Barring the occasional tornado (please do), now is the best possible time for an outdoor celebration in Dallas. So we celebrate. We celebrate just about anything we can, while we can. This week we celebrate a part of town known for Kardashian sightings, fancy brunch and well-dressed joggers, and we do it just as the natives do — by tippin’ one back to some frat rock, shopping like there’s no tomorrow and sampling delicious upmarket cuisine. The Celebrate Uptown event, which benefits both the Katy Trail and the McKinney Avenue Trolley, kicks off Thursday with a concert featuring The Spazmatics. The show starts at 5 p.m. at West Village and Cityplace. Continue the celebration 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. Saturday at West Village during Sip, Shop and Stroll, featuring special trunk shows and sales. Finally, nosh on quintessential Uptown cuisine from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Monday at a prix-fixe dinner featuring dishes from three different restaurants. Visit celebrateuptown.com for more information about all three events.
