The Best Food and Drink Events for The Week, May 15 - 21
Cuban Dulceria in Carrollton is having their 4th Annual Cuban Nostalgia event this weekend.
In addition to the weekly line up of culinary and drink-ary events, it's American Craft Beer Week. There are so many things to do, you're head will spin. Let's get to spinning.
Thursday, May 16 Cuban Dulceria International Bakery is hosting their 4th Annual Cuban Nostalgia event Thursday through Saturday. The three day event is for those "who remember the island's glamorous times and those who never experienced them" and will highlight the bakery's family recipes and some hard to find products. The party is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
Friday, May 17 Patriot PAWS is a group that provides service dogs to disabled veterans. This Friday they are hosting the 2nd Annual Grand Hall Summer Grill Out, which pits military veterans (who are now enrolled in the culinary school at the Art Institute of Dallas) in a Top Chef-style cook-off. All you'll need to do is show up from noon to 2 p.m. at 3838 West Miller Road in Garland and try the fare. Then, maybe buy a new grill from Barbecues Galore and all of the proceeds will go Patriot PAWS.
