Talk about a great way to make the food, wine and fun taste a little bit better during the Savor Dallas weekend (March 30-31) . This year, all the tasting seminars at the 8th annual festival will benefit area non-profits that devote their time and attention to educating us and those who serve their cause about the joys and benefits of food and wine. Here’s the rundown for Saturday March 31st at Savor Dallas:

Get details on all these great events here. We’ve tried to time them, so that you could attend all three.
That’s just a taste of what’s happening during the Savor Dallas weekend.
Enjoy a great new event on Friday night March 30th:
It promises to be a fantastic evening of gourmet entertainment from 8 til midnight (right after the Arts District Wine Stroll). Great sips include Stella Artois and Martinis from Ultimat Vodka (more to be announced). We’re lining up some great bites, too, from Bishop Arts chefs and artisans, and Artizone.com will be on hand with some of its great suppliers for you to sample. You’ll also get to try the world’s greatest vinaigrette from Garlic Expressions. (Mom would like that we’re serving a side salad!). And, talk about great sounds! Recording artist Carrie Rodriguez from Austin is in concert beginning at 9:30.
Savor Dallas welcomes Kroger as Presenting Sponsor for 2012! Soon, you’ll be hearing about numerous complimentary in-store wine and beer tastings featuring many of the “Great Brands of Savor Dallas” at Kroger locations throughout North Texas. Kroger will be bringing Nolan Ryan Beef, Murray’s Cheeses, and Boar’s Head deli meats to the International Grand Tasting for some delicious sampling.
FIJI Water returns as the official Savor Dallas water in 2012! Clear, cool, delicious FIJI will be featured at all Savor Dallas events throughout the weekend. It’s refreshing, and a great palate cleanser!
Big fun. Big flavor. Bring your friends to Savor Dallas! It’s the most delicious food and wine festival in Texas.
