Shop, Wine and Dine This Weekend

by Steven Doyle

We have a few shout outs for the weekend and think you might enjoy a few of these.  There are a few things going on that you might enjoy.

First let us mention that we saw Miguel Vicéns and John Paul Valverde owners of Campo Modern Country Bistro  last night and they wanted to let everyone know they do indeed have a liquor license. There were just a few days in the beginning that they did not have one, but now you can enjoy the cocktail program designed by Brad Hensarling of Fort Worth’s The Usual at the new Oak Cliff restaurant.  

Saturday you can start your Christmas shopping by purchasing wares from local artisans at the Dallas Flea, the occasional market located in the Southside of Lamar at 1409 S. Lamar. Here you will find amazing clothing, jewelry, food and vintage wear all under one room and made by some super cool locals.  

Also on Saturday check out one of our favorite micro-bakers, Christine Carey who owns WeMe. She will be at the Grand Prairie Farmers Market Saturday 8am – 1pm. The market is decorated beautifully for the holidays, and she says the heaters are lit. Christine will have a variety of soups and other goodies for holiday enjoyment and entertaining, plus samples of everything. Now is the time to place orders for Poblano & Pecan Holiday Stuffing and Bread Pudding with Walnuts & Brandy Sauce. Each item feeds 10-12 people. $24 each.

Check out the Bishop Arts Saturday Market which is an Old World-style outdoor market in North Oak Cliff featuring food, vendors and entertainment. The area is flush with buildings from the 1920s filled with restaurants and boutiques oozing with nostalgic charm. This Saturday’s entertainers will be folk singer-acoustic guitarist Anna Procter at 9:30 a.m., the Oak Cliff String Band at noon and Ballet Folklorico Hispano de Dallas at 2 p.m.

Sunday you may continue your holiday shopping at Art is Art as they host their first ever trunk show featuring Jewel Rehab, Vintage Dreamz and Yomono. These designers are known for repurposing retro jewels, trinkets and fabrics into snazzy new treasures. Check out their website for more details.

There are plenty of holiday activities happening around Dallas and Fort Worth. In case you missed it, here is a link to some of the holiday programs going on around town. Go grab some holiday fun.
