Saturday is shaping up to be a Westside kinda day.
From 11am to 6pm, the three-mile stretch of Camp Bowie Boulevard between University Drive and Ridglea Avenue will be bustling as part of Camp Bowie District’s inaugural Fresh Off the Boulevard. Showcasing “what’s fresh” from Camp Bowie restaurants and retailers, the event will include vintage lemonade stands offering both kid-friendly refreshments and adult beverages, photo booths, food and wine tastings, art, live music, trunk shows, giveaways, games, and more. Blue Sushi, Studio 7, Winslow’s Wine Café, Miss Molly’s Toy and Candy Shop, Michael’s Restaurant, Doman XCIV, and Tokyo Café are just some of the dozens of participating businesses. A complimentary shuttle service will be provided.
An after-party at Buffalo West (7101 Camp Bowie West, 817-732-2370) will feature live music, complimentary wine and light bites, and a raffle.
