Nearly 2,000 people gathered at the Bomb Factory on July 25 to share in the food, drinks, and culture that helped define our city over the past 12 months. Attendees had the opportunity to sip and savor bites from Uchi, Pappas’ Bros., Las Almas Rotas, Bullion, Sixty Vines, Jalisco Norte, The French Room, and many more. Plus local Dallas artists Bobby Sessions, Medicine Man Revival, Sudie, Abraham Alexander, and 11-year-old DJ Vex and his mentor DJ Souljah performed throughout the night. Thank you to our sponsors that made it all possible: Deep Ellum Brewing Co., Effen Vodka,El Tesoro, Hornitos Tequila, Tres Generaciones, Maker’s Mark, See’s Candies, and the Bomb Factory and Canton Hall.
