Legendary Soiree in The City of Cowboys & Culture
The Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau and many of the areas finest event companies came together to throw a LEGENDARY Block Party this past weekend in the Fort Worth Water Gardens. This event featuring the brilliant AirStar Dome, was the party of the century, and just one of many fabulous soirees celebrating Fort Worth and the new Omni Hotel.
The block party, was a true labour of love for the city of Cowboys and Culture and featured a brain trust of talented event companies from Fort Worth (and Dallas) including PeaPod Productions and the Chic Geek, Eclipse Entertainment, AirStar America, PRA, Shag Carpet, Lite Dallas, LiveWire Special Events, Trinity Food & Beverage,Freeman, J&S Audio Visual
who worked together in perfect harmony with the Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau, the Omni Hotel Fort Worth, & the Fort Worth Convention Center to create one of the most amazing weekends that Fort Worth has ever seen.
The festivities were centered around the Grand Opening of the Omni Fort Worth, which had a soft open in January of this year AND the branding of Fort Worth as the City of Cowboys and Culture.
The thought was to team the events together to create an entire weekend of Special Events, Tours and Parties
that showcased the new Omni hotel, Fort Worth, and an amazing array of event professionals for over 400 meeting, convention & event planners from around the world.
Some of the creme de la creme restaurants in Fort Worth were featured at the block party, with creative and yummy specialties including immaculate Chorizo Tacos from
my new favorite restaurant Grace to delectable Braised Short Ribs and Grits from Mercury Chop House...
to to fall off the bone Ribs from world famous "Iron Chef" competitor and Fort Worth's own celebrity chef Tim Love of Lonesome Dove Bistro
The cuisine was spectacular and the vendors gracious with the background and color on each new dish.
I am trying hard not to be giddy, but I am incredibly humbled to say that not only were all of the events a huge success - they were Legendary! Mayor Mike Moncrief was very gracious in his praise for the events and has been raving to all that Fort Worth is the place to be.
