As if the gorgeous autumn weather isnâ€™t excuse enough to cruise the Hill Country ... the 20th annual Fredericksburg Food & Wine Festival takes place this Saturday on the townâ€™s Marktplatz (on the 100 block of West Main St.). Some 50 food and arts vendors and more than 20 Texas wineriesâ€”including Val Verde Winery, Fall Creek Vineyard, and Messina Hofâ€”will be on hand, along with the sweet sounds of Texas musicians like Jeff Lofton. So listen, sip, and sample to your heartâ€™s content!
Texas Highways staffers will be there, too, sharing copies of the magazine and selling some of our favorite TH products. And our own Lois Rodriguez will present her delectable Tres Leches Cake in a Grape Expectations Cooking School session at 1:15. Warning: Side effects of the spongy-creamy concoction may include prolonged euphoria. Delicioso!
