Deep Ellum Wine Walk
During this recurring event (third Thursday of the month), you can combine two of your favorite pastimes: wine drinking and shopping. Visitors can purchase a collectible Wine Walk glass for $10, raise it and repeat as they enjoy samples and explore Dallas' hottest neighborhood. Pick up a passport at the check-in table at 2650-B Main St. (starting at 5 pm). Have it stamped at five or more destinations — participating stores include Life of Riley, Akola Project, Epocha and Elluments — and enter the drawing (located at the check-in table after the event) for a chance to win gift certificates.
