It feels like I’m writing about the Design District every other day. Pretty soon – and before we know it – the Design District will be competing with East Dallas and Oak Cliff for its hipness factor. Is it catching up? Definitely. With Ft33, Ascension Coffee, and the anticipated gourmet store, Food Boutique, the Design District is quickly becoming a food and drink destination, especially with the grand openings of its second brewing company on January 19. (Editor’s note: Our first version said “first” brewing company. It’s now updated with the correct information.)
If you can’t wait until Saturday, the Community Beer Company (not the most inventive name, but we like the meaning behind it) is pre-launching its brand spankin’ new craft beers at the Meddlesome Moth from 5 to 7 p.m. tonight. They’ll be tapping a few of their ales and lagers right up until the grand opening brewery tours this Saturday and Sunday. Take a look at all the events that are happening this week on the Community’s calendar.
