One of the nation’s biggest charitable tasting events, Taste of the Nation, is returning to Houston on May 22. This year, it’s at Silver Street Studios at 2000 Edwards. All of the proceeds benefit No Kid Hungry, a non-profit organization that works to ensure that school-aged children have access to three nutritious meals a day. Tickets are available online. General admission is $125 each while VIP tickets, which include access to the tasting an hour early, VIP parking and a VIP-only gift bag, are $200 per person.
