"Big D" Adventure Day
Thursday, August 10th, 2017

Book your stay at the Sheraton Hotel Dallas (venue for the GOE)

We have families coming in from all over the world for this event.  Many of them have asked us what they can do while they are in Dallas.  With that in mind, come in a day early and we have put together an all-day historical/cultural/social adventure for those interested!  The "Big D" Adventure Day is on Thursday the day before the GOE starts.  You must RSVP by July 15th, 2017 to be on the bus!

$10 to get on the bus, activities are additional!

Stop #1 - Breakfast at Tipico's
8:45am - 9:45am

Tex-Mex is the way to go for breakfast in the "Big D".  Come get some Breakfast Tacos, Huevos Rancheros or a Breakfast Burrito to start your day off right!  Tipico's is the place!

Be careful of that jalapeno on the side of your plate..... it's not for decoration, but if you're from out of town you might want to have a drink close by!



Stop #2 - Dealey Plaza and the 6th Floor Museum
10am - 12:00pm 

Dealey Plaza, The Sixth Floor, The Grassy Knoll.  Come join us for the museum tour and visit the the most famous crime scene in the world!  This part of the excursion is led by GM Ted Sumner, a serious history buff and published author.

Stop #3 - Lunch
12:15pm - 1:15pm

I know there is a lot of argument about which BBQ is best, but try ours out for yourself and see why the "Big D" can give anyone a run for their money with Brisket and Ribs!

Ask shihan Mike Bush about his famous BBQ sauce (he wont tell you his secret, but its worth a try)!

Stop #4 - Pit Stop at the Sheraton

Stop #5 - Shop Western Wear!
2:00pm - 3:15pm

Feeling left out because you don't have a custom fitted hat and boots?  Belt buckle too small?  Shirt a little too preppy?  We can fix all that with a trip to a huge western store where you can have a hat steamed to fit, get some lizard or snake skin boots (ropers are more "old school") and round out your outfit with a big belt buckle to help hold that huge lunch in place!
