    How's this for a show? Thanksgiving Tower in Downtown Dallas hosted a unique dance troupe called Project Bandaloop who literally dances on the side of buildings.

    The big event started at noon on the building's Pacific Avenue side and lasted through 1:30 p.m., with crowds gathered on the closed street to watch the aerial event 21 stories above the hot street.

    It was all part of a promotion by Reliant Energy to unveil their new "Cap-and-Save" plan -- the company says Bandaloop's performance was even inspired by the idea of decreasing energy charges, though we're a little unclear how dancing on the side of the building applies to electricity bills...

    During the event, the Green House food truck (which we featured here) gave out free gourmet tacos and frozen treats to the spectators, letting folks on their lunch break nab good grub and a good view.
