Since we kinda missed the 2nd already, you have another chance to support Homeward Bound Animal Rescue and give lots of pups a second chance. At the February Homeward Bound Dog Food Drive all doggy donations go towards the Bedford rescue shelter and you can enjoy some fine food truck dining and drink specials while you’re at it. Simply bring a bag of food and help Homeward Bound reach their goal of 1000 lbs of food for the shelter! It’s very possible if you do your part.

Homeward Bound Animal Rescue is dedicated to rescuing companion animals and placing them into foster homes until they can be permanently adopted. AC4D93They have an Adopt-A-Pet program carried out at PetSmarts and are fully committed to placing unwanted animals into permanent loving homes.

Fort Worth Music Festival 2012

26 Sep

Kevin Eubanks

This weekend in Fort Worth, world class music will grace the stage at the 2012 Fort Worth Music Festival (formerly Jazz By the Boulevard). Huge names like Kevin Eubanks and The Reverend Horton Heat (featured on the Rahr Stage) headline this year’s festival. You’ll come for the names but stay for the stories. One of the festival’s featured acts, The Relatives, have not recorded in over 30 years. In fact, this group was (until recently) defunct. The group hasn’t lost a beat and will surely lift festival goers’ spirits with their gospel offering.

Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires will also be in town singing his James Brown inspired funk and making sure festival goers have a ‘funky good time’! The intrigue of artists like Bradley and the Relatives add to a tremendous backstory that makes the Fort Worth Music Festival what it is. Years ago when the Caravan of Dreams was alive and well, the city was a destination amongst big town names. If you were in the area, you had to stop in and catch the night’s act or perhaps sit in. With its absence and replacement with The Bass Hall, the spirit of live music has become more refined to the chagrin of music lovers citywide.

Thank goodness for the Fort Worth Music Festival. It is a celebration Fort Worth’s rich musical heritage and everything that makes live music what it is. Crowd interaction, good food, and some of the most amazing stories from the most amazing storytellers you will ever hear.

This year’s festival’s storied lineup is one for the history books and will feature one of kind performances from the country’s most in demand artists and musicians. Tickets are still available and can be purchased at fwfest.com. The 2nd Annual Fort Worth Music Festival is September 28th and 29th at the Will Rogers Memorial Center.

Food Truck Park Opening Dec 2nd in Fort Worth

25 Nov

The Grand Opening for the Fort Worth Food Park is December 2nd! Now all the local food trucks can come to one location and offer food truckies a wider menu in one consistent spot. The grand opening for Fort Worth Food Truck Park will benefit Rexanna’s Foundation for Fighting Lung Cancer and feature live music by the Gary Kyle Band. Join Good Karma Kitchen, YES! Taco, Nammi Truck, Lee’s Grilled Cheeses, Red Jett Sweets and Jake’s Hamburgers at the NEW Fort Worth Food Park from 6:00pm to 10:00pm on Friday, Dec. 2nd!

At first city code prevented the food trucks from staying in one spot for too long or hanging out at spots that are too close to established restaurants which made it challenging for truck owners to develop a loyal following. The food park developer has purchased this area of land north of West 7th right behind Target in Montgomery Plaza, and had it wired for the trucks with plumbing installed for customers.

Once the new Fort Worth Food Truck Park opens Red Jet Sweets will be one of the first to claim the spot. The goal of the Fort Worth Food Truck, as mentioned before, is to give trucks like Red Jet Sweets (who sells cupcakes) a stable place to park where patrons can experience several different mobile kitchens all in one spot. This will allow them to catch the tastebuds of customers who frequent one area.

If you have any additional inquiries about the new food truck park in Fort Worth e-mail FWFOODPARK@gmail.com.

Most food trucks can be followed on Facebook as well as Twitter!

On December 2nd support Rexanna’s Foundation for Fighting Lung Cancer, as well as the new Food Truck Park establishment at the Grand Opening this Friday!

The location for the new park is:
2509 Weisenberger St.
Fort Worth, Texas 76107
