Original Dallas Pegasus relighting ceremony
The Omni Dallas Hotel and Matthews Southwest will host a ceremony to re-light the original Dallas Pegasus, presided over by Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings. Matthews Southwest restored the original Pegasus, which will reside in front of the Omni Dallas Hotel. Matthews Southwest restored the Pegasus as a tribute to Jeff West, who in 2012, before his untimely passing, suggested to Jack Matthews they find and restore the Dallas emblem.
The free event will include complimentary small bites from the new restaurants opening later this summer, including Herrera's, Little Katana, Coal Vines and the Biergarten on Lamar, as well appetizers from Texas Spice and the Owners Box from the Omni. Alcohol will be available for purchase.
There will also be entertainment from Reckless Kelly and Hayes Carll.
