Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Next Thursday, April 27, more than three dozen Houston restaurants will donate a percentage of sales to AIDS Foundation Houston during the annual Dining Out for Life fundraiser.

“We’re working to end HIV/AIDS, and Dining Out for Life helps raise funds and awareness that push us closer to our goal," Kelly Young, chief executive officer of AIDS Foundation Houston, said in a press release. The fundraiser was founded in 1991 by an ActionAIDS volunteer in Philadelphia. Today the dining event takes place in more than 60 cities, and AIDS Foundation Houston has participated in the event since get-go.

This year, you can support AFH and its wonderful programs, which help thousands of Houstonians living with HIV/AIDS, along with reducing HIV infections, when you order breakfast, lunch or dinner at one of these mighty fine establishments. There's a lot to choose from here with tacos, chicken sandwiches, upscale Vietnamese, Creole, pizza and more options. Have at it:
