Free bus hops between venues in Oak Cliff on New Year’s Eve
Here's a great reason not to drink and drive.
Not sure how you'll get home after some fun on New Year's Eve? Consider a safe, free option: The Cliff Crawl is a New Year’s Eve bus (aka the Bishop Arts Winery Trolley) that will pick up partiers ringing in the New Year at The Belmont Hotel, The Kessler Theater, Texas Theatre, and in the Bishop Arts District.
Looping around the neighborhood, the big red trolley on wheels holds 35 people and will be stopping continuously from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m., says Scott Horn, one of the brain children behind the Cliff Crawl.
“We hope that making it easy to hop from place to place will encourage folks to hang out all night and check out a few different areas,” says Horn, also ambassador at The Belmont Hotel. “This is a great opportunity for folks coming down for dinner in Bishop Arts to stick around and check out some of the newer hot spots in the neighborhood.”
In its first year, the Cliff Crawl was a team effort by Horn as well as Julie McCullough, president of Bishop Arts Merchant Association; Jason Reimer of the Texas Theatre; Nicole Cullum Horn of the Kessler; and Elias Rodriguez of Bishop Arts Winery.
The venues are each paying an equal share in the cost for the night.
On New Year’s Eve, the Belmont hosts Lollipop Shoppe w/ DJ Tigerbee. The Texas Theatre has a celebrity-themed costume party called Hollywood Babylon. The Kessler will be getting down with the Singapore Slingers and Brave Combo; and of course Bishop Arts will be in full swing.
“If it’s a success, we would like to make it a perennial part of New Year’s Eve festivities,” Horn said. “Oak Cliff businesses are small and independent, but they understand that working together is the only way to raise the tide for all.”
