The Where We Were

Old maps are a great way of decorating. Whether framed or under glass on the coffee table, they offer a unique sense of character and sophistication. And they're a lot cheaper than paying the ego-inflated prices of original art. To see how they might look on your walls (oh, and get a lesson in Texas geography at the same time), head to the Old Red Museum, 100 S. Houston St., for Going to Texas: Five Centuries of Texas Maps, on display through February 23, 2008. Call 214-7455-1100 or visit oldred.org.

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.
