Dallas Observer's Description

In the words of Simon & Garfunkel, are you going to Scarborough Faire? If you’re into dressing up like a wench and gnawing on gigantic turkey legs, you really ought to be. This festival celebrating all the glory of the renaissance runs annually from April through Memorial Day and draws tens of thousands of people decked out in full-on medieval regalia to witness everything from jousting knights on horseback to turtle races.

    Try the Italian Ice. Best thong ever in the Texas heat!

  • Christie H. on 04/24/11

    The mead is great. 14%alc. Steak on a steak is excellent.

    Angel swords is the best shop for weapons. No Pansy Renny weapons. These are not for decoration! Cute girls selling you deadly weapons... What could be better!

    Queens delight and stir fry are perfect afternoon snack
