Built in 1907, the three-and-half story public school at 2218 Bryan Street went by many names — Main High School in 1916, Bryan Street High School in 1917, Dal-Tech High School in 1928, Crozier Technical High School in 1942 and Business Magnet School in 1976 — before it was closed in 1995. In 1996 it was added to the National Register of Historic Places. But it just sat there.
After 22 years of being abandoned and neglected, it was beautifully resurrected into a mixed-use development blending 21st conveniences with the charm of the original schoolhouse including exposed brick, the original arches, hardwood floors and oversized windows.
The moment that the Cattle Baron’s gals heard about the new space with the old-school charm, they just knew it would be perfect for a party. But it wouldn’t be just any old cocktails and music. No, siree. They were game for a new fundraising event — Poker Night!
On Thursday, September 5, guys and gals have a chance to play their best hands.
The doors will open at 6:30 p.m. with the games getting underway at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets are $250 and will get $250 worth of chips, an open bar and Stiney’s BBQ.
And while the proceeds will benefit pediatric cancer research, it’s gonna be an adults-only get together. Better book that babysitter pronto and call 214.443.9222 to get your place at the table.
