Mardi Gras Float Build + Planning Meeting

Wednesday, December 16 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. 
It’s time for the first Mardi Gras float build/planning meeting of the year is here. We’ll be meeting at the warehouse at 810 W. Davis Street, so be sure to bring your own lawn chairs (and cooler if you feel like sipping on a beverage) so you can sit comfortably while we go over details.

We could also use:
• Table saws
• Extension cords
• Nail guns
• Drills
• Sawhorses
• A folding table

This meeting will last from 6-8 (maybe later depending on progress). Because we’ll be building with heavy tools, we ask that you please don’t bring children.

Only Mardi Gras volunteers will be able to participate in the parade, so if you want to join in on the fun, be sure to get involved!

Turner House Salon Series presents Miss Marcy & Her Texas Sugardaddies. Miss Marcy is a blues-shouting powerhouse who won the Dallas Observer Music Award for Best Blues Act in 2014 and she has a new summer released album “Deep Ellum.”

“In a musical genre often dominated by men, Miss Marcy is at the forefront of the Dallas blues scene, wow-ing blues aficionados with a voice that sounds one part angelic/two parts devilish, which nearly caused this listener’s heart to stop as I fell into her words.” McPhate, Dallas Observer Blogs.
