Sometimes, the stars really do align just for us. Like tonight.
There’s a foodie event at Fair Park that features delicious food from top chefs like Stephan Pyles and Kent Rathbun, live music from a rockin’ country band, and cocktails from Tito’s Handmade Vodka – all without having to purchase food coupons or reject the sexual advances of single-toothed carnies.
Tonight, the 16th Annual Farmers Market Friends Hoedown boot-scoots into Fair Park and we can’t wait to put on our boots, jeans and gingham shirt before chowing down on food prepared with locally grown ingredients.
Everything about the event celebrates the local food movement, from produce and meats to wine and booze. There will be more than 30 vendors sampling their wares, plus celebrity chefs on-hand to feed us until we’re stuffed (but we’re so skinny it only takes the pimento from a green olive and one sunflower seed until we’re full, so they’ll make money on us for sure!). Oh wait, there’s wine, beer and cocktails, too, so we may just drink up all the profits. Sorry!
If you love food, wine, farmers or all three under one roof – join us as we eat our way through the Food & Fiber Pavilion at Fair Park, test our luck to win prizes on the Wheel of Produce (Come on, Cumquat!), and rub elbows with foodies, local celebrities and plenty of cute cowboys.
