Get Thee To The "Eye"

Tony Tasset's Eye

Lindsay Adelman awesomeness in The Joule lobby.

The covetable goods at TENOVERSIX

Serious coffee gear at Weekend...

Ok this one is for my (otherwise lovely and amazing) friends who claim there's nothing fun/interesting/clever to do in our fair city. Ready? In celebration of the New Cities Summit currently going down here in Dallas, The Joule Hotel is hosting several v. cool activities at Tony Tasset's killer 30-foot-tall Eye sculpture.

The normally private event space across the street from the Joule's main entrance that serves at home to sculpture will be open to the public through this Saturday, June 21 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Guests are invited to bring their lunch and hang out in the park-like space while taking in live music, free outdoor yoga, and free gelato samples.  

Tasset's enormous realistic three-dimensional recreation of a human eyeball with a blue iris, based on the artist's own eye (it's a little creepy, but in the best possible way), also makes a killer photo op, so The Joule is also helping visitors give back to the creative community with Selfie for a Cause. For every selfie taken at the Eye using the hashtag #EyeAtTheJoule, the hotel will support summer learning by donating $5 to Big Thought

Once you're done taking in the music, noshing gelato and taking selfies, head across the street and doing a little shopping at TENOVERSIX, grab a coffee at Weekend, peruse the books at Taschen, and then let's talk about how awesome Dallas is. Cool?

* Entries accepted via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. One entry per person, maximum donation of $3,500. Free Gelato Samples provided by Cafe Strada June 18 & 20 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Free Outdoor Yoga hosted by VITAL Fitness Studio June 19 at 5:30 p.m. Big "D" Jazz Band presented by Big Thought June 20 from noon to 1 p.m.
