OU-Texas is on the horizon, and if you’re looking for a chic spot to cheer on the Sooners, Dallas hotel The Joule has got you covered. Designed by award-winner Adam D. Tihany, the revamp of the neo-Gothic landmark building from the 1920s includes a vast art collection that serves as its holy grail, with works by Tony Cragg, Tony Tasset, Andy Warhol, and Richard Phillips. For sports fans and art lovers, The Joule is the perfect place to gear up and get ready for the Red River Rivalry. Tim Headington, owner of the hotel, was inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame in 2013, and is an OU alumnus who has remained an avid supporter of the Sooners. With that in mind, Headington helped create a powerhouse package for OU-Texas weekend.
The OK, BOOMER! Special includes two complimentary tickets to The Joule’s kickoff cocktail reception on Friday, Oct. 8, as well as a complimentary tailgate to-go breakfast for two on the morning of the game, plus complimentary valet with a welcome amenity. Jeny Bania, Chief Marketing Officer of Headington Companies, said that The Joule’s goal is to serve as the “unofficial HQ for Sooner fans on OU weekend.”
As an ongoing treat, The Joule’s Art in the Endzone package “provides two complimentary tickets for a VIP art tour of Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, plus a welcome tailgate kit with game day snacks, cocktails, and beers. It’s the perfect option if you’re a sports and arts fanatic and unable to join us for this year’s OU weekend, as it’s available Monday through Thursday throughout the fall season.”
Still wondering if it’s worth the hype? Bania also said that The Joule will be opening Tony Tasset’s famed Eye sculpture to its collection on OU-Texas weekend, when guests will be provided with “a fun and one-of-a-kind photo opportunity, as well as the opportunity to win a night’s stay at The Joule via a social media giveaway.” As regular sponsors of artistic events such as the Dallas Art Fair and the annual contemporary auction benefiting the Dallas Museum of Art and AMFAR, The Joule goes above and beyond what most art-lovers seek in their weekend staycations.
