Come Party Hardy With Us at Our Annual Best of Big D Bash

There are so many things to eat.

D Magazine throws a party every year in honor of the best things Dallas has to offer. It’s fun. There’s a lot to eat and a lot to drink. You can read more about it here.

The party is taking place this Thursday, July 25 (7 p.m. for GA and 6 p.m. for VIP) and tickets start at $65.

I’m here today to tell you about the food portion of the event. Which, in my opinion, is the best part of the event. But I’m biased. Your ticket grants you access to unlimited food. (Until it runs out, of course.) And drinks. (These will not run out.)

Here’s a list of some of the things that you can munch on this Thursday.

Empire Baking Company: ham on baguette sandwiches and raspberry rugelach.

Pecan Lodge: oak-smoked beef ribs and cornbread salad.

Knife: Ozersky sliders with 44 Farms beef, American cheese, and red onions.
