The Food Fest is on November 13, from 12-5 pm at Revolving Kitchen, 520 Shepherd Dr. in Garland, and it has three pretty good things going for it: #1 it's a family-friendly event #2 it has free admission and #3 free parking.

So you can expect a diverse menu with options such as smoked brisket sandwiches, seasoned rice pilaf, rigatoni in carbonara sauce, Creole chicken salad sandwiches, chopped beef tacos, gluten free brownies and cookies, gumbo and jambalaya, street tacos, and CBD edibles like pineapple banana pecans. (While admission is free, the food is not.)
There'll be a hot chocolate bar station, and a hot dog eating contest sponsored by Samson's Gourmet Hot Dogs, at 2:30 pm. You're encouraged to sign up and join the contest, hope you like hot dogs.
