Afternoon Cocktails at the Nasher

Posted by    |    October 9th, 2013 at 8:09 pm

Pull out your favorite Fall cocktail attire, we’ve been invited for Cyclist Happy Hour at the Nasher!

baloonsFrom 4pm-5pm Sunday October the 20th, we’ll be mosying through the Nasher garden, admiring Picasso’s talent in clay… and sipping complimentary cocktails because we arrived in style (on bikes, of course!)

It’s all for the Nasher’s 10th Anniversary weekend, AND they’re installing new BIKE RACKS! They want the cycling community to feel welcome. And we want another great excuse to visit the Nasher! And sip afternoon cocktails. And ride through town in this amazing weather!

Events at the Nasher are scheduled throughout the day Sunday, from 10am to 10pm. Here’s the full run-down. My favorite highlights are yoga in the morning, Ballet Folklorico in the street at noon, and free Cool Haus ice-cream sandwiches. The Nasher really knows how to throw a party.

A few of us will be gathering at Oak Cliff’s Oddfellow’s at 1:45pm, to depart shortly thereafter – if you’d like to meet us at Main St Garden, let us know on the Facebook Event – we’d swing by on our way, at about 2:15pm. At 2:30 is the 360 Lecture: Nasher Xchange Panel.

Have you heard of this public art display all over the City?! It’s kicking off 10 commissioned pieces being installed this month, to stay up through February. I can’t wait to hear more about the whole project. Then afterward is the wine reception. Before the Cyclist Happy Hour starts….. You need to rsvp for the 360 Xchange & reception though – just email and you’re set. Free admission, free parking, free wine, cocktails and don’t forget the art! What a lovely afternoon it will be. AND we’ll even be home by dark.

1939 W. Colorado Blvd. was designed by noted and prolific architect, Hoke Smith, as his own home for his wife and five children. Completed in 1939, this neoclassical home with one-story side wings features a full façade porch accented with hand turned columns, elaborate crown moldings, and red oak floors. The roof is made of handsome Ludowici clay tile, renowned for its beauty and durability. The heart of the house is the grand central oval-shaped staircase, which builder Roland Pelt has been known to say was the most difficult project he was ever required to build.
