Building Excitement

Rockitecture 2013 brings on the buttresses and booze


Thursday night won't be the first time we've downed a beer in a post office. (Last Monday's deadline-beating tax return warranted celebration. Don't judge us.)

But it might be the first time that drinking in a government building is officially sanctioned.

It all takes place at Rockitecture 2013, an evening celebrating great design and architecture in the recently restored Federal Building and Post Office, including Judge Sarah T. Hughes’ historic courtroom.

Architecture lovers will be swooning, but so will those who don't know the difference between wainscot and Wayne Gretzky.

That's because there will be stylish cocktails, plenty of awesome bites and live music, along with a silent auction filled with one-of-a-kind products and experiences.

 Rundown Reward:
Win two free tix: Submit your name, e-mail address, and phone number here by 11:59p tonight for your chance to win.

Splurge for VIP admission and enjoy a sunset viewing of the Dallas skyline, a behind-the-scenes talk about this historic part of downtown, and an extra hour of boozin' it up on the rooftop.

Because you'll need that extra hour to appreciate all the Palladian windows, ogee arches, and fenestration patterns our fair city has to offer.
