Three Awesome Dallas Dining Events You Should Put on Your Calendar Now
Chris Lilly and Dean Fearing
As we wind up summer, let's work a few dinner parties into our busy days. Following are three upcoming events from several of Dallas' favorite chefs and brewers to consider.
Party at Fearing's Place Dean Fearing loves a good party, and he's throwing a little bash at his namesake restaurant, Fearing's at the Ritz Carlton, on August 18 at 6:30 p.m. along with his friend and barbecue legend Chris Lilly of Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q, who has a special talent for pulled pork.
Additionally, Fearing's friends from Deep Ellum Brewing Co. will be there with new brewer Jeremy Hunt, who will suggest pairings with the menu. Expect a lot of the aforementioned pulled pork, beef short ribs and iron skillet mac and cheese. And expect Fearing to pluck at his guitar with that big smile on his face. Tickets are $75 per person and include some beer and a sangria. Call 214-922-4817 to reserve a spot.
Peticolas at The Grape You might want to go ahead and grab a spot for this one. On August 27 at 7 p.m., Michael Peticolas will load up pints of beer and head over to The Grape to host a dinner prepared by chef de cuisine Danyele McPherson. Dinner is $55 per person and each dish will be paired with the lovely brews of Peticolas.
