Also there's the Fall Gallery Night on Saturday evening...put on by the Ft Worth Art Dealers Association. My husband, Chris, was actually a featured artist @ the Gallery 414 in 1998. That was such a fun night! He even got his picture in the Ft Worth Star Telegram w/ his creation...a muffler boy walking his dog. That's him & his art on the bottom. He created it out of old mufflers & car parts...recycling at it's finest!
The "muffler boy" (he was never given any other name...we should have @ least called him George or something!) resided on our front lawn for many years but then we moved. He just didn't look right in front of the newer, 2 story home we have now so Chris moved him to the shop.
But for us, this year, the big event is the ZestFest 09. We go every year. What's the ZestFest, you ask?
"ZestFest 2009 is the ultimate party for bold and flavorful food enthusiasts. Hosted by Chile Pepper Magazine in Fort Worth, Texas ZestFest will be action-packed. Cooking demos by celebrity chefs, live music, interactive contests and thousands of bold food samples will make September 11-13, 2009 the zestiest weekend of the year!"
I sent them an email w/ a link to my blog & asked for press passes so that I could get a "behind the scenes" perspective & they said yes! I hope to do an interview w/ one of the celebrity chefs....wouldn't that be too cool? I'll take lots of pictures & sample lots of products (I'll get hubby to try the really, really hot suff! LOL) & feature it in a future Foodie Friday post. I'm so excited ...can you tell? ;o) The ZestFest is also Fri thru Sunday.
I hope y'alls weekend is as fun-packed as mine will be. Have a good one!
