Burger Fest Dallas 2013 – Deep Ellum

17 Sep

burgerfestSink your teeth into not just one juicy burger, but two! In fact, let’s make it a BurgerFest this Saturday in Deep Ellum! True Texans know how to make or better yet, EAT a big flavorful burger, whether it’s made of beef or beats. (We definitely have some vegetarians and vegans who know how to work in the kitchen and have given beef-only burger bars a run for their money!) Whether you’re after the cow flesh or the farmed alternative they can all be found at the 2013 Burger Festival in Deep Ellum of Dallas. If it comes between two buns with lettuce, cheese, tomatoes, onions, pickles, ..then it’s available. Anything BURGER-related, minus the “King”, is festival friendly on this day.

The 2013 BurgerFest is brought to you by the same genius foodies of the first ever North Texas Taco Festival which took place back in April 2013! (Shout out to Entree Dallas and Taco Trail.) Some of the vendors who will be at BurgerFest in Deep Ellum on Saturday, September 21st include:

Maple & Motor, Ten Bells Tavern, Rodeo Goat and Whiskey Cake just to name a few. While bite size burgers are the focus of this festival, dessert and ice cream vendors will also be on location along with a beer garden, “VIP lounge” and live music. You can find the “Festival of Burgers” event right along the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market on Main Street in Deep Ellum.

BurgerFest is this Saturday, 9/21 from 11am to 5pm at 2800 Main Street, Dallas!

After you’ve stuffed your face with some burgers, walk it off in the Deep Ellum Fall Gallery Walk also taking place this Saturday between noon and 8pm. Click here to see the map for Galleries.

The Outdoor Market will be going on at the same time so you can munch on delicious tacos AND browse the market!

A Chef Cookoff will also be taking place at this year’s North Texas Taco Festival. This is where chefs are removed from their own kitchens and placed out in the open against each other to create the bestest taco in the land. Yes, we’re taking the taco-making back into the streets! If you’d like to be one of the taste-testers of these creations, there will be a raffle held to sample tacos from each of the five chefs. Then qualified judges will determine the final winner. Whether classic, urban, unique or chic, enjoy taco eating and taco feeding at this salsafied taco meeting Sunday, 4/20 at the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market!

Pegasus Plaza Outdoor Market Dallas – Fridays in October

5 Oct

You’re about to have another reason to #TGIF! Every Friday in the month of October the Pegasus Plaza Outdoor Market will be open for business! What IS that you might ask!? It’s a weekly market located in Downtown Dallas that will have live music, fresh produce, handmade crafts and other cool stuff, all at the fingertips of downtown employees and YOU if you dare to venture downtown on a Friday. Teaming up to sponsor this weekly outdoor October special, if you will, is The Deep Ellum Outdoor Market and Downtown Dallas Inc. If you didn’t know already, Pegasus Plaza is located at the corner of Main Street and Akard. To apply be a participating vendor at this market click here. The main purpose of the Pegasus Plaza Outdoor Market is giving downtown workers an exciting alternative to the normal lunchtime experience. I personally think they’re trying to push people outside of their cubes, into the fresh “fall” air and expose them to the Central Business District. They’re doing this between the hours of 11am and 3pm, just in time for that 3 o’clock slump. Yeah you know how that goes. We’ll see who’s taking extra long lunch breaks every Friday this month. When it comes time to point the finger, blame Downtown Dallas Inc. and Deep Ellum Outdoor Market for the afternoon distractions.

Pegasus Outdoor Market is sponsored by DEOM & Downtown Dallas Inc

Not only is the Deep Ellum Outdoor Market trying to bring people to the streets of their neighborhood, they’re also making an effort to give exposure to their local artists and businesses. How’s that for cultivating an artistic booming community? Deep Ellum is such a unique community itself that it needs the support of people throughout the Metroplex who also share the desire for an alternative to DFW’s mainstream. Here’s some instruction on how to get your own booth and become a vendor.

The Dates for the Pegasus Plaza Outdoor Market are October 7th, 14th, 21st & 28th. It looks like the Outdoor Market will be back in November & December as well. Check here for future Market Dates.

Now try saying “Pegasus Plaza” 8 times fast! Orrr just head downtown on your lunch break (unless you work in Arlington or Grapevine or something) and enjoy the closest thing we have to our own little “New York City” before you become too tongue tied. I swear, if Dallas doesn’t stop trying to become more downtown busy-city-like…Our New Years Eve celebration is already getting bigger and bigger each year filling the streets of Victory Park. What will they come up with next?! Talking pigeons with New England accents like on Bolt?! Stay tuned….because at this rate, it’s definitely possible.

Stay clicked in for the next market Oct 15th at Indiana Boulevard. Deep Ellum Outdoor Markets will be every 3rd Saturday of the month for the rest of the year!
