Houston Restaurant Weeks' sister charity dining event returns with $25 dinners and exciting participants
A new charity dining event from the organizers of Houston Restaurant Weeks will return in 2023. Eat Drink HTX will take place from February 15-28, organizer the Cleverly Stone Foundation announced.
Similar in style to Houston Restaurant Weeks, restaurants that participate in Eat Drink HTX serve prix fixe menus at set price points for brunch, lunch, and dinner. Whereas HRW prices are $25 for lunch and brunch and $39 or $55, Eat Drink is much less expensive — $15 for lunch and brunch and $20 or $25 for dinner. The lower price point allows for more casual and fast casual establishments to participate in the event.
So far, participating restaurants include establishments such as Phat Eatery, Craft Pita, City Cellars HTX, B.B. Lemon, and Xin Chao. Restaurants interested in joining the event are invited to contact organizer Katie Stone via email (email@example.com).
As with HRW, participating restaurants will donate a fixed amount of money per meal sold to a local charity — $1 per $15 meal, $2 per $20 meal, and $3 per $25 meal. In 2023, the event will benefit the Houston Food Bank and Children at Risk, which seeks to improve the quality of life for Texas children through strategic research, public policy analysis, education, collaboration, and advocacy, according to a release.
“Children at Risk is honored to be partnering with Eat Drink HTX in 2023 and is grateful to be a recipient of the proceeds from this initiative,” president and CEO Dr. Bob Sanborn said in a statement. “Every dollar donated to Children at Risk helps drive evidence-based change by speaking out on behalf of children to help ensure every child can reach their full potential.”
