LOWEST GREENVILLE—The latest local figure to inspire an ice cream sundae at Remedy is none other than chef Brian C. Luscher of The Grape and his eponymous hot dog spot. The "Brian Corn Luscher" is made with sweet corn ice cream, port-soaked blackberries, cajeta, cornmeal shortbread cookies, and whipped cream and will run you $9. [EaterWire]

DESIGN DISTRICT—The biggest and best food festival of the year, Chefs for Farmers, doesn't go down till late October — but tickets are now on sale, and to celebrate CFF is throwing a "Mix Off" on August 16. Eight bartenders will duke it out to create the best summer punch, and four sous chefs will compete to prepare street food from a farm-to-table angle. For more details, including a list of participating chefs and bartenders, go here; tickets are $55. [EaterWire]

ARTS DISTRICT—If you couldn't make it to NYC for Proof + Pantry's James Beard House dinner, fret not; they're recreating it here at home on Thursday, August 20. It's $90 per person (plus an optional $40 for wine pairings) and the menu includes dishes such as a snow crab salad, foie gras terrine, and a whole-roasted tomahawk ribeye. Call (214) 880-9940 to reserve. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN—Chipotle knows you cannot survive on burritos alone, so they'll be at the Dallas Farmers Market this Saturday morning handing out $5 vouchers that are redeemable for any produce or artisan foods at the market (hello, Roomies Ice Cream). Be one of the first 500 people between 8 a.m. and noon to snag one. [EaterWire]
