At Paint with Flair, instructors kick down the barriers that traditionally stand between beginners and a paintbrush, starting by creating a comfortable environment. Couples on dates, coworkers looking to bond, or friends out on the town sip on BYOB drinks and snacks as they loosen up and get acquainted with the provided materials (classes for kids and non-drinkers are also available on the schedule). Teachers get groups chatting as they take them on a step-by-step walk through the brushstrokes, color selection, and witchcraft necessary to whip up their own fetching painting, whether it be a reproduction of Van Gogh’s Starry Night or an original design.
The Cowboy House connects sports fans with sports memorabilia and stadium chairs that were harvested from Texas Stadium, The Ballpark in Arlington, The Astrodome, and SMU Moody Collisuem. Cowboys fans can recline in reminiscence as they re-create cherished game memories in their own living rooms, from celebratory crowd leaps to epic feats of hot-dog eating. Sports memorabilia such as autographed jerseys and plaques provide customers with memorable keepsakes, and each stadium seat comes with a certificate of authenticity and a map to the secret location of Tony Romo's empty-pizza-box collection.
