Happy Sunday Foxy People!
Today, I want to switch things up a bit. Fortunately for my mommy, yes I said mommy lol, we were able to purchase tickets and attend the DFW Restaurant Week Food & Wine Festival yesterday (Saturday). Love you girl! lol. I figured this post would be a great way to share a Foodie Experience with all of you! Who knows, it may even inspire you to attend a food festival in your local areas.
This festival in particular spanned over 2 days (Friday and Saturday) and it had options for attendance on Friday only or Saturday only. There was an upgraded option for each day where you can join a Wine Tasters Club. It wasn’t that bad in price in comparison to the general entry. I think about an additional $20 or so. This allowed you to sample 5 different wines over your time at the event. Of course like many festivals, you have options to do All Access Passes that gives you entry for the entire event. After checking all of the options, I opted to go for the Saturday entry only Wine Tasters Club option. This is great for wine lovers like me and they had sparkling, red, and white wines galore!
In regards to the food, I must say that I expected more restaurants. There were about 8 restaurants that had representatives there with samples. I know that seems to be a lot, but I’ve been to festivals that had more than 15 booths. I would say they did have some restaurants that you may have already known like, the Keg or Seasons 52. That’s always good to have fan favorites. I would say that I didn’t see too many Vegetarian friendly options, but that’s not new lol. That’s typical at most places.
There was a ticket system at this event. The tickets that included food and drinks all night were a little pricey for my taste, but if you would like to go that route and not pay for anything once you got to the event, it would be best. The food and drinks needed to be purchased with tickets and similar to the state fair, it can get pricey lol.
They had live music as well here. That makes it great for a date night or a girls night on the town. A nice touch at any event.
Overall, would I go to this event again next year? Yes! I won’t be focused on the food so much, but it’s great to just be there and experience all of the live music and ultimately, free drinks all night.
I hope this inspires you to maybe give food festivals a try. At least it’s something new and who knows, you may want to go again next year.
