Countdown hopping

A few fond notes on the big night Monday: The city auditioned Victory Park as its central meeting space.

In 10 words or less: Dallas’ Times Square – not so much, but yeehaw anyway.

How happening: Crickets chirping early on, then a late boom.

Who was there: Inspiringly motley crew of Stars fans, civic boosters and the Cotton Bowl-bound.

Prime real estate: Near the front of any beer line.
