The Down Syndrome Guild of Dallas will have their primary fundraiser at Victory Plaza this Sunday, November 4, starting at 11AM. The DSG wants everyone to come join in the festivities, including lots of activities for kids. The actual walk is a 1K tour around the AAC at 1PM.
The food trucks included are some of Dallas’ best and easily in my Top 10. Participating trucks include Ruthie’s Grilled Cheese, Nammi, Good Karma Kitchen, Easy Slider, The Butcher’s Son, and Gandolfo’s NY Deli. Dessert trucks include Trailercakes and Enticed Shaved Ice.
At any second during a dinner at Café des Artistes, the waiters and waitresses could break into song.
Don’t be alarmed. It won’t be Disney-style. It’s classy dinner and free entertainment at the One Arts Plaza, starting next week when Alberto Lombardi’s new restaurant opens doors to the public. Inside of the plush, velvety red room of Café des Artistes, you could be munching on a croque-madame with béchamel and cured ham until, suddenly, bartender Preston Cole (a music extraordinaire, apparently) starts busting out tunes on the grand piano.1 Comment »
