The 13th annual Bayou City Arts Festival hits downtown this weekend, and it's not just for art lovers. A large section of the festival each year is devoted to wine and food, and this year's festival is no different. In fact, all of Sam Houston Park (along McKinney and Bagby) is devoted to wine and food with concession stands, wine cafes and an Epicurean Adventure area.
Meanwhile, downtown will also be playing host to another popular festival this weekend: the 19th annual Turkishfest, held at Jones Plaza. This is the first time that the Turkishfest will span two days -- Saturday and Sunday. Good for Turkish food and entertainment lovers; bad for anyone trying to park downtown this weekend. Along with many other food vendors, Cafe Pita +, one of our favorite restaurants in town, will be on hand with delicious Mediterranean cuisine.
