M Streets Meet and Greet

Hugh Nini and Neal Treadwell hosted tonight’s meet and greet in the M Streets. Hugh and Neal have one of the most beautiful homes in the neighborhood, and their house was on the M Streets Home Tour in 2003 when I chaired the event.

Tonight’s guests had great questions about the Arts District (which I’m passionate about, for both cultural and economic reasons), Love Field, the city’s non-discrimination ordinance, and, of course, the Blackwood proposal.

Hugh and Neal’s spread of food was amazing, and the hosts and guests alike were comforted to know that Hugh and Neal’s beautiful Irish Setter, Reba, was sure to clean up any dropped hors d’oeuvres. Good dog!

Thanks again to Hugh and Neal for opening their beautiful home to my campaign.


Greenland Hills (M Streets) Neighborhood Association Christmas Party

Tonight I attended my third party of the day, visiting the Greenland Hill’s holiday party in Glencoe Park. M Streets residents were treated to cookies, hot chocolate, and carriage rides around the neighborhood. St. Nick even made an appearance!

Neighbors rode around the neighborhood in horse-drawn carriages to view the Christmas lights and decoration. (Paul and I spent a good bit of time earlier this week hanging lights, with the help of our wonderful neighbor Tony and his friend Richard.)
