Discover Dallas provides fun, informative bus tours led by local guides who highlight the city's main attractions. City explorers have the option of starting their experience at 2:30 p.m. with a helping of hot apple cider at Patrizio Restaurant in historical Highland Park Village. During the excursion, which runs from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., guests can busy their eyes with the spectacular Christmas lights and seasonal décor of Highland Park, Uptown, the West End, and downtown, where a 30-minute stop lets riders disembark to explore the Arts District. As the trip progresses, the onboard holiday tunes sing good tidings to your ears as cookies enchant your stomach with visions of even more cookies.
Voted one of Guidespot's Best Dallas Wine Bars, Chateau Wine Market & Bodega Bar employs discerning palates to collect a multitudinous variety of quality libations from around the world. At each monthly tasting, Chateau opens up to 20 different wines from their vast selection, selecting bottles that retail from $20 to more than $150. Each fair takes place during a late-month Saturday afternoon from 2 p.m.–6 p.m., and the wine-curious are free to come and go as they please, fitting a tasting in between errands or saving the world from spandexed supervillians.
The culinary ideology behind MAX's Wine Dive lies in a simple slogan: "Why the hell not?" With the gourmand irreverence to unite fried chicken with champagne, chili dogs with an Australian shiraz, and grilled cheese with a French sauvignon blanc, Executive Chef Patrick Russell's menu of eclectic dishes has earned MAX's Dallas location several OpenTable Diner Choice awards, including Hot Spot and Notable Wine List.
Though the cuisine evokes the flavors of a rustic diner, the ingredients are all gourmet—chefs spangle dishes with fresh seasonal produce, piquant cheeses, and unique sauces such as chipotle aioli and housemade crème fraiche. Meanwhile, an extensive inventory of world wines pours regularly, sending selections to tables by the glass even when the menu lists a varietal as bottle-only, thanks to the restaurant's two-glass commitment policy. Friday through Sunday, brunch bravely blends chicken fried steak and waffles, and the signature MAX 'n cheese puts a twist on an original in a more critic-friendly manner than editing a high-speed chase into Casablanca. Housing a private event space, MAX's Wine Dive can accommodate large groups of nearly 60 people.

Food Tours of America's staffers also incorporate tours into private events, such as birthday parties and birthday-party reenactments.
