On to this week: Several of the food trucks will be at The Village Apartments on Tuesday. Wednesday brings Crate & Barrel pop-up, as well as “The Food Truck Experience” at Sigel’s Greenville. Bite Nights in Addison continue.
Thursday night features several food trucks in the Dallas Arts District for Aurora 2013.
This week, we add Bombay Street Food and The Pickled Carrot. Bombay Street Food is our first Indian fare truck, brought by the same people behind the bricks’n'mortar locations of Bombay ChopStix in Richardson and Las Colinas. The Pickled Carrot is serving up banh mi sandwiches, primarily in Denton since the regulations have eased in that city.
Good Karma Kitchen demonstrates why running a food truck can be more difficult than a bricks’n'mortar restaurant. They won’t be out this week, as their truck “Lucy” threw a rod and will be need a new engine.
With that, we have our schedule for the week. Always check Facebook and Twitter before venturing out! Continue reading "Oct 15 Food Truck News and Schedule in Dallas/Ft. Worth"4 Comments »
The largest commercial beer competition in the world took place this weekend in Denver, Colorado. Judges at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival handed out 254 medals. The most significant one, to us anyway, is the gold medal they bestowed on Peticolas Brewing Company’s Royal Scandal, one of 29 entries in the Classic English-Style Pale Ale. Not bad for a brewery that has only been open since January!
Rahr & Sons Brewing in Fort Worth returned home with silver medal in the Scotch Ale competition for their Iron Thistle and Humperdinks Restaurant and Brewery in Dallas won a bronze medal in American-Style Amber Lager for their Uberbrau. H/T to Disher BL.6 Comments »
The only thing that’s wrong with Dallas is the brevity of fall. It lasts all of three weeks. Maybe four, if we’re lucky. But whatever God-sent perfect weather we have now is making want to devour everything that’s remotely pumpkin-related. If you’re crazy about pumpkins, too, jump here for the list of pumpkin favorites. Feast your eyes on these food beauties.
The great Glenn Mitchell, host of KERA’s The Glenn Mitchell Show, once asked me if people who make a living waiting on tables prefer to be called waiters/waitresses or servers. I replied servers. I was a guest on his show at the time and the phone lines lit up with servers who demanded to be referred to as waiters/waitresses and vice versa. At the end of the hour, we tallied the votes and it was dead even.
That was 2004. I’m curious to hear from the masses now: What shall we call you?
BTW, I’ve come up with a new term for obnoxious foodies: Dishbags. Like it?6 Comments »
Is your upcoming Wednesday looking dreadfully event-less this week? No fear, we’ve compiled some cool things-to-do to keep you entertained until the weekend. And your taste buds will thank you, too.
Goodfriend Beer Garden & Burger House First Anniversary
It’s hard to believe that Goodfriend Beer Garden & Burger House opened just one year ago and helped to change the crime-ridden atmosphere of East Dallas into a community hangout. Owners Matt Tobin and Josh Yingling are celebrating their first anniversary this Wednesday, October 17 with some pretty spectacular drink specials from their acclaimed beer collection. Featured brews include Great Divide 18, Stone 16, Real Ale Barrel Aged 15, Ommegang Independence Day 2012, Deschutes Black Butte 24, and Real Ale Scots Gone Wild. Aside from the drinking festivities, a guest band will take the stage at 10 p.m., followed by a Slick 57 reunion set. The celebration starts at 4 p.m. and lasts all night long until closing so put on your drinking hats if you’re game for good time.
