I’ve heard that movie stars’ big night out on the town is Tuesday nights because all the average people are at home resting up for work the next day. And maybe that is why last Tuesday night was the night to party at DIFF. It started, of course, at the Angelika at Mockingbird Station seeing Sironia.
So far DIFF is two for two as far as after-parties go. Not just hits, but home runs. If I knew anything about baseball I would give you that batting average stat, but I know enough to know that’s good. Hit the jump to find out why.
For the past six years, Dallas has been ushering in spring with the finest independent films. But it’s not just the late night screenings and concession stand dinners that have caused all Dallas movie lovers to make their bosses shake their heads when they stroll in late to work, coffee in hand, and desperately in need of a nap. Don’t get me wrong, the films are great but in the words of the great R. Kelly “after the show is the after party and after the party it’s the hotel lobby.” These words rang true once again after last night’s opening night screening and gala. This year, don’t just go to the movies and call it a night. Follow the after hours scene with Pearl Snap Discount.
