Come join the Preservation Dallas Young Professionals as we kick off our Spring 2015 season of events with a networking happy hour. Cold Beer Company is a great example of how adaptively reusing an old structure can help preserve the character and feel of a neighborhood. This standalone structure between Deep Ellum and Fair Park was constructed in 1938 and was most well-known as the old Vern's Place. After sitting abandoned for a number of years, it was purchased, renovated, and reopened as a neighborhood-friendly bar. Other than a few small additions, it is still the same building that has resided at this location for over 75 years. This is a come-and-go, free event. Everyone is welcome. New members can join Preservation Dallas at the event and "pay your age" for a reduced price membership.
