Mark your calendars, because you don’t want to miss these deliciously fun culinary happenings:

August brings the return of Deli Month to Kenny & Ziggy’s, 1743 Post Oak, in benefit of Holocaust Museum Houston. Joined by delis across the nation, K&Z will offer a multi-choice, three-course menu during lunch and dinner for $45 plus tax and gratuity, with 10 percent of each meal sold going to the HMH, providing funds for the museum’s education programs. For each person purchasing the special Deli Month meal, complimentary tickets to Holocaust Museum Houston will be included. Bringing attention to both Deli Month and the museum, Kenny & Ziggy’s will once again host a private luncheon for all Holocaust survivors in the area on Tuesday, August 9.
