Eat amazing food and give back at the Second Annual Chefs and Seeds While a little pricier than many events, Chefs for Seeds is an incredible opportunity to sample fare from some of the top chefs in the city. Better than amazing food, though, is that all proceeds from the event go to Seeds of Africa, an organization whose mission is to educate and nurture children and their families by providing quality education and community development programs in Adama, Ethiopia.

The best type of business is Whiskey Business Here’s what you’ll get for your ticket: a complimentary drink when you walk in the door, participation in a whiskey tasting, hors d’oeuvres and dessert prepared by Richard Triptow of the Dallas Fish Market. Remember though, white button ups and tighty whities are highly discouraged... like they will kick you out.

Not just for breakfast: Pancakes and Booze Art Show There’s a lot of people in the world who wouldn’t necessarily associate themselves with being an artist, or even enjoying art. However, there’s a MUCH smaller sect of people who don’t like pancakes or booze, so whether you’re a burgeoning artist or you just like to eat and drink (‘Merica!), this show will certainly not disappoint. There will be pancakes, and free one’s at that, live music, 50+ artists doing their thing, body painting, and, of course, alcohol. It’s an event like no other, and you have to experience for yourself.

Unleash your inner need to hurl stuff at the Dallas Tomato Battle This is hands-down one of the most unique events that happens in Dallas. Imagine a day of casually drinking and then all of a sudden the bell tolls and the fields turn red with... tomato juice! There are literal tons, in fact, 20 tons to be exact, of tomatoes that you get to chuck at friends and strangers alike. Now, before you go hugging a tree, getting upset about all the tomatoes that will be hurt that day, all of these tomatoes have been marked to be disposed of and after the event they are cleaned up and turned into fertilizer.

Try not to be a fatty at Thanksgiving While the term “fun run” is an oxymoron to most, a lot of people enjoy jogging, or “yogging” -- it’s a soft “J”. Also, if you’re going to run, it might as well be before you stuff your face with the most food you will probably eat all year, not for health reasons, but really so you can eat more. If you run enough, you will maybe be able to get thirds instead of seconds this year!

Decide you want to learn guitar after seeing Monte Montgomery @ The Kessler Apparently November is the unofficial guitar virtuoso month for Dallas, as if Tommy Emmanuel weren't enough, you can also feast your ears on Monte Montgomery, who has been featured as one of the top 50 guitarists of all time. You almost have to see Montgomery to believe the sounds he’s making are coming from just him and his guitar.
