From BBQ to caviar: Houston's top food events from now through Thanksgiving

HOUSTON, Texas -- Hurricane Harvey may have pushed back some of this fall's food events, but the next two months offer tempting experiences almost every weekend through Thanksgiving. Whether a person wants to hobnob with James Beard Award-winning celebrity chefs or sip carefully selected fine wines, this roster should suit almost any taste.

Best of all, every event listed has some sort of charitable component. After all, what is the point of eating well if one is not also doing some good?

Southern Smoke - October 22
For the third year in a row, Chris Shepherd has gathered two of the nation's top pitmasters (Aaron Franklin and Rodney Scott), a few of his fellow James Beard Award winners (Ashley Christensen, John Besh, etc.) and some of Houston's best chefs (Ryan Pera, Justin Yu, etc.) for a barbecue-themed bash. New this year are VIP areas at Hay Merchant and Blacksmith with premium wines and spirits. An affiliated silent auction has already gone live with a wide range of memorabilia, fine wine, trips, and culinary experiences.
