You’ve probably heard the freebie wristbands for The Concert for Dallas: Party in the Park featuring The Polyphonic Spree and Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue on Saturday, October 27, at The Klyde are gone with the wind. Ah, but a little redbird just flew in with news that there are “still tickets available in the reserved section.”
Leave it to the Klydettes to put together some interesting perks for this heavy-hitters hangout. OK, let’s get the price tag issue over with now because that’s what you’re wondering around. They’re $200, but $150 is tax deductible. Your accountant is gonna be impressed with that one and you just know how you love to impress him/her.
And what do you get for that ca-ching? You’ll get
- nearby reserved parking for the entire day, so you can attend the afternoon festivities, go home, feed the dog, change clothes and return to free valet parking for the evening,
- access to VIP seats
- Food provided by Bread Winners Cafe & Bakery, Bandito’s Tex Mex Cantina, Capital Grille, Common Table, Dee Lincoln’s Restaurant & Bubble Bar, Katy Trail Ice House, Kelly’s Eastside, Original Cupcakery, Place at Perry’s and Potbelly Sandwich Shop. Of course, the open bar will offer adult beverages including specialty drinks and
- a year-long couples’ membership to “Friends of the Park.”
And since Dallas’s own Owen Wilson will be honorary chair for the night, don’t be surprised if he drops by the VIP area. If he does, act cool when you pull out your phone camera for a snapshot.
And don’t forget the opening weekend’s activities. There’s something for everybody and the price is so deliciously free.
