2012 Margarita Meltdown | 2nd Annual Dallas Margarita Fest

13 May

Margarita Meltdown comes to the Bishop Arts area on Sunday, May 27th. At the 2012 Dallas Margarita Meltdown Dallas restaurants bring contenders together who mix their best margarita and offer samples to the public. It’s $25 to get in, and part of the proceeds will benefit La Voz del Anciano (The Voice of the Elderly), which is a local non-profit that has made it their goal to serve the needs of the elderly Latino population.

The 2nd Annual Dallas Margarita Fest gives locals the opportunity to sample a margarita from each DFW restaurant and vote for his or her favorite “Rita” mix. In addition to great drinks one can expect street food and live DJ’s providing pumping music while strolling through Bishop Arts of Oak Cliff. On Sunday, May 27th find out who will be titled “The Best Margarita in Dallas”; or better yet, you be the judge! It may be election year, but senators and political leaders aren’t the only thing we’re voting for!

The festival will take place from 3pm to 10pmin the historic Bishop Arts District between 7th and 8th street. What better place to have a margarita fest than in this most eclectic part of town?

Who’s coming?
Hacienda on Henderson, Mesa, Veracruz Café, Smoke, Nova, El Ranchito, La Calle Dolce, Sfuzzi and more!

The Dallas Margarita Meltdown after party will be held at Nova: 10pm – 2am

Taste Addison 2012

13 May

Let “Festival Season” in DFW commence with the 2012 Taste Addison! Your tastebuds won’t know what hit them after an evening spent circling the best eateries Addison has to offer. With over 60 restaurants from the area participating, tasters can enjoy generous helpings of the menus at reduced prices. Some call them samples, while others call them taste tests, but no matter select items are showcased on these menus. The three day festival will be held at Addison Circle May 18-20 so you have all weekend for eating the “Best of Belt Line Rd”.

While the focus of the Taste of Addison of course is delicious fare, other family friendly activities will add to the food festival. Musical entertainment, wine tasting seminars, celebrity chef demonstrations, carnival rides, midway games and kids entertainment can also be found at Taste of Addison 2012.
