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. All carnival rides range between $3 and $7. Some of my favorite restaurants that are sure to be at Taste Addison 2012 include: BJ’s, Buttons, Blue Mesa, Freebirds World Burrito, Los Lupes, On the Border, Pastazio’s Pizza, Clay Pit and Tiff’s Treats.

Free Outdoor Spring Concert Series at Mockingbird Station

3 Mar

Finally a Free Concert series is coming to Mockingbird Station! This is their first time doing it and it’s bound to go well. The location is just right and the weather is warming up so why not bring some live music to Mockingbird Lane? The 2012 Spring Outdoor Concert Series kicks off March 1st and will be every 1st and 3rd Thursday until July 5th. Sounds of a variety of local artists will ring throughout the hip shopping spot found right off Hwy 75 (North Central Expressway). It’ll all be coming from the Mezzanine Level in front of the Angelika Dallas Film Center.

    Dates: Every 3rd Thursday of the Month in Spring
    (Mar 1, Mar 15, April 5, April 19, May 3, May 17, June 7, June 21, July 5)
    Time: 6pm – 9pm
    Location: Mockingbird Station in front of the Angelika Theatre
    (5307 E. Mockingbird Lane, Dallas)

The Concerts will be held right in front of the Angelika

Check out the Lineup!

March 1: Club Wood

Although this is a “Spring” concert series, the shows will go well into early summer. Plus spring is short-lived in North Texas, if it occurs at all, so bring a lawn chair and cool drink or find something to cool off with from a nearby eatery (i.e. Vapianos, Cold Stone Creamery, Rockfish, Café Express, Urban Taco or Starbucks). You’ve sat in traffic most of the evening anyways so why not ring in the weekend (on Thursday nights) with Mockingbird Station’s Free spring concerts? The DART stops right there at Mockingbird Lane too!

Keep an eye on Mockingbird Station this year. They seem to be adding a nice list of fun activities and events to their calendar. If you don’t hear it from us first, you’ll hear it from them.

*Parking is Free around the stores, and the garage is also be available for complimentary parking.
