Concerts Are Back!

Many months ago, we dreamt about what a big concert might look like in a post-Covid world. How would the seating be set up? Would there be the opportunity to splurge on a concert cocktail? Who would even come to play? Last Thursday, to celebrate the unofficial start of summer, Klyde Warren beautifully realized our Concert in the Park dreams.

There was socially distanced garden seating, a slew of food trucks offering complimentary dinners, vintage vendors, Mambo Taxis (Mi Cocina on the Park is still slated for a fall opening), and Robert Earl Keen, with special guest Devon Gilfillian, playing under the stars. Dallas Cowboys icon Troy Aikman was in attendance — nothing makes you feel alive quite like the rush of a celebrity sighting — as was philanthropic force Sheila Grant, and Klyde Warren Park president Kit Sawers. It was the perfect start to a 2021 Memorial Day Weekend.
