If you can’t remember what you did at Purple Party, here are the pics

IMG_8572Thousands of people turned out for the three-day Purple Party celebration May 9 – 11. I know most of you were on your best behavior and can remember every single thing you did. And for those of you who weren’t … well, we have pictures. Lots and lots of pictures.

Purple Foundation Executive Director Blake Baker isn’t answering his phone right now to give us details about attendance and revenue. Who can blame him? We expect he’ll be sleeping for a week to recover from this huge event. Congratulations, Blake. You and your volunteers did an incredible job.

We’ll have more information when Blake wakes up. In the meantime, enjoy the pics. You can see them here. And, yes, I know that when you click on the first pic, it tells you it’s No. 24. We’re working on it. Chill.

Dallas circuit parties take on the holiday

EDITOR’S NOTE: These event are promoted by Dallas Purple Party, but not official events of the organization.

Whether you’re staying in town over the Fourth of July holiday or headed to P’town to party, you can keep a little bit of Dallas with you.

Dallas Purple Party has two big events set this Saturday. At The Brick, Drag Racer Nina Flowers will be joined by DJ William Umana, pictured, for a show and meet-and-greet, starting at 11 p.m. (no cover charge before then). Then get your flag waving at 3025 Main St. for DJ Oren Nizri and DJ Paul Kraft.

But you can also help the Purple Party raise money for HIV/AIDS in Massachusetts, with parties all weekend at the Crown & Anchor (featuring the likes of Roland Belmares and Alyson Calagna) and DJ Joe Gauthreaux at Cameo on July 3.
