There are few bigger buzzkills than a bawling baby in a bar.
And it's with that notion in mind that the inaugural Fort Worth Food & Wine Festival kicks off with a zero tolerance 21-and-over admission policy at all events.
But this weekend is about far more than bouncers banning bouncing babies. It's all about celebrating North Texas chefs in a series of indulgent experiences.
Highlights include a kickoff event at Billy Bob's Texas with 12 local celebrity chefs; 26 craft beers and sliders at Burgers, Brews & Blues; and the Grand Tasting with more than 70 wineries, breweries, and distilleries pairing sips with delectable bites.
For full culinary immersion, purchase a package that includes each of the above events and gain access to an exclusive day of Museums & Mimosas for package ticket holders only.
In between all that, Tastes of the World takes you to the stage of the Bass Performance Hall where Chefs Stephan Pyles and Jon Bonnell take you on a gastronomic trip around the globe where each course is paired with a rare wine and performances from The Fort Worth Opera and The Texas Ballet Theater.
Kind of like an adult version of Chuck E. Cheese's.
Without the robot rodents. Or those screaming school kids.
