T he chores. The stores. Fresh air. Bybee Square … On a perfect evening among pecan and oak trees, Round Top Inn, Prost wine bar, and PaperCity hosted a country affair — a launch party for PaperCity's second biannual Round Top special section. Susanne Maida, owner of Round Top Inn and Prost wine bar, proved she's not only a wonderful innkeeper but also a swell party host. Mary Beth Burrow of Mary Beth Events and Design tented the Prost patio for the festivities and brought in a decked-out vintage Airstream trailer to serve as a de facto cocktail lounge. It seems the entire town of residents (90, says the city limits sign) and weekenders turned up, from the owners of Round Top Real Estate (Hillbolt family) to Townsend Provisions proprietors (Mosley family); the Big Red Barn's Susan Franks; weekend settlers Beverly and Tommy Jacomini; Bobby and Ann Rauch; The Vintage owners, Smoot and Paige Hull, with their children Pierce and Eisley; Walter Bering and Linda Plant with Martha Turner Sotheby's; Paris Texas Apparel owner Paul Hotze. Canopy restaurant came in to cater the evening's affair. Round Top folk know how to get a little rowdy in just the right way: drinking Round Top Inn's signature drink, Citrus Thyme Cocktail, and Deep Eddy cocktails while gossiping about how times are a-changing in the bucolic region.
