Photo gallery: Bastille on Bishop in Bishop Arts District (July 14)
More than 1,500 people attended!
OAK CLIFF About 1,500 people: That’s three times the amount of people that were expected visited the Bishop Arts district for its First Annual Bastille on Bishop Celebration. The street festival featured games for the whole family, a wine walk, music, a full Pétanque court with a few thousand pounds of sand, and the all-important mussels competition with more than nine well-known chefs from Dallas battling it out to for the title of Best Mussels.
The heat was somehow not a factor to the droves of people who attended, but yours truly had to retreat to Eno’s for a cold drink, where, like everything at the Bishop Arts District, was busy. The mussels competition was intense, with first place going to newcomer to Lucia’s, Chef David Uygur. Second and third place went to Decanter and Zen Sushi, respectively. It was a great night on Bishop Street and a great turnout for the First Annual Bastille on Bishop.
