Andrea's headed back from Dallas City Hall, where she stopped by the 21st Century City Shindig to katch some Kotkin. But before she left, she caught City Manager Mary Suhm's noontime announcements concerning big doings down on the Trinity. This is what Andrea just posted in the comments:


"I really enjoyed this kind of session," says Suhm. "I do want to take the opportunity to get you to mark your calendars."

"This spring we will be opening the Standing Wave," says Suhm. "If you haven't got a kayak now, go get it." Ask for it for Christmas, she says.

Hold 14, 15, 16 of October 2011 for the opening of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. "Anything that significant is going to take three days of celebration."


I am underwhelmed. Are you? Should I not be? Help?

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
