Hello Summer Social with CultureMap

One of the things I love most about this time of year is the weather! It’s warm enough to hang out but not so hot that you’re sweltering! Perfect patio weather! Y’all know I love a patio. But this time I’m going beyond the patio and taking over the entire block!

Kidd’s Kids has partnered with CultureMap and West Village for their “Hello Summer Social” on May 24th and it is going to be SO much fun. I seriously cannot wait!

Let me start by telling you a little bit about CultureMap. If you’re not following CultureMap, you’re missing out on everything cool in Dallas! When you subscribe to CultureMap, they’ll send you quick tidbits about things going on in the city, like the hottest places to eat, drink, and shop.

If you want to know what’s going on in Dallas, you def want to become a CultureMap Insider!

Hello Summer Social

Hello Summer Social is one of Culture Map’s signature events and started a few years ago when CultureMap started hosting quarterly happy hours for young professionals. It blew up (in a good way) and morphed into this awesome event series called CultureMap Social. Awesome parties with food, drinks and lots of interactive fun. Inspired by patio season, they decided Hello Summer Social was the perfect theme, and West Village was obviously the perfect place for next week’s party. Plus, there’s plenty of space for your favorite outdoor games like Corn Hole, grown up Connect4, and Jenga.

First let’s talk food, because obviously. West Village restaurants will be there serving up tasty bites. Mi Cocina, Taco Diner, Grimaldi’s Pizza, Sushi Zushi … and lots more! And of course there will be cocktails! Gentleman Jack is also a sponsor and there will be a bartender showcase with top bartenders from CultureMap’s Tastemaker Awards, mixing up summer inspired cocktails. Yum!

If you’re in the mood for some pampering, there’s going to be a cool luxury mini-spa. MiniLuxe will be doing nail art and there’s going to be a henna art station (totally organic!). Avalon will have a Braid Bar, hand massages (heaven) and skin consultations, so you can get your skin right for summer! And for your bae, Eighteen Eight Men’s Salon will host a shave station! If you’re still doing the single thing, maybe you can find a cute boy to crush on! 😉

And then shopping. Some of West Village’s retailers like Kendra Scott, ShopSeptember, and Rye 51 have joined forces to put together a little pop-up shop collective of shopping stations. You’ll be able to see some of the lines the boutiques offer and get some gift ideas for Father’s Day. Because the only person harder to shop for than your boyfriend, is your dad!

Spinning tunes will be DJ Christy Ray. (Do I sound cool when I say ‘spinning tunes”? No? Go with it anyway!) In case you don’t know, she’s DJ Spinderella’s daughter. Spinderella of Salt-N-Pepa. So, yeah. DJ royalty.

And there’s still more! If you don’t know Fluffpop Gourmet Cotton Candy, get some and then get your life! They’re bringing their HotPoppin popcorn bar with sweet and summery flavors like Italian Cream Cake. After all that yumminess, stop by the SoulCycle station. I’m in love with SoulCycle and they’ll be there with fitness tips and tricks, and a pass for a free spin class.

And because if there are no pictures, it didn’t happen, you have to take a selfie in front of the gorgeous West Village mural! If selfies aren’t your thing, the Photo Bus DFW booth will be there to take the pic for you. Either way, #SelfieStation at #CMsocial!
