The Margarita and Salsa Festival announced its entertainment lineup this morning. Kevin Fowler will be headlining the annual party with supporting acts the Casey Donahew Band and Whiskey Myers.
The 18th installment of the Margarita and Salsa Festival will be held August 24 at the Extraco Events Center. So if you dig Mexican food, margaritas and Texas country music (who doesn't, right?) then mark your calendar.
Cafe Homestead is rolling out its special dinner again on June 1 and this one is officially a farm-to-table event.
The restaurant began this series calling it "farm to table dinner" and then moved away from that distinction when the menu didn't precisely fit. But this one is going to be a spring harvest farm-to-table dinner. There will be one seating at 6:30 p.m. and the cost is $49 per person.
Attention Waco photographers, WacoFork is looking for some quality photos of iconic Waco locations, landmarks, buildings, murals (Wacotown), restaurants, etc., and we need your help. We put out the call last week via Facebook and Twitter, and we've already received some excellent shots from our friend, Brett (see the photo on this blog post). We could still use more great photos, so please help us out.
After opening its first Waco store in the Westview Village Shopping Center in November, WiseGuys is now looking to expand its turf.
Co-owner and operator Bill Nychay emailed us to tell us the Chicago-style sandwich joint is looking around downtown to open a second store. WiseGuys clearly wants to get closer to the Baylor crowd and maybe in on the new-stadium hype.
A few weeks ago, we were asked on Facebook what was going in the new building next to Taco Cabana. We quickly found out that two restaurant and/or retail spaces were available but couldn't get a name.
Now we have one. Papa John's is expanding its Waco operations into this location, according to Kenny Stevens from The Reid Company. Obviously, this will be convenient for some, especially Baylor students who live on campus or in near-campus apartments. But it's also not the most exciting thing ever since we 1) already have this restaurant in town and 2) usually have Papa John's delivered, so as long as we're in delivery range, it probably doesn't matter too much if there's a new one. It's a good thing for Papa John's, though, as they will be able to cover more territory more efficiently.
It's time for Vitek's to properly celebrate the Gut Pak's victory in the recent CookingChannelTV.com College Eats Bracket Challenge.
In case you weren't aware, the Gut Pak outlasted 32 other food choices from college-town eateries around the country in March and early-April. So Vitek's is throwing a party from 4:30 p.m. to close on Thursday at their Speight Ave location.
Over the weekend, I saw a picture of one of the Dichotomy crew taking a sledgehammer to a wall, which I took as a sure sign that the progress of our new coffee bar has shifted gears in its progress toward becoming a reality.
Sure enough, co-proprietor Brett Jameson confirmed that construction has begun on the inside and outside of the building. They're hoping to be open by September. Just a heads up, in case you didn't already know, you can currently find Dichotomy's coffee offerings at their location inside the Croft Art Gallery or at the Waco Downtown Farmers Market.
I just stopped off at Vitek's to check on their fundraiser for West and found they still have plenty of T-shirts available. They're $10 and say "#PrayForWest" and they're also available at George's and George's in Hewitt.
That's an easy way to give a little help to our neighbors.
About a week ago, the Waco Tribune-Herald reported Rusty Taco will be going into the new shopping center anchored by Aldi on Valley Mills Drive. They quoted the shopping center owner and about the same time we received an email from David Weaver from Rusty Taco confirming that the Texas-based taco chain had signed a lease.
On Monday, I was in Fort Worth and, wanting to provide the freshest information to you, WacoFork friends, I drove over to Dallas to check out the Rusty Taco restaurant on Greenville Avenue. Pictured are a shrimp taco, a breakfast taco (they serve them all day) with chorizo, eggs and cheese, and a fried chicken taco.
