The owners of the building across
Exposition Street from
the Sons of Hermann Hall (across from the side yard with the merry-go-round)
have graciously allowed us to use their parking lot. Please park on
the area labeled "Sons Parking".
There is a small parking lot directly across Elm street from the Sons of
Hermann Hall. This lot does not
belong to the Sons of Hermann Hall, but you are currently allowed to park there.
There are metered and un-metered portion of Elm
street near the Hall and on some of the surrounding streets. PLEASE
CHECK THE PARKING SIGNS CAREFULLY!
|If you park in a metered space please
remember that unlike other parts of Dallas the meters must be paid up to
midnight SEVEN DAYS A WEEK.
Parking laws in Deep Ellum are strictly enforced.
A few quarters are a lot cheaper than a parking ticket or a trip to the
|PLEASE check the

reserved spaces or in the lots belonging to any any local business with
"no parking" signs. Be sure not to park in any space
marked "Reserved for Baylor Police."
(Don't laugh - people do this!) If you park illegally your car will

companies in Deep Ellum are fast, ruthless, and expensive. Police

you parked please ask

Our side of Deep Ellum is a bit more peaceful than others but
if you are at all concerned about walking to your car after a show please
ask one of the Hall's member volunteers at the downstairs bar.
We will be glad to escort you to a nearby vehicle.
NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!
|Texas leads the nation in
alcohol-related traffic fatalities. Alcohol-related arrests in Texas
exceed 90,000 annually. Nearly half of all fatal traffic accidents
involve an alcohol-impaired driver. On average, four people are
killed in drunk driving accidents every day in Texas. We do not want
you to be one of them!
If there is even a chance you have too much please
do not take the risk! Dallas Police heavily patrol the
Deep Ellum district and DUI arrests are frequent. The legal limit is
.08 BAC and two beers are enough to put many people over the limit. Please
drink responsibly! We stock a variety of non-alcoholic
beverages and a designated driver is always the best idea.
As of this writing, a first offense DUI conviction in Texas carries a fine up to
$2,000, from 3 to 120 days in jail, and a license suspension from 90 days
to 1 year. A second offense is at least 30 days in jail, a
suspended license for at least 6 months, and up to a $4,000 fine. A
third offence requires at least two years in prison!
Add to these legal fees, which are often higher than the fines.
A DUI arrest will be very expensive and conviction includes mandatory
jail time. It's not worth the risk!
Texas has a zero tolerance policy for DUI so
please do not take a chance! Drink responsibly,
designate a non-drinking driver, or take a cab home.
Going to jail (or worse) is a terrible way to end your evening
and, at the very least, a DUI arrest is embarrassing and expensive. Very
expensive. We want you to get home safely so please ask and we
will be happy to help arrange safe transportation.
We love having you visit the Sons of Hermann Hall and want to
have you back again soon!
