1. Chances are, if you’re just now rising and shining, as the title of this post suggests, you’re a student enjoying those first few special days of summer vacation. The pools in Highland Park and University Park are now open, and the heat is on. Hope you’ve been practicing your belly flop, Dan Koller.
2. Tootsies is hosting the Dallas Summer Musicals Center Stage donors for a reception tomorrow from 6 to 8 p.m. There will be wine, hors d’oeuvres, and perhaps a few show tunes?
4. And as Georgia mentioned yesterday, tonight is the first dinner-and-a-movie event for Highland Park Village Theatre. Hawaiian barbecue? Yes, please!
