It’s that time of year when John Tesar (Knife, Spoon) gathers his chef buddies for a cause. Burgers & Burgundy is a fun event filled with, well, both burgers and plenty of wine.
Funds raised from the event will go towards DIFFA/Dallas’s mission of serving those who are affected by AIDS and HIV across North Texas.
