The third annual Vickery Place Food & Wine Walk was a smashing success! Many thanks to the home-owners who allowed their porches to be overrun by almost 100 oenophiles! The Grape restaurant and the Blue Goose donated food for the event, and we also had food served from Sissy's Southern Kitchen, Jack's Southern Comfort Food, Fireside Pies, and Manny's famous taco stand. Once again, we sold out completely the week before the event. If you missed it this year, make sure you sign up for the email blasts so that you can be first in line next year.

The third annual Vickery Place Food & Wine Walk in support of the VPNA will take place on Saturday June 8th at 7pm, and will feature three stops at beautiful porches and front lawns on a walkable route through our neighborhood. This year we will have delicious selections of food provided by local restaurants, and perfectly paired with fine wines and Champagne. Tickets for the event may be purchased online for $40 each up to 24 hours before the event, and for $50 on the day of the event, which includes a 10oz laser-etched keepsake wine glass. There is also a VIP after-party featuring even more catered food, wine and music, for an additional $10 per person. We are looking for a few more volunteers to help with the event, who will also be awarded free access to the VIP event. Please contact us at winewalk@vickeryplace.org if you would like to volunteer at the event, or for donation or sponsorship offers.

Afghan cuisine has arrived within walking distance of our Vickery Place! Nora Restaurant and Bar is a new restaurant that has been open for a couple of months on Greenville Avenue in the (formerly notorious) section known as Lowest Greenville. This is the part of Greenville Avenue that saw substantial streetscape improvements last year. If Nora R&B is indicative of a new breed of nighttime business moving to that strip, we're excited!

Dallas – Sunday evening’s aerial spraying was a success, with four planes covering the remaining 226,000 acres needed to complete the first round of application in those areas of Dallas County participating. Tonight, five planes will apply a second round of insecticide, weather permitting, to the entire target area of 362,328 acres, hoping to cover every city participating in the aerial spraying mission.

Spraying will begin at 9 p.m. in the City of Dallas, earlier in other cities. Residents in all neighborhoods of Dallas should expect spraying to occur sometime between 9 p.m. and 1 a.m. According to Dr. Roger Nasci and Dr. Janet McAllister of the Centers for Disease Control, (CDC) a second application is recommended to kill the larvae that have hatched since the first spraying event. Until the results of tonight’s spraying mission are known, it is undetermined whether aerial spraying will occur Tuesday evening. CDC Representatives will be in North Texas this week, surveying and analyzing the region’s efforts to combat the West Nile Virus and will make recommendations on how to proceed. #westnilevirus #dallas

Information is now posted on the City’s Web site regarding West Nile Virus and Aerial Spraying.  There are several documents that can be shared with citizens to help educate them.  As soon as we have specific information on day/time of aerial spraying (and maps) we will update the special Web site with that information and continue to push out information.

The Third Annual Vickery Place Food & Wine Walk will take place on Saturday, June 8th at 7pm.

The location of the first house, and where you will collect your wine glasses and your VIP wristbands (if you purchased a VIP ticket) is at 5327 Goodwin Ave. (Please scroll down to the bottom of the linked post for a map).

The 2013 Wine Walk is completely sold out, so if you did not already purchase a ticket online, you are going to have to wait till the Fourth Annual Wine Walk in 2014! And next time make sure you reserve your spot earlier!

For the rest of you who bought tickets online, we have your name and we are expecting you. You do not need to bring a printout or a receipt or anything like that, we already have your name. If you look younger than 30, please bring your ID with you. We need to make sure that every person with a wine glass is over 21.

The 2nd Annual Vickery Place Wine Walk on June 2nd was once again a huge success! The progressive food and wine venue sold out in advance, drawing 100+ neighbors. The evening was filled with good food, great wine and friendly faces. 
We would like to thank the hosts who opened up their porches, yards and homes--Chris and Beth Jones, 5411 Miller Avenue; Huy & Julie Do, 5432 Miller Avenue; Henley and Wendy Quadling 5354 Vickery Boulevard; and Marty and Melanie Buckholt, 5419 Vickery Boulevard. Also, thanks to our volunteers who poured wine and served food and to Julie Do, our 2012 WW coordinator. The food was catered by Vickery Place resident Debbie Simurda and her business partner Pam Barron introducing their new catering business, Fresh Catering DFW.

We are thrilled at the turnout but at the same time saddened that we could not accommodate all neighbors who want to attend. We will hold other wine events in the future, so please watch for your Vickery Place News each month, check our web page, or follow us here.

Vickery Place Neighborhood Association
Introduction

Our neighborhood is located four (4) miles from Downtown Dallas, Texas. It is surrounded by Greenville Ave, Belmont, Henderson, Central (75) and Goodwin. We have approximately 1200 households, all of whom are kept informed by our monthly newsletter and meetings.

Vickery Place was founded in 1911 and is still a thriving community of Craftsman bungalows, Prairie style homes and old-growth pecan trees. One of the original suburbs of Dallas, it is a piece of Dallas history in the middle of thriving residential and commercial neighborhoods.

VPNA has no dues! If you live in Vickery Place (homeowner or renter), you are automatically a member of the Vickery Place Neighborhood Association.
