Bass Performance Hall
6 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.
Aficionados of the city’s exceptional food, drink and performing arts gather for an evening of exclusive elegance subtitled, “A Salute to Fort Worth’s Fine Arts.” The night begins with caviar and champagne in the beautiful opera hall’s Grand Lobby and then continues with sublime cuisine and extraordinary wines, enjoyed once guests are seated on the elaborately set stage of Bass Hall. The experience promises the ultimate in gastronomy paired with performance. Some of Fort Worth’s revered chefs collaborate for this rare occasion: Lanny Lancarte II, Jon Bonnell, Michael Thomson, Molly McCook, Blaine Staniford and Sarah Hooton present dishes not found elsewhere. The bonus: Each course is matched with a prized wine carefully chosen to complement the cuisine and its region of origin. The evening’s special bonus is the presentation of the Walter Kaufmann Lifetime Achievement Award, bestowed upon a distinguished and unparalleled leader in Fort Worth’s food-and-beverage community, the Lancarte Family.
