On the heels of last week's buzzy event at J.Black's, CultureMap brings its Dine Around Houston series to Fusion Taco on Wednesday for an exclusive pop-up dinner at the gourmet food truck's new brick-and-morter location along Market Square Park.

Known for his clever blend of Asian and Latin American flavors, chef David Grossman has crafted an exclusive prix fixe menu to raise funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Houston. Tickets are $12 a person and include drink pairings as well as dessert.

With the school year officially underway, CultureMap has partnered with RAM Trucks to collect classroom supplies. Guests are encouraged to help fill the back of a Dodge pickup — which will be parked in front of the restaurant — with donations of new and gently-used books, puzzles, games and any other back-to-school staples.

Space is limited for Wednesday's event, which runs from 6 to 8 p.m. Click here to make you reservation. Here's a look at the special $12 menu.

Angus Steak Taco — Spicy black beans, chipotle BBQ, soy grilled onions, red cabbage slaw
Chicken Satay Taco — Coconut marinated grilled chicken, peanut sauce, red cabbage slaw
Blackened Tilapia — Avocado mash, chipotle crema, pineapple salsa
