Big Texas Beer Fest
Saturday marks the second annual BTBF, where brews from around the state, country and world will be on hand for sippin’ and samplin’. YES, I’ve been a wine and cocktail girl for the time you’ve known me, but I’ve seen the light where beers are concerned, especially when they’re paired with great food. The 2 p.m. Fair Park event, which will also feature 10 food trucks, is sold out, and no tix will be sold at the door, so unless you can do some swapping action with someone who has tix, you are all but out of luck! Buuuut, stay tuned to my musings on beer via Twitter.
No-Tie Dessert Party
Saturday night also marks the annual No-Tie Dinner‘s dessert party, at Frontiers of Flight Museum. AIDS Services of Dallas’ biggest fundraiser has a fun theme this year: Desserts-a-Go-Go, and guests are encouraged to dress in raucous ’60s style. As always, the event features numerous Dallas dining spots serving up their signature sweets, all to the sounds of toe-tapping music. Oh, and did I mention Whiskey-a-Go-Go cocktails? Yes! Tickets are $50 and benefit ASD, which provides needed services to local residents living with HIV/AIDS.
