Dean Fearing loves a good party and, seeing as such, is hosting four of them for the upcoming five-year anniversary of his namesake restaurant, Fearing's.
The first party is at 6:30 p.m. August 19 at his place in the Ritz Carlton on McKinney, and is certainly something you may want to consider. For $55 it includes dinner, drinks and entertainment from Dean himself.
His special guest that night is Chris Lilly, renowned pit master who learned the trade at Big Bob Gibson's Bar-B-Q in Decatur, Alabama. His mentor was Big Bob himself. Lilly has written cookbooks and is basically the world champion of barbecue competitions.
Chef Fearing and Lilly created the menu, which includes lobster nachos, bacon wrapped quail and corn on the cob, elotes style. From the pit: char-grilled oyster, barbecued chicken with Alabama white barbecue sauce, and "Eight-Time World Champion" pulled pork sliders with spicy mustard coleslaw.
Deep Ellum Brewing Company will supply the kegs.
"Yum" sums it all up.
There are several other parties, which you can check out here.
