Lone Star Bash ft. the Texas Restaurant Awards
July 10, 2021 | Gilley's | Dallas, TX
Each year, the Texas Restaurant Association puts on an event we call Lone Star Bash, in conjunction with TRA Marketplace. This event is a perfect opportunity to celebrate our industry, try delicious food from well-renowned chefs, and raise funds for the Texas Restaurant Foundation. We like to say it's where the industry parties. Celebrating its seventh year in the summer of 2022, get ready to indulge your foodie passion with us in Dallas. The most talked about chefs from around the state are teaming up with the Texas Restaurant Foundation to celebrate and support the future of the restaurant industry.
Attendees will enjoy chef-prepared tasting bites, live music, as well as beer, wine and signature cocktails. Some of our past chefs have been from restaurants like Outback Steakhouse, Taco y Vino, Antone's PoBoys, Gringos, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., McCormick and Schmick's, Blue Top Brand, and Molina's Cantina. Join us in San Antonio in 2021 to get a taste of Texas flavor. There will be Instagram-worthy moments around every corner. You won’t want to miss this event! Tickets are on sale soon!
