Beer fests, crawfish boils, and a foam run

Dallas Event of the Week
Do you like beer? Wine? FOOD?! Well, man of esoteric tastes, you're in luck, because the North Texas Beer and Wine Festival has all those things and more. Hit the Irving Convention Center on Saturday and you'll find 70-plus vendor tents, plenty of beer and wine tastings, live bands, chef demos, and "how-tos" for home brewing (in case you'd like to limit your exposure to big crowds in the future).

Friday, May 9th: You have not one, but two chances to see Bob Schneider in action at the Kessler this weekend, so you have no excuse not to go. Schneider will be playing a show at 7pm and a show at 10pm, so no matter what your bedtime is, prepare for some listening pleasure. Continue Reading

Friday, May 9th: Spend an evening with the head brewer from Deep Ellum, along with some of his beer. You will get to drink their original can line plus several of the new releases while hearing about the history of the brewery. Grab tickets here, they're going fast!

Saturday, May 10th: Like most people, you have undoubtedly wondered what running in a 3.1-mile bubble bath would be like. Finally, the wait is over, thanks to the Foam Party Run this Saturday. So lace up your (old, hopefully) shoes, grab a rubber ducky, and get ready to run.

Saturday, May 10th: Stuff your face with about 1,000 mudbugs while helping to build housing for DFW-area veterans. For a mere $25 you get beer, unlimited crawfish, potatoes, and corn at The Foundry, boasting one of the coolest outdoor spaces in Dallas. Tickets

All weekend: It's Mother's Day, which means you dropped the ball and forgot again. Not to worry, take Mom to Max's Wine Dive any day this weekend, enjoy a bottle of something nice with their tasty brunch, and then bring home a second bottle to-go for half price "because she deserves more wine". Feeling hungry? Asador has a Mother's Day brunch on Sunday that's full of goodies like crab Benedict and a striploin carving station.
