Erica Hight has paired each course with a varietal specifically selected to compliment the flavors and subtleties of each dish. Dinner will be served at a traditional Italian community table, with drawings for bottles of wine at the end of the evening.

 Untapped Fort Worth

At its origin, Untapped was designed by its organizers as an event equally focused on quality music and beer, a balance uncommon at music festivals and rarely found at beer events. The aim is not about the quantity of selection but rather the curating of the best in both craft beer and emerging local and national bands. A few of our favorite things so to speak. The addition of local artisans, quality food vendors, and unique locations add texture to each event and create a vibrant village of activity. What started as a self-serving shindig designed to showcase our personal interests turned out to be something that resonates in a way that is meaningful to us and our supporters. At Panther Island Pavilion. http://untapped-festival.com/ftw/

Come join us for the 1st Annual TRWD Spring Trash Bash! The community has come to love the Trinity Trash bash in September so we have decided to provide a cleanup in the spring as well. Groups, families and individuals can choose any of the locations listed in the registration form as a cleanup location. On the day of the event volunteers hit the trails and make our river and city beautiful one piece of trash at a time. After the morning cleanup, all volunteers are invited to the after party at Panther Island Pavilion with free food, door prizes and entertainment. http://trashbashfw.com/
