy breweries while still keeping outdoors!
Our plan is as follows:
Begin at 12pm, Manhattan Project Beer Company
2nd stop: Steam Theory Brewing
3rd stop: Texas Ale Project
4th stop: Peticolas Brewing Company
We do not have set times for leaving or arriving at each brewery, we will just move as we finish at each.
Please do not rely on meeting us part way. We will not follow set times, while we are focused on a good time!
Due to the nature of a beer crawl, we suggest Uber or safe practices in getting to and from the crawl. I wouldn't suggest driving as crawlers typically have two drinks at each brewery. Also, I wouldn't suggest driving instead of walking between places, as that kind of ruins the point in a crawl. Cheers everyone, see you there!
*Must be 21 to enter, and of course the cost is on each attendee.*
COVID restrictions have lifted, most places do not require masks any more. Please consider this before attending.
I plan on hiking the DORBA trail at the Johnson Branch unit starting promptly at 8:30 am on Sunday morning. Be ready to begin hiking then or risk getting left in the parking lot.
This hike will average around 3 mph or faster. The trail is about 8 miles long.
This is Texas in summer so bring a lot of water.
If people want to we can go to Fuzzy's in Sanger after the hike is over.
The park requires a day pass for each person. Right now they have 637 of them available so it's not likely they'll fill up.
Check back here before leaving Sunday morning to make sure the hike hasn't been cancelled. The weather forecast looks good right now but one never knows.
Lets go paddling! Purtis Creek State Park is less than 2 hours east of Dallas. It has a 356 acre lake that we can explore. It is a no wake lake so no big boats or loud watercraft are allowed. I've seen beaver, a swimming deer, alligator gar and lots of waterfowl there. There's a small island that I've never explored. We can meet in Maybank at the Bean & Burger Restaurant around 11am, have a really good lunch then drive about 20 minutes to the park. There aren't boat rentals but they have just signed a new contract to get them back real soon.
Join us at Smoky Rose for a fun evening meeting other NTO members and hearing about our weekend group adventures. Friendly people, great food and the most amazing outdoor patio dining venue in Dallas is what you can expect. Try the chicken fried smoked brisket or the smoked salmon BLT. There will be a guy playing guitar and happy hour drink specials. The valet parking can take a while so be patient. YOU CAN PARK IN FRONT OF WALTON'S NURSERY AFTER 6. I always show up early so I can eat before everyone starts showing up (and avoid the parking backup). Just look for the large, friendly group of outdoors loving people next to the outdoor gazebo.
