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

It's not too late to get in on our huge food and wine extravaganza this Tuesday; tickets for Menu of Menus are still available, but going fast. If you purchase them in advance, the tickets are only $35, but go up to $45 at the door. And you can still purchase VIP tickets for $75 that allow you access to the event an hour before the hungry masses hit at 7 p.m. to sample the food from more than 40 of Houston's best restaurants. All proceeds from the ticket sales benefit Discovery Green and the Center for Hearing and Speech, so snap your tickets up today.

This weekend is chock full of fun food events, like the Brenner's On The Bayou Wine Festival on Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m., the annual Texas Crawfish & Music Festival in Old Town Spring all weekend long and the 2010 Japan Fest taking place throughout the weekend in Hermann Park. If you don't take advantage of this lovely spring weather to attend at least one of these events, we don't know what's wrong with you. Get out there!

You'll want to be the first on board for the Buffalo Bayou Partnership's newest activity: Foodie Floats. This series of tours features a leisurely trip down Buffalo Bayou in a comfortable, partly-shaded pontoon boat (just in case it gets a little warm) while you sample local cheese and beer from the Houston Dairymaids and the Saint Arnold Brewery. The inaugural tour takes place on April 15, with subsequent tours on April 29 and May 13. The cost is $50 per person and reservations are required. Call the Buffalo Bayou Partnership at 713-752-0314, extension 3 for more information or to reserve your spot.

And coming up next weekend is the Galveston Food & Wine Fest, a weekend-long festival highlighting the best the island has to offer. Restaurants like 901 Postoffice, Luigi's Restorante, M&M Restaurant and the brand-new Olympia Grill are offering special multi-course prix-fixe wine pairing dinners on Saturday night. The wine tasting in Saengerfest Park is already sold out, but that doesn't mean you can't still go and enjoy a pleasant wine dinner overlooking the Gulf on Saturday evening.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
