When we first announced that Omar Flores was going to take on Matt McCallister at this year's Dallas Observer Iron Fork event, the event was already shaping up to be a great one. El Come Taco had signed on as a participant for the first time, and some of my old favorites, including Cuban Dulceria International Bakery and Scardello, were returning for another round, too.
It's only been a few weeks, several more restaurants have piled on, and tickets are available at a discount for the next few days, so here it is: Your Iron Fork reminder.

There's no point in cherry picking restaurants, so jump to the end of this post to see the full list. But before you start laying out your strategy for hitting up your favorites you should also note that discount tickets are only available until April 24, a date that will sneak up on you more quickly than tax day.
There's plenty of additional info at the Iron Fork event site if you're the type that needs to plan, but before you waste too much time, use the code ATE at TicketFly to get 25 percent off general admission tickets.
