If you see a familiar chef on the list, how great! And just as great is seeing the newbies who will take full advantage of the night to tantalize your tastebuds for future ventures.
According to sources, even more of the culinary types are getting their stoves warmed up to join the festivities.
And naturally, thanks to the father-son Wine Guys Co-Chairs Greg Hext, Preston Hext, Matthew Meadows and Mike Meadows, the taste of grape will highlight the evening’s grazing, don’t you know!
If your tastebuds are hankering for all types of grazing with a touch of the vino, make sure that you’ve got your place locked down.
Warning: Give the black ties and stilettos the night off. This one is strictly a walk-about to sip-and-sup and check out everything from the Dallas Zoo residents, the raffle items and the live auction goodies.
