Tonight while you root on the Rangers, head to the Bishop Arts District for Dallas’ first ever Pop-up bar. In clandestine speak-easy style, you’ll walk into a garage building that has been transformed into a place of libations and perhaps some sinful delight. You’ll pony up for some tickets in lieu of cash, whisper your favorite flavors and liquors you fancy, and watch the mixology magic happen as you support a few great charities.
Find your way a bit past Bolsa at 828 W. Davis St and make sure to stop by soon, as Bar 828 is lasting only for a few weekends in October leading up to the opening of Michael Martenen’s ‘High and Rye’ off Main St. The concept is taking New York’s guerrilla style Pop-Up shop ideas and fusing it with pre-Prohibition style times. Mingle with some indie artists, meet your next Uptown cutie, and watch your bartender take an ice pick a chunk of ice block to chill that creative cocktail of yours.
Michael Martensen has assembled a roster of top mixologists, designers and artists from the area, who have signed on to volunteer, with the proceeds benefiting Falling Whistles and Promise House, a local charity that helps runaway teens get off the street.
The FALLING WHISTLES Tour Bus will be in attendance and spreading its powerful message to the masses. As seen on and supported by a slew celebrities and peace activists, the Falling Whistles campaign launched with a simple response – be a whistleblower for peace in Congo.
Proceeds go to rehabilitate and advocate for war-affected children. Share their story and speak up for them. What began as a story exposing the world’s largest and deadliest war, has become a campaign for peace in Congo. Make their weapon your voice and rock a conversation starting piece of jewelry in the process.
