Kiss My Grits; Water Week at Houston Restaurants

DOWNTOWN — The true test of a chef may be how he cooks an omelet, but in the South we really only care about your grits. On April 5, chefs including Ryan Hildebrand, David Guerrero, and Jonathan Jones will compete in the annual Kiss My Grits competition hosted by Young Texans against Cancer at The Capitol at St. Germain. Tickets include tastings and cocktails for $100 per person. [Eaterwire]

MONTROSE — On March 21, all five Houston locations of Whole Foods will be participating in 5% Community Giving Day to benefit Houston Food Bank's Empty Bowls event. That means your neighborhood gourmet grocery will be donating 5% of the day's net sales. It's finally time for your organic water crackers to do some heavy lifting. Artists will also be on hand with their wares and a kids' pottery activity area will be open from from 2-4pm. [Eaterwire]

CITYWIDE — During World Water Week, March 19-25, diners can choose to pay $1 or more for tap water at participating restaurants. The money will benefit UNICEF Tap Project, which works to provide children across the world with clean water. In Houston, you can donate at the Grove, Tacos a Go-Go, BB's Cafe and more. For a complete list, visit the website. Two Paint the Town Blue events, with music, food and prizes, will take place on March 17 at Hughes Hangar and Pearl Bar. [Eaterwire]
