Stamp anything with the name of “Perot” on it and you just know it’s going to break from tradition. First, the announcement comes that the 180,000-square-foot Perot Museum of Nature and Science was ahead of schedule and going to opening Saturday, December 1. Ahead of schedule? Seriously? Yup!
Now, the posh November 17th gala, “Discover the Perot” that Kelly and Brock Compton are co-chairing with Sally and Forrest Hoglund are honorary co-chairing is approaching a “It’s too late” status for tickets. And don’t go a thinking, you can buy just one ticket. No. All that’s left are packages of 10 going for $2,500.
In addition to being with some very swell types, you’ll get one of the first looks and wander of this world-shaking museum two weeks before the rest of the world. Word on the street is that the world is going to be visiting the museum in the days and years to come.
