Big Taste of Fort Worth for Big Brothers

Big Brothers & Big Sisters is the beneficiary of the upcoming, 30th Annual Big Taste of Forth Worth event and competition. Date: April 26 at the Hilton, downtown.

Local restaurants submit dishes to be tasted, you get to try them all, and a panel of judges picks the winners in category. You get great food, wine, a Grey Goose martini bar, dancing, and the knowledge that you are supporting one of the good guys in the world of non-profits, that is, the Big Brothers organization. What a deal.

Go. It's a good cause and is a lot of fun.

If you can't swing the $85 ($150 for 2), maybe your company will sponsor you, give to the cause, and let you enjoy the festivities. Here is an excerpt from their press release and then a link to the event website.
"The 30th Annual Big Taste of Fort Worth promises foodies a culinary experience well worth the price of admission. With the newest hot spots backed by some of the biggest names joining this tasting event’s restaurant roster, attendees can count on a fierce battle for “Best of Fort Worth” bragging rights. Fort Worth newcomers such as Buttons, Grace and Eddie V’s are joining the lineup of the city’s finest dining establishments such as Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, Reata and Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse for the event on Sunday, April 26, at the Hilton Fort Worth Hotel at 815 Main Street in Fort Worth.
