Looking for a weekend blend of food, music and family fun? Take DART to Taste Addison, a food lover’s nirvana that is happening May 13-15. The event features 60 Addison-area restaurants tempting festival goers with flavorful cuisine, celebrity chef demonstrations, wine tasting seminars and more.
Things really get cooking with funky art and jewelry, children’s entertainment and even a mini-amusement park with carnival rides and midway games. It’s a three-day smorgasbord of springtime entertainment. Along with a cornucopia of gourmet delights, Taste Addison serves up a heaping helping of top-flight musical acts; country hit makers The Band Perry take the stage Saturday night.
Come hungry and leave the cooking to Addison’s top chefs, and leave the driving to DART. Addison Circle Park is directly adjacent to the Addison Transit Center, a busy hub served by a baker’s dozen of bus routes – 36, 183, 205, 333, 347, 350, 361, 362, 463, 534 and 536 – plus Route 488, which serves Farmers Branch Station; and Route 400, which serves that and also Downtown Carrollton Station, both on the Green Line. Ridesharing services such as Uber and Lyft are also only an app-tap away from either of those stations.
