Alpha Testing Dallas once again teamed up with Archer Western and HNTB for the CANstruction Dallas competition.
“Our companies are working toward advances in transportation, including the highways, rail, airports, and BEYOND! Our structure is a depiction of the next era of space travel, leaving the balmy waves of Florida and looking toward Mars. While we work toward making your commutes better now and plan for the commutes of the future, one thing we CAN all work on is to eradicate hunger in our community. Let’s work together to rid Dallas of hunger today.” https://canstructiondallas2018.causevox.com/team/blastingouthunger
The entries are on display at NorthPark Center in Dallas until September 22nd, so make sure you check it out! Many thanks to all who participated, especially Jordan Koskelin and Hannah McAdams who represented Alpha on build day!
In what has become an Alpha Testing tradition, here are some of the youngest (and not quite as young) members of the Alpha family on their first day of school. There are some on their first day of school ever, and others who are celebrating their last first day of school. Thanks for sending in all the great photos!
In the heart of Downtown Lewisville, a vintage style craft coffee cafe, “The Perc Coffeehouse”, is the perfect place to “Perc” up or chill down after a long, hard work week. If you head over there before summer is over, you can try one of their summer specials like a Cold Brew Milkshake (made with good ol’ Texas Blue Bell) or a Strawberry Latte. Live music performances can be seen and heard every Friday and Saturday night from 7-10pm.
Head on over to rehydrate and recharge while enjoying a fun, classic atmosphere. Visit their website at www.perccoffeehouse.com to check out the live performance line-up and see more menu options or have it delivered to you when you order through Uber Eats.
