12/11-12/12: Diddy, Candlelight and Rock Out Hunger

Diddy gets the party started at Zouk and Christmas past takes over Old City Park

ROLL OUT THE RED CARPET: Mr. Sean “Diddy” Combs knows how to throw a glamorous affair. Saturday night, the champagne will flow and few will make it past the velvet ropes as he hosts the grand opening of a new Downtown Dallas hotspot. Zouk Nightclub takes the place of the former Starck Club, frequented by big named celebs back in the ‘80s. Now, the 24,000 square foot dance hall off McKinney offers Dallasites a newly revitalized posh atmosphere encouraging residents, “Don’t wish for fame – live it.” Find out what all the hype is about for a $25 entrance fee and the party won’t stop until 4 a.m.

CANDLELIGHT HISTORY: Experience Dallas in the olden days through a candlelight carriage ride back in time. This weekend, the 39th annual Dallas Heritage Village at Old City Park brings a little show and tell holiday history to residents dating back to 1840-1910 - buildings, carolers, entertainers, exhibits – all donned in traditional costume and decoration of that time. You can even hop on a horse-drawn carriage and ride along a candlelit path through the village.  Nibble on bites from Eddie Deen Catering and homemade treats by The Guild of Dallas Heritage Village in the Chautauqua Pavilion before you visit with St. Nicholas. The weekend of holiday history lasts from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets are $10 for adults, $6 for kids and $8 for seniors.

ROCK OUT HUNGER: Join City Tavern Saturday from noon to 3 p.m. and help Rock Out Hunger. Students from the School of Rock Dallas will wail to Aerosmith-like sounds aiming to raise funds for the North Texas Food Bank. This Saturday bring the whole family down to the city for a chance to see how kids rock out and to help hungry youngsters in the area. Entrance is $5, plus 2 canned food items.
