Get your fill at the Houston Press Menu of Menus. Dozens of restaurants will be serving up delicious samples of their signature dishes to a crowd of hungry foodsters, with lots of mingling, schmoozing and noshing going on. There will be a variety of food, from fresh and healthy delights by Fadis Mediterranean Grill to authentic Italian favorites by Italianos Restaurant. Cork Soakers, Rudyards and Luckys Pub will keep everyones glass full. (Oh, and if anyone wants some down-home comfort, Shipley Donuts will have fresh, hot doughnuts there for the taking.) VIP ticket hold-ers get an hours head start on everyone else with a 6 p.m. admission and free valet. General admission ticket holders have a 7 p.m. admission time. And if you, in any way, feel guilty about consuming 40,000 calories at one time, keep in mind that a portion of the proceeds benefit the Center for Hearing and Speech. 6 p.m. Spring Street Studios, 1824 Spring Street.
