For those of us who do NOT enjoy spending our weekends sucking in our stomachs for photographers, there is now another way to enjoy the sexy and exclusive pool club Ku De Ta in Old East Dallas. But it is only for one night. The Top Rung Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to improving the Dallas community by raising money for different charities, is having a party this Friday night and we are all invited.

Independence Day is upon us and we plan to celebrate in grand fashion, which means the staff can sleep in tomorrow, hit the lake and hopefully work on that much needed tan. In the mean time we will all no doubt be celebrating tonight to get a head start on the party and fireworks. Addison’s Kaboom Town provides one of the most spectacular shows in the area, and is ranked one of the top in the nation.
We give all the fun details about the choreographed music and band stands set up in Addison, but we also wanted to share with you today some of the best views to watch the airshow and fireworks. You will want to head out early and stake your claim to a sweet spot. If you are off work early today you can beat the rush to some of these locations which we selected as the very best.
