We know this is terribly hard to read. So sorry! Just hit the link and then this will make more sense. Its another full day of Metalworking Fluid technology for those lucky enough to attend the STLE annual meeting in Dallas. If you're at Lockharts by 12:00 noon, Metalworking Fluid Magazine will be there to buy your beverage (STLE badge required).
The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza chronicles the assassination and legacy of President John F. Kennedy; interprets the Dealey Plaza National Historic Landmark District and the John F. Kennedy Memorial Plaza; and presents contemporary culture within the context of presidential history. The Museum is located on the sixth and seventh floors of an early 20th-century warehouse formerly known as the Texas School Book Depository.
The Old Red Courthouse is one of two must see historical sites in Dallas. It's just really cool. Every county in Texas has the original courthouse unless it burnt down. Seems they all caught fire at least once. Some were set on fire by nefarious entities seeking to destroy records of deeds (Railroads..?). This should be on your TO DO list because it's cool, very close to the convention, and won't wear you out. You can walk there from the convention, take a long lunch and really enjoy this one. It goes unnoticed too often.
Summer BBQ in Texas beats all. No state - no state - does it better. Everybody in Texas BBQ's. The problem is knowing where to go. You have heard that Sonny Bryan's is the place to go. Take it from METALWORKING FLUID MAGAZINE: Skip it. It's overrated. Historically significant, but I like real tender meat and they don't have it. Dickey's is better. But here's your can't miss trip tip: Hit the road to Lockhart Smokehouse in Oak Cliff. Located at 400 W. Davis Street, it's 3 miles from the Omni in an older part of Dallas.
The now required conference app is available from STLE. You'll need to create another account (oh boy) but then you can download it. We hope you are as excited as we are that STLE is finally coming to Dallas. We will be posting things you can and should do and see here in our hometown, and things you better not get caught doing. Why not - somebody has to do it. Welcome to Big D!
Each year, STLE's annual meeting is known for its exceptional technical content. With over 400 technical-paper presentations to choose from, a major concern for attendees is scheduling conflicts, as they sometimes miss presentations that they would like to hear or cannot share the contents with their colleagues who are unable to attend the meeting.
