Life Happens After Dark

Spring break is here, but that doesn’t mean you need to let your brain rot. Nope. In fact, what if we were to tell you that you could embrace fair weather, the city’s best culture and even see a wonderful movie outdoors, for next to nothing? (I’m asking because that’s all real stuff, so get excited.) Yes! It’s the Arts District Spring Break Block Party. On Friday, Flora and Harwood streets will be closed down till midnight so that you can roam easily between the Nasher Sculpture Center (2001 Flora St.), the Dallas Museum of Art and the Crow Collection. At the Nasher, where admission is half-price for the week’s daytime entry, you’ll get free a King Bucks concert and a screening of The Fantastic Mr. Fox (6 p.m. to midnight). There are also late-night snacks available at the food trucks parked in the common spaces, and gourmet picnic baskets available from the Nasher Café (pre-order only, 214-242-5144). Late night admission to the Nasher, the Dallas Museum of Art and the Crow Collection is free. Visit or

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
