Save the Date: The Great Texas Food Truck Rally is Coming!

Mark your calendars now for the second annual Great Texas Food Truck Rally, benefiting Executives in Action and sponsored by yours truly – The Nodding Donkey!

 Here’s everything you need to know!

 When: Saturday, September 19 from 4pm to 10pm.

Where: The Reunion Tower lawn in downtown Dallas! Last year’s event was such a huge success that we needed to seek out a bigger venue for the action in 2015. Not only is the lawn at Reunion Tower large enough to accommodate more people and more food trucks, but it also offers incredible views of the city!

What: A full afternoon and evening of fun, food, and music! Food trucks of every cuisine imaginable will flank the lawn, so there will be a little something for everyone’s tastes. Desserts, barbeque, Asian, tacos – you name it, we’ll have it all!

The Nodding Donkey – the best sports bar in Dallas - is proud to partner with Budweiser as the title sponsor for the beer garden. The beer garden will be a centralized hub at the event, so come on by and see us! We’ll be serving up your old time favorites and a few new craft beers as well.

And of course, great bands will be playing live music all night long! The full line up has yet to be released, but stay tuned for more as we get closer to the event.

 A little about Executives in Action: Executives in Action is a non-profit that works with a broad range of charities. It places private sector executives in positions where they can use their skills to help smaller non-profits succeed. We’re proud to help support such a great cause!

Stay tuned for more from The Nodding Donkey Greenville Ave. about this amazing event! But remember – Sept. 19 at Reunion Tower lawn! You won’t want to miss it!

Craft Brews to Try at The Nodding Donkey!

Spring has sprung. March Madness is in full swing. The weather is uh-mazing. It’s time to get to The Nodding Donkey Greenville Ave. this week to enjoy great food, drinks, and basketball!

When you come into D Magazine’s Readers’ Choice for Best Sports Bar in Dallas, you’ll instantly see that we’ve got a plethora of amazing craft beers, right on tap. Whether you want an old favorite, or are looking for something new, there is something for everyone. Here are a few to try:

·      Texas Ale Project – Fire Ant Funeral: A local Dallas brewery, Texas Ale Project is the first brewery in Texas to start from the ground up since the late 1800s. T.A.P. as it is commonly called, combines the art of brewing with the highest quality ingredients to incite the best possible flavor. Fire Ant Funeral was one of the first brews to come out of this local Dallas, Texas Brewery – and one of the best so far! An all American Amber Ale, Fire Ant Funeral combines 7 different malts that create a rich, full-bodied ale.

·      Community Beer Company – Mosaic IPA: Mosaic put Community Beer Company on the map with the development of this full-bodied, yet not overpowering India Pale Ale. The name – Mosaic – comes from the use of a new hop called Mosaic, giving it a raw, hoppy flavor that is surprisingly well balanced. Community Beer is brewed right here in Downtown Dallas.

·      Peticolas Brewing Company – Velvet Hammer: Velvet Hammer is a favorite here at The Nodding Donkey because of its malty sweetness, balanced bite, and floral undertones. It’s complex and unique, with a dark – almost ruby – color. Everything a good Imperial Red Ale should be! Located right here in Dallas, Peticolas is consistently recognized as one of the best breweries in Dallas.
