You mean, like, Baked Alaska?



Sorry, but I just don't think this got enough paper from us this year. Saturday is the 19th Annual Taste of the Nation... national... tasting... thing. For $100 (or $125, depending on how very important you are), you get to snack on delectable prepared by 30 chefs from Central Florida's finest restaurants. (So that cute Wendy's fry cook won't be there?)

The whole ordeal is put on by Share Our Strength, an organization devoted to feeding starving children. In fact, they list it as the "nation's premier culinary event to end childhood hunger" (as opposed to the nation's premier culinary event to begin childhood diabetes, traditionally called Easter)(and while I'm in parentheticals, why don't they just give all the food from this thing to hungry children). Proceeds for this event go locally to the Coalition for the Homeless of Central Florida and Second Harvest Food Bank (who will not be employing Jonathan Swift's modest proposal to solving this problem, pussies).

It's at the Convention Center and it's from 6:30 p.m. to 10 and... you know what? Just go here.
