Drink Up Summer at Vickery Park; Tomato Fight at Samar

KNOX-HENDERSON—Vickery Park keeps it close to home this weekend by featuring local beers for Labor Day. Friday they'll tap their last keg of Brooklyn Summer Ale—a symbolic reminder that fall is almost here (as if the lack of triple-digit temps hadn't made you aware already). [City of Ate]

CITYWIDE—Dallas Bites will lead a bacon tour this Saturday, September 1 from 1-4:30p.m. Stops will include Central 214 for a taste of Chef Graham Dodds' house-made pancetta and Hypnotic Donuts for--oh, nevermind. You see where they're going with this. Tickets are $40 and can be obtained via Dallas by Chocolate. [Facebook/CraveDFW]

DOWNTOWN—Stephan Pyles' Samar will celebrate Spain's annual La Tomatina Festival (also known as the world's largest food fight) with a special three-course tomato-centric dinner on Wednesday, September 29. Diners can expect flamenco dancers and a live Spanish guitar soundtrack. Call Samar at 214-922-9922 to reserve (and resist the temptation to throw any of your own tomatoes). [Eaterwire]
