When successful people socialize, there's usually a crescendo of energy as they attempt to outwit each other. This ends either in an entertaining back-and-forth or terribly snarky dialogue. Either way, it's usually a lot of fun to watch. That's why Writers in the Round should be a hoot. Three writers -- Melanie Wells, Will Clarke and Harry Hunsicker -- and one musician -- Trish Murphy -- will tell some stories and just rap, free of charge, at the Belmont Hotel, 901 Fort Worth Ave., from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday. Call 1-877-476-3378.
Thu., July 17, 6:30-8:30 p.m., 2008
KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
