Deep Ellum Monthly Taste and Drink

It’s that time of the month again. Wait. No. Gross. Let me rephrase that….

Each month, Deep Ellum Enrichment Project (DEEP) sponsors a monthly taste and happy hour at a different business in Deep Ellum. And it’s THAT time of the month again. Deep Sushi, located off of Main St., Deep Sushi will be our host this evening. From 6-9pm, you can find great drink specials and complimentary foods that will leave you wanting more from the fantastic Deep Sushi. Hope to see you there!

Better Everywhere

Deep Ellum Outdoor Market is taking a shot at the Better Block project.  For those who don’t know what this is, it’s a day long attempt to show Dallas what streets could be like if they were built better!  More room for pedestrians, more room for bikes and more room for businesses!  Where does that room come from you ask?  How about a couple of those car lanes on Elm St.    This is going to be big! and we’re pumped! Check out the past event over in Oak Cliff here or the one over in Ft. Worth here.

See you there!

Carrotmob Invades La Grange

What the hell is Carrotmob? Ok, well I think the best way to tell you is to show you. In cartoon form.

Basically, as a resident of Dallas, and a member of the Deep Ellum community, you need to come out to Deep Ellum’s swankiest bar and restaurant, La Grange. This Wednesday (Oct. 13) between 5PM and midnight our community will become more energy efficient. It’s a pretty sweet trade-off! Hang out in Deep Ellum, buy some drinks and food, and La Grange will put 81% of it’s profits towards becoming more energy efficient!

Man, it’s amazing what cartoons can teach us. Oh, and go find out more about Carrotmob here.
