Many years ago, I was a board member on an organization dedicated to reinvigorating the Dallas Arts District. We had a vision of people walking through the district embracing what Dallas had to offer culturally with a bevy of food and wine framing the experience. Fast forward about eight years to Savor Dallas’ Arts District Stroll, which kicked off Savor’s four day wine and food event.
We started at the Meyerson Symphony Center then moved to the Nasher Sculpture Center with a final stop at the Crow Collection of Asian Art. This was a packed event hosted in the nation’s largest contiguous urban arts district, and I loved the diversity of the totally packed house. It took the “wine is for white tablecloth venues” to task and I loved it. Granted, if you wanted to truly taste and chat with the wine makers and restaurants, you probably want to look at the other events scheduled on Friday and Saturday, but Savor Dallas made me smile with the culture, wine, food and general experience with 40 plus winemakers offering wares, a variety of spirits and some restaurants offering great food.
