Reata Monthly Newsletter: April 2009

Main Street

The MAIN ST. Fort Worth Arts Festival (MAIN ST.), Fort Worth's most honored event, celebrates its 24th year on April 16 - 19, 2009. MAIN ST., presented by Coors Light and produced by Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives, Inc., hosts tens of thousands of people annually during the four-day visual arts, entertainment and cultural event. It showcases a nationally recognized fine art and fine craft juried art fair, live concerts, performance artists and street performers on the streets of downtown Fort Worth, stretching nine blocks on Main Street from the Tarrant County Courthouse to the Fort Worth Convention Center.

Join Reata in the Chisholm Trail lot in Sundance Square. For the ninth straight year, we will be selling our famous Tenderloin Tamales, Soft Chicken Tacos, Dutch Oven Apple Crisp, and Cowboy Iced Tea for your dining pleasure as you enjoy all of the wonderful activities of the Main St. Arts Festival.

Star Gazing Party

West of the Pecos the night skies have long been an iconic element of the landscape, a tradition that dates back centuries to the days of the dreaded Comanche Moon. More recently, the nighttime vistas have been the subject of endless scrutiny by astronomers just 17 miles north of Fort Davis at the world renowned University of Texas McDonald Observatory atop 6,800-foot Mount Locke. So plan a weekend trip to Alpine and the Davis Mountains to enjoy the night skies and dine at the original Reata.
