What child hasn’t dreamt of the day they could fly a giant makeshift object with wings off a tall platform and, no more than 100 feet later, into a lake?

5. Record Attendance Numbers
If you follow the local sports media, you would never guess that there’s a top-tier professional soccer team in DFW. The Frisco club FC Dallas averaged over 14,000 attendees per game last season, up from under 12,000 in 2010-2011 and well under 11,000 the year before that. That’s a whopping 24% attendance increase in just two years — impressive for an organization in their 18th year of existence.
As 2012 nears its end, I thought I’d take some time to reflect upon the things I most appreciate about Dallas — a personal ‘best of’ list if you will. Bear in mind, my world is very small these days with a 2 year old, a wife, and a day job, so my list might seem pretty modest compared to yours.
Another day in the life of Downtown Dallas landmark grand openings — and this time, it’s the Perot Museum’s turn. After three years of construction and wondering how that angled elevator was going to fit into the final structure, the museum is finally opening its doors.
Tickets should be available throughout the day, but be prepared to be admitted in 30-minute intervals. In honor of its grand opening, doors will be open until midnight tonight (December 1). Admission is $15 for adults, $12 for seniors and students (age 12-17), and $10 for children (age 2-11).
