Meet the Food Truck Capital of Dallas

Downtown is being invaded. The intruders: over eight food trucks (including 3 Men and a Taco, the Butcher’s Son, Jack’s Chowhound), which will be dropping by every Saturday in One Arts Plaza. It is food truck weather, after all.

Ziplining in the Convention Center
ZIPPY

Ziplining in the Convention Center

You deserve an adventurous vacation. Some kayaking. A little ziplining. Your destination: the Dallas Convention Center. Here, the travel industry is taking over the place with a 16,000-gallon scuba tank for kayaking and a zipline above the showroom floor. We hear it’s how Sly trained for Cliffhanger.

Sunday
Riding Bikes, Wearing Tweed
TWEEDY

Riding Bikes, Wearing Tweed

It’s time to dust off your newsboy cap and shine your elbow patches. The annual Dallas Tweed Ride is upon us. You’ll cruise from the Grassy Knoll to the Turner House in Bishop Arts, where you’ll play bocce and sip libations. No, they won’t be served in tweed cups.

Nov 13, 1:30-4pm, no cost, starts at the Grassy Knoll, 411 Elm St, 214-946-1670

A Chili-Fueled Battle Royale
CHILLIN’

A Chili-Fueled Battle Royale

It’s Week 10 of the NFL season, but you’re tailgating at playoff levels. Your next move: heading to Bishop Arts and putting your secret chili recipe up against those from the chefs at Tillman’s and Eno’s. Bring two quarts of your concoction, and your game face.

Nov 13, 2-4pm, no cost, N Bishop Ave at W Davis St, sign up for the chili cook-off here
