Things are getting hoppy around Dallas. With all of the buzz about new craft breweries in the area, we were not surprised to hear that the Trinity Trust was hosting its kick-off event for new River Rats and Rat Pack members at the soon-to-open Four Corners Brewing Company

Even non-beer enthusiasts enjoyed the cool evening, with entertainment by Larry g(EE), tasty ribs and (other) drinks in the open space still reminiscent of the former automotive shop. 

"We were glad to give you a little 'taste' of what is to come in the Trinity Groves development area of West Dallas," said Mary McDermott Cook, chair of Trinity Trust. She was referring to the area at the foot of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, featuring new restaurants, shops, art museum, park and theater.  

At the party, guests went on brewery tours, sipped on brown and pale ales, and joined the River Rats and Rat Packs — groups that support the Trinity Project by spreading awareness about the plans with soirees, speakers and outdoorsy events — in their efforts to "bridge the Trinity, for the love of the city." 

That's a cool kind of recruitment. 

Seen with a rib in hand was Gail Thomas, president and CEO of the Trinity Trust, beside her husband, Bob. Among the 300 guests dotting the room were Cristin and Ben ParkerEmily Tett, Natalie AkilianAndy McLainJessica Pritchard, George Edwards, Tierney Kaufman, Steve Owen, Lynn and Allan McBee, and Cachet Petty and Bill Weinberg
