And while we're on the subject of the Trinity River -- like, when aren't we, right -- this single-day shindig sounds rather fascinating: On November 16, designers from all around the country -- including well-regarded lighting pioneer Leni Schwendinger; waterfront expert Ann Breen and so-called "green" landscape planner-designer Ignacio Bunster-Ossa -- will gather at City Hall and The Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture for a conference devoted to Designing the Trinity.
It's a Trinity Trust event, and Mayor Tom Leppert's among the scheduled speakers. But anyone can attend: Registration's here, for the low, low price of $60. So you'd best hurry: Word is Schutze is buying all the tickets under the names of several holding companies. --Robert Wilonsky
