Reasons to Go Out from Crest’s Downtown Apartments in Dallas


We offer downtown apartments in dallas near Medical City Dallas Hospital, Texas Instruments & State Farm Campus, so many of our residents enjoy the luxury of living close to work. When it’s time to get out and enjoy the weekend though, residents can rely on our team of bloggers to provide them with a full schedule of events to enjoy.

The team at Crest at Park Central downtown apartments in Dallas loves fall because of all the events that pop up every year. Dallas event planners can really show off their creative chops when the sweltering heat isn’t cramping their style. Is everyone enjoying the break from the heat that October weather brings? Maybe no one has noticed because we’re spending every weekend in front of our TVs watching football these days. Take it from the team at the luxury apartments Dallas prefers, there are good reasons to get out in the city this month!


Tacos are always a good reason to get out of the house. Why do we love tacos so much? Is it because they’re portable? Is it because ‘taco’ is a fun word to say? Whatever the reason you love tacos, Tacolandia has that special taco for you. On October 15th from 4pm – 7pm at City Hall Plaza you can enjoy endless (!!!) samples of the city’s best tacos. These tacos come from taco trucks, food stands, 5 star restaurants and hole in the wall diners. One thing remains constant though, they’re all delicious. It’s hard to find a bad taco in Dallas, and it will be impossible to find a bad taco sampling at Tacolandia.

A Preview of Aurora 2017

An incredible light show is coming to Dallas on October 21st and 22nd from 8 p.m. to midnight both nights. The preview to Aurora, titled, “Prelude” will feature 10 large-scale art installations of light, video and sound from around the world. Aurora 2017 will be even more awe-inspiring, with more artists and more installations coming next year. Frankly, it’s almost impossible to describe Prelude or Aurora in words, so check out the website for imagery and videos. Don’t miss out on this awesome, free event taking place at the AT&T Performing Arts Center

Park & Palette

This event really has the perfect name, because Park & Palette is as much about the venue as it is about the food and drinks. This food and wine festival will take place in Klyde Warren Park on October 21st and 22nd. Chefs and restaurateurs from all over the region will be on site offering various food, wine and cocktail samplings for all attendees. All this takes place with the beautiful Dallas Skyline as a backdrop for any and all photo opportunities. It’s not often that you get the opportunity to enjoy such a wide variety of food in such a beautiful setting, so check out the website and order your tickets today!

Texas Veggie Fair

It’s not easy being a vegetarian in Big D. Sure, the city has gotten a lot more veggie-friendly in recent years, but vegetarians must get tired of hearing about the delicious BBQ every time a friend comes to town. Now finally, an event for vegetarians!

The Texas Veggie Fair is a free event “celebrating plant-based lifestyles of every kind” according to their website. An all-volunteer team sets this event up each year, all so patrons can enjoy food from tons of different vendors and learn about healthy eating options. The event is about more than just vegetarianism. There will be speakers, concerts, and fundraisers all with the goal of educating the public about living a more sustainable lifestyle.
