Iron Out Your French Dressing

Merci beaucoup. The 30th annual Beaujolais & Beyond Wine Festival is here, you little beret-wearing neckerchiefs. This year it’s at that incredible building in the middle of nowhere: The Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas. (You know the one — all angles and glass — spectacular, no? Hoh-hoh-hoh.) Hosted by the French American Chamber of Commerce, the theme is The Three Musketeers. “All for one, one for all!” Especially after an evening sipping French wines from Beaujolais, Bordeaux, Burgundy and many, many other regions as well as American wines from California, Washington and Texas. Tickets start at $65 and include a commemorative glass, unlimited wine and food tasting, live entertainment plus a silent auction with items like a weekend night stay for two at the W, a gift certificate from Boulevardier, a BMW for the weekend, adult passes to the zoo and more. The festival runs from 7 to 9:30 p.m. on Friday. Buy tickets and see the full lineup at
