Just earlier today at Subway I heard a guy complain about the fact that it was 85 degrees this morning when he got up. As a native Texan for over 34 years, it was all I could do to not laugh out loud as 85 degrees at the beginning of June is a Godsend. Texas summers are legendary all over this state. From the humid swamps of the Southeast to the arid plains of the West, Texas gives out some beatdowns in the realm of heat and sweat inducing weather.
This is why we value the joy of summer evenings and getting together AFTER the sun has gone down. Air conditioning is a MUST, not an option here below the Mason-Dixon Line. To that end, our nightlife is on point. Cooling out at Cool Out (an event done at Crown and Harp by my friend, DJ Tony Schwa) is just the way to chill out and take in the summer well. A selector of fine tastes from the realm of Disco, Funk, Soul, and Southern beats, he’s been making the magic happen for the past 3 years.
If you’re in Dallas and you’re NOT at Cool Out on a Monday night, you are missing out.
I’ll be there next week taking in the drinks, the women, the music, and most importantly the air conditioning. 😉
See you there, set to chill!
