If there's one thing we hear when talking to local restaurateurs, it's this: Dallas loves brunch.
To celebrate that, we're all going to sip brunch cocktails and try the best brunch foods our city has to offer at the Dallas Observer's annual Morning After on Saturday, Feb. 8.
This is the fourth year for the event, where you'll sample drinks and foods from the hottest brunch spots in town while listening to live music. Get your tickets now for all the chicken, waffles, pancakes, etc., that you want to enjoy.
General admission ($45) gets you in for unlimited brunch samples from all the restaurants and chefs coming, along with brunch cocktail samples and three drink tickets to use at bars at the event. You can purchase more drink tickets at the event, too.
VIP ($70) gets you in 30 minutes early, at 11 a.m., when you can get all the same samples with shorter lines. You'll also get six drink tickets to use at the bars.
Also, we have that list of participating restaurants (so far):
Barley & Board
Blends Daiquiri Lounge
Blue Mesa Grill
Del Sur Tacos
Eddie V's Prime Seafood
House of Blues
Revolver Taco Lounge
Sanchos by Taco Heads
Sundown at Granada
The Empanada Cookhouse
Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse
Yummy Pizza Food Truck
Important boozy information:
Deep Ellum Brewing
Deep Ellum Distillery
Hill Country Distillers
*There will be a build-your-own bloody mary bar with Ozona Bar & Grill fixings as well as a bubbly bar*
A portion of the proceeds benefits the North Texas Food Bank, so you can feel even better about having multiple servings of gravy that day.
All guests must be at least 21 years old. Do not forget your ID: You'll need it to enter.
The Morning After, 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 8, at the Dallas Farmers Market, 920 S. Harwood St.
