Those who are interested in touring the Treasures of Ancient Egypt
exhibit at the Kimbell Art Gallery in Fort Worth should meet at the
gallery (3333 Camp Bowie Boulevard) at 2:30 PM on Saturday, July 26.
Advance tickets can be purchased from Ticketmaster. This is
advisable in case there is a line waiting to buy tickets.
You are also invited to meet me and perhaps others for lunch at 1 PM
at the Fortuna Italian Restaurant in Fort Worth. Here is what the
Dallas News had to say about this restaurant:
Fortuna Italian Restaurant & Pizza (***) has Mediterranean and
Colossseum scenes on the walls, and plastic grapes and ivy dangle
from faux arbors and wall-hung stone vessels. It's good, cheesy fun.
What's In A Name: Dishes dubbed "Fortuna" are cooked with mushrooms
and a dill sauce. Scallops plantini ($9) seems to be prepared much
the same way -- large and tender scallops in a savory,
mushroom-studded sauce that invites sopping with the wonderful fresh
rolls, a ghost of garlic, fresh parsley and a sprinkle of Parmesan.
Cannoli? Yum. A not-too-sweet crispy shell with a plenty-sweet
filling of whipped ricotta ($3.50).
Price: Entress $5 to $11.
Location: 5837 Camp Bowie Boulevard.
This location is about two miles further out Camp Bowie than the art
gallery. It will be quite easy to get from one to the other.
Hope to see you for lunch and the exhibit! RSVP, if possible. Thanks.
