The Dallas Travel & Adventure Show, happening this weekend (Nov. 2 and 3) at the Convention Center, has a culinary stage line-up that features Savor Dallas creator Jim White and Top Chef contestant Tre Wilcox. I believe they will be cooking up some tasty samples for y’all to try. Tickets are $15 at the door or $10 online with a promo code (DAPR) for a one-day admission. But let’s not talk money when you could probably win two tickets for free. Just fill out the form after the jump, because we’re giving away a pair of tickets to this weekend’s travel festivities. I’ll email the winner at noon on Thursday, October 31. Happy gloomy Tuesday.
