Contests and Promotions

‘Best Bite’ marks Stroll success

The history of pairing wine with complementary food stretches back centuries. Epicureans long ago figured out that a light-bodied chardonnay, say, tastes better when accented with seafood, and vice versa. So organizers of Sherman’s Stroll on the Square weren’t exactly reinventing the wheel when they introduced a cooking competition as a tasty new wrinkle in the city’s annual wine tour for 2014.

‘Best Bite’ competition added to Sherman Stroll Friday night

Downtown Sherman Preservation and Revitalization’s annual Stroll on the Square event is slated for a major expansion this year, as organizers aim to attract a crowd Friday Night for one of Sherman’s most popular yearly events.
