Listening to: The Cave by Mumford & Sons
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens may be a few of my favorite things, but spring is at the absolute tip top of the list. What's not to love? Great weather, that perfect shade of new leaf green, long patio session with friends and of course: FREE OUTDOOR CONCERTS! It's a great date night, family evening out, or a fun way to relax with friends.
Mockingbird Station hosts free concerts every first and third Thursday of the month. On a slightly more casual note, AT&T Performing Arts Center has Patio Sessions each Thursday from 5:30-7:30, which is a free music series pairing with great music with a game of competitive outdoor ping pong. Since my ping pong skills are ninja awesome, you can bet you'll see me there. But wait! There's more! (How lucky for you that I've scoped out a bunch of outdoor concerts! Kidding! But seriously.) Watters Creek has a Creekside Concert series featuring the Briefcase Blues, a band which is a mix of comedy and music. Perhaps one of the better outdoor concerts experiences are at the Dallas Arboretum. Albeit, these concerts aren't free, but they're extremely inexpensive and overlook White Rock Lake and a gorgeous array of flowers. If you think that sounds like the perfect recipe for romance, you're probably not the only one thinking along those lines...but there's a great mix of people that attend.
So get your spring fling music fix and enjoy the 2.5 seconds of delightful weather which Texas calls spring. Trust me, summer loving and the 110 degree heat will come all too soon!
