The fall colors of amber, gold, and blinding red are upon us, and as the long summer days draw to an end, now is the perfect time to appreciate those closest to us before the Christmas rush. These crisp autumn evenings are perfect for sipping cider, sitting around a bonfire, and giving thanks for those we love. Why not enjoy the change in season with a festive jaunt to Midtown Crossing?
As you peruse festive autumn décor at Hutch and The Afternoon, enjoy the sights and smells that fall has ushered into this bustling community. The aromas of cinnamon and apple cider, hot chocolate, and other warm brews can be found floating from any one of the many Midtown Crossing eateries, including the Culprit Café or Café Costa, which both serve warm beverages to sip while you shop. Not only are the restaurants conveniently located and within walking distance; plenty of convenient parking inspires group get-togethers as friends and family come home for the holidays.
Need to get started with your holiday décor? After gaining inspiration from the gorgeous autumn hues, take the family for a trip Corky Boards, where you can create the perfect wooden wall hanging for your front door or family room. This activity is ideal for any group or occasion, from a birthday get-together to a first date. After your sip and paint, admire your handiwork while rehydrating with one of Thirst Tea Café’s dozens of flavor-infused teas, which feature a variety of toppings, including Boba!
Coming soon, the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema is undergoing a $2.5 million renovation, which will soon accommodate five screens, the Liquid Sunshine Taproom, and include cushioned recliner seats! After your day at the movies, grab a bite at any one of Midtown Crossing’s numerous bars, cafes, and restaurants!
Chill weather means that comfort food is now on the menu, and the restaurants at Midtown Crossing aren’t missing a beat. Sample a seasonal margarita at Cantina Laredo, or 5168 Brewing Tap Room’s seasonal ale after a day of fun, food, and shopping. Still hungry for more? Try some delicious vegan comfort food at Modern Love, or dive into a juicy cheeseburger at Leadbelly! If something more refined is on the menu, The Grey Plume has romantic ambiance and an extensive wine menu. If your sweet tooth still needs satisfying, Cold Stone Creamery is open year-round. Try concocting your own version of a night by the bonfire with a s’mores flavored sundae with hot fudge and graham crackers to truly end the day on a sweet note.
