The Art of Eating and Drinking at the Prairie Village Art Fair - 2014 Edition

I may not be able to define art, but I know it when I see it. I also know a good time when it's staring me in the face and the Prairie Village Art Fair is just that. This annual event takes place this weekend and as it's practically in my backyard I thought I'd share some eating and drinking information to help make it worth your while.

Foodwise this art fair has come a long way. Not only do you have nationally acclaimed French bistro Cafe Provence (previous review) right in the middle of the action but add to that Story (2013 James Beard semi-finalist chef; Food & Wine magazine's 2013 winner for The People's Best New Chef: Midwest), Tavern in the Village (locals love this place), and STANDEES (bar/restaurant/movie theater).

This year it looks like sangria may actually outnumber baby strollers. I think everyone is selling their version of this wonderful summer drink. If you try a couple think about posting your favorite in the comments section at the bottom of this post.

Information below was provided by the establishments themselves (with a couple of comments added from me). Unless noted below, restaurants will be cash-only for outside, patio, and tent purchases.
