The 7th Annual Houston PressMenu of Menus Extravaganzais food heaven. That may seem like a bold and slightly sacrilegious assertion, but the chance to sample specially prepared signature dishes from more than 30 local restaurants is enough to make anyone feel moved by the gastronomical spirit. For $35, youll get the opportunity to indulge in the best fare offered by Houston eateries such as Pierson and Company BBQ, Sylvias Enchilada Kitchen and Auntie Changs Dumpling House. In addition to the profusion of fine food, therell also be beer, wine and vodka tastings. (Its called an extravaganza for good reason.) MOM is not only about satisfying your desire for some of the citys best dishes and drinks, though proceeds from the event benefit Discovery Green and the Center for Hearing and Speech, so youll be feasting for a good cause. Local R&B veterans Faye Robinson and the Mid City Players are set to provide the dinner music. (Keep in mind that for a slightly larger donation, you get VIP admission an hour before the hungry masses.) 7 to 10 p.m. Discovery Green, 1500 McKinney.
