The Dallas dining and beer scene is hopping, but don't let that distract you too much because there's a cooking class tonight that you really shouldn't miss. No time to dilly-dally, let's get to it:
Wednesday, March 6 Co-author of the cookbook Bouchon Bakery, Sebastien Rouxel, is hosting a demonstration on classic French pastries, scones and other items featured in the cookbook, like a crepe cake and flan Parisien, at the Central Market on Lovers Lane tonight at 6:30. The price of the class is $80, but it also includes a copy of the book. Register now. Let's do this!
FireWheel Brewing of Rowlett is hosting a keep-the-glass and meet-the-founder party tonight at Craft and Growler at 6 p.m. If you buy a pint of FireWheel's coffee porter or Texas pale, you can take home your very own fancy mason jar -- with their name on it, of course. And brewer Brad Perkinson will be milling about to answer your burning craft beer questions.
Thursday, March 7 The People's Last Stand will debut their new Thursday night Open Mic Night this week. Remember what Mom said: Go bold or go home.
Friday, March 8 Poetry night at Garden Café is baaaaaaack. Bring your best poetry and a bottle of wine for courage and enjoy a five-course meal in the garden. Doors open at 7 p.m. with dinner served at 7:45 and poetry readings at 9. Dinner is $65. Make your reservations by calling Garden Cafe at 214-887-8330.
