With three important things happening Saturday and the World Series in our own backyard, I’m breaking Night & Day protocol this week. Again. Here are some events for your consideration in the coming days.
Wednesday – Saturday, November 1-4, 2023
Hailing from Arlington, Texas (not Dallas, Ted Cruz — geez), the Texas Rangers are in the World Series. I thought I’d let you know in case you’ve lost WiFi under your rock. All World Series games are streaming on Fubo at 7:03pm CST, and there’s still time to sign up for a free trial or find your new favorite sports bar. Game 5 on Wednesday will be in Arizona, but there are tons of watch parties all around North Texas. Since our press day falls on Tuesdays and our crystal ball is in the repair shop, Game 4 results are not yet in. If the Rangers win Games 4 and 5, that’s it. Go, ’Gers! If they do not and Games 6 and possibly 7 become necessary, we’ll have the homefield advantage on Friday and Saturday. Now I’ve told you everything I know about this thing. Go, me!

From 5am (yes, you read that right) to 10:30pm Sat-Sun, Panther Island Pavilion (395 Purcey St, Fort Worth, 817-698-0700) hosts the North Texas Food Truck Challenge. Twenty of them will showcase signature dishes via 4-oz samples in the hopes of winning $10,000 in cash prizes, including a people’s choice award of $2,500. There is no general admission fee for the event, and sample vouchers will be available for purchase. After the awards, trucks will offer expanded menu items. As a kickoff to the event, a VIP pre-party will be held today featuring a drone show 200 feet in the air delivered by Guinness Book of World Records holders Sky Drone Elements. The drone show is free, and the VIP experience requires a ticket and includes food, beverage, and entertainment. For more info and pricing, visit NorthTexasFoodTruckChallenge.com.
Two winners from Best Of 2023 are joining forces. Drag With Me: The Show has moved venues. As of today, their new home is Halos Bar & Grill ft.
