For me, there’s no better way to tour a home than with other architecture aficionados. With cocktail in hand, you can move room-to-room with other like-minded people as you each find points of interest to share. That’s part of what I love about the Dallas Architecture Forum‘s 365 Modern Living Cocktail Receptions. This series covers some of the modern architectural treasures that Dallas holds in such a relaxed, open way. It’s part lecture and Q&A, part social hour as attendees can chat with the designers in a creation of their very own.

This year’s series, which features three incredible properties in some of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Dallas, kicks off on Tuesday, May 5, at 6 p.m. with a Frank Welch-designed modern with traditional touches in Greenway Parks. The reception lasts until 8, with a talk from the designer at roughly 6:45. You can still buy season passes for this unique series, which cost $250 for two passes for Dallas Architecture Forum members, and $300 for two passes for non-members. Purchase tickets on the Forum’s website, and find out more about the other events in the series, which are scheduled for May 19 and June 17.
