Happy St. Cuban Day!

Had it not been for Mark Cuban, owner of the Dallas Mavericks, the annual Dallas, TX. St. Patty’s Day Parade may not have happened this year.  This parade is probably the only cool thing that Dallas does. Austin has a festival/party almost every weekend, but Dallas really doesn’t seem to want to have cool things.  Well, luckily for Dallas, Mark Cuban came to the rescue and helped fund the parade.

I started out the day doing the Dash Down Greenville.  This year I made it about 2.5 miles before I decided I needed to alternate running and walking.  It took me 37 minutes to do the run.  It took Mike 31 minutes and I think Paul did it in 25 minutes.  After the run, they gave away free beer and other swag items that I didn’t really worry to much about.



After we went to the car to change for the parade, we tried to go to the Schlotzsky’s on Greenville, but despite the fact that they door said they opened at 10:30 and there were workers inside, they told us they wouldn’t be open until 2:00.  They must not enjoy making money to be closed on one of the busiest day Greenville Avenue has.  I also think they should have considered putting a sign on the door, but I guess it’s none of my business how they run theirs.

The parade was a blast as usual. We stood at our annual spot and cheered on the “floats” and screamed to get free beads. Every year I think that our group should enter our own float since I haven’t ridden on a float and given the princess wave since college. We only have to find someone who wants to build and store the float somewhere.  Any takers?
