I went to the Grand Taste last year, and it was everything I had ever dreamed of, full of delicious food and world-class wine tastings. What more could you ask for than 4 hours of unlimited culinary and beverage tasting, in Dallas's most iconic park? This is high on my list for the best events of October, and a fantastic way to sample iconic dishes from Dallas' best restaurants. Check out the slideshow above for scenes from last year's Park & Palate.
