Local Lady We Love, and Where to Meet Her
Meet Susan Friedman. Her PR company represents everything from the Bud Light Pro Fight Series to the Wounded Warrior Project's half-marathon, and after slaving away on a 15hr Monday, she likes nothing more than kicking back at Vickery Park with a few drinks. Reasons we love her: 1) She's 5'11" and still drives a Miata. ("I get a lot of 'How do you fit?' comments."), 2) she has absolutely no regrets about coloring her hair pink while she was at TCU, 3) she's absolutely convinced that the Pussycat Dolls have enough bling to win a fight against Jem and the Holograms purely by blinding them, and 4) she's adamant that the original Green Room had the best jukebox in all of Deep Ellum.
