Be lucky enough to know about the event, and sometimes we give the hosts of the events a special shout out on craveDFW. The dinners are almost always BYOB which gives the diners control over their pairings. The chef often reveals the menu in advance and also suggests wines.  This can be extremely interesting.

DAT is the undisputed king of the underground and has many of these special events at various spots around the city.
