Deep Ellum Beer and Cider Tour
Saturday, NOV 16th
GET YOUR TICKETS
Here's a wonderful Saturday event from Texas Beer Tours. Check out the link above to get your tickets and get all of the details.
These are customized tours where you will be in small groups with an experienced beer guide. If you sign up for a tour, you will go and visit 4 of these 5 breweries: Deep Ellum Brewing Company, Westlake Brewing Company, Braindead Brewing, Trinity Cider or The 2nd Tap. The tour will include 3 flights and 3 beers. We were told that there is some flexibility, so check with your guide on that.
A couple of tips:
1) You should feel free to ask for samples of anything before you purchase.
2) These are walking tours, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes.
3) Let them know if you need any special accommodations when you get your tickets.
4) While many of the beer gardens are dog-friendly, the breweries themselves are not.
5) There are a lot of nice casual restaurants, interesting bars and live music in the area. So, you may plan to stay longer than just the tour.

Dallas Zoo Lights
This is an annual celebration at the Dallas Zoo.
With over 1 million lights, it's quite a light show. Some of the activities in addition to the light show include a Santa meet and greet, make your own nature ornaments, a photo op set up on Santa's sleigh, an elf's workshop at the Children's Zoo and some fun food, including s'mores, hot chocolate, donuts, funnel cakes and more.
The Dallas Zoo Lights is included in your general admission fee. The animals are put in for the night, so come early (before 4 PM) to be able to enjoy the animals first.
