History Shaken, Not Stirred

Consider the Dallas Heritage Village the official ambassador of history in our dear city — an extended hand, offering to take you back in time to the Dallas of old. The historic buildings and other antiquities on-site are a throwback to the days when Big D was little more than farmland and burgeoning industry, but no less full of character. In fact, Dallas Heritage Village’s grounds, at 1515 South Harwood St., are home to the city’s very first park, established in 1876. Since then, that little plot of land has seen a sparkling city sprout up all around it — but it remains, still dedicated to the Dallas it sprang from. History With A Twist, a fundraiser from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. Saturday, supports that ideal: All proceeds go to preservation and educational programs at the site. And the evening stays true to its roots; tunes will be provided by retro orchestra The Singapore Slingers; mixologist Brian McCullough will be pouring classic American cocktails; and vintage costumes are encouraged. The evening also includes auctions, a photo booth and silent movies. Make a date with history by purchasing tickets for $75 each or $125 per couple at dallasheritagevillage.org.
