Lions and Tigers and Dinosaurs…and Wine, oh my!

There are a couple of fun things available to DFW residents as summer starts to wind down before school starts in a couple of weeks.

First up is the Dinos at the Dallas Zoo exhibit that’s running until September 2nd.

There are more than 24 “larger-than-life” dinosaurs on display for zoo-goers to enjoy as they walk through the recreated prehistoric jungle at the Dallas Zoo. 









In addition to seeing these behemoth predecessors to the Zoo’s current residents, folks will be able to engage in activities like: manipulating the robotic dinosaurs to see how the animatronics work, hunting for fossils in the Dino Dig Zone, building dino puzzles with giant dinosaur bones, competing in the “Jump like a Dino” and “Spit like a Dilophosaurus” contests.

You can also view the DinoSOAR show (Wednesdays through Sundays) and catching a dino encounter at the Lacerte Family Children’s Zoo at 2:30 p.m. daily. 

It’s sure to be great fun.

If you travel north about 20 miles, you’ll also be able to take advantage of a unique experience sure to please venophiles and are lovers.

Running through December 12th, the Downtown Plano Art and Wine Walk presented by Plano Magazine gives attendees the opportunity to sample select wines around the neighborhood while enjoying live music, local art and shopping.










Each evening begins at 5 p.m. with check-in at 1013 E. 15th Street, where attendees receive a commemorative glass, tasting card and wine guide.

According to the program, there are approximately 20 wine stops each month, with each location serving a different wine. While enjoying wine samples, attendees keep track of the locations they visit on their tasting cards. 

Participants turn in their cards to enter the raffle drawing in McCall Plaza at 9:15 p.m. Participants must be present to win.  

It’s sure to be an enjoyable evening for anyone who loves art, wine and shopping.
