Dallas has another outdoor concert series throughout the summer. This one is called Barefoot at the Belmont. It is on the lawn by the pool at the historic Belmont Hotel. The hotel is known for its amazing view of the Dallas skyline. This was my view from my lawnchair:
I atended my first concert there last night and I loved it! I plan to go back as often as I can now!
The Belmont Hotel is a restored "motor court" hotel that was built in 1946. It has the feel of an old Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez movieset. You can read more about it here. Just walking around the hotel is very cool. I would say, it's a "must see" if you're visiting Dallas.
The temeratures in Dallas has been over 100 degrees for about 2 weeks now and I was expecting it to still be very hot. But the pool and lawn were in the shade and it was very nice. The musicians were acoustic guitarists and were exceptional! And the skyline of Dallas was a beautiful backdrop.
I was enjoying being in the moment; people watching, a glass of wine, visiting with my friend, watching the birds fly overhead, watching the sky drain of color, the sunset reflecting off of the buildings of downtown and then watching the stars appear. All accompanied by some great music.
What a perfect Dallas evening!
Happy Friday y'all!
