For DFW foodies, May is slated to be like the World Series of eating and drinking; with several days committed to enjoy your favorite players or root on the rookies. So get out your big jeans as we take a look at the lineup. And just like any good Rangers game you’re going to have to decide if it’s a game to share with the family or call in grandma to sit with the kids on the bench. First up: The Dallas Wine and Food Festival.
For five days, May 2 – 6, 2012, several different local landmarks (Angelika Film Center,Union Station, Dallas Farmers Market, Mockingbird Station, Nasher Sculpture Garden) become the stage for The Dallas Wine and Food Festival. Comprised of five signature events, the festival showcases local and national culinary talent and award-winning wines from The Dallas Morning News and TexSom Wine Competition, one of the largest and most highly regarded wine competitions in the U.S.
While the ultimate dinner and a movie experience called the Cinematic Feast
featuring Moonstruck and an appropriately themed five-course meal seems to be the real winner, it’s the grand finale, Tastes of the World, that everyone lines up to see. However, it’s the Friday night, Texas Salute! that I’m likely to fit into my schedule (and score my own souvenir wine glass) for only $25.

So maybe wine is not your thing and you’re more of a beer drinker? Don’t worry, we have you covered next week with The North Texas Beer Festival. Wait – there’s more: it’s a double-hitter that same weekend with the first-ever the TX Food Truck Fest. And when you thought your pants couldn’t give anymore, then prepare for the big one with the long-standing Taste Addison, which celebrates 20 years of food and fun this year.
