This Week in Gluttony
Pecan Lodge at Wine Poste tops best food and drink events in Dallas
Yes, we all had loads of fun celebrating St. Patrick's Day, but one thing is for sure: No one is sad to see the corned beef and cabbage go.
Thankfully, this week is filled with much tastier morsels. Savor Dallas returns for the 10th year, barbecue favorite Pecan Lodge gets matched up with Malbecs, and Canary chef-owner Mansour Gorgi celebrates 11 years with a cooking class and book signing.
Here we go:
