Sunday, Aug. 27, is Just Because Day.
If you have a hankering to do something different, today would be the day to do it. Why? Just because!
While the DART System is very deliberately planned and operated, it can still fit into Just Because Day. Explore somewhere that you haven’t been before. Buy something funky or kitschy from a one-of-a-kind shop. Get off at a random stop and explore the station art. Why? Well, you know the answer.
To get you started, here are some suggestions:
- Go to the Angelika Film Center, the Landmark Magnolia Theatre or the Alamo Drafthouse and buy a ticket for the very next feature that is showing. Something you might not think is your cup of tea could turn out to surprise you! All three are easily accessed from DART stations.
- Go to one of the four stations of the Downtown Transit Mall – Pearl/Arts District, St. Paul, Akard or West End. Here, all four DART Rail lines pass. Get on the next train that comes by, and see where it takes you. Could be Fair Park, could be the Dallas Zoo, could be one of the very cool downtowns of Carrollton, Garland or Plano. Perhaps the Mustangs of Las Colinas in Irving, the Eisemann Center in Richardson, the Rose Gardens of Farmers Branch, or enjoy a cold one and a pizza at the Bankhead Brewing Co. in Rowlett. You don’t need a reason today.
- Get off at Deep Ellum or Baylor University Medical Center Station, go into the first shop or boutique that you come across, and buy something you don't need. Why? You know why.
You can probably come up with your own ways to celebrate Just Because Day on the DART System. Have fun with it!
