Statler Hotel Outing

 


Architecture and history inspired photographers at the July 21 Outing to the Dallas Statler Hotel. The legendary hotel was nationally prominent in the 1950s-60s and was renovated in 2017-18.

Above, from left, Steve Baldwin, Dave Roberts, Julie Delio, Beverly Rozanski and Outings Chair Dick Dodds. Dick's son, Graham, is the culinary director of the hotel's five restaurants. Here's Dick's report:

We enjoyed breakfast at Over Easy restaurant, which that week was awarded “Dallas Best Breakfast” by D Magazine.

Graham gave us a tour, pointing out historic murals and art. These included a 4-lane bowling alley, Asian décor and the Bourbon and Banter bar, modelled after a speakeasy. Julie remembers when it was a barber shop in the 1960s. The Waterproof rooftop bar recently was named by D magazine Best Rooftop bar. We even went into the lavish ladies’ restroom to see the ornate gold fittings and “fuzzy” cushions!

The group braved the heat to find images at the Municipal Building; where Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald in 1963; Neiman Marcus flagship; former Adolphus Hotel, built by Adolph Busch, with its Century Room celebrating Texas’ 1936 Centennial (outdoor adornment, left); Scottish Rite Cathedral; and, the beautiful chapel of Dallas Presbyterian Church.

Bring your clothing-to-logo to a meeting

If you have an article of clothing on which you would like Red Dog Studios to embroider our FWCC logo, please bring it enclosed in a plastic bag (preferably) with the following information on it:  

  • Name
  • Phone number
  • Logo color preferred
  • Describe your enclosed item

Would be nice to safety pin the note so your item will not accidentally get separated from your instructions.  You can also purchase new items from Red Dog Studios (closed week of July 4).

Final logo price will be determined by number embroidered at one time.  Estimate is around $6.50.

Susan Horton will collect your items and take them to Red Dog Studios, saving you a trip to the "parking impaired" area of West Seventh area!  Of course, you can drop them off yourself if you prefer.
