I don’t think I’ve ever seen Savor Dallas co-founder Jim White frown. See him to the left with his wife and Savor Dallas co-founder Vicki Briley-White (left) and Dee and Charles Wyly? They are all so happy. Why? Because:
Nearly 4,000 guests attended events at the Fifth Annual Savor Dallas March 6 and 7, with increases in guests at Friday night events in the Arts District and in Victory Park.
Savor Dallas’ preliminary estimates show that attendance at Friday night’s Arts District Wine Stroll and Victory Park Wine & Food Celebration exceeded 2008 attendance by 200 plus guests, with a total of 1,230 guests. Guest numbers for Saturday night’s International Grand Tasting are estimated to be slightly lower than 2008’s figures, with attendance at 2,150. The Reserve Tasting, featuring the year’s finest wines from top vintners, enjoyed an increase in attendance. Wine seminars enjoyed healthy attendance this year, with a new location at the Westin City Center. Total weekend attendance is estimated at around 4,000, nearly matching last year’s numbers.
